London fashion week; day four round up.
Yesterday saw more mixed fabrics a plenty, with crinkles of pvc, atop lycras, furs mixed with nylons, and much more checks and knit wears carrying on the autumn trend.
I adored Antonio Berardi's mix of gothic with glam chic; I'd heard the term gloth tossed about last month and this fits it perfectly. Oodles of black, sensual loose fabrics, mixed with velvets and dark dark lipsticks.
A look carried throughout the day, to Christopher Kane's show with a gothic meets Eastern influence feel. With floral brocades on black mini dresses with an oriental feel, to delicate laces and notes of pvc.
With a more grown up glamour look at Roksanda Ilincic's show, with more of a classic glamour feel. With sumptuous silks, taffeta's, and delicate knits.
Whilst over at Jaeger there was more of an equestrian feel to the show, with tall hats, quilted jackets, and boots. Teamed up with traditional notes of tweeds, suede's, and knit wears.
A traditional look carried through to Paul Smith's collection abundant with tweeds, checks, and knits teamed up with tall riding inspired boots, ruffles, and plenty of traditional British whit.
With the key trends already well set in pace over the past 4 days today looks to be an interesting mix as we start to head towards the end of the week.
