London fashion week; day one round up.
This year despite being house bound with a cold I'm adoring the fact that I can still keep up with the latest shows at London fashion week online with live streams of the shows. Fabulous! I can watch armed with a mug of tea and my most glamorous slippers.
With day one finished, this morning sees the launch of day two's shows. So far I've been enjoying the mix of classic cuts and traditional twists. Here's a few of my favourites from day ones shows.
Paul Costello's show had a wondrous mix, famous for his unique, unexpected materials; quality tailoring and classical shapes.
With notes of tweed, and checks mixed with metallics. Amongst classic cuts and gothic brocades.
A similar style that was carried across in Caroline Charles show with notes of traditional cuts on checks, amongst leopard prints, and faux fur.
I adored Felder felder's collection of black mini dresses with ruffled notes and a heavy gothic feel. Carried through the collection with muted tones on ruffled slips and sleeves.
Overall there was a return to gothic glamour with a classic cut. Notes of leathers and pvcs on classic cut dresses; through to opulent furs.
I'm looking forward to seeing today's shows, particularly PPQ with their recent collections at Very.co.uk featuring a bright twist on a traditional mod style; and seeing what Henry Holland can pull out of his quiff.
