London fashion week; day two round up.
As day two kicked off there were stunning dresses a plenty on the catwalk; with clashing tones and prints a plenty, the braver the combination the more stunning.
It was a little different than expected viewing the shows of the day; the two shows that I'd most been looking forward to viewing, PPQ & House of Holland were the two that I wasn't as surprised by. The collection of muted blacks and golds in PPQ's collection was still wonderfully stylish but not as brashish as I'd hoped. As for House of holland's collection I've never been a huge fan; his tights range for Pretty polly did surprise me but this mainline collections themselves always seem too over powering.
On to the personal highlights; I adored the collection at Charles Anastase's show; with a show bursting with colour, from wonderfully clashing reds mixed with blues, topped off with more ruffles and patchwork prints.
The highlight of the show in particular for me had to be the blue shift dress and red rights combo, it offsets so wonderfully!
To the dresses at Kinder Aggugini's collection which were jaw droopingly stunning; with a gorgeous floor length stitch effect number; not to forget the brocade print mini dress.
And with a collection of classic cut pieces, from skirt suits to a darling plain black cardi and skinny jeans combo.
Finishing off with Mary Katrantzou, with a collection of stunning printed satin dresses; with a delightful contrasting faux clincher effect. With sumptuous prints, reminiscent of elegant silk scarves.
Day threes already on a roll with Betty Jackson's show at the early start I'm already looking forward to seeing the gallery from her show. There's such a fantastic array of designers on show today, from Vivienne Westwood's red label show later today, to Aquascutum and Matthew Williamson this afternoon. I'm quite looking forward to seeing what they all pull out of their hats for their collections.
