London fashion week; day three round up.
Day three saw an ever abundant range of styles on show; overall there was more signature checks, and knits on show through the day. From jagged checks in Richard Nicholl's collection; to the offset cuts by Vivenne Westwood.
Another style that emerged was futuristic chic; Jasper Conran's collection took on a futuristic cyber feel with reflective prints, and retro cuts giving it a bit of a Blade runner feel; a similar style carried across Louise Goldin's show with more restrictive cuts.
Vivienne westwood's collection took on the check trend with her more traditional tartan prints; in a vibrant pink offset with stunning shades of orange, and red with her twist on traditional cuts.
Betty Jackson's collection was abundant with denims and gold shades, luscious knit wears, and florals.
Whereas Meadham Kirchhoff's collection reminded me of traditional manic street preachers chic; taking touches of plastic tiaras and bangles, mixed with leopard prints, gowns, brocades, and mixed prints. Particularly the panda eye make up, it was almost channeling Nicky Wire minus the hoover; and if you are wondering yes this what my teenage wardrobe was like plus an extra feather boa for ultimate msp chic.
With such an eclectic mix on the catwalk throughout day three it's going to be interesting to see what today throws up as we reach mid fashion week. Obviously I'm quite looking to Paul Smith's collection later today, amongst Pringle's show afterwards.
