Best of London Fashion Week SS17

There were some pretty low key looks shown in London for Spring. The focus was on flawless skin with the perfect amount of glow. Brushed up brows, and with the exception of a bold heart shaped lip at Mary Katrantzou, the neutral lip reigned supreme.

Special Feature: Markus Lupfer Geometric Garden

 

markus_lupferThe first presentation I attended this past London fashion week was Markus Lupfer. What I loved was even though this was the autumn collection, so many of the pieces felt like they could work for all seasons. The Markus Lupfer girl is quirky and sophisticated. Not only can she transition from work to play but also from autumn to spring too.

Belstaff AW16

The Belstaff presentation during London fashion week drew inspiration from Edith “Jackie” Ronne’s great Antarctic expedition. The collection of fur, leather, and wool was derived from a wintry landscape, with textures of snow, icebergs and rocks and a nod to Inuit dress. Lead makeup artist Maria Comparetto’s design included naturally flushed cheeks on top of highlighted skin,

Best of London Fashion Week

LFW_FW16

London fashion week remains the shortest of the four fashion capitals. Some how squeezed into those few days is a plethora of colourful creativity. I especially enjoyed Burberry’s departure from classic beauty to rock and roll cool. Backstage at Mary Katrantzou the brief was to create crimson heart shaped lips,

Wilson PK AW15

My last presentation to attend for the week was Wilson PK. This young London based designer was inspired by Cubism, the gentrification of artist communities within London and the social hierarchy of the city. What I loved about the collection was the unique use of texture, and the clean bright colour palette.

Belstaff AW15

A hideous combination of rain and wind made the bus, tube, walk, and cab, commute interesting. However the Belstaff presentation was well worth battling the elements for. Set at the Old Sessions House (I’m familiar with the location, as this is where the Alexander McQueen sample sale is often held) once inside smart looking waiters offered mulled wine,

Daks AW15

After I left Felder Felder I had just over half an hour to run down to Somerset House for Daks. This time I made haste so as to be at the front of the queue. Unfortunately it turned out despite being at the front of the line I was actually in the wrong line.

Felder Felder AW15

Day 1 of London fashion week and my first show to attend was Felder Felder. Standing in line outside the Freemasons’ hall in Covent Garden I realized a few things: I should have brought my fur, London was much colder than I had anticipated, and I shouldn’t have lingered in Pret for so long then I would be further ahead in the queue!
