Today is the last day from London Fashion week and here are my favourite shows from the past week!
The most important and anticipated show from the week was without a doubt Burberry Prosum. This British brand always has one of the most star studded crowds, except Chanel. Anna Wintour, Harry Styles and Tinie Tempah were among others that attended the show.
Chief creative officer Christopher Bailey said it was the Bloomsbury set’s country retreat at Charleston in East Sussex, England, that fueled his imagination. Flowers were printed on scarfs, trench coats and dresses. But the most talked about piece, was the "blanket" some models got with their initials on and who wouldn't want that?
Mary Katrantzou is a designer I absolutely adore. The designs from her dresses are almost too beautiful to be true. In recent collections Katranzou used 3D-like prints in her designs but this season she opted for a more romantic way of decorating her clothes through lace, brocades and pleats. I think this might even be her best collection so far.
This was Matthew Williamson’s first collection with new head of design Danielle Scutt, who used to show her own line at London Fashion Week. Their mission was the give the brand's bohemian style a facelift. The show was an explosion of patterns, sequins but also with a punk edge rather than bohemian. The first collaboration between the two designers was a great success in my opinion.
I guess Alice Temperley must be a huge fan of the English royal family because her collection had many royal like items in it. The first series of looks had many royal blue items, the next looks had elegant capes and to finish it off Temperley included also some princess like gowns.
Nonetheless my favourite looks were the folkloric pieces with lots of organza and flower prints.
