Thanks to London Fashion Week
It was only a short matter of time before London Fashion Week would sweep the city away and bring in the best imaginable for fall. Though it does kind of make me want to snatch some of these coats straight off the runway and cuddle up to them immediately. Here follow some serious collection highlights.
Peter Pilotto played with creams and neutrals, while also playing up a fun mix of colors sprawled throughout various sweaters and coats. He definitely vamped up the coat department with different furs and seams to make for a cozy and sexy overthrow.
Burberry portrayed a varying sequence of prints, patchwork and fringe, while bringing back the famed poncho from last season in different colors and textures. The collection was anything but classic, but the bohemian vibe embedded into every piece made it all so easy to wear, and a strong desire to own!
Mary Katrantzou is undoubtedly the master of eclectic prints, but this collection featured a nice melange of neutrals, toned down florals, and brocade. Then the wild part came in, which included a fabulous mix of bright colors, varying textures, exaggerated ruffled hems, and coats that double as museum art.
Jonathan Saunders proved that bigger and bolder is sometimes better. The ultra-bright and out-there collection featured a 60’s influence with fun and whimsical prints that inevitably encourage instant happiness and upbeat energy.
Preen simply killed it. If a fairytale hippie-like goddess doesn’t convey the essence of the collection, than words make it hard to express. A few menswear-inspired pieces appeared, but the strong ones seem to be the bolder coats and funky dresses.
