I guess it’s called « ready to wear » for a reason…the kind that translates as nothing less than London Fashion Week, you were mind-blowing and filled with creative genius, I await your garment’s arrivals to hit the racks because I am most certainly ready to wear you.
Antonio Berardi strutted a romantic light palette, complimented by sheer looks, big and round shoulders, bright red and killer leopard and crocodile prints.
Christopher Kane played the wild card (and succeeded, as per usual) with black, metal-rimmed cutouts, lace, flowy dresses and hardcore prints of flowers, arrows, words, you name it…
Erdem most definitely captured dark romance at its finest; all things black and white featured beautiful lace, and embellishments in the form of feathers, fringe and a serious sheer appeal.
Burberry Prorsum played on delicate pastels with not-so-subtle studded embellishments, a few neutral basics, the perfect polka-dot and…the new khaki coat–shoulders rounded to perfection.
Peter Pilotto has never ceased to amaze me in the creative digital print department. Some serious colorful structured pieces were complemented with beautiful prints, cutouts, lace, florals and all things bold. If this is the essence of futuristic, I am ready for 2014 (and every year after.)
Topshop Unique harbored beautiful and bold contrasting colors, like purple and green, trousers of all shapes and forms, spaghetti strap dresses, naked backs and fun and easy to wear prints.
Temperley London redefines florals after every season. This time was no different; the beautiful pink palette, drop-dead lace and floral appliqués and mastery of combining leopard and florals was a total hit.
J.W. Cooper had an eclectic mix going on. From sheer baby doll dresses, to origami-style dresses and dresses that bare it all, the designer clearly knew a couple of things about next-level creativity.
House of Holland set the scene with hazy clouds but left us anything but dozing off. Tiny leopard print stamped with large, bright orange flowers, mini dresses, checkered prints, strong metallics and some religious prints were basically a ’90’s too cool for school kind of thing.
