On day 4 I went to the Hushan Zhang presentation (separate blog coming up) and it was one of my favourite collections of LFW for many reasons, which I will gush about later. But for now, here’s some amazing looks from Day 4.
- Peter Pilotto’s Spanish style boxy bolero jackets – the embroidery was influenced by the works of Spanish renaissance artists.
- The fabulous capes of Antonio Berardi. On my wish-list (or at least something similar – try using www.SnapFashion.co.uk to find yours!)
- Erdem’s sexy boucle and lace combos and of course his delicious wintery florals – violet and lemon – yum.
Burberry’s transparent trench coats and cute heart prints were super alongside luxe camel and leather with lots of eyelet detailing. It’s love!
I couldn’t wear it but I adored Tom Ford’s glam, maximalist colour and print clashing – a real departure from his last collection. Maybe the craziness of London has rubbed off on him.
J.W. Anderson’s masterful mixing of women’s and menswear was plain to see. He’s also joined the dress/skirt with trousers club and I detect a bit of nineties influence in the collection.
Giles’ golden lazer-cut pieces and other-worldly flowing dresses were impressive but I didn’t like the beauty look – effective and brooding yes, but I thought it made the models look tired!
Christopher Kane’s kilts and floral appliqué pieces were some of my favourites of this season (so far!) I enjoyed the glam take on camouflage print, leather fastening details, beautiful silk maxi skirts with super soft knits and so much more. If I had the cash, I’d snap up a lot of this collection!
Michael van der Ham made holey knackered material into an art form, but I loved his patterned more polished pieces in rich blues and mossy greens.
