It's all gone very grunge-y and oversized, perfect. PVC skirts, sequins, cropped mohair jumper- it definitely creates a unique style. The dusty pink coat in the middle needs to come and live in my wardrobe (or just anything in the colour- for that matter). I shall be binning all clothes that aren't that colour this autumn winter (I joke). What I love is all the different textures, I noticed loads of faux fur, silky blouses, knits, sequins- you name it, it's in there. I also watched this
House of Holland
Henry Holland confirmed it for me that I NEED TO MAKE MYSELF A BALLERINA/MIDI/PROM SKIRT REALLY QUICKLY. In true House of Holland style, the show was full of funky prints, oversized knits and clusters of jewels. With 70s/80s influences there were some really gorgeous plum and navy shades- not forgetting a seriously bright, neon pink, orange and green. Zomg.
It goes from one extreme to the other. You think you've seen enough from all the bright colours at the House of Holland show, and suddenly you're seeing plastic bags pinned to peoples heads. WHATEVER NEXT?! TOILET ROLL BROACH?! Oh, erm, wait, yes, that's been done already too. I absolutely love all of her work, because, let's be honest, it's absolutely bonkers. Floral patterns influenced by the 70s, mucho metallics, and oversized necklaces, this definitely isn't the kind of thing you'll catch me wearing while I'm standing at the bus stop. There's something kind of 'My Parents Are Aliens'-esque about it, but even then, I think this takes wacky to a whole new level.
Never before have typewriters looked so trendy. Inspired by the 1950s, it was full of oh-so-sophisticated tailored suits, super girly dainty dresses and t-bar patent shoes (yay!). I loved the contrast between the more subtle camel/beige and navy shades against the shocking pink and yellows, not at the same time- of course! Pointed collars and buttoned up cardigans is what I need to get my hands on. I'm an Orla Kiely fan girl. Now all I need to do is master that bee-hive...........
Did you have a favourite show from LFW? Or does your head feel totally done in by this fashion overload that you need to spend the remainder of the week in your jimjams? (I don't blame you). I also wanted to mention the Burberry Prorsum show because I can honestly say, it was the most beautiful thing I've ever watched. I'm not really a Burberry kinda gal as it all seems a bit to posh for me but the whole show was really atmospheric and kinda magical (if that's the right word choice?). If you haven't seen it yet, it's definitely worth having a watch. It's when Tom Odell appeared from behind this massive moving wall that I was like oooooooooooh myyyyyyyyy gooooooddddddd
and so I decided to watch the show a further 5 times.
now playing: the music from the Burberry Show (just pop it on in the background)
