So I’m not at London Fashion Week due to a combination of factors, one of which is this pathetic-looking creature and her unfortunate meeting with a petrol-fuelled vehicle, but I have been keeping up with them on Twitter, online in general and via the live stream.
Of what I have seen so far, highlights include:
Dion Lee’s modern sporty vision in Neoprene, leather and laser printed detailing. I loved this kind of fishtailed peplum. (Pic via Fashionista)
Todd Lynn’s urban jungle, safari chic show – opening with olive greens and moving to reds and buttery yellows. It was lovely, unexpected and edgy, but still totally wearable. (Pic via Style.com)
John Rocha’s dark, romantic mother-of-the-bride fantasy – all structured dresses and over-the-top hats reminiscent of fields of roses and 1980s pot pourri … in the best way possible. (Pic, again, Style.com)
Holly Fulton’s Hawaiian groupthink; the candy-coloured espadrilles on the models’ feet were just the icing on this gorgeous cake. Sometimes more is more, and this collection of looks made a real splash. (Pic via the Telegraph)
The shiny, happy watercoloured separates at House of Holland – I wasn’t a huge fan of last season’s cloud prints and over-the-top neon houndstooths (houndsteeth?) but this was on the money. Not to mention that FROW. (Pics via Getty)
Acne’s maxi-maxi skirt complete with buckled pillarbox red leather waistcoat. Amazing. Fashion Editor at Large is right; Acne really does bring out the clothes you want to wear. (pic via FashEdAtLarge)
