More London Fashion Week Highlights
If you weren’t lucky enough to join the likes of Sienna Miller, Mario Testino, Kanye West and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the front row, there were numerous ways to watch Burberry’s runway show.
There were live streams, tweets of every look and live Instagram pictures from inside the venue. Christopher Bailey updated the signature trench coat with tribal and batik prints. This new exotic inspiration didn’t stop there with the collection being adorned with intricate detailing like wooden beads lining hoods of coats and jackets and use of raffia weave.
While Roksanda Illincic may be known for a her glam eveningwear; she showed she could do daywear just as well as the rest. She went for colour combinations that were refreshing and would be perfect for a summer’s day.
She also produced skirts, shift dresses and loose silk shirts that may be simple-looking but have an understated chic. And in case you thought she’d abandoned her roots; she just simplified her evening dresses for a more versatile look.
London Fashion saw the first time Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern was transformed into a fashion week venue. Matthew Williamson along with his celeb following of Sienna Miller, models Poppy Delevigne and Dree Hemmingway and Rachel Zoe took in a collection that was filled with statement evening gowns and polished ready-to-wear looks. Among our favourites were the shorts paired with printed blouses, the skinny cigarette pants, the chic cropped jackets and the heels by Charlotte Olympia. While elements of Matthew’s boho chic that made him famous teetered into the collection, the overall feel was one of sophistication.
