London Fashion Week in bloom

I don’t know what happened to the English sobriety, but as far as I know, this year, the catwalk in London were full of flowers and colours. And, as a surprise for a girls that loves black and white, I loved them. Here are the higjlights of London Fashion Week SS17.

But, for just a quick review of London Fashion Week…

  • the gingham pattern is back in business (and I saw them at Toga, Peter Pilotto, House of Holland, Simone Rocha and Molly Goddard.
  • the sleeves grew bigger and bigger. So the puffy sleeves were seen at Marques’Almeida, Simone Rocha, David Koma and Ashley William, an even on the classical trenches of Burberry (photo up). And some XXL sleeves (over the end of the fingers) were put on clothes at Pringle of Scotland, Joseph, Mother of Pearl and David Koma.
  • a lot of khakis – Burberry, Simone Rocha, Barbara Casasola, J.W. Anderson and Belstaff.
  • some distressed denim at Marques’Almeida (one of the pioneer of this particular trend), Topshop Unique, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and Versus.
  • the fairy tale gorgeous presentation of Sophia Webster.

What I did like in terms of flowers? The enormous jackets at Marques’Almeida (I need that jacket!), the beautiful dark silver dress from Erdem, the burgundy flowered dress at Simone Rocha (photo up), the leather details at Versus Versace (and I will be always a fan of the house leather pieces), the drawings at Peter Pilotto and the psychedelic patterns at Mary Katrantzou. Of course, I could not forget the Christopher Kane collection, with a lot of beautiful clothes and… very very ugly shoes (tell me whatever you want, but I don’t think the Crocs should be promoted as fashionable shoes…). Just saying.
