Happy Saturday Morning :). Today I thought I’d bring to you my favourite looks from London Fashion Week, which can be used as inspiration for shopping and outfits you might want to put together! Obviously there are LOADS of fashion shows to choose from, but I have my personal favourites which I will run down here.
For me, sometimes one of the best things to do is to sit with a cup of tea, maybe a chocolate malted milk biscuit and a good browse on the Vogue website. I LOVE this website, it has the most amazing quality pictures (which you will see here as that’s where I got mine from), it’s really user friendly and just, really REALLY COOL.
Settle down troops, prepare to feast on some fashion:
This is my favourite show of all that appeared at London Fashion Week (and that’s saying something). Although I’m into make up and shiz, generally speaking I’m not a massively girly girl. However, there’s something about the romanticism and overall FLOWINESS of a Valentino catwalk show.
Below is a classic example of a Valentino: Gorgeous, romantic, beaded and muted tones.
A slightly shorter and more contemporary version is the image below. I love how this reminds me of the illustrated children’s books you would get back in the day, and this outfit is essentially a dark blue sky barfed onto a dress (not the greatest description I know but it fits for me).
Anyone who loves fashion will know about Jenny Packham. Known for beautiful flowing dresses, she is a massive name in the world of fashion.
This dress is designed to be a stand out piece, but it is still more modern with a shorter style. Doesn’t stop it looking like it’s itchy to wear though…despite this it’s gorgeous, and I like how full the skirt is compared to the waist.
Honestly, I’ve never really seen much from Zac Posen before. I really love how different this dress is to anything I’ve ever seen before. The cape style neckline and back is really chic, and it looks VERY EXPENSIVE (I know that my suspicions are warranted here.) The monochrome style is really understated, but it has enough embellishment to make it stand out from the crowd.
Again, the looks in the Elie Saab show were very different to anything I’ve seen before. I really like the colour palette used in this show, as it harks back to the more autumnal shades but gives it a spring update. The vertical lines on these pieces are not only very flattering on the figure, but it really shows the quality of the material and tells you for a fact, this is a luxury range. There’s something dark and moody about it, without being too Adams family/Beetlejuice.
