[London Fashion Week Hoopla]…Part 2

Perhaps I missed something, but there didn’t seem to be too many designers that showed at London Fashion Week this week. Of course there were the greats (like Gucci and Fendi whom I loved) and some designers that I hadn’t heard of before, but overall there just didn’t seem to be as many collections in London as there were in NY. Or maybe I’m just antsy to see what Viktor & Rolf debut…

Here’s some faves!

Gucci

David Koma

Fendi

Prada

Francesco Scognamiglio

Kinder Aggugini

And other collections I enjoyed…

Luisa Beccaria – Beautiful sheers & florals

Alberta Ferretti – gorgeous floral and taupe sheers

Naeem Khan – punches of color and tons of nods to Sari inspiration

Marios Schwab – loved the futuristic silhouettes & punches of orange and baby blue

Holly Fulton – Each piece was different, and while some of them were over done to me, I did like the versatility

[London Fashion Week Hoopla]…Part 1

So, the fashion week circus has moved to London where the collections are usually a bit more creative than in NY. So far, I’ve loved the color that seems to be in many of the collections. Plus there are a lot of interesting silhouettes. Here are some of my faves thus far…

Pringle of Scotland

Issa

Burberry Prorsum

Jonathan Saunders

I also enjoyed…

Jaeger London – chic collection of separates in jewel tones and silks

Louise Gray – for the appeal of pattern mixing and matching

Unique – tons of 70’s inspired halters and colors

Todd Lynn – always a fan of his utilitarian/futuristic jackets
