The fashion baton was passed onto London Fashion Week this week, showcasing its best designers and their amazing collections. From cool and diverse styles to English-inspired tailored looks, London was a treat to our eyes! So let’s take a look at what our friends across the pond served up for Fall/Winter 2012.
Eclectic is Vivienne Westwood’s middle name and fortunately her Red Label show did not disappoint! Tailored plaid separates and dresses paired with edgy mosaic prints were a nod to the designer’s punk roots. Why not add some safety pins?!
Cool androgyny was achieved with Paul Smith’s collection through sleek tailored jackets and velvet cigarette pants that screamed luxury. The pajama-like tops were beautiful yet masculine!
Matthew Williamson’s show consisted of rich brocades in gold and green and full-length chiffon dresses that evoked bohemian elegance. The orange and robin’s egg gowns were exotic yet romantic!
Duality was definitely a theme for Antonio Berardi with color block dresses and suits. But what really took our breath away were the evening dresses encrusted with swirls of molded sequins that resembled coral. Such detail!
Outerwear was king at Burberry Prorsum with reimagined yet flattering puffer coats and trench coats perfect for any young fashionista! Peplum skirts and cinched in bow belts showed off the right curves!
McQ Alexander McQueen
Alexander McQueen’s affordable line McQ showcased its first ever runway show at LFW with gorgeous tea-length gowns printed with oak leaves and colorful flowers that climbed to the neckline. The white gown stole the show!
