From New York we go to London, the home of mod, punk, and rock and roll. London fashion week is typically shorter than the other cities, because there are less shows. But, that doesn’t mean that they dont show amazing collections and pieces!!
My favorites from London-town, are Issa, Temperley London, Moschino Cheap and Chic, Erdem, L’Wren Scott, and of course Burberry.
Issa: Issa became well-known because one of her biggest fans is Kate Middleton and wears her dresses regularly. And, there’s good reason that the Duchess of Cambridge loves her. Her dresses are so pretty, yet so effortless and chic. I could totally see women throwing on these dresses for a quick shopping trip or lunch with the girls.
Temperley London: Temperley is the perfect mix of a British rose and a glamour girl. Some of her looks are prim and proper and perfect for a garden party, while some are perfect for a glamorous night out on the town, while some are the perfect mix of both. I also love how even though this is an autumn/winter collection, theres a significant amount of white pieces. Especially the all white look below, which doesn’t look out of place at all in winter.
Moschino Cheap and Chic: Cheap and Chic’s parent brand is Italian, and I think it is perfect that this collection shows at London because it is a real mix of London cool with Italian sexy. The pink skirt is my new obsession since I love throwing in a bright piece in an otherwise monotone look.
Erdem: I love lace. Absolutely love. To the point where my mom tells me I have enough lace tops and dresses. This collection by Erdem is like my dream come true. The looks are so feminine but the deep colors give them an edge that is perfect for fall and winter.
L’Wren Scott: Three words: Party Girl Perfection. L’Wren Scott always epitomizes glamour and fun. The gold pieces are perfect for a fun night out, a cocktail party or just a glamorous night out with your boyfriend or husband. There will definitely be some of these pieces on the red carpet soon.
Burberry: I have wanted a Burberry trench from since before Burberry became popular again in the early 2000’s. I love how every season and every collection, Christopher Bailey is able to re-imagine the trench and bring it up to date and make it current. The ready-to-wear pieces are also amazing. I love the heart patterns and leopard patterns on the tops and skirts. Can’t wait to see the fashionista wearing these pieces come winter.
Milan recap coming soon!!
