Fall 2014 RTW : Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Mary Katrantzou and Matthew Williamson

Fall 2014 RTW : Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Mary Katrantzou and Matthew Williamson

More awesomeness from London Fashion Week fall collections! Vivienne Westwood's Red Label line, Mary Katrantzou and Matthew Williamson!     Vivienne Westwood Red Label The collection goes back in time recreating signature looks. It's wearable fashion and outerwear. People who desperately need good designer work wear will love this. I do like the blue and grey plaid suit and the ruby jumper. That red coat with the lapels forming a heart is just gorgeous. I like the black finale dress as well.   Mary Katrantzou The lack of busy prints is surprising but…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : House of Holland, Julien Macdonald and Pringle of Scotland

Fall 2014 RTW : House of Holland, Julien Macdonald and Pringle of Scotland

The Julien Macdonald fall collection is stellar! Also reviewing, House of Holland and Pringle of Scotland. I did not intend that sentence to turn out that way...     House of Holland It's a very electric collection but not really for me. I don't really like this particular fir and polka dot combination. The metallic skirts and printed trousers are some of the things I do like though.   Julien Macdonald Blown away by how stunning this collection is. It's revealing but not overtly sexual. It's so hard to pick favourites here but…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Preen, Marios Schwab and Topshop Unique

Fall 2014 RTW : Preen, Marios Schwab and Topshop Unique

Pretty fall collections from Preen, Marios Schwab and Topshop at London Fashion Week!   Preen With it's second collection Preen Line in tow, Preen is proving to be quite the label. Another Star Wars reference! This time dedicated solely to Darth Vader and again not entirely convincing like the Rodarte one. I'm not sure if its endorsement for the new movie or the motive, but either way I'm not too happy with the result. I'd rather wear a t-shirt from Cafe Press. That aside, the rest of the collection is actually quite good…Read more

Fall 2014 RTW : J.W. Anderson, Belstaff and Richard Nicoll

More fabulous fall collections from London Fashion Week by J.W. Anderson and also Belstaff and Richard Nicoll. Belstaff is quickly becoming a new favourite!     J.W. Anderson There was a lot of focus on the silhouette. While I've chosen to focus on the more wearable pieces here, most were utterly sculptural. There's a lot of experimentation with seams, folds and pleats. That one camel look aside, they all seem like an unfinished thought.   Belstaff Military coats are here to stay. The khaki colour with leather looks amazing with all the zipper…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : John Rocha, Markus Lupfer and Daks

Fall 2014 RTW : John Rocha, Markus Lupfer and Daks

I'm not too excited over these collections but they are pretty unique. Here's John Rocha, Markus Lupfer and Daks from London Fashion Week.   John Rocha It's more sculptural, this collection but we've seen it before. The one dress that intrigues me is the black dress with sheer layers and very 3d floral applique. It's not a novel idea but it's one that keeps this collection more approachable. The knit and leather cutouts together make for an interesting technique but visually, I don't find it very exciting.   Markus Lupfer It's a very…Read more

Fall 2014 RTW : Mark Fast, Duro Olowu and Holly Fulton

Time to look back at fall collections for London Fashion Week! Amazed at Duro Olowu's collection!   Mark Fast It was knitwear through and through! I loved those blue and indigo shades used with black. Can't imagine how all that volume was made with the dresses and long coats look amazing! The crop top and skirt with the scalloped end also looks great. It's a very cozy collection!     Duro Olowu I'm always fangirling over Duro Olowu's collections, they're always so inspiring. The prints and clothes are insane but there's always a…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Marchesa, Anna Sui and Proenza Schouler

Fall 2014 RTW : Marchesa, Anna Sui and Proenza Schouler

I'm in love with these three collections, Marchesa is back on the game this season and Anna Sui and Proenza Schouler collections are stunning as always.   Marchesa I was a horrid collection last spring but it's quickly erased from my memory with this one. It's very elegant, intricate and rich. I love the warm palette and the lace work. That blue dress with the draping is amazing. I think that ochre or mustard yellow colour is really going to be a trend, it looks stunning the way they've done it.   Anna…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : J. Mendel, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs

Fall 2014 RTW : J. Mendel, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs

This is one of the last fall collections from New York Fashion Week. Ralph Lauren was amazing but J. Mendel and Marc Jacobs were great too.   J. Mendel I just love how bright and colourful this collection is. Right off the bat, the coat sets the tone. It's all bold, edgy and very very wearable. I love the teal leather dress and the mesh/weave like gowns, so intricate. The draped gowns look very whimsical and I like how simple they look. Ralph Lauren I really love the colour palette here. The light…Read more

Fall 2014 RTW : Nanette Lepore, Lyn Devon and Reed Krakoff

Floored by the new Lyn Devon collection, but there's also Nanette Lepore and Reed Krakoff! More fall collections from New York Fashion Week!   Nanette Lepore I'm loving the asymmetric hemline and the oxblood prints. There's a lot of comfortable wearable clothes which is what I think the prime customers demand, I wish there was more punch to it though.   Lyn Devon THIS is how you do oversize in a wearable way. It's clean, structured, you aren't drowning in the clothes, I love it! I really like the choice of colours, there's…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Elie Tahari, Pamella Roland and Oscar de la Renta

Fall 2014 RTW : Elie Tahari, Pamella Roland and Oscar de la Renta

A very varied mix of collections from Elie Tahari, Pamella Roland and Oscar de la Renta. They are stunning though! All from New York Fashion Week.   Elie Tahari It seems to capture every kind of dweller in New York. The clothes are very urban and wearable but some detail that makes it unique. I love the leather jackets and the green cape like coat. The tweed and leather mix dress is edgy and modern.     Pamella Roland There's an undeniable geometric aspect to the clothes. The shimmering silver sequin pants with…Read more
