London Fashion Week A/W 2010...favourites so far.

MARY KATRANTZOU

As always Mary presented an interesting collection full of colour and fine detail. It was really nice to see some colour finally walking down the catwalk as many of designers have stuck to earthy colours and nudes for their collections. To prove herself as a credible designer Mary made sure that she used very different prints on her designs and brought something different to the proceedings with the ruffled fabrics seen on the last dresses.

TOPSHOP UNIQUE

The whimsical nature of Unique was apparent by just looking at the leaves scattered across the catwalk; so that the models looked like they were talking a stroll out on a cold autumn day. The belted jackets are a perfect statement piece for autumn. I love some of the longer lengths shown at Unique also; related to my quest for the perfect longer length skirts and dresses! My favourite has to be the all white and cream look above; it just has a dream like quality to it.


VIVENNE WESTWOOD

As always Vivienne put on a wonderful show; one model walked down the catwalk with a butchers apron on holding a knife. Only at Westwood! The footwear was awesome as always. However I do hope the 13 year old daddys girls will stay away from Westwood footwear when they hit the shops. I am sick of seeing these little girls in £300 boots; the pirate boots are EVERYWHERE in Leeds. The first black jacket is pretty toned down but I have to say she pulls off simple pieces as well as the extravagant!

LOUISE GOLDIN

The structured silhouettes seen at Louise Goldin were amazing! The sparkly leggings that ran into sparkly boots were awesome. There was also a rather fierce sequin and black look which was definitely my favourite of the the whole collection. Louise is a designer that creates clothing for the powerful woman; just look at her shoes for Topshop. You have to have attitude to wear these clothes!

  2. Everyone is going on about the topshop unique collection, I really need to have a closer look. The Vivienne Westwood combination of black skirt and long blue shirt is inspirational and Louise Goldin always exciting!

  8. I'm actually feeling quite underwhelmed by New York/London fashion week, although I do much prefer the London stuff. I really love those Topshop unique socks or tights or whatever they are.
