London Fashion Street: Edeline Lee AW16Friday, 26 February 2016
Edeline Lee is a constant in my fashion week schedule. I always make sure I catch her presentation, I'm always impressed by the thought that goes behind the setting as well as the clothes.
In past seasons I've been able to view the collection at my leisure, especially when it had been separated into different rooms and corridors. One season I chatted to Lee herself, she talked us through the collection. This season was incredibly different.
As we came into the courtyard at The Vinyl Factory we were greeted by an extremely long line eager to see the presentation. Once inside we fought our way to the front to get a good look at the models. I couldn't believe how busy it was, but I was also happy to see so many Lee fans. I managed to snap some great shots of the clothes, despite the crowds.
The models themselves were set in the a backdrop of shredded paper (I'm sure to be recycled) and a whimsical chequerboard floor.
The thing I always love about Lee's collections are their wear-ability. Often you will find so many clothes have beautiful clothes but they aren't made for the average woman.
A favourite piece of mine was the oversized cocoon coat with black piping. I can imagine wearing this with a straight black trouser and polo neck. In fact, can I have this now?
Also I am totally feeling the dress over trousers vibe - the floral look here was one of my favourites and I think I'm going to re-create this as soon as possible.
Edeline Lee manages to do minimal while still retaining colour and prints in her collections. She will continue to be a favourite of mine for seasons to come, I already can't wait to see what's in store for SS17.
