Phew! This was an almighty day packed with prints, polka dots and vodka shots. Here are our highlights (we apologize for our slightly dodgy camera quality):
Peter Pilotto and design partner Christopher Des Vos aimed for slightly tougher aesthetic, and they didn’t disappoint. We saw a palette of anarchistic black and white, deep reds, violent yellows and stormy blues which were used for strict tailoring as well as more fluid pieces and knitwear. This show was a brilliant way for the Feathers team to start the day…

Next up was some fun at the BFC via David Koma and Holly Fulton:
we loved the polka-dot theme running throughout the show..
Next up was Holly Fulton who gave us a slightly more grown-up collection but was still full of enough frivolity to brighten up a serious day of shows…
We particularly loved her shorter embellished party dresses:
We then zipped off to see a slightly more grown-up Pringle Of Scotland. Very British colours were mixed in hues of rich autumnal reds and oranges, petrol blues and nude beige. We saw luxurious vintage knit jacquards reworked in opposing scales particularly successful via over-sized capes and wrap skirts with leather buckle details. (images via Dazed Digital)
The Christopher Kane show bought back all sorts of childhood memories via lava lamp liquid detail dresses and “soda pop” sequins:
Michael Van Der Ham was up next spinning the Autumn/Winter colour wheel in the direction facing bright via crushed velvet dresses and lurex:
Last show of the day was Mark Fast. Ending with a bang is an understatement. The designer played with the idea that “things are not what they seem to be, they are mysterious and disguised. I used the energy of the movement of a wolf’s vicious anger to be projected into the cuts of the knitted pieces.”
And to end a crazy day on an even higher fashion note, the Feathers team headed over to the official LFW designers party for some fun and frolicks.
More to come for LFW Day 5!
