London Fashion Week has come to a close, and without fail it has produced some amazing collections from our British based designers. So with this in mind we have included some of our favourite shows that we went to see in the last few days…..
Roksanda Ilincic was fresh and bold in an array of citrus colours. It made a strong statement with colour blocking throughout in various stripes, geometric prints and had a very linear aesthetic. She also played with proportions, creating oversized jackets with rounded shoulders against nipped in waists on A -Line skirts and straight leg cigarette pants.
Mary Katrantzou stayed true to the brand with a mix and match of prints, based on shoes and combined with florals. The deep colour palette of aqua, turquoise, burgundy and fuchsia print was displayed on voluminous baby doll dresses, leggings and waistcoats, with amazing detailing of girly ruffles and intricate embellishment.Peter Pilotto based their collection on L.A.-based artist Ken Price, who produces ceramics. Price plays with a sense of depth by using various dappled glazes. In doing so the duo have created a combination of vibrate textured prints and colour fusions for a truly stimulating collection. Sharp lines and panelling form a deeper perspective and by incorporating hoop skirt infrastructures plays with the proportions.J. W Anderson continues his theme from last season with similar detailing of ties, bows, and layered panels but takes it one step further with transparent PVC, fringing and embossed leathers to develop his look further. Keeping the colour palette simple with monochrome, and occasionally throwing in a colour to freshen the collection for SS14.
