London Fashion Week had it’s final few shows on Tuesday, so what better way to prepare for the Autumn/Winter season for 2015-2016 that with a look back at the most fashionable week in England.
With some of the shows on the first day bringing their A-game, there was a mix of bright whites, gothic blacks, striking reds and the 70s theme that is sure to be front and centre this year.
A favourite of mine was FELDER FELDER, whose AW15-16 collection was slightly similar to the Saint Laurent AW14 collection with the added sprinkle of 70s pieces that made them one of the highlights of LFW. The ‘Rock Glam’ theme was executed perfectly with the mix of leather, lace and fur and colours ranging from orange to silver and black to jade. It was a collection to admire!
Next up is Molly Goddard whose nostalgic collection is a complete contrast to some of the other designs during London Fashion Week. Her presentation was quite different to others that often happened around the week as it showed models wearing her designs sketching life drawings on large easels. Inspired by ‘bohemian art students’, Goddard created intricate dresses in mustard yellows, pale pinks and other colours that make you think of retro fashion in the most modern way. It’s certainly one of my favourites, what about you?
Away from the baby pink tulle from Goddard’s collection comes the rough and ready edginess from Sass and Bide.
Fur, metallics and leather gives Sass and Bide’s AW15-16 collection a rockstar effect that is extremely desirable in the colder months. From leather mini dresses to oversized metallic jackets, Anthony Cuthbertson (the creative director of Sass and Bide) created a collection that screamed rebellion and cool.
Finally, PPQ’s ready-to-wear collection was every goth’s dream, as the premiering of the collection was dark, mysterious and more powerful than ever before.
With subtle white hints here and there that brought a certain softness to PPQ’s AW15-15 collection, the monochrome magic of their collection was certainly one of the best on Day 1 of LFW. From black pieces that were sheer to ruffled basques and massive fur coats – there are certain pieces from PPQ’s black magic that were eye-catching and incredible.
