Their Autumn Winter 2013 collection is only strengthening their reputation, as stiffer and more rigid fabrics created a stronger, edgier look.

My LFW Pick: Tom Ford AW 2013

Almost 10 years after Tom Ford’s last proper and public fashion show, his AW 2013 last night did not disappoint. It was a very glamourous affair of course, as everyone would expect from Ford; but it also had a lot fun elements to it. The opulence of the looks were almost overwhelming with the textures, … Continue reading

My LFW Pick: Burberry Prorsum AW 2013

Trench coats, trench coats, trench coats… oh, how lovely they were.

Little strips of leather with eyelets adorned skirts, jackets and several … Continue reading

My LFW Pick: Issa AW 2013

If I take the hint from Issa’s AW 2013 show, the 70s will be everywhere in a few months. Cara Delevingne opened the show in an eye-catching, oversize feathered fedora, and from there, the 70s feeling only intensified. A new interpretation of 70s boho-chic came in different forms and shapes with printed maxis layered over brown … Continue reading

Canadian-born designer Erdem has managed to put together a very eery and striking show yesterday in London, citing the work of feminist sci-fi writer and schoolteacher Zenna Henderson as a strong influence for his spring collection. He imagined reptilian creatures and aliens descending from space and attempting to look and dress like humans in order to … Continue reading

Focus… London Fashion Week: Giles SS 2013

For his SS 2013 collection, Giles Deacon has been playing with the theme of shattered glass, which was reinterpreted in several different ways – from fabric quilting and monochrome graphics to more realistic colourful prints; laser-cut leather dresses; and even into thousands of shimmering crystals which encrusted the chiffon and tulle gowns. Even the perspex … Continue reading

One word: metallics. Christopher Bailey reinvented the Burberry trench for Spring with high shine satin basque in jewel and citrus shades, setting the tone for this glimmering and brash presentation.
