London Fashion Week AW13 is now over and I haven’t been able to show the lots I’ve got yet. My first day last Friday was crazy, but fun! I had 10 shows on the schedule and I knew that comfortable shoes were a MUST, and indeed what a wise decision it was to wear this boyish leopard shoes that I love so much. Yes, I love leopard print, and it keeps coming back again and again, or didn’t you see the Burberry show? I put this outfit together very last minute trying to keep it black and white, added the fur vest and collar to keep warm and the final touch was the prune porter hat. The Modalu Pippa bag was my saviour, I could fit it all in it and kept it safe with its compartment’s zippers. It worked perfect for the weather and hectic day.

While living the current season I was looking back at the fashion shows from September, where we previewed the then upcoming Autumn/Winter 2012 collections. I still get hypnotised by Sophie Hulme’s London Fashion Week’s debut with such a wearable yet unique collection of high quality pieces of chic, boyish, tough feminism, cool and young designs, and that very special touch of dinosaur toys in charms, belts, lace and embroided jumpers. See the full post on the show here and my video of her, where she says the collection was inlfuenced by her love for menswear and why dinosaurs. Now, you can buy AW12 here, here and here.
An outstanding mix of tough tailoring with the hotness of fur and leather embraced the catwalk of Todd Lynn’s show at London Fashion Week yesterday. Unique blazers, sharp geometric shapes, V cuts, leather gloves combined with browns, blacks and greys colours showcased his Fall 2012 collection called “Kitsch”.
Inspired in The Renaissance, Mayan mysticism and the Brothers Grimm, the Canadian designer brings his classic elegance and clean tailoring to vigorous ladies that have a chic spirit and powerful sense.
I’m not a big fan of workwear, and Lynn’s collections are not surprisingly different. But although he followed his -expected- classic line of molding silhouettes, the show was fabulous and the collection was stunning, as he achieved his ‘corrupted elegance’. I absolutely loved that fur coat, the fur vest crossed at the back, and the so much leather that gives a rock and roll touch to so much elegance. I would simply resume Lynn’s new collection in three words: strong, elegant and aristocratic.
For the first time I have brought something big for boys, and what a better post than an interview with London-based men’s designer Martine Rose. This top designer has done plenty collaborations, have designed for Topman and have hit London Fashion Weeks and catwalks with her unique collections.
She reveals her personality at her showroom and says all about her current Autumn/Winter 11 collection of layers and her Californian Spring/Summer 12. Martine even tells us that her dad dares to wear her designs. What a privilege! Enjoy…
