London Town

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

As we tick further into fall, so goes another fashion week. Now that the glitz and glam will be moving on to Paris lets see what the dust has settled, before England's rain washes back to a clean slate. *all photos compliments of style.com*

Jasmine di Milo had some pieces too avant garde for my pret-a-porte taste but these two left me smitten. I love the 40s high-waisted shorts with a billowing top. Its so breezy and perfect for Spring. Give any dress pockets and I am hooked, and this perfect night out ensemble screams for attention.

Ledija e Dijan, contestant in Fashion Fringe (a form of Project Runway), had very inspiring pieces for the season. I of course love the bold colors, but I also love the drapey quality they each possess, its a nice signature if you ask me.
New London staple, Christopher Kane, had an interesting collection, not all my style but fun to work with. Most of his pieces for Spring consisted of this double split skirt. This one I liked more than the others because it was a little less Dorothy, a little more classic with the sheer floral print. I still like the one slit better, the double split, when walking, makes that flap feel a little like a loin cloth.
Graeme Black was inspired by British Colonial Africa, and I love the result. Colorful, draped, yet structured and proper, it'll be a great maxi dress for Spring.

Erdem really impressed me, I loved the lace overlays, and classic elegance. These two dresses are so older Hollywood, and SO on my wish list!

And of course you cannot speak of London fashion without discussion London fashion icon, Vivienne Westwood. The Vivienne Westwood Red Label surprised me, because I like a lot of the pieces. Usually, I love the Westwood flavor but can't quite pull it off, this Spring her pieces are much more toned down. I love the high-waisted 40s pants and the billowing top, it is my favorite era, and I'm so glad to see it getting some play on the runways lately!
