London Fashion Week returns with its Spring/Summer 2015 collection (hurray!), and it is set to be a fashion extravaganza! Here’s a recap on the some of the best shows from day one:
Aksu’s designs transported to a romantic age, with the whimsical frills, sheer laces and the cream, laser cut crotchets that adorned the catwalk. The Bora Akshu traditionally creates gentle, ethereal pieces and he did just this; we were delighted with the palette of whites, baby pinks, lavender and blue. We were shown high neck maxi dresses, with an accompanying purple tulle veil. There were lovely dresses made from white and peach lace, submerged in lace, chiffon or crotchet. So brilliantly designed are these designs, that it was hard to choose a favourite piece, and that lends to the versatile beauty of Bora Aksu’s looks
Catherine Teatum and Rob Jones are known for their androgynous shapes and feminine draped shirt-dresses, and they gave us just that, we saw masculine dresses in black and boxy playsuits in elaborate patterns. We loved the heavy helpings of Swarovski crystals on the more sophisticated pieces to create a glittering glamorous show.
Black was back, and made a fierce impact throughout Eudon Choi’s spring/summer 2015 collection. Even in the cream and whites pieces, we found black was present – in the hemming, the dress straps or the buttoning. The delightful mixes of masculine tailoring with subtle feminine touches were a hit with us, the oversized drop-shouldered coat with a disty floral print will be a sure hit with customers.
Central Saint Martins graduates Delaney and Kim Trager made their London Fashion Week debut on Friday, they bought bright dashes of colour – red, blue and orange predominated, and punctuated pieces with geometric prints and pleats. There’s no doubt that we’ll be seeing this fashion duo again.
