Paul Smith’s Best Collection for Aeons – AW’14

February 16, 2014

You feel it in your guts when it’s a good show. You know it is when you find it hard to edit the catwalk images that you’re choosing to highlight your piece. Perhaps it’s my age? Or simply because all the kiddiewinks fashion designers jumping up and down, grasping for attention doesn’t either ring true […]

Holly Fulton Lacks Her Usual Joie de Vivre.

February 16, 2014

Perhaps it was because her last season show nailed it to the wall as well as being a huge and expansive collection in terms of ideas and influence, but this season Holly Fulton seemed to revert to old ground. And resultantly, the impact was less wow’worthy. Yes, sure, there were tons of Fulton’s trademark deco […]

Marios Schwab Proves It’s Not Always Bangs & Whistles that Make Real Waves

February 16, 2014

Having just seen the dull-as-ditchwater show previously (the fashion adept will work out who this was), it was joy, sweet joy, to be transported to the sort of low key, modernist come feminine without flounce aesthetic of Marios Schwab. Schwab is one of those designers you would really love to wear if you weren’t the […]

John Rocha’s Cool Icelandic Vision for AW’14

February 16, 2014

There’s so much hype around the hipper, newer designers during LFW that it often loses sight of the old masters who do it well, consistently and stunningly. John Rocha is one such man. A man who quietly and confidently goes about his business of producing extraordinarily beautiful swathes of ethereal yet gutsy femininity and charm […]

Amanda Wakeley’s Kinky Mayfair Geisha for A/W’14

February 15, 2014

Hell didn’t quite freeze over for London Fashion Week A/W’14 but it was surely the next best/worst thing. Standing outside the slick new Amanda Wakeley store in Albermarle street in the sleeting, icy cold, February rain and gale force winds, while wondering why we weren’t been allowed in (as the celebs mingled and chatted in […]

Penhaligons release Tralala. Inspired by the World of Meadham Kirchhoff

January 23, 2014

I have a love-hate relationship with Meadham Kirchhoff. Much of the time, love the collections: the inspiration, the frou-frou, the playfulness and the masterfully distressed contradictions and cut. But hate, no, loathe, the ‘trying to prise a ticket from the PRs hands to get into the show’ routine that’s the usual LFW catwalk seasonal stand-off. […]

Zeynep Tosun’s Modernist Carefree Spirit of the 1920s for S/S’14

October 18, 2013

Zeynep Tosun reassessed the sleek and carefree spirit of the 1920s in her S/S’14 collection but in an assuredly modernist manner. Drop-waists, elongated V-necks and wide-legged trousers cut from luxuriant silk and chiffon recalled the essential age when fashion entered modernity: the death of hourglass corseting and birth of flat masculinised femininity. Light pink, champagne, […]

Todd Lynn–The Latest Designer at Debenhams

October 16, 2013

Debenhams. One of the trustworthy, go-to dept stores on the high street has (along with Topshop) been the source of affordable designer name clothing for the great British public. The flipside bonus to this is that funding designers’ secondary high-street ranges means an injection of cash to the designers as well as widening the appeal […]

Antipodium’s S/S’14 Traces the Legacy of Modern Retail

October 10, 2013

The playful S/S’14 presentation of Antipodium creative director, Geoffrey Finch, debuted in an intimate space fitted with a black and white tiled runway. The basement hall in Somerset House resembled what one might imagine an A.A. meeting in Chelsea to look like – dimly lit with anonymously well-dressed figures emerging from the shadows to reveal […]
