London Fashion Week SS14: Topshop Unique

London Fashion Week SS14: Topshop Unique

I love taking my time when it comes to fashion week reviews – during the mayhem of fashion month, we tend to want to churn these reviews out as quick as possible, which sometimes doesn’t allow you to really enjoy the collections, to notice the details and to give it all some time to sink in. These clothes won’t land in stores until January anyway, so I like posting these closer to the date. Well that, and I’ve been super […]

London Fashion Week SS14: Adidas by Stella McCartney

London Fashion Week SS14: Adidas by Stella McCartney

The Adidas by Stella McCartney SS14 presentation was definitely one of my personal highlights of the previous London Fashion Week. What better way to display workout gear than to get a bunch of incredible and unique athletes doing their thing whilst wearing the kit? Synchronised swimming troupe Aquabatique gave an incredible performance in a very Damien Hirst-esque swimming tank. If the swimsuits stay in place during their energetic routine, I can guarantee they will definitely do when you’re swimming laps […]

London Fashion Week SS14: Sophia Webster

London Fashion Week SS14: Sophia Webster

Tucked away in a secret garden somewhere in Regent’s Park, young accessories designer Sophia Webster‘s “Insect Slumber Party” had every editor ooh-ing and aaah-ing like little girls who’d just walked into Barbie’s wardrobe. As the rain was pouring down outside we all huddled inside the tent, packed to the brim with flowers and colourful butterflies, smiley models having a blast at their slumber party, combined with a soft soundtrack of Katy B singing in the background. Damp feet aside, the […]

Ted Baker AW13

Ted Baker AW13

Not that I’ve not been loving the sunny weather lately, but I must admit that when it comes to fashion, I always prefer winter. Layers! Thick fabrics! Dark colours! So despite the sweltering heat outside, I was pretty excited to catch Ted Baker’s AW13 collection on the catwalk last week. This season had a bit of a travel theme (“take the scenic route”) and featured both the men’s and women’s collections. There was a slight 20′s, 40′s and 60′s vibe, […]

London Fashion Week AW13: Charlie May

London Fashion Week AW13: Charlie May

London Fashion Week seems like ages ago, but I’m still going through my thousands of pictures, digesting, editing and picking my favourite shows. High up on that list was Charlie May‘s show, a fellow blogger and young designer. You may recall I had massive love for Charlie’s SS13 collection, so expectations were high, and I’m glad to tell you she delivered once again. Where SS13 was soft and muted, AW13 was strong and bold, featuring lots of all-white looks (quite a […]

London Fashion Week AW13: Lucas Nascimento

London Fashion Week AW13: Lucas Nascimento

Ever since live streaming of fashion shows  kicked off, I do find myself wondering why we bother going to the shows when you could just watch it at home in your pyjama’s with a cup of tea. There’s queues to deal with, the endless running around, the painful feet and the constant battle to get a good view (which is pretty much always when you’re a shorty like me), resulting in inevitable exhaustion. Anyone – journalist or not – could […]

London Fashion Week AW13: House of Holland

London Fashion Week AW13: House of Holland

I loved House of Holland AW13. Those are words I never thought I’d write or say, but I did and I meant it. See, I ‘ve never been a huge House of Holland fan in the past. Sure, the collections were always amusing and entertaining, but always a little gimmicky and that’s made it hard for me to take Henry 100% serious as a designer. Now you understand why it almost pains me to write that very first sentence. However, […]

London Fashion Week AW13: Eudon Choi

London Fashion Week AW13: Eudon Choi

Eudon Choi is one of those young London designers who seems to remain a little under the radar, but steadily growing his fanbase with every passing season. This became more than obvious when the Portico Room at Somerset House was packed to the rafters for each of his presentations earlier during London Fashion Week. Accompanied by a live folk string quartet, the Korean-born designer sent one of my favourite collections of London Fashion Week AW13 down the catwalk: as the […]

Ted Baker SS13 Show

Ted Baker SS13 Show

Ted Baker held its annual Team Day again last week and I was invited to attend the catwalk show, showcasing the new SS13 collection. I always like Ted’s shows – they’re fun, entertaining and a great way to really bring the collection to life, which a lookbook never quite manages to do. The show mixed womenswear and menswear, and everything from festival outfits to work clothing to evening gowns with a healthy dose of humour and this time, a surprise […]

Chanel Métiers D’Art: Paris > Edimbourg

Anyone wanting to host a fashion show in a remote Scottish roofless ruin of a castle on a freezing December day, should be deemed absolutely insane. But when it’sChanel hosting their annual Métiers d’Art show in the beautiful and historic Linlithgow Palace, you hop on a plane, layer up, put your boots on, have a sip of whiskey, sit back and enjoy every minute of what was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. The Métiers d’Art collections […]

London Fashion Week SS13: Ashish

London Fashion Week SS13: Ashish

The SS13 Ashish girl has stepped straight out of a 90′s teen movie. No, she’s not the heroine of this story, but she’s the geeky girl in the back of the class, the girl with the DIY clothes, the big dorky glasses, and neverending bad hair days. She thinks scrunchies are amazing (they are, actually). She’s also the girl who gets a makeover mid-movie and is crowned Prom Queen at the end of it, because actually, she’s kind of cool […]
