1. Anais Gallagher (yup, the 13 year old daughter of Noel & Meg) owning FROW at the Moschino Cheap & Chic show sporting a satin dog-print aqua pant suit with white heart-shaped shades and pretty blue heels. She's definitely trending, and one to watch!
3. Eeep poodle on the catwalk! As is traditional, Max the dog was again decked to the nines in Mulberry's latest prints alongside models wearing the human equivalent looking just the part (Max, not the model though they seem to be doing alright too). It's always nice to see our furry little friend enjoying some matchy-matchy action. LOVE.
4. Vivienne Westwood commenting that the Duchess of Cambridge should re-wear some of her nice dresses. Interesting, and in my opinion an admirable stance given fashion in this day and age has gained a relatively more throw-away attitude. Or as my housemate nicely summed up "funny she said that given they are all there to try and sell more clothes". To me, the best designer pieces should always be long lasting, timeless and versatile, i.e. re-wearable. Long live recycling, up-cycling and Dame Westwood's determination to continue to challenge.
5. Last but not least, the actual shows. So many to choose from but below are probably my top three shows / outfits I loved from London Fashion Week 2013 A/W Collections (plus a list of my "rest of" favourites). Though to be honest, I would look at all the pictures from the full shows just because of the sheer fact that I couldn't even pick one favourite look!
|for its... feminine metallics, tailored fun & romantic statement accessories|
|for its... spectacular animal prints, statement colours & vibrant tribal feel|
|Preen by Thornton Bregazzi|
|for its... clear vision, clean lines & bold pops of red and blue|
"rest of" favourites
i. Louise Gray; metallic rainbow, quirky combinations & a feminine rockstar vibe
ii. ALICE by Temperley; super feminine, flattering & sleek lines
iii. Duro Allow; bright floral prints, dress coats & cosy furs
iv. Sass & Bide; simple but effective patterns, monochrome with a pop of yellow & classic tailoring
v. Matthew Williamson; cosmic vibe, flower power prints & simply shiny shiny
