London Fashion Week

In the past, I felt like London was always seen as the 'weak' Fashion Week, and maybe it's just my 'hometown' pride speaking but I think LFW kicks ass.

Erdem- typical digi-prints that the label does so well and a little more toned down colours to suit the autumn mood.
Vivienne Westwood Red Label- the fact that I mentioned VW must be a sign that London is growing on me, as Madame Westwood is THE SHIT here and I didn't really care too much for her designs before (for her personality though, anyone crazy enough to go knickerless to see the queen, hats off to you!)
Roksanda Ilincic- really feminine beautiful stuff that could fit into a 1940s socialite's closet.
Antonio Berardi-graphic sexy stuff and I am really starting to kinda like this velvet stuff all over the runways.

Christopher Kane- Heidi meets bad Catholic schoolgirl. But how about more than just dresses Mr. K? Although those shoes are awesome...

Richard Nicoll- I would stuff every piece from this collection in my closet, which kinda scares me because I feel like a have a bit of an old taste for my age and I mean I can dress older when I'm older, so I kinda feel this is more the time to let my inner freak flag fly. What a fashion crisis mmmhh...
Matthew Williamson- What does Mr. Caftan/hippie dress create for the winter? Cute little party dresses. Duh.
Louise Goldin- architectural shaped awesomeness
Julien Macdonald- a D- for work-appropriateness (nipple action doesn't really cut it for the workplace, unless you are working in those kinda places), but a B+ for prettiness
Mary Katrantzou- love love this collection, amazing prints, clashing colours and it still works.
Marios Schwab- nice added in deets and silhouettes

Meadham Kirchhoff- this somehow struck my "9-year old girl playing dress up" nerve and it feels so 'underground' somehow (I know stupid/cliche description for something but I hope someone out there gets me weird ticking mind).
Basso & Brooke- digital prints galore, but that's about it (still good though, but with the background print it makes me feel epileptic).

  3. Charlie,
    danke für einen weiteren treuen Besuch :)

    I know you didn't mean it personally, I also find it a bit crazy how it's just runway shows, fashion, clothes, fashion for weeks on end and can understand how one gets kinda sick of it, I guess for some reason I can't help myself with posting it. thank you for the sweet compliments hun' and i adore your blog as well.
