WEARING RIGHT NOW


Day two was a LONG day. I left the house at 10 and started the day with Holly Fulton at Somerset House. This collection is definitely in my top 5 from LFW, I’m a sucker for prints and her signature deco-style and floral printed pieces were beautifully done across a muted palette of pastel pinks blues and greys, sophisticated fun.
For day two I wore some bright and bold pieces from Bank, this French Connection jumper is seriously my new favourite thing in the world. I teamed with a pvc mini, my mono Zara coat and beautiful new clutch from Rianna Phillips. It's from the 'New Age Native' collection and will be available from her e-boutique soon. I had so many compliments on it and I love the personalised initialling, huge thank you to Rianna for sorting me out. She's also been nominated for the Vogue X Muuse Young Vision Award for accecories, make sure you head over to her site & give her a vote!
In between shows I headed to the Edeline Lee presentation in the East Wing, greeted with a G&T and sounds of a DJ set by the Citizens I was intrigued to see what was in store. The colour themes were mainly black, white and cobalt blue- something I’m loving seeing all over the catwalks this season- and it made for a wonderfully exquisite combination. I’m also super tempted to try it in my eyebrows like the models in this presentation although I’m not sure I’ll pull it off in quite the same way.
Next up was John Rocha who showcased a beautifully romantic collection for AW14. Inspired by the dusk and dark light of Icelandic skies, the collection was a wash of midnight greens and shadowy garnets across velvets, tweeds and leathers and his signature chiffon and organza, balancing a symmetry between the tender and the strong.
For the rest of the day I headed up to fashion scout for *deep breath* Zeynep Katral, Bernard Chandran, Kiev Fashion Days, Belle Suavage and Hema Kaul. You could say I was a little shattered. I was really impressed by some of these designers, particularly Bernard Chandran with his risqué clear panneled leather pieces. I also spotted Suzy Menkes opposite me for a couple for his show and in Kiev Fashion Days- pretty impressed with my photo of the ‘Fashion Circus’ tee with her in the background! I also adored the caged pieces from Paskal during the show, needing that black dress in my life!
To finish I headed off to Sorapol with a couple of course mates, it was being held in Lincoln’s Inn Fields and the Royal College of Surgeons venue was really cool, the wait however was not. The Invite said doors open 7:45, we arrived at 7:15 to get good seats but didn’t actually get let in until 8:30 and the show didn’t start until 9, absolute chaos. Having said that I thought the collection was boldly brilliant. There were some incredibly detailed textures and embellishments featuring crocadile and stingray skins and Preciosa cut crystal that even made a couple of pieces border on couture standard, I swear I’ve never seen a dress sparkle quite like it.
I’ve had a quieter day today -thank god- so stay tuned to hear all about day 3 tomorrow!
