WEARING RIGHT NOW



SOME SUN. Hallelujah. London is a different place in when the weather’s nice and Somerset House was looking beautiful. Day 3 was thankfully a little less hectic for me.  I headed down to the BFC Show space to get some street style images whilst the weather was nice, and spent some time just chilling out and enjoying the atmosphere, the sun seems to make everyone in a better mood too!
For the third day I went for matchy-match blue with my Reiss angora knit and Zara skirt with a camel coat over the top, it was still pretty cold even though the sun was shining! How beautiful are my new Shelly’s London shoes? They’re actually surprisingly okay to walk in; they make me a foot taller so I just have to watch my ankles, tackling the cobbles in these bad boys was a challenge to say the least.
I then headed off to south bank for the Toga and Ryan Lo presentations. Toga was held in the Wapping Project just around the corner form the Topshop show space (good move), so thankfully I didn’t have to teeter about too much in those shoes. Walking into the Toga presentation I was greeted by rockabilly sounds from a live band they had performing whilst the models were placed around the installation. The Japanese label featured a variety of textures, shapes and patterns with intricate pleating details and statement coats.
Across the road I headed into the Tate for Ryan Lo, and missing Unique by just a few minutes- which turned out to be even more gutting when I found out public could watch the show from the bridge above the turbine hall. The show space was incredible, I watched Michael Van Der Ham there today and it was insane. After fueling up on champagne and some artichoke soup from the Topshop café it was time for Ryan Lo, the presentation featured some beautifully dressed cowgirls, complete with gold guns and cacti on set. The models donned tweed-style knitwear, metallic pieces and a variety of interesting textured whilst chatting, dancing and shooting us with said gold guns. It was super refreshing to see such a fun and light-hearted from the Newgen designer.
I then grabbed a cab to Freemasons to catch the Yulia Kondranina show, she wa last year’s merit award winner and I’ve always been impressed with her intricately crafted designs so was looking forward to this show. The collection brought forward rough frayed edges on heavy tweed-like coats, juxtaposed with luxe, soft knits, featuring a fairly monochrome palette with pops of colour here and there. Cut outs and scooped backs added a feminine twist to the androgynous pieces.
Last up was Portugal Fashion featuring back-to-back shows form designers Daniela Barros and Joao Melo Costa. Both very different to one another, bar oversized silhouettes, but each I thought had something quite special. Barros featured geometric elements across a cobalt and otherwise muted palette whilst we saw more androgynous pieces from Joao Melo Costa, I loved the crystal embellishments in this collection.

That’s it for day 3, More on days 4 & 5 tomorrow!
