In true British style, on day four of London Fashion Week it absolutely bucketed down. Poor Gemma and I shot our looks in the wet - hence the not so neat hear and not so amused pout on my face. Fortunately Monday's shows were a little closer to home and in some really cool venues, starting off at the National History Museum for Antonio Berardi and then making a rather sodden journey through the Kensington Gardens for Barbara Casasola. As lovely as these locations are, finding your way to the middle of one of the royal parks either leave you with a drenched outfit or spending a small fortune on surging Ubers when the weather's bad. However, Casasola turned out to be my favourite show of LFW, so I suppose the wet hair was kinda worth it. See my reviews and shop my look below.

Antionio Berardi
Berardi moved onto more relaxed silhouettes this season, but that's not to say there wasn't plenty of glamour. Fluid, feminine pieces made their way down the catwalk, adorned with graphic prints and heavy embellishments - often accompanied by floating trains of fabric. The crystal harness and relaxed tailored dress and jacket above was one of my favourite looks, echoing the undone vibe that was present throughout the entire collection, again adding an air of softness to the designer's signature tailoring.

Barbara Casasola
I'm rarely so impressed by a designer the first time I see their show but as I mentioned above, Barbara Casasola's SS16 collection was my absolute favourite from the London shows. Minimal and slick with a focus on fit and fine fabrics, the designer made you want to slip into each and every one of the garments that made their way down the catwalk. From streamlined dresses to heavy knitwear the collection remained cohesive from start to finish thanks to the limited earthy colour pallette of lily whites, blacks, burnt reds and grass greens. The cut out details, more subtle on some garments than than others, we saw through through exposed midriffs with dropped hems, sliced out waist detials and cold shoulders. A focus on what lies beneath and a definite sense of allure throughout the collection. Accessorising was also on point with simple footwear and bags with eye catching gold neckwear. It's a big yes from me and hats off to the Brazilian designer, who's actually the youngest to show at LFW yet.
