London Fashion Week: Review

Now, Fashion Weeks are taking place in Europe and for starters it's London, followed by Milan and Paris.


This season, Mulberry's collection was inspired by the jungle. Leopard and panther prints were everywhere. The saturated color, intense animal prints, gold jewelery, and amazing camel wool coats made a successful show. Wait, that's not all, this season dogs and their owners will get the chance to be warm and cozy with one of those chic sweaters. What do you think? Are dogs in now?

Antoni Berardi's inspiration was clearly towards the Saint Laurent 70s. Some sheer tops, fur coats, little black dresses were kind of a cliché. However, the studded jacket, red velvet dress, and the black and white geometrical shapes of the dresses gave it a new twist.


Matthew Williamson is best known for making bright colorful dresses and garments. However, sometimes he likes to experiment other types of audience and makes elegant sophisticated clothes. In this case he did both. The prints of the silk colorful one-shoulder minidress were breathtaking. Don't you think s

 
"We don't want to get categorized as a cocktail-print designers, so we're trying tailoring and more daywear" said Peter Pilotto. This collection, with a  brownish-orangey palette from the 70s, still kept the Peter Pilotto "flavor" which was added with silver leather straps to the garmetns and some fabulous dresses with very interesting prints.

Last but not least, Burberry Prorsum, one of the most anticipated shows at London Fashion Week. Christopher Bailey's new collection was transmitted live in 3-D from London to a couple of other cities around the world such as Paris, New York, Tokyo, Dubai, and Los Angeles. What do you think of this new amazing technology? (If you want to know more click here.)
For now let's forget about technology because this collection is a lot more than just that. The leather giant.collared overcoats and the pair of amazing up to the thigh boots were impressive. Backstage, after the show, Christopher Bailey said " I was thinking of uniforms and cadet girls-but it all started when I looked at an aviator jacket in the archive. Then, as I started designing into it, I realized it could be as versatile as the trench-strong and sexy. masculine and feminine."

  10. Christopher Bailey is definitely one of the few who has mastered the combination of design and business acumen with the life transmission (not to mention the pre-order idea). Very clever to embrace a digital age, when so many other designers are still clinging to traditional media.
