This season the shows I’ve had the opportunity to see during London Fashion Week were truly amazing! It always inspires me to see so many different styles throughout the week, as there are so many I love and want to combine in my own way! Today I’m taking you through the shows and presentations I’ve seen on Day 3 of London Fashion Week. I hope you enjoy them, and I would love to know which are your favorites!
YII: A youthful collection titled ‘We Never Grow’, which takes inspiration from childhood imaginations. This season during London Fashion Week YII showcased his very first Womenswear line – all about the courage to dream. The designer beautifully executed his theme through the use of playful and amusing textures, details and prints, where the shapes of the garments were quite oversized, boxy and loose, giving it an almost androgynous and minimal feel. Certainly a collection I really enjoyed seeing on the runway, it was energetic and artistic!
VINTI ANDREWS: The SS16 collection from Vinti Andrews was romantic and youthful, representing the modern ’skater girl’ and taking inspiration from the 60s and 70s through denim, organza and wools to evoke a laidback attitude. Old-fashioned prints were re-worked, and the use of sheer materials really brought the collection to life!
MIUNIKU: Miuniku’s presentation was a mix of the elegant and sophisticated woman, and a more contemporary sporty look, with the collection being titled ‘Before the Digital Age’. With the use of simple, boxy silhouettes, asymmetric details, and bold colors, the designer brought in ideas of futuristic fashion combined with styles of the present.
GEORGIA HARDINGE: A collection that had me head over heels for each and every garment that walked in the room, Georgia Hardinge showcased femininity and class with a sculptural aesthetic. Inspired by the elements of Zodiac symbols, Hardinge used pleating, laser cuts and old Japanese stencilling techniques to create beautifully structured pieces that show true craftsmanship.
DANIELLE ROMERIL: My final presentation of the day was Danielle Romeril, who executed the theme of a ‘Paradise Lost’ with re-appropriated garments, unexpected textures and mismatched patterns. The verdant color palette of pale pink, neutrals and shades of green referenced African farmers, and the undone shapes of the garments illustrated both beauty and a raw aesthetic.
I hope you enjoyed this recap of the shows I’ve seen on Day 3, and stay tuned for the rest of my London Fashion Week posts coming soon!
