A little late with this one (it’s been a busy few weeks!) but here are my high (and low) lights from the recently concluded London Fashion Week. Follow the link at the end for the best bits from Milan so far….:
#1. Simone Rocha: For using older models. And for nearly changing my mind about velvet. And for a kick-ass collection actually.
#2. Ashley Williams: Could someone pinch me please. Stetsons over hoodies tucked into jogging bottoms finished with a pair of pumps? What the hell.
#3. Burberry: For delivering another “See now buy now” collection. A super wearable combo show of women’s and men’s. Trousers came high-waisted for men (works for me but I imagine it’s not for everyone) and there were white shirts aplenty! I likey very much.
#4. Antonio Berardi: For a bit of “casual glam”. High collars and full skirts stand out.
#5. Christopher Kane. For continuing to try to get us into Crocs! Obviously it didn’t quite take off with the SS16 bejewelled numbers and so he’s back with an AW 17 fur-lined version. I’m sorry but this is still a no from me.

Next stop, Paris!
