A few looks from each.

Paul Smith

“No theme; just a few classic English looks.”

Paul Smith Women Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Paul Smith Women Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Paul Smith Women Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Skye Stracke. Love the coat and the socks and the gloves.

Paul Smith Women Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Paul Smith Women Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

It seemed to me that the London designers, in general, were more prone to play around with colours than at NYFW…

Paul Smith Women Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Love how this olive drab ensemble is punctuated by the little bit of hot pink on the socks. Great shoes too.

Paul Smith Women Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

A classic English floral dress. Love the little details on the sleeves.

Paul Smith Women Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Nice dress shape – not one we’ve seen frequenting the runways this season, with those straps. And hellooo, hot pink gloves!

Erdem

…went with more exotic and semi-ethnic prints; flowy dresses were the main focus.

Erdem Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Very sculpted, both the skirt & shoulders. Matching shoes.

Erdem Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Alek Alexeyeva. Absolutely love the neckline on this one, and the black overlay on the red.

Erdem Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

More black lace on red.

Erdem Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear
Leaning towards ethnic.

Erdem Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Love the colour and totally love the neck – ruffles and a huge flower! Shoes too.

Erdem Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Skirt & neck… thing.

Erdem Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Print! Pouffy neck and voluminous sleeves! And we see the stovepipe pant that’s been extremely popular this season. (I’ll do a post on big trends in… idk. An hour?)

Erdem Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Love the cut and the semicircles on the torso… and the sleeves! And the print! Sort of Chinese looking.

No worries, another post to quickly follow.

Ciao!

NOTE: due to the huge amounts of stuff to be covered, I’ll be cutting back [aka, making them not so horrendously long] on my posts. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to keep up with LFW.

Giles Deacon

He said he was trying to get back to what had originally got him interested in fashion; the simple fun of creating, playing with fabrics and textures and prints, and coming up with something completely one’s own.

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Sophie Srej. Beige dress with fur arms – definitely a unique look (although it gave me flashbacks to Balenciaga Pre-Fall 09…)

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Structurally sound and metallic olive.

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Ha ha, this made me think of the Tin Man. The light gives it really interesting patterns. (And gotta love the thigh-high silver metallic boots).

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

More patterned silver; slouchy with a huge necklace and one mother of a HAT.

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Jourdan Dunn. Layers of grey and white over a bejewelled skirt.

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Love the colours & print, but the shape looks a little wide.

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

You can definitely see the “fun” in this one.

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Great little dress & shoes. I love about this collection: it’s not all simple b&w.

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Kinga Rajzak. Love this, absolutely adore this. The hugely oversize fur, the velvet-looking boots (or are those pants? Ha ha, I should probably get that figured out.) And the HAT.

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Whoa.

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Sort of 40’s & 50’s Hollywood glamour.

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

AHH. Love, love, LOVE!

Giles Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Closing the show was Yulia Kharlaponova, wearing this gorgeous dark grey & silver tulle and… other stuff gown with a skirt that vaguely resembles a lampshade with nails sticking out of it.

House of Holland

Definitely a standout collection, what with its multi-hued & banded pants and jackets and everything in between. Very refreshing and very, very London. Also very Agyness.

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Ayness Deyn. You know what? Most of these are totally capable of speaking for themselves, so I’ll limit my input. Enjoy!

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Elsa Sylvan

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Have to say something. Love the banded tights & this coat is HEAVEN.

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Edythe Hughes. Eep! Shoes and muff! :)  :)

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Skye Stracke.

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Umm……. (ICK)

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear
Much better.

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Hat!

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

So fun. Love the shoes.

House of Holland Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Agyness and Henry Holland.

I WANT THOSE SHOES.

Ahem. Now that my girlish squealing has subsided, let’s move on to Ossie Clark

Another collection with refreshing brights. More 70’s than 80’s, which was also refreshing.

Ossie Clark Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Katrin Thormann. Love the shoes and orange, especially in all the different hues… we didn’t see too much orange elsewhere.

Ossie Clark Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Again, love the colour – the sleeves are a bit dated, I think; such an exagerrated bell sleeve is less in now than just voluminous. But hey, it’s still gorgeous!

Ossie Clark Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Sort of a classic look.

Ossie Clark Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Tao. Love the layers, the sheer, and the sheen. And the bag. (!)

Ossie Clark Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Dramatic, flowy, vintagey. Love the tie at the top, the ruffles at the hem, and the colour.

Ossie Clark Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Mmm, maroon! And love the ruffley bag.

Ossie Clark Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Ah, love love love. The sheer top under the perfect, PERFECT blazer… all with those loose trousers. Agh. I’m salivating over here (haha, TMI sorry).

There you have it! (I’m not nearly done… see all my other posts for more LFW updates… streeet style, backstage, and on the runway!)

While she intended her collection to be influenced by birds of many feathers, it came off as a serious 80’s vibe, the vibe of a crazily independent woman. Black & grey were dominant, splashed with bits of bright rooster red here and there.

Danielle Scutt Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Flo Gennaro. While most see flames or some artistic wing, Danielle says she based this off a cockerel’s ruffle thing. (Not her words, exactly.) It has great shape, and the gloves make it a little edgier.

Danielle Scutt Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Amazing coat: full, a deep shade of black, lots of shape, volume, and movement… and look at the collar. Again, based off of the feathered neck of a bird. (The red lining gives it an almost sinister air; it looks as though at any moment, she could whip it open to reveal a blood-red interior and screech “I vant to suck your blood!” (Haha, yay for cheesy cliches!)(Also, sorry for the lack of accents on the French… quite frankly, I’m too lazy to go in and find them.)

Danielle Scutt Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Great skirt, love the side pockets. The opera gloves add a definite element of drama (more than this outfit already has). And is it just me, or are a lot of the models’ ears pointy?

Danielle Scutt Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

The layers add more depth to an already busy-printed dress; since it’s a simple bandage dress, it works.

Danielle Scutt Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Looser style; the sleeves and neck reflect her original influence of birds, I think. That and the dress has a texture comparable to that of feathers (or looks like it does, at any rate).

Danielle Scutt Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

More “plumage” with the ruffled neck and hem.

Danielle Scutt Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Hawklike? Nah. More like Mrs. Devil. (In an incredibly cool, stylish way).

Danielle Scutt Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Definitely pheasant-based.

Danielle Scutt Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Ever seen a silver peacock?

Danielle Scutt Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

A pheasant bodysuit. Cool… but I’d only wear it under some layers.

So, collection: eccentrically bird-based, 80’s-accidentally-themed, and pretty damn cool in my opinion. You?

Luella consisted of loads of cute, unique, wearable pieces – a key factor when designing in these times, I think. An added feature: not all black and white!

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Just funky enough to really stand out (not to mention the hair!), but subdued enough for streetwear. Boots – though not thigh-highs. I like boots that come just under the knee and aren’t skintight; a looser look.

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Great slim pant & shoes… and HAIR!

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Myf Shepard. Great little dress. Each piece in this collection has its own unique feel, vibe, to it, yet they are all cohesive and blend perfectly.

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Now that‘s a suit! Love the skirt – it’s sort of little-kid funky, with the ruffle and obvious pockets. Chic little gloves too – I’ve yet to find the perfect pair.

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Elsa Sylvan. I actually got my hair to look like that once – it was so cool and fun to play with, I swear I was in front of the mirror for two hours… around 2 a.m.  :D

Anyway, cute dress – we see some of this season’s new black (sorry for the cliche), but paired with some green boots that offset the somber mood.Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Yulia Kharlaponova. Love the metallic dark foresty green skirt, and the little cutouts on the jacket are a nice, subtley sexy touch. A. Wang-esque hat (although really, just a glorified basic slouchy beanie). And look at the bag – sort of a done-up messenger bag/briefcase combo. Interesting. (Pour moi, s’il-vous plait?)

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Daul Kim. See what I mean? This has sort of a military feel to it – not a trend this season – and yet it fits right in with the surrounding looks. Love the gloves – dramatic opera-length gloves, but a little subdued on grey rather than black leather. More casual. [You really need more than just a basic black leather pair - although that sounds very consumeristic of me - but I've found that the more options you have, the better you can create a really cohesive outfit].

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Metallic stripes on a black, semi-sheer dress with slightly puffed shoulders; full of trend, but it seems different from all the other puff-sleeves, black, sheer dresses out there. Maybe it’s the huge black fur hat or the black boots?

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Chanel Iman. Here we see more of that military touch, in the hat and the buttons on the top.

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Amanda Laine. When you first look at this, you see (other than the hair) the belt and the collar; look at the shoes (understated) and the pants (great shape & colour). It all blends.

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

As we’ve seen in a few other lines, a slightly 40’s-influenced look – the pale blue top, the hair, and the lower waist (I’m hesitant to use “drop waist” because it doesn’t seem to fit quite right with this… it’s not a dress with an identifiable waist, it’s just a long sweater. But yeah.)

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Imogen Morris-Clarke. Such a London-cool look. Love the colour of the dress, and it’s got a nice shape to it as well (slightly resembling Marc’s a few seasons back). Nice metallic tights & shoes.

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Classic trench, slightly new approach to shape: very straight and loose. We haven’t seen that too much lately… I like it. Gold bag, too!

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Portia Freeman. Not sure what the bag is (an animal? A fur-coated lunchbox?), but I love, love, LOVE the coat: shiny red ombre leather. AHHHH. (That’s a good AHHHH)

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Heidi Rock. A preppy look with navy & red & gold buttons; love the brown shoes too. Very classic.

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Karlie Kloss. Love the hat and jumper right off the bat – for some reason I’m not sure about the metallic gold tights with this one. The bag, no questions. Shoes, no doubt. Hat = hat porn. (Looooove. I’ve become a major hat person recently… I think it’s because you can so easily change the tone of an outfit with the swap of a hat.)

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Sara Blomqvist. [How on earth do you pronounce that??] Loving the flame-style hair again, plus the very detailed looks on the skirt & jacket. Nice clutch & gold wristlet gloves. (I love the short look of those cutoff/wristlet gloves – it gives them a sexy look, in a weird way. Like, “Oooh, look! I’m showing off my wrists!” Sort of like ankles in the old days.)

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Sort of a space-age look; we see the ever-trendy beige and ruffles.

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Pixie Geldorf on the runway. Not a fan of this dress, actually – it adds a lot of width.

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Myf again. (Love those pigtail braids, by the way!) The subtle (relatively speaking…) touches on this look – the slightly poking-out pockets and the little points on the shoulders – make this pop (the print helps too).

Luella Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Luella Bartley herself! I love that skirt – sort of a mix of fringed lampshade (think A Christmas Story) and some sort of Chinese silk.

As always, Luella’s created a winner with her cute & chic, yet highly functional & realistic clothes.

Look du jour (from JAK&JIL):

Tiffany Hui. Love that crazy sweater (handknit) and the boots (Al McQ). Bag is Givenchy.

Ciao!

Tons of architectural designs at LFW so far, that’s very promising.

Also, if you haven’t noticed, all these pictures are from Fashion156… great site for LFW updates, not necessarily on the big names. Really handy.

AH HA! Finally, Danielle Scutt! (For some reason, I’ve had the hardest time tracking down any photos…)

Danielle Scutt AW 09/10

Danielle Scutt AW 09/10

Love the upper-left hand flame-like neckline; the lower left cape; the lower right dress…

Ah, LFW truly is in full swing now! The 80’s look has carried over across the pond, along with the monochrome and neutral looks. Let’s have a look-see, shall we?

Starting with Aquascutum.

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Umm… yellow plaid? Ok…

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Almost a Burberry print. Fur detaily on the shoulder. (Coat? Scarf? Live animal? Who knows)

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Black, white & grey. Chic? I think so… Nice trench, which is what the classic Aquascutum was originally known for – its raingear.

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Actually really love this one – all the colours blend really nicely, and the lace accent at the lapel is a wonderful touch.

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Ali Stephens. Rouched white bandy skirt under a flowy, dark, dramatic cape-like coat.

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Busy coat, what with the structured… wrist bits, whatever they’re called. Ah, cuffs. Structured cuffs and all that abstract plaid makes for a great coat, actually.

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Cute polka dot b&w coat with a bow.

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Nice lines on this one, and nice gloves as well. Love the mixing of 3 totally different, but complementary prints.

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Nice floppy bow accent up top.

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

I’d love the coat if it weren’t for the buffalo plaid lining. I don’t know if it’s just from growing up surrounded by hicks in it, but I have acquired a strong aversion to buffalo plaid. Sorry. Myf Shepard.

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Like this one. Nice colours & sleeves, and cute little skirt.

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Liu Wen. Another good look – ruffles, shoulders, dramatic neckline.

Aquascutum Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Imogen Morris Clarke. All black, all layers, partially ruffly, all chic.

OK, moving on to Chloe for OC.

Part eclectic, part London punk, all very Chloe.

Chloë Sevigny for O.C. Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Keeping it simple with cool shoes and a striped sweater.

Chloë Sevigny for O.C. Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

I find it a bit weird/disturbing that I’d totally wear those pants. (More disturbing, though? This guy’s ‘stache and bowl-over-the-head cut.)

Chloë Sevigny for O.C. Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Gorgeous wedges, totally 80’s hair and pants.

Chloë Sevigny for O.C. Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

So cute & wearable! Seriously, I could walk away in this and not change a thing.

Chloë Sevigny for O.C. Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Ah! Gotta love the dark grey drapey, hooded top, especially with cuffed basic pants and killer shoes.

Chloë Sevigny for O.C. Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Again, very 80’s. Love this, though… in a strange way I don’t quite understand… and the Shoes. AGH.

Chloë Sevigny for O.C. Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

What is it with the creeper guys???

Short & sweet, Chloe. Moving right along to Jaeger London, yumm…

Sort of a dark 80’s vibe. Nothing groundbreaking, but very cool.

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Great jacket.

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Karlie Kloss. Lots of black again. Nice booties & jacket.

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Ah, intense fur! Katy Fogarty. Great leggings too.

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Blocked, furry coat. Mmm.

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

More stripes. Nice skirt and boots.

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Jourdan Dunn. Great shoes and very simple white tee dress.

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Imogen Morris-Clarke. Love the suit, and I’m starting to really want those shoes. And have I mentioned the hat? Sort of a furry old-school cop hat?

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Ali Stephens. Love the coat, the lines, the optical illusion (sort of). Boots!

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Imogen again. Weird print, love the shoulders and the skirt – nice touch of green there.

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Anastasija Kondratjeva. Crazy coat alert! Love! Love!

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Constance Jablonski. Love the fur & shoulders, and patterned pants! Or is it a jumpsuit? …nope, pants.

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Katy again. Same print, but in purple. Fierce. (Did I really just say that? …crap.)

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Suit!

Jaeger London Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Katrin Thormann. Love the print, the slightly metallicness, and the crazy jeweled neckline.
Pretty nice collection. Now for Christopher Kane!

Christopher Kane Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Of course, love the ruffles, the beige/nude colour, and the fur… but look at the shoes! FLATS on a runway! AHH! Ha ha. I love me a classic oxford.

Christopher Kane Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Ali Stephens. Love the dress (sheer + ruffles).

Christopher Kane Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Slightly different take on the look, and a change of shoes. (Note: I’ve got a few quizzes to study for, so I’ll be relatively succinct for the last 2 designers. Sorry.)

Christopher Kane Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Christopher Kane Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Christopher Kane Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Christopher Kane Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Love the geometricness and the lines and the sheer ruffles. This reminds me of an ancient bronze wall, pieced together by hand. (Not that I’ve ever seen such a wall, but hey…)

Christopher Kane Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Kinga Rajzak. Lines and a corset-style waist.

Christopher Kane Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

More sheer, nude ruffles.
Again, pretty collection. Had a very similar feel to Jaeger’s.

A few looks from Twenty8Twelve:

Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Ali Stephens. This collection had a lot of flowy top and black jackets & pants. Leather, of course.

Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Sophie Srej. (She’s in a bunch of photos above as well). Drapey neck and 80s-style print.

Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Love the shoulders & neck on this one.

Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Liu Wen. One-shoulder, simple dress.

Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Constance. Love the shoes, and look: JEANS! And Balmain copycat shoulders.

Twenty8Twelve Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Jourdan Dunn with the closing look. Great colour, but doesn’t this look so similar to Balmain??

OK, last one: Vivienne Westwood Red Label.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Red coat! I particularly like the wide, open collar.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Cute jumper, thigh-high boots (another big trend), and… if this isn’t 80’s hair, then tell me what is.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Interesting layers there. Oxfords again!

Vivienne Westwood Red Label Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Even more layers!

Vivienne Westwood Red Label Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

80’s hair! Good dress.

Ha ha wow sorry, I totally trailed off towards the end of this post. I should probably start separating them into their own posts, by designer… eh, maybe. Ciao!

Ok, I”d be kidding myself if I told you I’d do a complete post on this, so I won’t lie. Here are a few of my fave looks, though…

Dennis Basso Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Grey fur with gold embellishments and a cloche hat (and look at the shoe. AD S?S 09.)

Dennis Basso Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Dennis Basso Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Dennis Basso Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Small puffs of black fur trim. Je l’adore! (I must say, I hate it when people throw French phrases into their writings just to seem… I don’t know, sophisticated and in-the-know or something, especially if it’s grammatically incorrect… So sorry if I do it – I know it bothers me – but usually I really am slipping into French. It’s a bit of a problem when I’m emailing and the recipient sends me one back, complaining of their lack of comprehension of my Frenglais babbling. Anyway.)

Dennis Basso Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

No fur here – all skin.

Dennis Basso Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear

I like a fur vest or collar or hat or scarf – some smaller embellishment – as opposed to a full-on fur coat, I think. In most cases. There are always, always exceptions.

And just a quick one, from JAK&JIL:

Ah, amazing shoes. Nicholas Kirkwood for Louise ’09. Hah, and my dad thinks my 5″ plain old black stilettos are weird… (Needless to say, I am irrevocably in love with these. I’m a size 10; 9 1/2 if they run big).

Happy LFW everyone!
