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.
Umm… yellow plaid? Ok…
Almost a Burberry print. Fur detaily on the shoulder. (Coat? Scarf? Live animal? Who knows)
Black, white & grey. Chic? I think so… Nice trench, which is what the classic Aquascutum was originally known for – its raingear.
Actually really love this one – all the colours blend really nicely, and the lace accent at the lapel is a wonderful touch.
Ali Stephens. Rouched white bandy skirt under a flowy, dark, dramatic cape-like coat.
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.
Cute polka dot b&w coat with a bow.
Nice lines on this one, and nice gloves as well. Love the mixing of 3 totally different, but complementary prints.
Nice floppy bow accent up top.
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.
Like this one. Nice colours & sleeves, and cute little skirt.
Liu Wen. Another good look – ruffles, shoulders, dramatic neckline.
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.
Keeping it simple with cool shoes and a striped sweater.
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.)
Gorgeous wedges, totally 80’s hair and pants.
So cute & wearable! Seriously, I could walk away in this and not change a thing.
Ah! Gotta love the dark grey drapey, hooded top, especially with cuffed basic pants and killer shoes.
Again, very 80’s. Love this, though… in a strange way I don’t quite understand… and the Shoes. AGH.
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.
Karlie Kloss. Lots of black again. Nice booties & jacket.
Ah, intense fur! Katy Fogarty. Great leggings too.
Blocked, furry coat. Mmm.
More stripes. Nice skirt and boots.
Jourdan Dunn. Great shoes and very simple white tee dress.
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?
Ali Stephens. Love the coat, the lines, the optical illusion (sort of). Boots!
Imogen again. Weird print, love the shoulders and the skirt – nice touch of green there.
Anastasija Kondratjeva. Crazy coat alert! Love! Love!
Constance Jablonski. Love the fur & shoulders, and patterned pants! Or is it a jumpsuit? …nope, pants.
Katy again. Same print, but in purple. Fierce. (Did I really just say that? …crap.)
Katrin Thormann. Love the print, the slightly metallicness, and the crazy jeweled neckline.
Pretty nice collection. Now for Christopher Kane!
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.
Ali Stephens. Love the dress (sheer + ruffles).
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.)
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…)
Kinga Rajzak. Lines and a corset-style waist.
More sheer, nude ruffles.
Again, pretty collection. Had a very similar feel to Jaeger’s.
A few looks from Twenty8Twelve:
Ali Stephens. This collection had a lot of flowy top and black jackets & pants. Leather, of course.
Sophie Srej. (She’s in a bunch of photos above as well). Drapey neck and 80s-style print.
Love the shoulders & neck on this one.
Liu Wen. One-shoulder, simple dress.
Constance. Love the shoes, and look: JEANS! And Balmain copycat shoulders.
Jourdan Dunn with the closing look. Great colour, but doesn’t this look so similar to Balmain??
OK, last one: Vivienne Westwood Red Label.
Red coat! I particularly like the wide, open collar.
Cute jumper, thigh-high boots (another big trend), and… if this isn’t 80’s hair, then tell me what is.
Interesting layers there. Oxfords again!
Even more layers!
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!
