Once again, the big wigs in the fashion industry
returned to the catwalks of London for the 2010 London Fashion Week. Designers,
supermodels, press, and fashion legends from all around the globe flocked into
the suitably sumptuous Somerset House to witness what every designer had in
store for them.
Here are some of the bests of the this year's event, as loved by us of course!
Christopher Kane. His fall collection was stunning. In
fact, many think that this collection could win him another Collection of the
Year award. Kane's inspiration was the combination of leather embroideries and
black lace. While many of us may think that this could be a very unlikely
combination at first, the outputs were undeniably amazing. Just like what's
he's known for, skirts and dresses were kept short. Kane also took inspiration
from the "Priscilla Presley" look which he mockingly described as "the time
before Elvis got his hands on her."
Sass & Bide. The look for Sass & Bide reminds
us of Daphne Guinness - voluminous height and hair styles and the two-tone
effect of metallic headpiece. The collection was meant to be edgy, cool, and
with a lot of spunk. While many said that the clothes were not street-ready,
Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton believes that every piece in their
collection exudes confidence and could be easily adapted into a wearable fashion
ensemble for the summer.
Burberry. Christopher Bailey, creative director for
Burberry, could never be happier. The British designer keeps an eye on a wide
range of collections every year - men, women, children, sports wear, underwear,
denim, home wear, accessories, etc. But this busy schedule does not compromise
the pieces that he shows in every catwalk. One of the highlights of the London
Fashion Week was the Burberry womenswear collection. It was the very first
fashion show to be watched live in 3D. Viewers could instantly buy their
favorite designs as models ramped off the runway simply by clicking the "buy"
button on their screens. But more than just that, everybody was awed by the
coats that came with double collars and military accents. In fact, fashion
forecasts have it that the military coat will be a huge hit next year.
Matthew Williamson. Matthew Williamson is best known
for his bright and young collection but this year, he tried a more matured look
for dresses. While some pieces had the multi-colored Williamson signature on
them, other dresses had details of ruffles and drapery adding an element of
sophistication into his collection. He experimented with warm shades of peach,
orange, fuchsia, icy grey, and blue. Despite the "grown-up" twist, sparkles and
colors prevailed. And everybody was very happy with how the collection came
out. While some dresses are sure to look a little dull for his rumored
girlfriend Lady Gaga, they would still look stunning on some of his loyal
clients like Jade Jagger and Sienna Miller. In fact, if there was one show
viewers wished they could watched on 3D, it would be Willamson's.
London Fashion Week just gave us the fashion forecast
for next year. If you want to be ahead of everybody else, check out the trends
in every collection.
