If you can’t go all out on the last day of London Fashion Week when can you go all out?
For the last day I wanted to play around with layers through street style inspiration and incorporating some of the biggest trends of the season. I went with the Palace Tupac T-shirt, in an extra large so it was more like a dress, over top of a North Face zip up fleece. I also wore a fish nets paired with thigh-high black boots, which have been one of my favourite pieces since it was nearly impossible to find a flat pair of thigh-highs. Lastly I wore my Zara white puffer jacket off the shoulders. This coat has been popping up all over fashion week, as it was the perfect Balenciaga substitute for the winter.
To finish the look off I wore a clear lens pair of aviators, which I featured on my favourite things post along with the jacket and shirt.
For the fourth day of London Fashion Week I finally got to wear my Dior 'So Real' sunglasses that I found at a designer second hand sale a few months ago. I went comfy with Adidas reworked joggers from one of London's best vintage stores Beyond Retro and Nike Air Force 1s. The black Zara top I wore has quickly become one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe for the spring. With built in shoulder pads and a slight crop it elevates a simple outfit. To finish off I wore a forest green bomber jacket with ribbons off the shoulders.
Day two of London Fashion Week had me running all over the city. Starting with the Edeline Lee presentation at the OXO Tower, which has been my favourite location so far, to the TopShop Show Space at the Tate Modern, and finishing off at the home base of Fashion Week, 180 Strand. Lucky enough, London was kind to the fashion goers and it was beautiful weather.
I planned to wear my 99% Youth t-shirt to Fashion Week as soon as I got it. The words are meant to be worn on the back of the shirt but to make the statement piece seen I wore it the "wrong" way. The shirt was the star piece of my outfit so I went simple with the rest, ripped jeans, a green bomber with ribbons on the sleeves for some flair, and black heeled booties by Timberland, which are the only heels I'd wear to Fashion Week because of their comfort.
I added a biker boy hat, the trend hat of the year, from Aritzia. Tying the look all together was a coral red lip from Mac.
Day one of London Fashion Week was my most packed day of the season, and the most packed day of any fashion week I've been to. With one catwalk, four presentations, and an event, I needed an outfit that would work for the whole day and night.
I went with an all vintage, no surprise there, street wear inspired look. I wore a vintage Fendi jacket, which has been the best item I've found in any thrift store this year.
I paired the statement jacket with a black turtle neck and a pair of reworked vintage Adidas joggers.
I orginaly had wanted to wear little black heels but with a full day of walking a decided to go with classic Nike Air Force 1.
Couture Week seemed to be over and done with before it even started this season. There is reason for this, with Menswear week capturing more attention than ever and five days for 21 shows the event was a flash of sparkles and rouching.
There are many things that we have grown to expect during Couture Week; a conceptualized show from Chanel, flowing dresses from Valentino, and fabulous parties with the biggest models wearing looks straight of the runway. This year followed these trends but there were some moments that stood out above the rest.
Here are the top runway moments that made Couture Week what it should be, the art of fashion.
The Menswear Balanciga show was both a political statement and a sea of trend spotting.
There is no doubt that Demma Gvasalia understands young people and exactly what they want from high fashion. Even in a collection built overwhelmingly of suits it’s aesthetic was edgy and filled with sportswear influence.
So let’s count the trends that were made and reworked in the show.
