Capes are big news for this season and there have been a fair few floating around Somerset House during London Fashion Week. Peter’s, from Cracker Your Wardrobe, really stood out. The juxtaposition of his top half compared to the bottom is effortlessly cool. Traditional British red plaid scarf and a deep green cape emblazoned with military badges are offset by quirky high tops and distressed denim. A lesson in how to cape it.
Caught the Spring 2011 shows for Masha Ma and Kinder Aggugini today. Spent a lot of the day sipping vitamin water in the press lounge; it really is true that the ability to eat is sucked right out of you during fashion week. The rest of the time I shot the crazy-beautiful folk that were surrounding Somerset House.
p.s. A certain illustrious fashion editor sat in front of me at Kinder. She was wearing some wild headgear which consisted of two giant cherries planted firmly on the side of her head. I’m uploading randomly bizarre shots, like the aforementioned one, onto Facebook because I don’t want to overcrowd this site with a gazillion LFW shots. So head over there to see the weird and the wonderful of fashion week.
Wearing: Dolce&Gabbana Embellished Trim Pocket Jacket and Vanessa Bruno Athe Drape Dress. Items were kindly lent to me by My-Wardrobe. The Bruno dress was amazingly comfortable to wear and so flattering with the cinched in waist. By far the most impressive jersey dress I have ever seen or worn. Felt a bit like an uber-fashionista in the jacket. Slipping it over your shoulders literally transforms the way you feel. Seriously chic. I’d swap my hoodie for the beauty any day. Now, if I can just find a job that will allow me to purchase 800 quid jackets…

Quick sneak peek at the shows I attended yesterday. Spring 2011 – Bernard Chandran, Betty Jackson, Spijkers en spijkers, and Bryce Aime.
Met two of the girls from Anywho at LFW today. They looked just as gorgeously laid back and cool as they do on their blog. If you haven’t seen their site get over to it pronto.
