I’m completely in love with Moxham. My favourite piece from the new spring/summer collection is the Osiris necklace. It’s massively chunky and quite heavy but such an awesome statement piece. Here I’m wearing it over one of my favourite t-shirts that I picked up on ebay.
This is the only photo that really matters from the Topshop Unique show – it displays all the best bits of the collection. A swingy full pink sequined skirt bounces around and hits at mid-calf. There were lots of trousers that were exactly the same length (I want a pair, desperately). You can just see a hint of the jacket on the model’s arm. It’s an oversized slouchy number with sleeves that have been turned up. Cropped and wide, it’s a shape that showed up on many looks from the collection and will undoubtedly be a popular fit come next autumn. Last, there’s the shoes. Oh, the shoes. I love them dearly and have made a mental note of adding them to my imaginary shopping basket. They would do rather nicely on my feetsies comes next Autumn. I like the idea of wearing baby pink in the fall. Normally it’s more of a spring colour but Topshop shows it deserves a place in winter too. I couldn’t agree with them more on this.
Topshop, you’ve rocked my world once again.
Meet one of my favourite cardigans. By Swedish brand DAGMAR, it’s super fluffy and soft with a multicoloured pattern from the waist down. It’s so warm that when I was in London I could wear it without a coat or a jacket. Love.
Forget about sky high heels, this season at London Fashion Week the fashionable crowd were all sporting Nike trainers. I’m rubbish when it comes to heels. I’d much rather wear a pair of bright tennis shoes any day. The only problem is choosing which pair to go for. Nike has so many options and they are all customizable. You can choose the colour you want for every part of the shoe. With that much choice I’m left a bit clueless for what to pick. I do know one thing for sure though, this is a trend I can definitely get behind.
Shooting backstage at Michael van der Ham was serene. Everything was clicking away like clock work. The models had fake half fringes clipped into their hair and had dark moody eyeliner applied to their lids. I love seeing the clothes hanging on the rail and then seeing them come to life on the catwalk…
The collection was absolutely gorgeous. There were tops (see top right) with holes cut out of them. It almost looks as if some super powerful moths went to work on the fabric. My favourite pieces were the sheer tops (see top middle) with embroidery on them and the brocade pencil leg trousers. The show closed with three stunning dresses that would look killer on any red carpet. Michael van der Ham isn’t a designer that I was familiar with before the show but since seeing this collection he’s become one of my favourite London designers. *Collage photos from style.com*
Massive thanks to ebay for getting me backstage and for inviting me to the show.
