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.
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.
I woke up this morning with thoughts of Ashish floating around inside my head – slouchy oversized white shirts and lots of sequins. All the models wore old school white Reeboks. They’re so bad that they’re somehow good. Ashish is always one of my favourite shows at London Fashion Week. I’d give my little pinky to have one of the oversized sequined T-shirts.
p.s. the scrunchie is clearly making a comeback.
Pastel coloured balloons arched over the catwalk of the Meadham Kirchhoff show this afternoon creating a candy coloured paradise. Before it even began Spice Girls was playing and that was enough to get people cheering. In no way was I prepared for what was about to happen…
To begin, a group of impassioned dancers filled the center of the catwalk. They powdered their chests and applied lipstick before throwing themselves into a wild performance. Like rag dolls their limbs were thrown around into a can-can dance of the most unusual variety. While this was taking place the collection was shown. I struggled to know where to focus (as a result, so did my camera) because there was so much to look at and so much movement.
After the first group scurried off a new set of dancers took to the stage. Only these were young ballerinas and their arrival signaled the beginning of a far more regal and avant-garde collection than what was first shown. It was incredible. A show like nothing I’ve seen before. It was playful, imaginative, and perfectly executed all at the same time.
It would be one thing if I had a private car to drop me at the door of every show… I’d wear heels all the time and be fabulous every day. I’d never have a hair out of place. But, the truth is fashion week isn’t that easy. You’re standing all day, waiting in lines, running after people to shoot and squatting to get the right angle. I’m not complaining – just explaining why my outfits are progressively getting more casual.Wore these maroon Zara trousers that I snatched up for 25 quid. Totally love them. Only got home to find they’ve split at the side. Umm, Zara?! Get your shizz together. They aren’t even too tight (I promise). Have had a lazy morning, need to get myself together and out of the house. It’s Meadham Kirchoff and Aminaka Wilmont today and the last day for womenswear.
