Setting the tone for the new season, Nicole Farhi unveils a minimal collection for spring at London Fashion Week. With a muted color scheme of mostly cream and neutrals, the latest outing reads as resort ready with its pastel hues and slouchy silhouettes.
The spring offering from Christopher Kane delivers a bright color palette of neon green, orange and pink inspired by Britain’s Princess Margaret. Undoubtedly, one of the most anticipated shows from London Fashion Week, the presentation featured top models such as Jessica Stam and Karolina Kurkova. Despite its classic silhouettes, the Scottish designer presented a revamped version on forties staples with the addition of leather, piping and psychedelic prints.
Debuting a more muted color palette for the spring season, Matthew Williamson’s latest effort proved to be one inspired by a fusion of military inspired looks and tribal motifs. However, despite missing the signature color scheme, kaleidoscopic prints were still present in the form of billowing floor length dresses held up by woven straps.
Sleek leather paired with airy silk and chiffon pieces makes for a severe yet feminine collection for Richard Nicoll’s spring 2011 showing. Dominated by forties and fifties silhouettes, the classic looks are modernized by lingerie garments, sportswear inspired jackets and sheer pants. With a color palette ranging from jet black to powder pink ensembles, the the British-born, Australian-raised designer brings a sense of daring to the new season.
The spring outing from Topshop Unique brought a seventies discotech to the runway for the second day of London Fashion Week. Featuring fringe, tie dye and sheer materials, the latest collection from the British label is all about going big. From the models frizzy and teased hair to the loud prints, seventies glam crossed the pond from New York to London.
Delving into the new season with lingerie style dresses, Julien MacDonald brings a sense of romance to London Fashion Week. As always, the Julien MacDonald woman was one of glamour with models donning voluminous hair and smoky eyes for spring. Subtle prints and jackets paired with sheer ensembles brought a slight edge to a ultra-feminine collection.
