Welcome to Day 2 of Fashioneyesta’s favourites for London Fashion Week. Here is where I will be bringing you the best that the designers of London Fashion Week have to offer!
So sit back and enjoy the fashionable delights of Day 2!
John Rocha, a firm favourite of mine, a designer who creates beautiful, feminine and wearable designs for women. Partnered with Designers at Debenahams, Rocha never fails to bring some of the most awe inspiring creations from the catwalk to the high street. And for the upcoming seasons Rocha has created some beautiful pieces using texture, fabric and shape. But one in particular caught my eye from the collection…
Look One: Model is wearing black tights with flat sandal style heels. But, the dress is a stunning black circle skirt dress in a classic 50s new look style with a sheer bodice with flattering 3/4 sleeves. The dress is detailed with 3d flowers in light pastel shades, giving the dress an fairytale, enchanted inspired look. Let us hope that this element of Rocha’s designs are found on the high street later on this year…
Here we have yet another iconic fashion designer that can be found on Britain’s many high streets today. Conran has created a romantic, feminine and flattering range for the catwalk which embraces figure hugging silhouettes, floral patterns and the use of texture and shape to create a catwalk that represents classic style in its best form. Below is a selection of my top picks from the catwalk collection…
Look One: Model is wearing a pair of nude court heel shoes teamed with a sleeveless nude colour shift dress with shimmery undertones and 3d flower detailing.
Look Two: Model is wearing a pair of nude court heel shoes with a flesh coloured dress in a loose fitting design, but with detailing to the waist and a nude pink sheer material top underneath.
Look Three: Mode is wearing a pair of nude court heel shoes with an empire line nude colour dress paired with a nude oversized coat to create a two piece effect. This uniformity speaks sophistication and femininity and is one of my favourite looks from Jasper Conran for the season.
Look Four: Model is wearing a pair of black court heel shoes with a simple a line dress in a flesh coloured sheer material with a high neck line and cap sleeves. But, what makes the dress eye-catching is the bold black polka dot print on the dress.
Holly Fulton, one of my current new found favourite designers, a designer from Edinburgh who’s famous for her use of monochrome designs, patterns and outlines. Her collection for the 2014 catwalk is a combination of striking prints, bold colours, embroidery and a variety of textures. Below is a selection of my favourites from the catwalk, it was rather difficult to pick a few as there were many from this collection that I was fond of….
Look One: Model is wearing a pair of gold suede knee length boots with a rich burgundy red a line skirt with a floral pattern embroidered onto the garment. This is teamed with a light grey loose fitting top in the same floral design in red, the top is detailed around the collar. This uniformity of colours creates a two piece affect in a sophisticated, wearable way.
Look Two: Model is wearing nude flat shoes with black heart detailing to the front, along with a pair of burgundy tailored rousers with an embroidered floral print. This is paired with a sweat top in a similar colour with long sleeves and a quirky image of a women’s hand adorned with bangles running diagonally on the garment.
Look Three: Model is wearing nude flat shoes with black heart detailing to the front, this is teamed with a pair of black cigarette pants with a white floral pattern to the bottom of the trousers and a matching black jumper and an oversized coat in grey with a black floral print. This is a prime example of monochrome at its best and an example of the types of oversized coats that we can expect to see on the high street.
Look Four: Model is wearing a pair of patent black heeled shoes, teamed with a light grey dress with a black daisy print on the garment. This is paired with a long-sleeved, grey sweatshirt with a black daisy print going in a vertical line. This is finished with a black clutch bag.
Look Five: Model is wearing nude flat shoes with black heart detailing to the front, this is paired with a light grey A line, sleeveless dress. The skirt is in an embroidered damask pattern in a light shade of grey.
House of Holland
House of Holland is one of my absolute favourite designers of all time, what I always admire about Henri Holland’s designs is his use of kitsch styles, colour and pattern. In a recent interview Holland described how his latest collection was inspired by ‘patterns that you would find in your Granny’s House’ which is something that has always appealed to me. Here are a selection of my personal favourites from the collection…
Look One: Model is wearing a pair of velvet, cranberry red ballet style shoes with ribbon detailing to the ankle along with white beading. The dress is a vibrant red long sleeved jumper style dress wit sequin detailing in the shapes of perfume bottles, wine glasses and lipsticks, the beading is also prominent on the cuffs. The dress also features a high necked black collar and is a fantastic example of Holland’s ability to make statements with fashion!
Look Two: Model is wearing a pair of velvet, burnt orange ballet style shoes with ribbon detailing to the ankle along with white beading. The dress is a long sleeved jumper style dress in peacock blue with a bold damask print in black. The collar is a white pointed collar underlapped with a black high necked collar. This is an example of what we can expect to see on our high streets in the upcoming months.
Look Three: Model is wearing a pair of dark orange ballet style shoes along with a two piece set, the two piece consists of a light grey circle skirt in a shimmery material paired with a matching 3/4 sleeved top and a high necked collar. The look is finished off with a light blue box shaped bag, this is one of my absolute favourite looks from the Henri Holland catwalk.
Another Day Own and onto Day 3!
