Welcome back to the third edition of ‘Fashioneyesta’s London Fashion Week Favourites!’ For this instalment I will be taking you through some of my fashion favourites from the catwalks which never cease to amaze me this year!
So, as ever read on and enjoy!
Topshop Unique is one of the many marvels to me in the fashion industry. Not only is it the only high street company that showcases at London Fashion Week. But it is also a key fashion business for an fashionista wanting to keep up to date with the latest trends and fashions of the seasons. In short it is the place to be should you wish to keep your finger on the catwalk pulse! TopShop Unique this year is embracing a combination of aspects from the new season, it incorporates a popular theme of using the full circle skirt, combining textures and the use of two bold colours to create a statement. But, TopShop Unique this year is one of the most appealing catwalks that i have currently seen. Here are a selection of my favourite pieces from the catwalk…
Look One: Model is wearing black patent shoes teamed with a full skirt dress with has two tones of colour on the skirt, the underskirt in black and the overskirt in a tule material in a flesh colour to create affect. The bodice of the dress is in the same flesh coloured material and has lace detailing in a floral shape around the chest area in a symmetrical design. This trend embraces the full skirt trend which is already proving to be a prominent trend for Spring/Summer and one that I predict will last through the Autumn/Winter months.
Look Two: Model is wearing plum coloured, suede knee length boots with a cobalt blue dress with is uderlayed with a plum coloured polar kneck blouse. The look is finished with a black, oversized coat in a striking floral print in colours of blue and white and a plum coloured slouchy clutch to complete the entire look.
Look Three: Model is wearing black tights with patent heeled ankle boots teamed with a simple black dress which has tule detailing to the skirt. But what really makes the look special is the gold oversized coat featuring a black peacock pattern on the front. It is one of those pieces that stick rigidly in your minds eye.
Temperley London: Fashioneyesta Loves
I was utterly, truly and completely spellbound by the range that Temperley London had to offer for the new season, by far their Catwalk was an array of patterns, textures, shapes and colours. Temperely London is a fashion brand that is about real life women and choosing clothing depending on your lifestyle. Hence with wide variety of shapes and styles that can be seen on the Catwalk It was exceedingly difficult not to simply just showcase them all to you, but with great difficulty, I have narrowed my favourites down to the ones you see below…
Look One: Model is wearing a long sleeves maxi dress in the style rather like a Japanese kimono. The diamond neckline on this dress also gives it a aristocratic feel and presents a feel of dresses from bygone years. There is detailing to the sleeves, neckline and hem of the dress using white embroidery which is also depicted in an ornate design on the body of the skirt.
Look Two: Model is wearing a sheer, white maxi dress is a chiffon material, combined with the detailing at the waist and the outline on the bodice of the dress and sleeves. This dress is a truly stunning piece which reminds me of designs from the roaring 20s. I sincerely hope that we see more maxi dresses on the high street this year than ever before!
Look Three: Model is wearing black thigh length boots along with a silk material dress with a flared skirt and detailing to the waist and kimono sleeves. The dress features a rich ornate pattern in colours of orange, blue and green. The sleeves also continue but in a more sheer material.
Look Four: Model is wearing black tights with beige platform ankle boots and a nude colour dress in a two tone design using a combination of two materials. One being a silk like material on the outer edges of the skirt, finishing with a more matt like material on the inner area of the skirt and bodice. This dress creates the optical illusion of being thinner and combined with the light pink rose pattern embodies the spirit of femininity and classic style.
Look Five: Model is wearing a pair of black thigh length suede boots and a delightful ensemble with uses a mixture of different patterns. But unlike the convention use of stripes and polka dots, this design features a more daring combination of patterns. The a line skirt in black consists of a gold Jacquard embroidered print and the blouse in a sheer, black material uses a vibrant floral pattern in reds, light pinks and oranges which is also used in the matching scarf that is draped over the models shoulder. This is a striking look on the catwalk and creates a tapestry like feel, but one that uses patterns to create definition.
That wraps it up for Day 3!
Now onto Day 4!
