Mary Katrantzou Catwalk Fashion Show London Womenswear SS2019

It’s been a decade since Mary Katrantzou first started out. Time to celebrate! And so she did. But Katrantzou didn’t reflect on those ten years. She wanted newness and so she came up with a fresh take on the signature look she created over the years. “Collecting” is the theme for SS2019 covering a mix of Katrantzou’s most favorite silhouettes, techniques and most recognizable prints and images. The structured silhouettes (A-line, column, circular) were impeccable. The details (embroidered flowers, shiny beads and sequins) looked exquisite. The color palette (of bright ombre shades) was as impressive as always. She turned butterflies, stamps, insects, perfume bottles and works of art into dazzling digital prints. There were veils, head wraps and caps as Jimmy Choo worked out a matching shoe game. Almost too much prettiness to take in in only fifteen minutes of showtime. 10 year anniversary pieces most certainly deserve a second and a closer look.

 

Victoria Beckham Catwalk Fashion Show London Womenswear SS2019

Another ten year anniversary during London Fashion Week. Not only Mary Katrantzou but Victoria Beckham too celebrated her decade in fashion. For the occasion she brought her label back to London instead of taking part in the usual NYFW. Ten years of Victoria Beckham the label and boy did she grow up. From the bodycon dresses (which did very well) she started out with to the structured jackets and jacquard trousers with spliced ankles that define her look at the moment. Bare faced models with slick hairdos looked confident and cool in the layered looks. Suit jackets over loose tees over airy skirts over trousers paired with either silver or white booties. Although some combinations might not have appeared very natural they did have a certain effortlessness about them. Lace tops were feminine and delicate, yet paired with those spliced at the ankle trousers never too sexy. Which is something Victoria Beckham has mastered like no-one else over the years. Looking hot but keeping it cool. And so with this collection she stayed true to her core, but most certainly didn’t look back or reflect on the past decade. The ex Spice Girl (should we even still bring that up?) has come a long way, she proofed she earns a spot in fashion (and beauty too soon: “We’re going to launch a beauty brand as well, so I’m going to be developing makeup, skincare and fragrance — that’s something that I’m very excited about”, the designer said) and is here to stay. “It just feels like the start of the next 10 years”, she said. Well cheers to another decade Victoria!

Christopher Kane Catwalk Fashion Show London Womenswear SS2019

As was the case with two of his last collections today’s Christopher Kane line up had sex as a theme. Inspired by David Attenborough’s films on the mating behaviors of wildlife and Marilyn Monroe the designer and his co-creative director and sister Tammy came up with a sensual but sophisticated collection. Or, as Christopher called it himself: “It’s intellectual. It’s subversive.”

Nature and Sex was the name of the show. And all prints could be directly linked to it. ‘Sexual Cannibalism’ read a few sweaters, ‘Horse Power’ and ‘Foreplay’ was written on a few other items. Quite simple sporty pieces that contradicted with some of the glamorous, shiny disco pieces. Another contradiction could be found in the delicate – next to nothing – lace tops vs. the strong shouldered jacquard jackets.

Shoewise there were sneakers and sex toy inspired pumps. No bags or jewelry were used; the clothes had enough details on their own. Especially since diamonds formed a theme too. They were there as a print on sheer evening dresses. And as real chunky and colourful stones on the necklines and chests of a few dresses and tops.

A shiny, loose fitting purple suit could have come straight out of 1001 nights and surely looked like the comfiest fit for a night out. All other designs with sparkling straps (cuffs, necklines, shoulders and hips) were mesmerizingly beautiful. Funny how delicate such a sex inspired collection can turn out.

Burberry Catwalk Fashion Show London Womenswear SS2019

Yesterday Risccardo Tisci presented his much anticipated debut collection for Burberry. And if the number of looks he designed was an indicator for the success, he surely didn’t disappoint. He came up with a (so it seemed) never ending show filled with 134 menswear and womenswear looks divided into three chapters Refined, Relaxed, and Evening. In each chapter Tisci presented his vision on British culture, altogether this was the British lifestyle. A leading role, naturally, for the trenchcoat in many variations. The Burberry check that is now all over Instagram was less present. It only briefly popped up, more in the form of a Burberry stripe. The womenswear looks were very dressed up as Tisci is trying to bring more sophistication into fashion again and focus less on the street. Midi skirts and blouses, high waisted pants, suit jackets, capelike designs with cut-outs, loafers & white socks and heels made up for a feminine and well dressed summer wardrobe for the ladies. As the lads will look equally stylish in pinstripe suits (cinched at the waist), parkas, polos with a zipper, oversized cape inspired Tees, that red colourful tracksuits and just a splash of leopard print. 134 looks to easily get you through next summer.

Delpozo Catwalk Fashion Show London Womenswear SS2019

Pretty aqua painted artwork clips on DelPozo’s Instagram had us tiptoeing towards the SS2019 collection presentation over the last few days. A lovely light yet colourful countdown (DelPozo’s signature) that had us guessing what the show’s theme would be. With Josep Font as creative director the Spanish brand delivered a light hearted collection filled with transparency.

Inspired by the work of Murano glass artist Fulvio Bianconi Font created countless looks with sheer parts and see through details. With some models it even felt like you could see right through them, yet their clothes obviously were too beautiful to miss. Hand embroidered, nature inspired details on tops and dresses gave the collection an extra touch of delicacy. Although the light colored, ruffled and draped ensembles already spoke of next level elegancy.

Floral shaped headpieces and silver colored gladiator sandals embellished with petal shaped details gave a dreamy, light touch to the looks the fresh faced models wore. Looks that certainly had a lot going on, yet thanks to the color palette, the silhouette and the effortless way the clothes were worn looked simple and modest.

For next summer those button down blouses, knee length skirts, tea dresses and one shoulder, draped tops is all we want to wear. Oh and everything in this lovely palette of mint green, white and lilac hues please.

DelPozo Catwalk Fashion Show London FW2018

The Spanish label DelPozo switched New York for London and staged the show at the Royal Institute of British Architects. The collection was about the fuse of nature and art, with happy colors and simple, curving lines that followed the shapes of the body.

Elegant and sculptural leather belts done in lily-pad shapes cinched many a trouser and dress waist while big faux-fur flowers — in electric blue or bougainvillea pink — sat on the collars of coats, or covered small clutch bags.
Color combinations were offbeat, with some working a treat, as in a marine blue A-line dress with a bright yellow collar, a long cinnamon coat with a pale blue flower belt, and a pink dress with feather-light red tulle panels at the side.

Other combinations veered more toward the Neapolitan ice cream sundae — in particular the light brown and yellow exploded hound’s tooth capes and the pink, camel and cream color blocks on an A-line dress and trousers.
