London Fashion week -DAY 2

Leave a Comment


Daks once again showed us simple elegant and britishness, all skirts were pleated and below the knee in heritage tweed and checks. There was minimalistic pure white that turned into colour with countrified patterns with conservative cuts. Cocoon coats were a highlight they were oversized and made a statement along with minimalist shift dress and high-waisted shorts. The end of the collection was toughened up with black leather dresses, skirts and coats. Daks was classic and British as it always is.

Rag and Bone was a must see show for me and although I never got tickets for it, I was streaming it live from Drapers. The first thing I noticed was the feminine and masculine relationship working as well as it usually does for Rag and Bone.
There were Middle Eastern influences with voluminous tops and head wraps that had a desert like palette. Moving on to quilted outerwear and lightweight jackets. There were also British references within the collection these came in checks on skirts and classic petticoats whilst introducing the modern London vibes with neon green. Black leather was seen in panels in cropped biker jackets that showed inspiration from sportswear. And who else better to model for Rag and Bone than Cara Delevingne.

House of Holland
House of Holland never ceases to amaze me, first it was with the invitation sent out which was a tie-dye IPhone 4 case, and there and then I knew exactly that it was going to be a highlight show for me. Holland chose a NCP car park in Soho with a neon-clubbing atmosphere to show his collection, which was a breath of fresh air if you ask me. Holland started with jackets and trousers that were patterned in colour popping criss-cross teamed with oversized jewels. Nineties grunge dresses came next with brocade sequins and lace following. There was tie-dye leather, shimmering metallic chiffon and sheer shirts with splashes of acid yellow that were all in the form of biker jackets and shoes.

Issa London

Classic Issa, everyone loves Issa especially our very own Duchess of Cambridge, and there is reason for it.
Issa London experimented with digital printing and this showed with the bright vivid patterns in fuchsia, royal blue, violet, emerald and scarlet. Geisha inspired seventies jumpsuits were seen along with deep purple halter neck items. The finale was paradise or so it seemed with tropical prints with exotic birds, tigers and elephants, that were all teamed with chunky pieces of gold jewellery and orchids in the hair.
