With London Fashion week wrapped up for another season, it’s time we review the best tweets, looks, and impressions made by our very fave designers and street style stars (because, let’s face it: they’re half the fun of a successful fashion week in any part of the world).
For starters, there were the bright and playful faux fur Shrimps jackets and clutches, which were, of course, spotted on the forever-whimsical Susie Bubble. The up-and-coming line has been collecting a number of sartorial fans, in fact, both Julia Sarr-Jamois and Natalie Massenet have hopped on the trend as well. Other street style looks included the same bold colours and plaids we’ve been crushing on as of late.
On the runway, Cara Delevingne was everywhere from Burberry (sporting relaxed shearling coats to quaint hand-painted bags) to Topshop Unique and Mulberry, where she—and her new line of bags—held all of our attention in a near magical, wooded setting. Rodarte had us at hello with their Star Wars themed gowns (talk about bloggable!). Kate and Laura Mulleavy officially know the way into our pop culture hearts. Mary Katrantzou debuted embellished textiles as opposed to her usual print-heavy looks, and frankly, our jaws dropped in admiration. Can she do no wrong?
In the Twittersphere, Vogue noted London Fashion Week’s re-envisioning of the little black dress, thanks to David Koma’s structured, dominatrix-style design, Christopher Kane’s crumpled nylon mini, and Tom Ford’s sequin-covered jerseys, to name a few. Not surprisingly, the latter left crowds quoting the best of rap geniuses, Jay-Z: “I don’t pop molly, I rock Tom Ford.
