London Fashion Week Opened With A Busy Schedule and Lots of Great Shows

London Fashion Week has just begun and I’m already in awe for these three collections:

Jamie Wei Huang’s collection at LFW is an exploring adventure, kept in place by shades of grey, mixed with blue and red. These three colors are the main characters, with blue slightly dominating more in presence and variation. Looks are build from layers of unpretentious pieces which consists of oversized shirts on top of some dress or a long skirt. Extra long scarves and socks keep warm and make it look cozy for the viewer.

British-Chinese-Vietnamese designer A Sai Ta showcased it’s very first ‘on its own’ collection at LFW under the name ASAI. The looks carry a bit of a Peter Pan vibe, however, taken one by one, we have a bunch of good looking pieces to wear on a day to day basis. Coats have just the right feel to ‘mix and match’ with more glammy pieces, and just as good to create a very casual look. I’ve seen a handsome pantsuit and I adore the look of the skirt with a middle split leading to patterned pants.

Gayeon collection has pieces of Victorian inspiration, at least the upper part, which makes dresses look quite tasteful. Colors throughout the entire collection are kept humble and unnoticeable but don’t be tricked by that. Clothes have so much more to offer in terms of feel and look.

Chanel Couture Collection Invites to Playfulness and Good Looking Pink

Arranged to look like you’re having an out of the body experience right in the backyard of a glamorous Italian villa, Chanel took its pinks, the little flowers, the bride, and gorgeous mules down the runway for showcasing its Couture collection for Spring 2019. Each silhouette walked around a decent size pond or pool, depending on the type of imagination you have, and posed right at the middle, with a perfect arranged background to emphasize the amazingness of all the craftsmanship that went into this fine collection. The mules I was talking about are designed to have a strap behind, so ultimately, we are left with a very refined shoe. Very lady-like too. As for the pink and violet, I can’t even breath. The shades that were chosen are heavenly soft and pure looking. All the other details are added only to reinforce the general ‘gentle and playful’ vibe. All the other colors known to be Chanel-approved are having individual moments of triumph, ultimately balancing everything out. It all looks eye-catching and grand, that’s for sure.

Christopher Kane and its Fabolous Show at London Washion Week

Christopher Kane had a fabulous show, presented of course at London Fashion Week, where the crème de la crème of the British designers are currently showcasing collections for Spring/Summer.

The designer does not disappoint, ever, in terms of attention to details. For this show, there’s an androgyne look, where you simply have to embrace the not knowing at whom you’re looking at. To reinforce the feel, there’s work in creating a soft, attractive look, yet elements are not always embodying the classic feminine. It’s rather playful and a little ‘out of the box’. What you never thought of, you see it here, in this collection, looking more satisfying than what you might think. Fabrics are soft. There is even a return to the classic sneaker, to which I felt I’m back to a very good place. But that’s just a ‘passing through’ the show. What’s really happening, are these red or white victorian inspired booties/shoes, carrying an emphasized shoe tongue, which gives the whole piece the perfect refined feel to work like magic next to all these architectural inspired clothes. Other booties are created to sit relaxed around the ankle and glammed up with a sparkling stripe. Another fantastic match is one between clean looking high sports shoes, with a revealing inside heel paired with clothes from the collection. I really feel Christopher managed to redefine the feminine into a genderless look, yet not losing the softness and the beauty of Venus.

A Fast Look at Milan Men’s Fashion Week SS 2018 Schedule

With only four days apart from London’s Men’s Fashion Week final, it is Milan’s turn to host collections, mostly Italian labels, for the Milan Men’s Fashion Week for season SS 2018. Yesterday June the 16th when it began, two shows were to check in and today, as I am typing, Versace is having its collection presented, simultaneously having it broadcasted live on social media.

Earlier today there was plenty to look at, with Diesel Black Gold being the first to showcase, and I have to say, the list is well packed or better said, it was well packed since we’re already near the end of the day. Dolce & Gabanna, Marni, Neil Barrett, Armani and few other labels have already completed the task of presenting their Men’s SS 2018 collection. German designer Philipp Plein is closing the day. What a treat!

Sunday has the longest schedule, with Prada and DSQUARED2 on the runway, followed by labels Fendi and Giorgio Armani to show on Monday among other brands, with Frankie Morello having the last say for the day.
With that Milan Men’s Fashion Week will be completed, showcasing a good bunch of well-known brands, some of which are expected with excellent collections. The official final day is on Tuesday, June the 20th.
