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.

Men’s Fashion Week is on the go, London being the first stop. Already at its second day of shows, and so much has happened. By looking at a couple of collections, I can see how things have calmed down, sort of, after a very experimental period. At least that’s how I felt about what happened in the past two to three years, strictly men’s fashion speaking. My favorite so far from LVWM Autumn/Winter 19-20 is Private Policy Presented by GQ China’s collection. I vibed with it. There’s a sort of freshness to it, like a forever young spirit. I have seen clothes that could satisfy various needs, ages (if you care) and styles. All of this under the same brand. And on top of that, there’s like a brotherhood transition from a fancy suit to an edgy-looking situation. It’s all connected, even though it may, in theory, look apart. One of my favorite looks is down below.

Tommy Hilfiger’s Tartan & Plaid Inspired Fall/Winter 2017 Collection at LFW

Tommy Hilfiger joined the fun at London Fashion Week, but not the summer or spring where in his mind. The designer revealed its AW 2017 collection, which is a good sight to see among all the SS 2018 collections happening these days. Touched by the grunge feel and presented as urban looks, the collection involved the welcoming sight of tartan and plaid patterns served throughout the show in various shapes and sizes. Long coats, jackets, slip dress, schoolgirl-inspired dresses and skirts, winter long jackets, and pants, were paired with black stockings, beanie hats, and almost everyone on the show had fingerless black with red pattern gloves. Few blurry flower print pieces made it into this collection as well, presented by models dressed in stockings, with leather shorts or long pants, minus the beanies.

Emporio Armani’s SS 2018 Collection at London Fashion Week

Emporio Armani’s collection at London Fashion Week had a little Barbie doll vibe to it, thanks to translucent and iridescent fabrics of pastel aquatic colors modeled into stylish tailored pants, schoolgirl-inspired and long dresses with soft ruffled bottoms, various tops, and summer casual and blazer jackets. Small geometric figures prints and applique made their way into the collection, looking jolly, almost cute, especially since the designer paired them with before mentioned pastel aquatic colored pieces. A nice change of seen was made by modern hieroglyph styled prints. The clothes looked marvelous and surprisingly still in tune with what happened before on the runway. The glimpse of color red was there, yet managed to have no say in the final result. Talking of which, could not have been better placed in time.
