Victoria Beckham Spring Summer 2020

VB_SS20_FINALE_SHOW_PAGE_BANNER_0671201e-e4a2-45a6-a1b1-7da6c3e2ac42_1700xLightness, easiness, freedom. Those are the ideas Victoria Beckham was thinking of for this collection. It’s about dynamic women today, women in motion.

“We took a melting pot of references and inspiration from past decades, then looked to our brand DNA and put everything together into a blender, to make a new, modern mix.

I always love contrasts. The colour is strong – brights punctuating a new palette of neutrals, and injecting ‘off’ mixes that are interesting and fresh. And there’s a play between precise masculine tailoring, and floating soft dresses that let the body breathe inside them.

These dresses are a big story – they feel alive, suspended around the body, ruffles dancing as you walk. They’re super-feminine, a little romantic. They’re in block colours but also print – which has a punch. The prints are bold, almost luminous, against dark backgrounds. They’re not like anything we’ve done before. It adds up to a new kind of sexy – no restriction, not much skin on show but a sense of the body and of the woman inside. For me it’s about that woman really feeling confident and sensual in her clothes.

Controlled and free, living life, reality and believability. There is always a duality in women, moving between different ideas, different moods. I want clothes that move with a woman, that move with her life.”

A.W.A.K.E. Spring Summer 2020

Armenian designer Natalia Alaverdian presented A.W.A.K.E. Spring Summer 2020 collection during London fashion week. As the notes observed:“The singular intention of this label continues to be removal of barriers between daywear and evening. To introduce elegant wit and subtle strangeness into the wardrobes of Alaverdian’s dedicated following.” Check out the entire lineup below.

Christopher Kane Fall 2018 LFW

Christopher Kane’s fall 2018 collection was inspired by “The Joy of Sex.” More accurately, it was based on illustrations from the seminal tome by Christopher Foss and Charles Raymond as opposed to the physical act of copulation. “Every season, there is an element of sexual human behavior to my collections,” he said. “It’s reality.”

Kane gave an androgynous approach to fall ’18 collection complete with strong leathers, colorful pieces made of lace, cage dresses, silky slips and deconstructed fabrics.

The collection’s shoe of note is from a collaboration with orthopedic shoe label . “They’re quite weird,” Kane told FN after the show, “but I like an ugly shoe, as you know.” He was referring, of course, to his three-season partnership with Crocs

 

Emilia Wickstead Fall 2018 LFW

New Zealand-born, London based designer Emilia Wickstead showcased her Fall Winter 2018 ready-to-wear collection, drawing inspirations from the American actress Ali MacGraw, best known from her role in 1970s Love Story movie.

Wickstead’s style has always been described as “graceful”, “understated elegance” and her choice of colors as “pretty but not saccharine.”

Major sleeves have been a big focus on the runway at Wickstead in the last few seasons, this time with with some unusual collar styles in the spotlight. There were plaid pantsuits, coats, dresses and we saw some bold stripes. Check out the full lineup below.

This season saw Christian Louboutin’s second collaboration with Michael
Halpern’s eponymous brand; the designer’s usual high glamour world taking a
bigger, more daring approach for the season, turning traditional eveningwear on
its head.

The rock and roll edge of last season was given an even grittier dress
code for AW18. Inspired by seasoned socialite and sartorial rule breaker Nan
Kemper, the collection showcased a burst of colour wrapped around dazzling
super flares, glittering miniskirts paired with embellished t-shirts and a highly
crafted shoulder of a jacket irreverently morphed into a luxurious mini dress.
Drawing from the ever-changing landscape of the world’s most famous
concrete jungle, exploding peonies and animal prints appeared as recurring
themes, elevated to a three-dimensional quality through embellishment and
metallic fabric treatments.
The dazzling interpretation of an inappropriate glamour – wearing an evening
look at noon, dressing against the dress codes, and the irresistible pleasure of
being out of place – was furthered by the addition of customised Christian
Louboutin styles inspired by Miss Daisy from the Spring Summer 2018
collection.
Matching the fabrics of the most exceptional outfits, thigh high boots come in a
vibrant palette of colours and patterns. The playful mules were a highlight with
contrasting colour block fragments and multicoloured firework sequins. Self
assured ankle boots adorned in Halpern’s AW18 zebra flip motif further
embodies the freedom from fashion etiquette. All three styles are showcased in
a psychedelic fil coupé that comes in both pink and yellow.
All sit atop Christian Louboutin’s sculptural SS18 Gueridon heel, reflecting
Michael Halpern’s creative vision of a silhouette freeze-framing the fleeting
moments of ease embodied in the movement of eveningwear.

London fashion designer duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi celebrated strong women with their Fall 2018 collection,  inspired by Korea’s female Haenyeo divers, some of whom are in their 80s. “They dive for octopus and squid; they are the main bread-winners,” said Bregazzi, “the men stay at home and look after the kids, and it works perfectly.”

The Sea Women’s neoprene dive suits were reflected in the sporty neoprene coats that opened the show; even plissé silk cocktails had neoprene sleeves. While the footwear and weekend totes were covered of goat hair that looked like seaweed.

“We wanted something organic for these eco feminists. We wanted to celebrate a matriarchal society. Because men are not doing a very good job taking care of the world, are they?” said Thornton.

Staged on a sunny Sunday morning inside Topshop’s show-space in Covent Garden, the duo accelerated two gears half way through with some stupendous dresses in a dense tropical floral print before a truly bravura finale. Some ten multi-fabric ecru evening dresses in layers of tulle, sequins and silk, cut on the bias and finished with dense patches of actual seashells, and hints of octopus and sea creatures.
