Best Of London Fashion Week (III)

New York Fashion Week is over and now it’s time for a new set of designers to dazzle you with their creations for next season, Fashion avec Passion is here to bring you the most spectacular shows from London Fashion Week:

Christopher Kane

Elegance with a dash of bizarre – that’s how one could describe Christopher Kane’s collection for the Spring/Summer 2013 season.

Cocktail dresses made out of sheets of plastic, pieces with rubber inserts and organza dresses with crystal appliqués and lace inserts held together by strips of black gaffer tape are just some of the pieces with strange accents that Kane put together for his show at London Fashion Week.

Burberry Prorsum

Even though Christopher Bailey’s show for Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2013 was supposed to be about “Corsets and Capes”, the focal point of the presentation were undoubtedly the trenchcoats, which the designer reinvented in n array of shiny, jewel-tones metallic colours. Paired with oversize cat-eye sunglasses, bags in transparent plastic and metallic silver heels, the trenchcoats wowed the audience, making their way into every fashionista’s most wanted list.

Aside from the thenchcoats, the pencil skirts, peplums, corsets and capes, jackets and super-short pants completed the collection.

Mulberry

Floral accents, leather and lots and lots of bags: the Mulberry Spring/Summer 2013 collection showed an edgy line-up of looks, with a strong air of femininity, toned down by the various leather pieces, from floor-length, wide-leg trousers, to skirts and tops, and floral coats and jackets, perfect for spring.

If you’re daring, try pairing a leather dress with a floral print jacket, just like in the Mulberry show, for an edgy-chic effect.

Roksanda Ilincic

With her latest signature collection, Roksanda Ilincic made it clear that femininity and sensuality don’t necessarily go hand in hand with showing skin.

Thus, Ilincic showed a collection of maxi dresses, tight calf-length skirts, blouses with long, breezy sleeves and wide-leg pants with fluid silhouettes.

The sleeves and collars in contrasting colours offered a dash of freshness to the line-up of looks, while the high heels paired with demeure outfits completed the air of toned-down sensuality of the show.
