Yes, London is indeed infamous for its street fashion styles, nevertheless, the city is alive with polished and romantic trends this season.
Visiting London for Fashion
Rough and smooth styles of leather have made their way to the top, and other influences include rope, gardens, and nature – which give us wispy dresses, floral prints, and traditional embroideries. Sensuous components include sheers, lace, low cuts, and slits; and interesting sightings included Vivienne Westwood’s runway models sporting “yes” badges in reference to Scotland’s independence. If you are inspired to be a part of the fashion week at the beginning of 2015, be sure to book your show tickets, flights, and accommodations in hotels in London Victoria like Astors Hotel Victoria, to get the best deals. Here is a roundup of the best trendsetters.
“Insects of Britain” were the quotes on the walls, as Burberry showcased its collection at a massive greenhouse built at Kensington Gardens, especially for the event. The greenhouse is still on display, and if you stop over in London, be sure to visit it, also consider staying at boutique hotels in London Victoria, when you fly down. Colorful and light dresses complete with abstract prints graced the runway. British supermodels like Suki Waterhouse and Jordan Dunn floated down the runway in impressive pieces, which were quickly sold out.
It takes more than a steady hand and sheer luck to assemble and create contrasting elements like Saunders added to his collection. The end result was sharp and chiseled beauty in every piece. His collarless shirts, Lurex flashes, classic menswear patterned trousers, kimono-belted double jackets, organza ruffle shirts, jackets, and intriguing leather jackets stole the show over and again. The palette consisted of shades of brown, olive green, and a series of blues. He made combinations that would otherwise never work seem perfect. They were also plenty of Matisse-ish leaf cut-outs that featured in many pieces.
Celebrities like singer Nicole Scherzinger sat in the front row seats of honor owing to the fact that David Bailey’s eccentric shots of the breathtaking former model from his book, Chasing Shadows, were the primary starting point for Matthew Williamson’s collection. His styles saw exotic glamour in the form of tropical Balinese and ikat prints patterns in fabrics ranging from cotton to silks, transporting the audience to golden summer.
A combination of glam and rock’n’roll was the theme behind Ford’s collection. Model slid down the runway in shaggy dark hair and dark smoky eyes – sheer black panels, high thigh-high, black stockings, and 3D appliqués were the style of the hour. Ford exploited the same rugged and dark appeal that he used while he was with Gucci. Exaggerated flares, dark sequins, and shimmer made the crowd want more… Ford takes up the stage again early in 2015 if you want to witness his collection be sure to book your stay at boutique hotels in London Victoria, to get the best experience.
