Notes from London Fashion Week

Notes from London Fashion Week

Maximalist fashion is here to stay

One of the key notes to take away from the first few days at London Fashion Week this February is that maximalist fashion is here to stay.

Minimalist fashion has taken a step out of the limelight and its place we see lots of colour, jewelled accents and clever layering.

Alice Archer

Alice Archer’s love affair with florals shows no signs of slowing down and when you find something that works so beautifully, why chance it.

Her inspiration for this upcoming winter collection is the British countryside and the scenery and flowers she encounters during her walks.

Long, flowing, hand-embroidered dresses in gorgeous bright silk fabrics took center stage along with an exquisite dreamy cape.

Different pieces were also layered with Swiss-dot tulle and shoes and other accessories featured jewel accents. Inspiring, captivating and beautiful are the keywords here.






Jasper Conran

I truly believe this was one of the designer’s best collections yet. The different colour combinations were phenomenal- deep navy blue paired with purples, bright yellows the colour of sunshine paired with bright, fiery orange.

It was almost like looking at an artist’s palette.

Long pleated skirts were paired with loose fitting utilitarian anoraks and coloured trainers.

A navy blue cashmere affair opened the show and there were some lovely loose fitting suits in both white and colour options It felt wonderful seeing the models swishing down the runway almost like a rainbow.






Markus Lupfer

At Markus Lupfer, the palette was darker but by no means less interesting. A truly interesting tartan print was created for this collection that was fashioned into dresses, trousers and coats.

A look featuring a floral jacquard shiny suit and coat combo was one of the highlights followed by the perfectly crafted styling of the overall looks. There were ribbon-tied fur heels and shiny jewelled highlights each place you looked including on the models’ hair.

There were large fur bags and cuffs, large jewelled earrings - all the usual eclectic touches the designer is renowned for were present.

An enchanting effect.
