Men’s – Incognito. Craig Green AW16

_ARC0559

Craig Green‘s “unwrapped” collection, which was presented few hours ago in London, is a good start to the autumn-winter 2016 season for men. The first looks were all about olive-green outerwear and khaki combats; then, the wardrobe of a Craig Green guy showed it’s real inner-self, which was previously obscured under layers, and layers of utilitarian-like textiles. The clothes, which were made of leather patches  transformed into poetic, voluminous jackets, airy tops and over-sized culottes – and all of that appeared to be tied up with white ropes. It’s interesting to see, how a young designer from London reinterprets menswear – and as you see, this collection is unusual not only because it lacks the “men clichés”, but it also represents Craig as a designer who can smartly push his creative vision.

Nottingham. Burberry SS14

Slide1-kopia

“Nottingham, in the U.K.’s Midlands, was once the center of the world’s lace production. Now, there’s a sleeping giant waiting for Christopher Bailey to give it a good poke!” as wrote the Style.com about this very, very good collection of Burberry for SS14. Indeed, the use of British lace in this collection was a right shot from Christopher Bailey- lets say goodbye to sporty jackets, and welcome new Burberry, that is all about feminity and glamour! First of all, Harry Styles of One Direction was there in the front row, so he of course stole all spotlight… but because I don’t like 1D, I more feel like to write about the collection… Kept in pastel colours of pink and blue, beautiful laces mixed with embroideries and geometrical prints brought lots of sex appeal to the collection, and at the same time made it wearable… The look were Edie Campbell wears this blue pastel coat, a white lace dress and blue panties looked adorable! That was definitely one of the strongest collections of the season!

LFW: Tommy Time!

20130918-071420 AM.jpg

Here are my favourite photographs taken by Tommy Ton during London Fashion Week! One thing is sure- the Celine pre-fall 2013 collection was most worn. Christina Cantanera went on full splendour and even wore one whole look from Celine AW13 collection with all these adorable blue/white/red checks! Givenchy was there as always, but what I loved most was… yeah, the Acne sweatshirts, but also the Giles X Sibling knitted hat that model Marie Poviesan wore! It looked so cool! Maybe the LFW street style wasn’t so spectacular as NYFW, but still it was good.

Pearls. Simone Rocha SS14

20130917-092722 PM.jpg
The new collection from London’s hottest new talents, Simone Rocha, is a remastered Coco Chanel look mixed with Film Noir aesthetics and Marilyn Monroe girlie looks- in other words, the element that was everywhere at Rocha’s SS14 collection? Pearls. Pearls everywhere! On dresses, trousers pockets, bags, shoes… Simone Rocha sewed them even on her classical dress with a lace ruffle! This is possibly the strongest collection of John Rocha’s daughter to date with it’s mature touches like elegant mini evening dresses with pearl collars and fantastic tomboy shoes… But it still was very Rocha- not too girlie and not too sophisticated- in other words, super comfortable and easy to wear!
