Fashion Over Reason: LFW FW14 - III

Saturday, February 22, 2014


Fashion never sleeps, therefore neither do it! Which is precisely why you're probably surprised to see a new post on a Saturday. Seeing as Milan is in full swing, we needed to finalize our London conversations. Here are the final collections from the British capital I deemed worthy to discuss...

See part I
See part II

Christopher Kane

Christopher Kane is such a texture master. His collections are always surprising and have an innate cool to them. Hi shows also always have an interesting duality and this time was no exception: they're both really dressy and awesomely informal; the pieces look extremely luxurious, yet have a casual energy; there was both a heavy and light feel to the whole thing. That folded layered chiffon dress is divine, just watching it move was mesmerizing.

Erdem is all about elegance, femininity, refinement. For fall, he went dark, with subtle baroque influences, regal brocades and laces, bejeweled appliqués. It was all pretty, pretty, pretty.

Simone Rocha

This is a designer who's made major waves on the scene in a very short period of time. For fall 2014, Simone Rocha seemed to have imagined the convergence between victorian exuberance and the world of Malcolm McLaren. The results were pretty fantastic.

Tom Ford

The maestro of sexiness himself took his buoyancy down a few notches, but that's not to say there was any missing sensuality to his collection. It was like a 60's american girl parade: cool native-inspired mini dress tunics, popping animal prints, fancy cowboy boots. But most importantly, the looks were streamlined, simple, cool and rich. Plus, not pictured here, there was a nod to the king of hip-hop, Mr. Jay Z himself, with sparkly sports jersey shifts.

Whistles is considered high street. I consider it like, high, high street. This is no Topshop or Zara -- not only in terms of price tag, which is certainly a cut above, but the clothes themselves are too (pun intended). Modern girls are going to be all over this collection and they went deep on one of the biggest trends I've examined to have come out of this fashion month thus far: that cubic print was done in soft shades of sea foam green, lilac, aqua blue, grey and chunky oversized knits that you want to live in once it gets cold.

Antonio Berrardi

Sexy shapes, sexy colors, sexy boots. Some of the pieces even had a little bit of a Balmain vibe to them... I'll bet those will become a sensation!
