Street style from the final day of LFW S/S15.
Tag : Fiasco
Fusing together sportswear and street style with luxe fabrics, Christopher Raeburn’s SS15 offering left us all breathless with it’s simple beauty. Raeburn just has this absolute air about him that seems to be such effortless chic – even when it’s sports style wear. It seemed sheer, lightweight and futuristic – but still within the Raeburn style of practical. Standout colours in the spectrum used were navy, grey and our personal fave – baby pink. Perfect. See what we mean about effortless luxe?
Bora Aksu brought us romanticism for winter and next spring is no exception. Ruffles in ivory, baby blue and pale pink joyfully danced down the catwalk with a vintage flourish. The mix of delicate sheer material and lace paired with heavy crochet brought this collection out of fantasy and into practical wearable pieces to adorn ourselves with throughout the transitional weather.
The collection showcased a minimalist nineties look in a palette of monochrome and dove greys. Nineties silhouettes reigned supreme with long line waistcoats, asymmetrical cuts and graphic prints, seemingly inspired by current street wear and the effortless Stockholm aesthetic we lust over and long for.
Marking one of Friday’s standout hair looks came from the Bumble & Bumble team at Eudon Choi. With a low pony tail and a tiny amount of texture, came this beautiful yet slightly roughened bun, with a delicate stencil work chalk spray inner detail.
With this season’s catwalk marking a mammoth 150 years of heritage brand Daks, it was obvious it was to be a show stopper. The Royal Opera House provided the setting for this opulent runway and delicate collection, and it was a captivating experience from the minute it began.
Being the new girl on the block at LFW is never easy, and to open this years Spring Summer season Jackie JS Lee created a modern, luxe tailored range. Boxy, shaped pieces are Jackie’s forte, but this season she came into her own, having mixed her traditional structured oversized squared shape with pleated, more tailored feminine skirts and dipped hemlines.
Launching for Autumn Winter 2014 are two distinct new ranges from Eastpak: the vintage-inspired Authentic Lifelike and the Authentic Re-Check collections.
For SS15 Casely-Hayford focuses on duality in various aspects of their collection. They’ve aimed to juxtapose painterly with graphic, formal with relaxed and business with punk on a canvas of “culturally significant garments that are defined by their normality”.
Shirts with cartoonish huge eyes and scary cats with slogans stating “acid club” created a street style attitude to the collection.
The show starts with Rhythms Of The City, a Brazilian percussion group, silently filing out into the show space at the Old Sorting Office barefoot with their instruments. They burst out loud and spirited samba beats for a minute, setting the lively atmosphere, before the first model makes an appearance.
The fashion of the 90’s doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon nor does the obsession with black. Buttoned up shirts were worn with matching knee length shorts and, if not in black or monochrome, were in bold red, primary green or deep purple.
