Hey guys back with Day Three of London Fashion Week, I have noticed there is a theme of blue running in the Designers collection the past couple of days. Not a colour I'm too keen on myself as I don't think its flattering for pale skin tones and darker hair. My favourite collections of the day were by, Preen by Thorton Bregazzi, Matthew Williamson, Temperley London, Topshop Unique, Jonathan Saunders and Mary Katrantzou.
Blue is the colour of the AW15 and Temperley London displays this beautifully, with their floral blue Embroidery pieces and their sparkly Embellishments. It was lovely to see Sophie Dahl model for this collection I remember watching her cute cooking program. I loved how Temperley London incorporated a wonderful Pussy Bow blouse in a formal black styled playsuit, the long scarves around the models necks gave off a sense of seventies as well. Although I wouldn't want such a thin scarf for AW15 I'm thinking about Temperley's display of that lovely thick burgundy scarf for the colder months.
What caught my eye about Bregazzi's collection were the beautiful Orange and Blue floral pieces, the colours contrast so well and look perfect with darker hair. I loved the camel coat and the intricate white floral embellishments on some of the dresses as well. But the floral won my heart in this collection.
Whilst being a Country girl at heart I fell in love with Topshop Unique's Country Chic collection. I watched it on the live stream and I favourited the following outfits in the below image. Botanical Prints, Pinafores layered over Jumpers, Brown Velvet Jumpsuits, lots of faux fur and Flares! There are still elements of the Seventies trend within this collection but its still very Topshop at heart.
Like I mentioned earlier, Blue is the Seasonal colour running throughout AW15 collections. Matthew Williamson's collection was so beautiful, I love the colour palette with the use of blues, rich pinks and reds and even a bit of yellow. I know I said previously I didn't like the fact yellow was trying to sneak its way into the AW15 trends but Williamson does this very discreetly and it works.
I've always kept a close eye on Katrantzou ever since I studied Surface Pattern for a year, her collections are always very unique. I like how she incorporated Khaki, Orange and Browns in this seasons collection, these are my favourite choices of 2015 so far. It is hard to explain the genius collection so lets just sit back and admire her work of art.
Probably the best 60s/70s inspired collection of this season at London Fashion Week, Saunders really has mastered the reinvention of the retro style. He has incorporated lots of Seventies colours, quite bright but not too intrusive and with those laced thigh high boots it really finishes off the outfits. I personally don't think I could pull off such wild colour choices but it seems to work on the models.
