London Fashion Week is always such a feast for the eyes. The eccentricity and devil-may-care attitude of the shows sets them apart from the other cities and has inspired me to add some funky and sparkly pieces to my wardrobe. Even though it stands alone among my selections, I love the Ace of Spades tunic by Jasper Conran. It’s witty, fun and has a touch of pizazz – little bit of that je ne sais quoi, if you will. I can’t wait to add a piece or two like this to my spring wardrobe.
Out of all the London Fashion Week collections, Sass & Bide resonated with me most. I loved the long lines and outlandish disco sparkles. The perfect balance of edgy and feminine was achieved with structured tops that featured pointed shoulders, origami folds and cinched or belted waists. The bottoms were a mix of masculine and feminine, but the ones I loved most were the long, rippling skirts and dresses. The juxtaposition of hard lines + flowing chiffon just gets me. Did you have any favorites from the London collections? I’d love to hear from you in the comments or on Twitter or Facebook!
