London Fashion Week S/S 2013

London calling. It's been a marvellous Summer for Blighty's glorious capital, Olympics and all. However, this week, in London, it was time to focus on next Summer, more specifically what you will be wearing next Summer-London fashion week. The second city to host  fashion week, London has a legacy in exciting, vibrant designs with creativity to boot. So, readers, I give you my top 5 LFW S/S 2013 collections.....

Matthew Williamson


 Emerald, sky blue, vivid orange, fuchsia, dusky pink-an explosion of colour. With this collection Williamson dictates that the future is bright, well next season anyway. I quite literally struggled to pick seven outfits for the picture! The signature Williamson girl, playful, vibrant, vivacious, and worldly is still in the collection but the glamorous bohemian vibe has had a restoration, incorporating graphic, digital prints and structured blazers to the aesthetic. Embellishment has never looked so sophisticated yet fun!

Holly Fulton

I have followed Holly Fulton since I first saw her exquisite, art deco jewellery designs in Elle a few years ago. Now Ms Fulton has her very own stand alone show, and the girl wearing this collection certainly is looking at the world through rose-tinted spectacles. Post show Fulton said 'I went to LA for the first time earlier this year and I was really struck by the saccharine optimism that permeates the place'. Think Fulton's take on the American dream, coloured in pastels, adorned in rose prints, and, naturally, the art deco touch that Fulton is oh so good at.


Mary Kantrantzou


Expectations were high, and a clean canvas of white, breezy and loose designs has allowed Katranzou to put her stamp (quite literally) on her S/S 2013 collection. Graphic prints, trapeze dresses, a new take on the maxi, Mary Kantranzou is going global. The question isn't are you daring enough to wear a printed trouser suit. The question is are you daring to wear a printed trouser suit minus shirt? (Luckily Jason Wu has some great ones to choose from).

Temperley London


Temperley London made me want to be a tad more ladylike. 'Return to elegance' took note from the 50's. Full skirts, embroidery, pastel blue and wide brimmed hats may seem a little to frivolous, but boy is it fun. Except the label is clever. Ladylike designs get a modern update with Chiffon panelling, and sheer blouses add a touch of sexy to the dainty girl. Go on, you know you want to be a good girl.


Giles


It's time to get mythical with Giles. Pegasus goes playful on power suits. Not your kind of thing? Try a plain blouse with the printed skirt or black cigarette pants with the tailored jacked. Who thought Greek mythology could be so versatile for the office?
 Note: Very Marc Jacobs, 60's style collared top and well, um, forgotten trousers. Maybe not one for the street, but feel free to stomp to the beach Giles style.


What was your favourite collection?

London did not disappoint. Next up, Milan. I can already smell the luxury leather in the air.
So, until next time, buona giornata!
