London Fashion Week: a look to the catwalk

London Fashion Week is started and many ideas for S/S 2014 arrived from british catwalks. Different visions of woman have been proposed: L’Wren Scott was inspired by a trip to Tokyo six years ago. She appreciated “the ritualistic approach to clothes of Japanese women”. The sensual side of the East is revisited in a modern key, a modern Geisha with fitted dress, pencil skirts, tight trousers.

Emilia Wickstead said about her collection: “This whole collection was about a girl who just gets out of bed, throws her hair back, doesn’t have much make-up on and looks beautiful”.
A soft collection, perfect for throwing into a suitcase for travelling, something not too ladylike and traditional, a modern key of Fifty style dresses.

A fresh and easy collection for Margaret Howell. High-waisted belted shorts, the short sleeved shirting, some featuring a V-necked collar, others cropped at the waist, strapless bodiced dresses, looks were topped off with straw trilbies and brown flat leather sandals. 
A unpretentious collection, but in its simplicity catches the eye

It was the last collection for Emma Hill like creative director of Mulberry and Cara Delevingne opened the show. The colour palettes collection varies in different shades of blue, red and white. Textures varied from leather shirts to silky pyjama trousers via sequins and velvet calf. Print was emblazoned in varying sizes across jacquard coats to silk dresses to the envelope clutch.  A beautiful farewell from Emma.

 All the best bits of Richard Nicoll were there:  the lightness of texture and touch in the form of a specially woven houndstooth organza polyester jacquard, the tomboyish masculinity. The result is a collection with soft layers, easy sleeveless coats, clean cotton piqué dresses, pretty tiered dresses with spaghetti straps in sumptuous bubblegum pink, and boyish cotton knits and great boyfriend jackets. Richard Nicholl said :”I’m feeling very relaxed. I wanted the collection to have a sense of ease and be really believable.”. And i can say he has achieved his goal
