As promised, here is another weekly installment of all the happenings that, well, happened at London Fashion Week.
I wore a faux leather pleated skirt from Primark (for all you American’s that may never have heard of this shop, it’s ridiculously cheap and sometimes you can find some real gems), my crop top and cropped shoulder padded jacket are both from New Look, and boots from ASOS. I wore these boots with every outfit at London Fashion Week, they’re life savers!
Like in my last post, I thought I’d keep it short and sweet and tell you about two designers that I fell in love with instead of bombarding you with hundreds and thousands of names, of which you might recall one tomorrow. I’ve handpicked these designers so you know that they’re tip top quality! At least, I think my taste is that good…
Let’s start with Phoebe Coleman.
I thought I’d introduce her to you by first putting her collection in her own words, “I am hugely influenced by illustrations found on Ancient Greek pots and though I don’t have any, by tattoos. My jewellery takes on the impression of a pencil or pen, a thin line which is simple and pure, yet on closer inspection, highly detailed and textured. You can totally see what she means by her pieces taking on the impression of a pencil or a pen, because everything was so delicate and radiated femininity. I really think her jewellery is for women who appreciate beauty in its most simplest form. Everything is very romantic I feel, and images of perfectly polished hands holding tea in gorgeous china come to mind. Somewhere in France on a balcony probably. Because the pieces are so simple yet so breath-taking it makes them versatile and timeless. Perfect additions to your jewellery collection.
And last, but oh so certainly not least, Maria Francesca Pepe.
I fell for Maria Francesca Pepe’s pieces in September at Fashion Week so I was so glad to see that she was back and better than ever.
It’s bold, sharp but romantic. All pieces are very chic and feminine but have a darker side to them which makes them perfect for adding edge to any look.
Art movements, femme fatale, disco 70s, and pop culture have heavily influenced her designs which is clear to see in the collaborations she’s done with Urban Outfitters (US and UK), Topshop, Roksanda Ilincic, Amanda Wakeley, Lady Gaga by Nicola Formichetti and Rihanna by Mel Ottenberg. A wonderful list of high end brands, celebrity stylists, and popular high street brands don’t you think?!
With prices ranging from £44 to to £716, I think it’s fair to say that she caters to all tastes.
