It was clear that Meadham Kirchoff had used inspiration from the 1980’s with the lilac boucle fabric, gold buttons and other candy coloured tweed. The shapes were oversized, and it had a ‘I’m-dressing-up-in-my-Mum’s-clothes’ kind of feel to it.
Anya Hindmarch’s concept, on the otherhand, was somewhat more ‘everyday’ in comparison. Despite the fact that she was able to create a sense of excitement, regardless of the fact that her catwalk was made to look like it was based in a supermarket. It meant that everyone’s boring everyday shopping list turned into a wish list of tote bags and and clutches - and a dream for a luxury life. Moreover, the show also marked the launch of her scarf collection - of which contained lots of smiling faces in print designs and were contrast to white dresses as a blank canvas.
What I particularly loved about his latest collection was his ability to cater for all ages. The youngsters will go crazy for the laser cut gold fox jacket, whilst the older woman would love the longer styles and higher boots, as well as the skirt suits and pullovers.
And that, ladies and gents, is my final show round-up for London Fashion Week!
Lots of love,
