LONDON FASHION WEEK SS15 - DAY 2
Vintage dress / Zara flats / Celine bag / Kreepsville 666 hair bow*/ Forever21 bracelet / & Other Stories rings
Many photographers and fashion week go-ers on the day were asking me who made this dress and I replied with (the somewhat infuriating), "It's vintage!" Unfortunately I don't know the brand but it's one of my all time favourite vintage pieces in my collection. Firstly I find the dress super flattering as it's fitted throughout the body and flares out with plenty of material in the skirt. Secondly, the print is absolutely stunning and proved to be pretty eye-catching too. Finally, the neckline detail. Y'all know how much I love a good collar. My first show of the day didn't start till 2pm so I spent some time people watching at Somerset House. I met one of my favourite bloggers, Alice Zielasko of Alice Point, I remember following her style since I was in Australia and her blog actually inspired me to start my own. Loved her all white ensemble and I'm seriously coveting that Chanel necklace. Soon after, Daisy Lowe walked past me in hands down my favourite LFW outfit this season, a burgundy and navy collared top paired with a crochet pencil skirt, amazing!
At 2.15pm I sat and watched the Ethologie show and having really loved designer Jasper Garvida's previous collections I was looking forward to see what was in store for SS15. The latest collection is called Gradiva and showcased plenty of rocker chic attitude with structured silhouettes in denim, khaki, and metallics, each model complete with a pitch black, smoked out cat eye, and messy teased hair and faux hawks.
Promptly after the show ended, it was time for Basharatyan V, which started with two girls in black suits walking out to stand on either side of the end of the catwalk, hats stilted down and a cup of tea in their hands, which they sipped at intervals to leave red stains on the china. They proceeded to overlook the whole show as the models displayed sleek and tailored, almost menswear inspired designs made fun with sequins, pops of bright red and flattering feminine cuts. It's the ultimate business chic turned party girl look.
And that's a wrap on Day 2! My third and final day at London Fashion Week will be up next.
