Three of England’s most popular models – Cara, Georgia May and Suki are April’s covergirls for the British Vogue.  These three, though each unique, are the perfect representations of the 60’s throwback vibe that’s trending right now.  Wrapped in sherbet tones and spring colours, there is lots of references to some amazing retro style icons like Bardot, Birkin, and other British models from that era like Pattie Boyd.  The styling in this edit is sophisticated  yet still playful, and the three of them look beautiful together.

Both these shoots make me want to bite my fist until I bleed a little. Such naughty wonderment! Georgia May Jagger stars in a shoot so subtly filthy that, if you spend time with it, you realize it’s spectacularly filthy. Von Unwerth also shoots two leggy crimson-haired models in scarlet stockings for Vogue Italia. So much stunning!

Georgia May Jagger has come into her own as a model over the last year, moving past the intial schitck of her being the daughter of Mick Jagger and the incompariably beautiful model Jerry Hall to be a force all her own.  With her sensual gaze and signature gap, she’s an instantly recognizable face appearing in numerous magazines, ads, and runways, bringing a perfect combination of her mother’s smouldering and her father’s lazy hipped sexiness.

Prada Spring 2015

The biggest news out of Milan Fashion Week and in the fashion world in general is the return of Gemma Ward, who ruled the runways and magazine covers in the mid 2000’s and hasn’t done any modeling work for the past 8 years.  She returned to where she launched her career on the Prada runway, opening this season’s show.   Gemma’s appearance plus Lara Stone closing the show plus the return to some classic Prada designs made this a show to remember

Alberta Ferretti Spring 2015

After the too-precious looks during NYFW, seeing how the Italians do romantic and feminine is a relief.  These are beautifully executed, flowly, pretty gowns that still look classy and mature.  The denim blue, the western style vests and the detailing makes this collection unique and interesting.   I don’t know about the boy shorts under the sheer dresses though.

Fendi Spring 2015

Fendi is basically a vegan’s nightmare.  So much leather.  So much fur.  Not to mention some subtle cultural appropriation.   If you’re able to look past that, there are some beautiful graphics and genius acts of design.  Karl Lagerfeld is a master of recreating silhouettes, which is amply demonstrated here.

DSquared2 Spring 2015

This collection from the Canadian twins Dean and Dan Catten didn’t have the panache of their past collections, but there are some great trends here.  I love the distressed, big denim with the low waist lines and crop tops. and all the primary colors for Spring.

LFW Spring 2015 – Marchesa, Vivienne Westwood, Tom Ford, Giles

September 15th, 2014|Categories: Fashion Designers, Fashion Models, Runway|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Four big names in London fashion have shown some beautiful collections over the first 2 days of London Fashion Week. These are pieces for vastly varied styles – from the floral paradise of Marchesa, the skewered tailoring of Vivienne Westwood’s Red Label, the slinky, long sexiness of Tom Ford and the print magic of Giles.

Marchesa Spring 2015
Fake flowers can be a tricky trim on clothing. Even the highest quality of cloth flowers can look tacky. This Marchesa collection may have over done it on a few gowns, but the overall use of vines and blossoms make this a very Spring-y collection.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring 2015
When she goes with her strengths – Victorian tailoring skewered in a deliciously punk way – Vivienne Westwood shines. Making it look like a 3 year old drew on all the models faces, however, is a distraction from the great pieces on the runway.

Tom Ford Spring 2015
You can always depend on Tom Ford for some seriously sexy pieces and this collection does not disappoint. Cut outs, sheer, pretty pasties, these are pieces for the bold.

Giles Spring 2015
You can tell that Giles Deacon, the designer behind the Giles label, is currently dating and dressing Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie. This is a collection full of bold animal print and long, long lines. His greatest strength, though, still lies in the cut out patterns in his dresses. They are unique and eye catching while still being delicate and pretty.
