Another spectacular day of fashion at Somerset House; highlights today were fractural prints, volume, leather+lace, beautiful cutwork and knits.
One of my absolute faves (as per usual) Erdem delighted AGAIN with his own very personal brand of English eccentricity. An English woodland in the medium of modern technology - shattered prints exploded onto the catwalk in the form of voluminous and structured pieces. Whether it was deep tones of peacock colours worked into body shaping mini dresses or pastel lace ruffled maxis; silk spliced together with butterfly and swallow printed fabric or a shearling trimmed camel trench, this collection was set to amaze with every step that the models took in their heavy duty hiking boots. Complete A/W perfection!
More autumn theme from Christopher Kane too, with his impressive mix of floral embroidery in combination with leather which was then worked into sultry lace. Taking and expanding on 'underwear as outerwear' Kane showed some really showstopping pieces and a great sense of intricate workmanship.
Autumn would be nothing without snuggling up in some fashion foward knits and luckily we have Pringle to show us the way. Chunky or sleek, Pringle's pieces were paraded down the catwalk in colours of grey, nude and monotones; with mini dresses, leather pleated gladiator-style skirts and bold knit shoulders this show was most definitely sexy!
The best of the rest from Day 4...
Marios Schwab - nude embellished dungaree dress, pleated corsetry, cropped architectural jackets and embellished crop waistcoats layered over sweeping maxi dresses. How very seductive.
