London Fashion Week 2013

JW Anderson

I found that JW Anderson collection was really modern and original. Take for example the trash bag-textured varnished nylon trousers in the second look he showed with fur. Another thing I love in this collection is the luxurious sporty feel which I find very relevant for the time being. As a reference for you to see, I add the address of a favorite blogger of mine Ms. Stop it right now to have a look. Return back here though, so that you read the rest of this post....

Christopher Kane

Christopher Kane became the newest addition to the French luxury conglomerate, which is none other than PPR Group of Bernard Arnault, and most probably this explains why he showed the excessive number of 60-looks. I have to admit that until recently, I just couldn't really get the genius of Christopher Kane, as his unique vision and aesthetics are really far from my own. Lately though: I get him! Actually, I find his shows very refreshing and out of the ordinary, which both elements have made me to appreciate and almost love him as a designer. This time, I particularly loved the military looks- especially those trimmed with fur-, the velvet outfits with the beautiful detailing, like in the blue one pictured above, the particularly fragile and romantic rosettes of feathers that studded Jourdan Dunn's sweater-and-sheer-skirt set, a continuation of his appliquéd flowers from Spring 2012, and finally the brain print matched with a multi-panelled skirt. My forecast? It's like I already see photos of brains walking down the streets next season.

Peter Pilotto

OMG! What a collection! By the time I saw the first look of the show, this red matador-like jacket with the bold painterly embroidery, I knew this was going to be good. I liked almost every single piece out of the collection, with most favorites looks the ones pictured above. Maya Singer called the show ''A triumph!'' so there is nothing more to add on this.

Unique Topshop

The fourth show I particularly loved from London's Fashion Week until this point was the Topshop Unique. I believe they showed a more mature type of girl than previous seasons, less Brit and more international especially in the way clothes were styled together. My favorite looks were the sparkling pieces styled casually as day wear, which in my opinion gives sequins a new spin. There were some great coats as well, but hey... It's just a collage of my Top 4 looks here.

And...that's a wrap guys!
At least from my part!
So, what about you?
Do you have any favorite shows from LFW so far and which are these?
