D.I.Y LFW Recap #2

Its almost been a week since the end of London Fashion Week and on that note i’m going to end with the second part of my LFW style recap. It features the designs from Roksanda, David Koma, Antonio Berardi and Peter Pilotto.  If you happen to have missed the first part of my LFW recap, check it “HERE“. Like before, play the music to enjoy the complete LFW runway experience.

1.) Roksanda

All i see are colours and shapes – wearable abstract art.

I love the bold and vibrant colours, especially in the well tailored shorts and trousers. Similar to that of most shows, this collection features matching sandals. Sandals, Flats and Sneakers, this ongoing trend has made spotting high heels within a collection feel out of place.

The collection transformed from bold solid colours into more graphic (still bold) prints. I love the printed coords and strapless top as well as the sheer organza black dress with the blue and red scribbles. I actually like most of the pieces with these “scribbles”, its result on the sheer organza was marvellous.

2.) Peter Pilotto

Peter Pilotto’s clothing have always been characterised by shapes and intricate patterns. With this collection, they took a turn into trying new approaches for embellishment.

I felt that this collection had a psychedelic 60s vibe from the colours to the clothes itself – colourful tees and bell bottoms. I like the youthfulness and flirty aspect of the dresses yet they have this tough feel – like armour. The high neck of the dresses as to breastplates as well as the gladiator sandals. More sandals again during this show.

3.) David Koma

Staying true to his aesthetic, this Spring/Summer collection makes the most of the female form with cut outs in all the right places, mixing textures like sheer and leather all while retaining a sense of fun. I love the sexy sheer panelling, asymmetric cuts and clean lines.

Catering to the different kinds of women, the chic separates in atomic white sway towards the more minimalist, yet still highly structured – the blazers and shorts are definitely up my alley. At the end of the scale those who like a little more embellished and striking pieces will be more persuaded towards the cyclical skirted dresses, decorated in a sheath of glistening crystals.

4.) Antonio Berardi

After seeing this look from his 2014 pre-fall line, my love for Antonio Berardi was certified and i was happy his SS15 collection did not disappoint

Ever seen a collection and scream! Okay, not scream but fall completely in love . That was me and Antonio Berardi today. This collection was everything and more. The tailored pants and jackets to match, the prints of the jacket, the organza –  I have come to realise that i really like organza.

He combined the sharp and tight precision cuts we see from him during the colder season and married them with the more ethereal notes he presents for summer.  Asian-inspired sliced shifts and sheer organza pantsuits, fluttering cape-like blouses and the sack-back drama of gowns in floor-length metallic jacquard.

Just incase you missed this look, i thought i’d bring it back.

The gradation of the black into grey then sheer, simply amazing. I especially love this effect on the top of the blazer. There is just something i really like about this piece.

What do you think? Any favourites?
