LFW, SS13.

Like last week, I am dedicating this post to another of the SS13 fashion weeks: London. In recent years, heavy weight luxury brands such as Matthew Williamson and Burberry Prorsum have brought their shows back to London making it just as influential as New York, Milan and Paris. Like my NYFW post, I'm going to pick out a few of my LFW highlights:

The Burberry Prorsum finale - amazing metallic trench coats.

1.  Print happy:
LFW was a awash with all different prints and patterns. Erdem stuck to what he does best: florals, except he surprised the audience by choosing neon hues.Bouquets of pink and orange made for some real show stopping pieces. Over at Mulberry, Emma Hill went animalistic with a lizard print jacket and Del Rey bag. Matthew Williamson opted for an Aztec look to his collection with geometric patterns all over the dresses, jackets and trousers. The the usually whacky Jonathan Saunders toned it down with muted teardrops.

2. Burberry Prorsum:
My favourite brand, I HAD to feature it. There was a definite change in the air at Burberry this season. Christopher Bailey showed his playful side with an array of metallic trenches, one pieces, hot pants and shirts. The look was, according to Bailey, signifying 1940s 'British glamour', with short capes of pencil skirts and corsets. Although the colourful pieces may not be to everyone's taste, the muted pieces were truly beautiful.
Now roll on Milan fashion week where I can't wait for Emilio Pucci, Dolce&Gabbana and DSquared2!
