London Fashion Week Mini-Review

Here's my lil' London Fashion Week rundown. Sorry it's so late! School. has. been. CRAZYYY. I forgot what sleep is. Anyway.

I thought Christopher Kane’s collection was interesting. It had some crazy prints.  One review called it “Princess Margaret on Acid”, which is exactly what it is.  I also liked the styling: the shoes were really different and cool, but the models walked strangely in them.
I really enjoyed the Sass & Bide show;  it was somethin' different.  I don’t know what to think about those strange bird’s nest neck pieces..they were weird buttt kinda cool.  Overall it was organic with bold prints and interesting accoutrements.  Even if it is not to everyone’s taste, at least it was interesting.
The Henry Holland collection was a bit childish and.. sort of so ugly that it was good sometimes. I liked the Pastel leaf prints and shiny foil-y skirts.  It seems like Henry Holland took his cue from Marc Jacobs with the seventies vibe going on.

Betty Jackson began rich textures with simple silhouettes that suggested the 1940s.  The collection then broke into more contemporary, light grunge-y feeling pieces, and then back into tailoring and textures with some bright splashy prints thrown in.  Somehow it all came together in an enjoyable show, and it seemed cohesive despite the variety.
 I was not all too impressed by the Acne collection.  I found it to be a bit awkward and boring.  The plain silhouettes did not excite me and the strange high wasted short shorts just confused me.  I thought that they looked like old fashioned diapers.  The collection looked like it was trying for something but I am not sure what. wompp.

Vivienne Westwood usually never disappoints me; she is MY FAVorite designer.  This season her clothing was politically charged as usual...  She always uses beautiful fabrics the random face paint was a bit distractingg.

Okayyyy back to homework. But first: what did you think of the London fashion shows this season?
