London Fashion Week Round-Up: DAY THREE.



London Fashion Week A/W 2009.

DAY THREE: Sunday 22nd February 2009.

Today saw designers such as Betty Jackson, Nicole Farhi, Christopher Kane, Richard Nicoll, Jaeger, PPQ, Twenty8Twelve and Aquascutum showcase their A/W collections…. Below are some of my highlights. Again, as you will see, the majority of designers are keeping their collections ‘safe’, to a minimal light (classic) colour palette, the direct response to the ‘dark’ cloud of the recession; the collections are wearable, during any season, and look forward to femininity.

Christopher gives us a very sobre, dark, A/W collection. The majority of the collection is definitely eveningwear. Lots of sheer organza in a simple mix of creams, black and the odd stripey splash of metallic green/pink. A lovely timeless collection that endeavours to overcome the effects of the recession by cleverly keeping things classic, with Kane’s signature edge, perfect wardrobe staples!

Richard Nicoll looks fast forward to SPRING for his A/W 09 collection. The show focussed on creams, beige, blushed pink and grey for a sophisticated collection that, again, could be worn in any season. Romantic tops and blouses meet high waisted smart tailoring. The edge is brought back to forefront with ‘upside down’ dresses, as seen in the photo above.

I absolutely loved the Betty Jackson show. Very feminine, flattering shapes are cast throughout the collection, with particular emphasis on a cocoon style being added to skirts and trousers alike. The collection looks back at by gone era’s of the 50s with soft volume and a pastel palette, while the print and texture harps back at the 80s. With 25 years at LFW under her belt, Betty Jackson clearly just gets better and better with age.

Danielle Scutt, like Ann-Sofie Back, looks forward to Hallowe’en and to the Vampires and Ghouls that roam the universe for her Gothic Chic A/W collection. The collection highly focusses on black and red with the odd zebra stripe of white. Velvet and PVC mix with cotton Jersey for a truly haunting connoction. I really liked the T-Shirt dresses but the rest of the collection is a bit humour filled, proving to everyone that we must not be so serious about the Credit Crunch – AGAIN! I look forward to seeing her next TOPSHOP collaboration however.
