London Fashion Week is over for another season. The Autumn/Winter 2013 collections have been premiered in London over the last 5 days and to be honest, I usually prefer the A/W collections but this time they haven't "grabbed" me as much. Don't get me wrong, the collections I've loved, I have really loved but it was as though I was expecting something spectacular and there wasn't really anything away from the norm, with a couple of exceptions.
However, with that being said, I have a rather long list of my favourites that I tried really hard to whittle down so let's get one with it!

Felder Felder

House of Holland


Orla Kiely

Julien Macdonald

David Koma

Temperley London

Topshop Unique

Burberry Prorsum


So what to expect come Autumn/Winter this year... the usually camel, tan, black and oxblood colours are obviously going to be sticking around. As it's getting towards the festive season, it's not shock sequins and metallics are about.
It also looks like we can expect a lot of leather (and wipe clean PVC by the looks of Topshop) which I got to be honest, I love! I think adding a piece of (faux!) leather can really make an outfit stand out.
I was surprised with the amount of bright colour in a few collections but absolute love it! Especially as they all seemed to incorporate 60's styling. I particularly loved Orla Kiely's collection. So chic, sophisticated and glamorous.
I cannot even being to explain how much I adore the entirety of the Burberry Prorsum collection. One day I will be rich enough to buy it all. If you didn't get to watch the live streaming of it then you should watch it here. I'm not a fan of leopard print usually but Christopher Bailey mixed it into the collection and it works really well and is a good update to the infamous trench coat. The heart print details are so cute as well!
And of course my beloved Henry Holland... How can I not mention House of Holland. I love how they are afraid to stand out and be different. I especially love the little martini glass prints.

As for make up on the catwalks, a huge bulk of it was all very natural and neutral colours. It seemed like the models were made up to look like they were barely wearing any. Lips and nails were often in nudes, cheekbones were high (obviously!), they was lots of contouring going on and brows were left natural. Maybe taking a bit of inspiration from the lovely Cara Delevigne, who had an incredibly busy fashion week popping up in every other collection!
