So fashion week has been and gone once again and once again I was not there. I am determined to go one season, even if for just a day.
I have to say though, London Fashion Week SS14 just hasn't gripped me as much as usual. I usually drool over so many but when I was looking through the collections this year, I just wasn't feeling it.
Obviously, there are some that I've absolutely loved but even with collections I've liked, I've still not liked the entire thing. Which makes me sad? Did anyone else get the same vibe from this LFW?

Like I said, I did like a good handful of the shows so here they are...

J. JS Lee

Jasper Conran



David Koma


House of Holland

Burberry Prorsum

Temperley London

Totally drooling over this entire collection

Matthew Williamson

Michael van der Ham

Tom Ford

I think overall my favourite collection was definitely Temperley London. With Jasper Conran and Tom Ford being close runners up. The Tom Ford collection, along with the models, was just FIERCE.
I really like the makeup that's been on the majority of the catwalks. It's been very soft and simple and a lot have gone for a bold, bright lip or kept to the minimal theme with nudes.
The hair is just something I can't get my head around. So many of the shows had their models done with the slicked back/wet look hair, very reminiscent of 90's grunge and I do no like it. The greasy side fringe in the Mulberry show was awful! The full fringe seems to be vanishing for the upcoming season which sucks for me... heh! I don't think I'll be getting rid for some time though.

As for the upcoming season's colours... I was surprised at how much black and dark colours there were, although I very much like it. I'm glad monochrome is still going strong. There also seems to be a lot of blue hues and nude/camel colours flittering around.

Finally, I'm so happy about the collar being prominent in so many collections. Peter Pan collars and collared shirts were everywhere not too long ago. I feel they've died down a bit this year so far but some of these collections have featured some really pretty ones and I'm really excited to see it filtered down to the high street. Some great examples in the J. JS Lee and Jasper Conran shows and Simone Rocha did too!

So there's my London Fashion Week picks! Hoping February is more to my taste for AW14. I do usually prefer that season..!


  1. Great post!! I love that lavender Burberry dress/coat! :D
    I just found your lovely blog and am now following :}

  2. Most of your picks would be on my list too, but I'm afraid I can't share your love of Ashish! Surprisingly I don't think House of Holland would make my list this year either, I'm just not into enough of the collection to give it an overall thumbs up.
