After days of work, without phone line and internet connection, I can finally take a break and take care of my blog. Is ended last February 19th the London Fashion Week F/W 2013-14 and, even if some fashion shows that I couldn't wait to see have disappointed me a little, some of other show that crossed the catwalks of London were really interesting.
Passing by Temperly London and Moschino Cheap and Chic, these are, in my opinion, the best collections seen in LFW 2013.
ALICE BY TEMPERLY
A tribute to romance. This could be the key to the collection made of laces, silk and chiffon, hourglass, stright and flared shapes and played on a pallet of colors that go from white to red, from powder pink to black. Elegant and feminine, dedicated to sophisticated women.
Fantasy and dreamlike inspiration for this collection signed by Fydor Golan. Among silk, organza, pvc, satin, leather and tulle, alternate clothes with hourglass shapes and animated by little touches of color.
With this collection Scott gives her personal tribute to the artworks of Gustav Klimt. Soft coats enriched by gold inserts, dresses studded by little decorations that look like a living reproduction of Klimt's works. Elegant and ladylike this collection found the perfect balance of love for old and eye focused on contemporary.
MOSCHINO CHEAP AND CHIC
The young style that always has been the trademark of the brand is more serious and adult, without losing the verve that characterizes it. Here appear tailored blazers, long skirts and fur coats always reinterpreted following the DNA of the brand that, among puff of fabrics and hems that look like ruffles, give us a fresh and elegant collection... pure Moschino style.
SISTER BY SIBLING
Is energic and funny the F/W collection signed by Paula Yates. The haevy volumes of knitwear are made more soft with a playful and ladylike aspect. I imagine an ironic punk princesswho loves to play with contrasts and volumes and who doesn't love to take her too seriously...
One of my favourite shows during the LFW 2013. Romantic and feminine, animated by stylish optical effects, the collection is characterized by linear and flared shapes, that remind 50's shapes, and pervaded by an allure that is bon ton and sensual at the same time.
90's silhouettes, schoolgirl style and a rock twist are the inspirations of this collection that plays on contrasts of fabrics and lenghts. A great use of prints, inspired by baroque and victorian that dominates clothes, fur stoles and oversize accessories.
