LFW A/W14 - Day One
primark nailsSo here I am again. Another fashion week. I think it might be my sixth now, and im starting to finally feel like I fit in. Although the only thing letting me down this season is this hideous weather.This is what I wore on day one of aw 14. I went with a suit as the weather is horrific, and I needed to keep warm so badly. Trews were a last min buy from Missguided and i actually sized up thinking they'd come small, but they didn't. So they were a touch too big. I also "forgot how to coat" in which I forget how to put my arms in my coat for two weekends a year. Although with this weather I best learn how to! AND QUICK!
Lulu Liu was my first show of the day, and it didn't disappoint. Her collection was filled with Chinese inspired pieces but with a simple elegant twist. Bold reds, bright oranges mixed with soft blues and neutrals. It was a really interesting collection and the first time I'd seen her show, but I was thoroughly impressed.
Fyodor Golan can only be described as bats hit. Literally so cr`zy but really hie in a weird way. It's a very surreal collection with hints of crocodiles, metallic greens and furry neon pink. Sequins are draped and exaggerated, and with each outfit the overall feel of the show got even more extravagant. Organza frills, tulle sleeves, foil finishings and Swarovski crystals embossed on the pieces adorned the suitably hot pink catwalk. I'll talk more about mega Babe Chloe Norgaard wearing a pretty cool dress make out of Nokia phones in a later post, but for now, I'll just share this snap!
Eudon Choi was super wearable, probably the most wearable collection I've seen so far. A mix of British heritage style pieces with a minimal edge. I can see the whole collection being a huge hit with fashionistas. The colour palette was autumnal bit with a hint of neutral blues, greens and creams. From the loose tailoring, oversized cuts and faux fur shawls. From the skinny cigarette trousers to the oversized hoods, the whole collection was a dream, and I need it in my wardrobe ASAP.
Pam Hogg was Pam Hogg. From her eclectic front row (think Rankin and Bobby Guilesspe) to her trademark jumpsuits to her bright in your face colours, then her head pieces.... The models were androgynous and unique. With a big nod to Pussy Riot and a huge statement against homophobia and repression going on in Russia. Empowering and exciting the whole show was just a joy to watch. Shocking but also with a clear message. Oh Pam Hogg. Despite this, I felt the collection was overall very similar to her spring summer collection. I liked it as much as a girl can like a rainbow jumpsuit, but I just felt it was too similar to spring summer. I wanted it to be a little different, even though it's classic Pam.
