LFW s/s 19
If there was one word to describe LFW, it’s sophistication. If NYFW was all about laid back style and relaxed fit, LFW was almost the opposite. Maybe it’s just the British being British.. Anyhow, the result was quite stunning. It was fitted, but not stiff, and definitely not unapproachable. Most designers really had the every day women on their minds while creating the collections. In front of you, my favorite moments of LFW;
This is definitely not a new trend, and we’ve seen it on the runways and street style before, but it’s definitely not going anywhere. Fashion is becoming practical, and the mini-won’t-fit-your-phone bags are slowly going off the radar. Now your bags should be able to fit half of your belongings - just a slight transition, right?
There were a few jaw dropping moments during LFW. Here are some of the mention worthy shows of the week;
JW Anderson created a collection the felt like an approachable way to be sophisticated. Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL Pieces, that you could see yourself wearing on an everyday basis. Can I have everything?
Victoria Beckham is a fashion icon. Her own personal style is always on point, always classic yet with a twist. With so many people looking up to her for fashion inspiration, it’s not surprising that her brand celebrated his 10th anniversary.
Simone Rocha was probably my favorite show of LFW. It was a cultural, personal, dreamy trip into Rocha’s world. It was like watching a show from a different (incredibly chic) world. It was a glittering princess fantasy, that somehow didn’t feel immature, but grown up and you guessed it, sophisticated.
Erdem had the Victorian era as inspiration for his show, but succeeded in keeping it modern and relevant.
It was a historical moment for Burberry. It was Ricardo Tisci’s first collection as creative director, and it was known the collection would set the expectations for the future of Burberry. I must say, the future looks bright. It was a fantastic collection, very true to the brand’s esthetic, yet with a fresh out look. If Riccardo’s aim is to cater for all generations, then to cater for all generations he will.
