London fashion week AW11: Ann-Sofie Back Atelje

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Ann-Sofie Back’s gone all sophisticated! Her Atelje collection represented her grown up, polished side with echos of Helmut Lang and Martin Margiela – think spare tailoring with minimalist, clever details. I loved the satin tailored jackets with gold metal corners and Continue reading

London Fashion Week AW11: Margaret Howell

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

What I loved about Margaret Howell’s show (and Margaret Howell in general) is that this collection could have been shown any time between 1990 and now. The cable sweaters, hooded schoolgirl coats, cropped trouser suits and pinafores are clothes that go Continue reading

London Fashion Week AW11: JW Anderson

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

JW Anderson’s show had everything I could possibly dream of. His show notes described his unisex approach as ‘taking ‘stuff you’d probably expect to see on girls on boys and vice versa and making very little of it’. So out came the now-familar bovver boots (decorated Continue reading

London Fashion Week AW11: Charles Anastase

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

That Charles Anastase is a bit of a whizz with a coat isn’t he? Continuing the youthful nostalgia tip of DAKS and Orla Kiely, he presented a megamix of his signature looks, showing great variations on the pleatback, half belted outerwear in mohair, ponyskin and Continue reading

London Fashion Week AW11: DAKS

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


A youthful ‘Princess Margaret meets Jackie O’ kind of summed up DAKS for me with lots of English classics – Guernsey sweaters, quilted waterproofs, pleated skirts, DAKS plaid – given a new spin with clever plays on tradition. The full quilted ball skirt and sweater combo is surely the winter version of Jil Continue reading

London Fashion Week AW11: Day 1 highlights

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


The coldest fashion week I can remember had me trussed up in knitted layers and Woolrich extreme weatherwear. Despite the biting chill, there was a positive feeling in the air. My highlights included Prophetik’s eco-meets-equestrian menswear, the patent Continue reading

London Fashion week AW11: Orla Kiely

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


The film and presentation format seems to be working a treat for Orla Kiely. Her signature mid-sixties silhouettes – high waisted dresses, Peter Pan collars, school girl coats – were styled on a coterie of bouffant haired, Hitchcocky heroines and choreographed in a three-minute film by Mercedes Helnwein. Continue reading
