I didn’t go to that many London Fashion Week shows this season. Unless you’re writing daily roundups, there’s really no reason to attend back to back shows when you can watch most of them on Instagram Stories. The exception is super-dramatic shows (Ashley Williams and Burberry sound like they had the best music) and shows where I’m personally invested in the brand.
Margaret Howell ticks that box for me in the mode of a couture client mentally ticking off the pieces I’m going to order. (more…)
Like it or not, street style at Fashion Week is still a major barometer for the trends we’ll all be wearing in months to come. Yes it’s contrived, yes, most ‘influencers’ are wearing stuff that’s borrowed, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t carefully mapped out their outfits to the nth degree.
Here are the handbags I expect to see all over the street style round-ups. Some of them have had a lot of mileage already, but come in new colours, sizes or materials. (more…)
“There were places and reasons why street style had integrity and now, it’s about dressing up to take a selfie to put on the internet. It’s about going out so you can stay home and write about it. There’s a disconnect that’s weird.” Marc Jacobs, ES Magazine
