Here are my loves and loathes from the London shows, check out my New York critiques here, Milan here, and Paris here.
that Gareth Pugh manages to put on an awesome show whilst still showing some very nice and wearable clothing, like this red dress.
a grown up Holly Fulton collection that is still interesting.
baggy sweatshirt over slinky lace dress. But the rest of this Burberry show was a mixed bag, some nice stuff, some boring stuff, and some tacky stuff.
Peter Pilotto’s clean, chic collection.
Mary Katrantzou’s print mixes. But let’s not talk about the non-printed, non-embellished items in this collection because they were very weak.
that cheap fabrics seem to be a Christopher Kane trademark.
that Jonathan Saunders always looks dull and void of personality. And don’t get me started on the colour combinations…
that I am having trouble getting excited about this brand. I want to love Erdem but I can’t be convinced with these tea dresses and old woman florals.
that this bra is an exact copy of a vintage one photographed in several books. If you are going to copy a vintage piece exactly, then don’t make it the first look of your show, as well as a running theme through it.
that Giles relied on gimmicks and not skill to put together this collection.
