London Day 3

THE THIRD DAY OF LONDON FASHION WEEK HAD A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT TRENDS ON OFFER. IT REVEALED STORIES ABOUT BEAUTY AND INDIVIDUALITY AS WELL AS STORIES ABOUT DANCE AND NEW UNIVERSES.

David Koma and Thornton & Bregazzi for Preen seemed to have had the same things in mind while crafting their respective Spring/Summer collections for the upcoming season. Each label beautifully translated ideas of contemporary dance into wardrobe staples. Whilst David Koma playfully contrasted shades of black and nude while keeping voluminous silhouettes in shape by tying or zipping them in the waist, Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi introduced a ruffled story about prettiness and romanticism. On both sides, it was a seasonable story of fashion’s never ending love for dance.

Also Jonathan Saunders let his customer base stand in awe this Sunday. The master of mixing prints and patterns once again proved that he knows how to handle colour-block. He showed bias-cut slip dresses in clashing prints and provided ample substance for eager anticipation of the upcoming season.

Later on that day, Issa’s Jamie O’Hare translated everything from monochromaticity to graphically embellished eveningwear into his clothes. Monochrome looks turned into a mixture of futuristic silhouettes and organic details. And of course he knew that white lace is an absolute must-have for Summer. To Paul Smith, independent minds were the key focus for Spring/Summer 2016. The collection opted for a “gentle rebellion against sartorial traditions”, resulting in sharply tailored silhouettes softened down by fluid fabrics. It was a confident collection that aimed at the individuality of the Paul Smith woman.

Mary Katrantzou’s digitally printed dresses have come undone. Yesterday, we got to see a collection with a strong focus on handcrafted embellishments. It might have had a galactic touch but at the same time it felt like a mermaid’s dream come true. Striking oceanic influences in the form of beading went hand in hand with voluminous shapes and sharp tailoring. It felt exciting, like a newly created universe from the first to the very last look.
