I am going to do this one in a slightly different format as I waded through days of show waiting for something to bowl me over ..............The closest I got to that is ERDUM which I found to be exquisite--intricate--delicate and yet razor sharp .For me this is what clothes look like and this is why LVMH now owns part of it
All the hype around BURBERRY PRORSUM is just that ....hype. No matter how hard I try and how many seasons I look at this collection , I have yet to see what's so great ..This season was no exception as I found the collection to be heavy handed and over worked. I can only think that the reviews it garners are based strictly in proportion to their advertising dollars spent.
AQUASCUTUM---If the underpinnings were less distracting then what would have been see is a fabulous collection of "RAINWEAR"...........with some good editing this is something to watch and possibly regain its stature
I would like to give special mention to LUELLA ,PRINGLE, MARY KATRANTZOU, SYKES, SCUTT, JOSH GOOT AND PPQ for showing collections that are certainly worth a second look
LONDON has always been the laboratory of fashion with so many young designers starting out , but I must say that there is a startling amount of shows with not much to "say".......................there were however unbelievable fabulous prints which I haven't seen in many years.............and certainly the term "ENGLISH ECCENTRIC" is well earned this season
