The second day of London Fashion Week reveals a heavy sports influence as well as the neutral colour trend demonstrate by Gareth Pugh and Fashion East.
Fashion East by Caitlin Price
Sports luxe at its best demonstrated by the second designer, Caitlin Price at Fashion East. Showing off the mid-rif and pairing trainers with short skirts teaches everyone how the modern city-girl takes her street style. I’m not usually a fan of fur detail on anything that isn’t a coat but the blush pink mini skirt needs to appear in my wardrobe ASAP.
So it looks like I’ve just uploaded the entire contents of the Julien Macdonald show from Vogue… But I didn’t! This is a failed attempt of minimising the amount of looks I post. Aesthetic wise, Julien Macdonald is England’s Balmain with a bit more edge. The menswear is immaculate: the tailoring is sharp and the patterns flatter the models’ bodies. The womenswear is elegant but still masculine. A woman who wear a Julien Macdonald dress has the power to command the eyes of a room full of people to her instantly.
First of all, I’d like to thank Gareth Pugh for keeping the hair and makeup to a minimum, (unlike last season with those clown-like marks and bright red hair). I love how bridge has been used in contrast with brighter colours to make a vibrant statement. The capes and the coats resting in the shoulders create a relaxed but confident look.
