Take a look at our Top 5 Picks for London Fashion Week.
House of Holland
Let’s kick this thing off with something fun and imaginative like House of Holland. Designer Henry Holland is known for his unique designs, often themed. He’s like a kid in a candy store when it comes to fashion. And his runway shows are often dramatic. One year he held his show a cathedral with all of his models wearing see-through dresses and no bras.
The fashion house showed its 2018 Spring/Summer ready-to-wear collection. There were a lot of garments that featured wavy horizontal stripes. As expected color rained supreme, with bright yellows, reds, and blues. All of the clothing seemed comfortable for everyday wear. The girl who wears this seasons House of Holland collection is obviously dressing fdowntimeime or hanging out with her friends during the weekend. She’s definitely not going to a cocktail party or getting slutty for the club.
Henry did a great job, as always, of placing his enthusiams, fun loving spirit, and overall personality into his clothing for girls to enjoy.
VERSUS Versace is the brainchild of designer and the creative mind of Versace, Donatella Versace. She created the subsidiary to have something of her own, since at times she felt that the empire of Versace was the creation of her late brother Gianni Versace; and she was just a place holder. The line continues the tradition of Versace’s sexy reputation, but it also is younger and fresher.
This season, the line featured numerous sexy black numbers for men and women. There were also a couple of pieces in olive green an then a few yellow and light denim garments. The collection captures Donatella’s sexy vision for young people. And boy did she go there.
Tommy Hilfiger is the one American designer that can go over to another country and show out. His very American designs translate almost seemlessly into other cultures. The current Hilfiger collection features pieces with his classic prints and colors. It’s almost like their stamped with Hilfiger all over them, just in case you needed to know.
There were a lot of casual looks that can be worn to school, social events, or just going about town. He presented men’s and women’s looks; simultaneously having classic and modern appeal.
Armani is infamous for its impeccable tailoring, however it took a different route this season. When it comes to womenswear the clothing is fun and flirty; with colors that standout without popping. Over 100 looks walked the runway in London, and almost every piece was a coveted item.
Full pants suit outfits that aren’t anything like what your mother or Hillary Clinton would wear. The two-piece jumpsuits come in amazing colors and prints. The dresses are very unique and even the menswear stands out. Overall, round of applause for Mr. Armani for showing us that he still has it.
Talking about Burberry in London is like being British and referring to the Queen. It’s so familar, but will always be prestigeous. All of the looks from Buerry’s show were expected; and that’s what makes the brand great. You always know what to expect from them, but you still don’t know what’s coming.
Burberry will always give check patterns, amazing coats, panchos, sweaters, and pants, They give modern London everytime. This season, they started off with pieces that look similar to pajamas and then showcased a lot of outerwear pieces. They basically gave what they’ve given for years, but don’t mistake that as a diss because it was still amazing.
