LFW | Autumn Winter 17 | Day 1
| Milo Maria |
Milo Maria is known for their lush graphic shapes and sharp tailoring, does contemporary cool oh-so-well. There is an aura of confidence around the presentation and a clear image of the modern woman that will feel comfortable in Milo Maria.The considered collection was a sea of cascading velvet, trumpet sleeves, frayed chunky knits and Victorian collars. With grey suits, army green jumpers and maroon midi dresses these were definitely the new staples for a modern woman. The presentation was creating all kinds of buzz with a queue of people, impatiently waiting at the King’s College location.
| Jasper Conran |
Jasper Conran presented their new 2017 collection at Claridges for London Fashion Week. Mastering the art of simplicity is a complex, rigorous exercise in discipline and control, the collection is more than what meets the eye providing just the right amount of interest with the minimum amount of components. Making a bold first impression, the black and white color combinations on a basic silhouette are strikingly modern. But on closer examination, he adds contrast piping around the edges which serve as a clean finished outline to the figure. Later he moves into colors of sunflower yellow, evergreen, and maroon in bold geometrics and color-blocking. A gentle transition of hues with the same clean, contemporary lines.
| Bora Aksu |
The designer, who is known for his dark romantic aesthetic, drew on the history of Princess Sophia Dunleep Singh, who campaigned for votes for women alongside Emmeline Pankhurst and was known for having a love of high fashion. The collection featured ruffles, lace and bonnets tied primly under the models’ chins.
| Daks |
DAKS autumn/winter collection was all elegance and sophistication where masculine tailoring meets feminine fluidity. Centred around the idea of the “Savile Row Woman”, classically masculine British sourced fabrics in herringbone, Prince of Wales check, pinstripes and houndstooth were subtly modified through grey tones, metallic embroidery, silver piping and royal blue stones which caught and reflected the light. Delicately embroidered sheer blouses were teamed with low slung pinstripe suit trousers.
