London has always been a center of innovative and dynamic fashion. This year’s Fall 2017 season brought us towards a definition of reconstructed feminism, through the ideas of dressing up or downs with mixture of elaborated tailoring and play of silhouettes. The image of a bold, modern woman is presented through the simultaneous approaches in colors juxtaposition and relaxed cutting. Here I am going to share my favorite looks from the designers of the season:
- Simone Rocha
Military hues in Simone Rocha’s collection is strongly accentuated with the use of earthy colors such as olive, black, off white and a touch of reddish hues. Used to enhance the power and strength in that mood, she utilized cross-body belts as the must have accessories this season. Simone Rocha didn’t forget to slip a touch of dreamy and feminine elements such as lacey fabrics and flowery patterns towards the end of the looks that gives balance between both the sturdy and lady-like aesthetics.
2. Preen by Thornton Bregezzi
Teddy boys vibe is all over Preen by Thornton Bregezzi’s collection this season! Which means we got to see the puff sleeves and awkward length trousers with socks showed underneath. Ruffs, drapes and punk rock elements are also often seen in the runway looks joining the heavy flowery presence, completing the whole scenario of subtle rebelliousness in mind.
Questioning the status quo, perceptions of beauty and what “fashionable” is according to Demna Gvasalia is a part of societal values. His works for this season’s Vetements not only challenge the traditional standards of street style, but also to bring cast diversity to the surface. The use of models from different age groups seems to be a trend too in LFW this time around (Just like what Simone Rocha did). I guess it’s a humorous approach he’s taking to create a fashionable ode to the society.
I say, what a great time to be alive. Women are now not restricted to breathe heavily under tight clothing, through the attractiveness of relaxed and slouchy silhouette that is currently an investment to many. The working women feeling is now particularly reinvented through the use of dropped shoulders and over the top sleeves wrapped in natural color tone. JOSEPH is successful in interpreting modernity in a very alluring masculine charm .
As if you were transported to a fantastic, otherworldly land of Delpozo, you are going to be fascinated by the constructive and accurate tailoring done in the collection. Color blocking with exaggerated & futuristic details in each looks, does it remind you with the 1960s somehow? Because for me, Delpozo’s eccentric engagement this season resembled those outer space movies we saw during our childhood years.
