Across the pond the action is heating up despite the low temperatures. First off, Christopher Kane’s show was absolutely delightful. I thoroughly enjoyed his more feminine approach and now can proudly say I want to own a pair of crocs, but only if they’re from his brand… The textures and plethora of colors kept me intrigued throughout the whole show, and if you look closely, another shoe design of his is heels with foam peeking out of course. He’s just trying to make heels more comfortable while starting probably one of the newest and most popular trends in the future.
Erdem was an absolute dream. Erdem Moralioglu’s inspiration behind his collection was the fantasy meeting of his two great grandmothers, and the result of that imaginary meeting was fantastic. I really love how he can make possibly the most frilly and girly dress imaginable but still manage to make it strong and innovative.
Even though Burberry’s collection is See-Now-Buy-Now for Spring 2017, it has to be one of Christopher Bailey’s best collections for the brand. I absolutely adored the use of white, khaki, and navy together, which may seem quite basic, but with the lace and the structure of the clothing, there was nothing basic about this collection.
Marques’ Almeida is street style gold. Any one of those looks could be seen on the street, and these looks are so wearable, fresh, and exciting because there is something for everyone in that collection.
J.W. Anderson was really fascinating to me. It was not my absolute favorite collection, but I can safely say every look I saw was like nothing I’d ever seen before, which, of course, is a testament to Anderson’s creativity. I especially loved the strapless dress with the raw zipper in the middle of the bust. It was so simple yet very elegant and new.
Mary Katrantzou was inspired by the movie Fantasia, and the clothes were exceptional. I miss her wacky prints and embellishments, but I think now she has progressed into a more mature designer, which translates in her clothes. Seeing the story of the movie play out in the clothes was a very smart way to make her collection even more cohesive.
Versus Versace always is just a badass show. Every. Time. This collection, neon mixed with grunge in the best way possible, and it made me want to buy a leather dress with slits up the side immediately. So that’s it for now! See you in Milan. Ciao!
