TRENDS - More Fashion Week Looks

I almost managed to keep up with the whole of London Fashion Week but with Milan and now Paris it's definitely not easy to keep up to speed. I have picked out a few more looks below though which could be a sign of things to come on the British High Street.

First up, it's those Russian hats! They appeared on the catwalk at Issa and Temperley below. Plus, with the weather at London Fashion Week being far from toasty, plenty of people hitting the shows were also sporting this furry headwear. I'm a hat person but I'm not sure I can pull this style off, what about you? More exciting the catwalk fashion though is the Temperley collaboration with Filofax! I love Filofax with a passion. 

 

Ashish went for grunge-glam with paisley prints in his trademark sequins. I wasn't a big fan of his A/W looks though, I much prefer his catwalk outfits for spring/summer with the playful florals and sequins brick wall design. The designer definitely mixes the feminine with the tough well though, and if that's your look he should be top of your list for style inspiration. Remember when I interviewed Ashish over here. Of the photos below, the 1st look is A/W and the rest are S/S...




 

Marni's H&M collaboration is the talk of the town at the moment, so the luxury brand's show was definitely THE one-to-watch. I love the punchy red in the collection as indicated by a couple of shots below (the cape was a look also spotted at Issa). The silhouettes are quite constructed with exaggerations at certain points like a wide sleeve or oversized collar. It was yet another example of the high necklines which I saw run through so many collections, necklines seem to have gone to their highest point for AW12. Are you a fan? My fuller bust isn't...

   


The Cacharel woman is described as 'fun, feminine and creative' and I have to admit, after seeing some of the pieces I wanted to be that woman. Amelia Earhart was also cited as an influence of the collection, evident from those chic cloche style hats. I loved the powdery grey/blue palette, punctuated with more vibrantly hued accessories and I just know that the coat picture below would be super flattering.
