LFW – a few more reviews

Since I have been watching the shows online I am relying on live streaming to keep me fed!

Moreover, the lovely PRs are keeping the post show imagery a coming! First into my inbox today was Paul Smith womenswear which stuck to a boyish look.

Tapered trousers matched with single breasted blazers (and with brogues) make for a sightly androgynous look for next season. I did like the charcoal and petrol blue shade of the trousers and casual chic feel to the whole thing.

 

Next up is definitely one to watch, Jasper Garvida. I’m calling it “monochrome metallic”. Reason being is that the whole collection was very futuristic in colour, structure and tone.

 

His use of prints is really interesting, by layering a zebra like print over a more graphic one on pieces such as full length maxi dress with v neck cut to the waist and a double breasted crop jacket worn over silver metallic shorts.

One of my favourite pieces is a beautifully constructed white evening gown with gold sequin (large ones that is) embellished waistline. It may even be a top and skirt from the image (here’s when being at a show really helps!).

Jasper is also a fan of the shoulders, with plenty of cap sleeves on dresses to billowing ones on blouses. There is something a little Balmain about this collection but I will go so far as to say that it is a lot more wearable, a little less edgy, and as I am sure, a lot less expensive than the Parisen label tends to be.
