London Fashion Week AW’14: Day Two Round Up

Sunday 16 February 2014 by

It was a brighter day for the Saturday of London Fashion Week, and there was no rest for the wicked as the second day got under way. Some of the biggest designer names graced the catwalk for Saturday, from Jasper Conran opening the day to Julien Macdonald closing it, and I’ll be honest, I spent a lot of my day glued to the live feeds, so this may not make a whole lot of sense because I was LFW-blind by the end of the it all!

 

Saturday 15th February: Schedule

 

Emilio de la Morena

Texture, texture, texture at Emilio de la Morena. His Spanish roots were referenced through ruffles across the shoulders, skirts and plackets of dresses, but it was his use of texture that really shone – crushed velvet, lurex, taffeta, and knit. His colour palette was equally as varied and bright – crimson, cobalt, magenta, aubergine and teal. There were touches of Eighties-inspired silhouettes, with A-line dresses, flared skirts, bell-bottom trousers, and then coats of shearling, baby pink and blazers. It was a riot of colour, shape and texture – poking fun at those bitter and dark Autumn and Winter months.

Holly Fulton

It was all about the working businesswoman at Holly Fulton yesterday. She described it as more grown-up but with her signature style worked in, and that about summed it up. There were Deco motifs, flapper-like pleats and florals, in a muted palette of nude, dove grey, robin’s egg blue and dusty pink. Schiaparelli-like hands, boots and bags were printed big and bold across the collection. Sheer panelling gave the vintage-inspired shapes a modern twist, whilst fabrics were kept luxe. It felt sleek, with handfuls of fun thrown in.

Lucas Nascimento

Much like Emilio de la Morena, the Brazilian designer decided to play with textures for Autumn/Winter 2014. Shapes were demure and looser-fitting, with slouchy boots and wide-leg trousers, with skirt lengths no shorter than midi, preferring to skim the ankle. Teal, mustard and camel were dotted with a deep burgundy and a shy animal print – accenting knitted dresses rather than overtaking them. But once again this London Fashion Week, it was the coats that stood out – a fur-collared jacket, an ankle-skimming military-esque coat in teal, and a boxy mint jacket paired with deep-green wide-legged trousers. Dreamy.
