The best of London Fashion Week!

Mary Katrantzou

Visually captivating and vibrant graphic prints with a cute, feminine feel.

TOPSHOP Unique

 
  
When I first saw this collection, it immediately reminded me of 'Where The Wild Things Are'. Models are styled like woodland nymphs in a clash of function and fashion.

Julien MacDonald

  
I'm not normally a fan of MacDonald's work; I often find his designs overbearing and gaudy, but these dresses are simple and fresh, with beautiful lace details. 

Christopher Kane

 
 A refreshing new take on black with brightly coloured floral embellishments and jewelled details. 

Erdem
 
 
  
  
  
 
 Erdem's Autumn/Winter presentation felt very much like a natural progression of his Spring/Summer Collection; the same basic shapes were featured, but this time around the prints were reminiscent of the kaleidoscopic colours of the autumn landscape. I especially love the bird print dresses and Erdem's juxtaposition of colours here; my favourite from London.

Basso and Brooke

 
Yet more vibrant prints, to me this collection was evocative of Alexander McQueen's wildlife inspired Spring/Summer 2010 presentation.

Burberry Prorsum

 
 
This collection looks so warm! After the freezing winter we've had over here, everyone will be investing in one of Christopher Bailey's gorgeous shearling coats and a pair of sheepskin lined boots, which with their military feel are perfect for fighting your way through blizzards!

Jonathan Saunders

 
 
With cool hues and an ice-princess attitude, this collection was clean and contemporary. I adore the pastel boots. 

Peter Pilotto

 Featuring the graphic prints he has made his name with, the aesthetic of this collection is kept vibrant through incorporation of a flash of tangerine and metallics. 

What have been your favourite collections from London? Any that I've missed?

See you the other side of Milan!
