London Fashion Week SET 2013 // Day 3 & 4

Day 3 and 4: Mulberry and Burberry! Undoubtedly the greatest collections. I also loved Tom Ford's shinny dresses and jumpsuits.

Mulberry's collection took inspiration on the 60's (especially in the dresses). Flowers and soft stripes were the main prints, in shadows of grey, red/orange, nude, black and white. Even Turbo, the label's British bulldog, wore an overcoat with flowers.

"Topshop Unique is a high-street label that attracts a high-fashion crew. The proof is both on the runway and in the crowd, where you'll find Cara Delevingne on the catwalk and Kate Moss, Ashley Madekwe, and Anna Wintour queued up front row to see just what the cool-girl dress code will look like next season." For Spring 2014, Topshop presented us with "a quirky, '70s-feeling garden-party girl who doesn't shy away from a statement hue or a little sparkle. It's a lineup of juxtapositions that make it so cool (and so wearable); on the one hand, you have a beautifully embroidered peplum top, but it's paired with boyfriend jeans and leather sandals. Sportier cuts, boxy pullovers and ponchos, and breezy chambray gets the perfect counter with ankle-wrap gladiator heels, the kind of contrasts that add up to a killer downtown girl's wardrobe." fashionologie

Mary Katrantzou is one of my favourite's print designer. She showed us shoes and floweres. "The designer reasserted her signature with an about-face from Fall's somber palette and a finale that walked to the upbeat tune of The Rolling Stones' "She's a Rainbow." Katrantzou's models were certainly like a rainbow in piecework floral patterns of neon purple, fluorescent green, electric blue, acid yellow, and the hottest of pinks - often embellished with Swarovski crystals for maximum impact. Lest these aspects be missed, there were ruffles, too, as well as rhinestones, faux leather and lacing, ribbons, and bubble silhouettes so voluminous that they could (nearly!) rival those vibrant prints for attention." fashionologie

Antonio Berardi used pink in order to promote his feminine collection with sweet dresses, "sportswear-inspired sweaters and biker jackets stopped". "Alongside the pink came rich red and white, cream, silver, and black on separates, rise-and-fall dresses, and oversize tops. Prints barely appeared at all, save for the odd dash of a metallic animal print and delicate embroidered blooms on some dresses. Really it was the fabric choices and clever panel work that gave the looks their intricate detail; stiff silk against soft chiffon and organza with leather, sheer stripes against opaque, and sleeves with big shoulders and stiffened panels." fashionologie

Peter Pilotto started with "pieces that blended fabrics in sky blue, mint, and bright green with lace and tweed. Floral and graphic prints also figured in this irrepressibly bright collection, mixed to perfection with one another." fashionologie

Tom Ford showed us body-con dresses and jumpsuits. "We got 360-degree views of second-skin leather ensembles, laced-up-to-there boots, and a head-to-toe sparkling mosaic design". fashionologie

Burberry was my favourite collection! Christopher Bailey used pastel colours in contrast with strong red and green bags and shoes, lace over underpants and jewellery simulating the English Rose. The English Rose is also the main theme of the collection, a lady, a typical English girl, initially a vicar's wife but in the end a very strong woman. The silhouettes were mostly pencil skirts, feminine body-con dresses and boxy overcoats.
