New week, new fashion week, this time from London, and first of all from the great Jonathan Anderson, who made – again – a different, but still really modern and covetable collection.
The inspiration this time came from the British medieval ages, when Henry III loved to wear ribboned, puffy sleeves, big quilted jackets and well, tights. These elements gave the traditional side – which designers seem to love for a while -, but there are plenty of things besides which could be admired (too); like for example the handkerchief dresses with muted colors ruched details everywhere.
And can we stop here for a moment? I mean, what about this dress craze on the runways? Is it a reinvented, back to the roots traditional approach, or more like the most modern thing, after all women have been living in trousers for a while, but it’s only their privilege to wear skirts and dresses? The question is rhetorical, as long as it’s more about practicality and diversity reasons, I can live with their popularity among designers, moreover I’m welcoming them. After all, they’re nice to wear over pants too. 🙂
And how great are they with those boots? Although, I’m most definitely an ankle boot type of girl, I wouldn’t say no to these lacey high boots, especially – speaking of practicality – if they come with a zip on the side. 🙂
I know, this is London, but can’t get over this distracting mess of crowd on the pictures. I mean, is it just me, or this runway is way too narrow?
