Antipodium London Fashion Week SS14
Antipodium is another of the cherry-picked shows I attend at London fashion week. Their Somerset House presentation was so tucked away I nearly missed it, but thankfully arrived just in time to see a waft of pleated metallic organza, shocking pink houndstooth and some brilliant tailoring.

Margaret Howell usually has a bit of French flavour in her summer collections, but this season she swapped l’esprit tropeziennne for a drift further afield to some island living, with jaunty prints, casual crossover sandals and a denim dungaree dress that I saw Vogue’s Fran Burns go gaga for. I really liked the chinos, impeccably [...]
If you haven’t already seen this, naughty Jimmy Kimmel tricks NYFW-goers into spouting nonsense about made up designers. George Costanza? Yeah, really great fabric manipulation, love him.
London Fashion Week! Yay! Boo! Like going to a festival, the path to enjoying Fashion Week is cherry picking your favourites and sneaking off from the madness [...]
Every once in a while I get in a funk with cycling, this time round I’m blaming the neverending winter (for this and everything else) and a lingering cold. I just can’t muster up the will to get on my bike right now. I’m happy to let this happen -peaks and troughs and all that [...]
A Topshop collaboration just before Fashion Week feels like a tradition now. This season we’re being treated to another helping of JW Anderson, and it seems he’s gone all school vibez. There’s a nice play between ‘good girl’ pieces like the revisited loafers and pleated skirt with a subversive, rebellious spirit that would have you [...]
I was going to post something completely different but my image filing system leaves er, a lot to be desired and I landed on a ton of London Fashion Week pics. Topical! I took this in the lifts at One Aldwych after biking all over the shop to see shows. Everyone should own a DVF [...]
Catwalk shows are thrilling and sometimes a little tear-inducing (who me?) but it’s always nice to get up close to the collections and check out the seams and the fabrics. Tactile vs catwalk, its not possible to pick but for designers like Michael van der Ham and Lucas Nascimento seeing the clothes and having a [...]
London Fashion Week Sunday started bright and early with Margaret Howell’s Wigmore street show. Military inspired with a jaunty, outdoorsy feel it was the perfect way to kick off the day.
Tam o’ Shanters, vintage style military tailoring and lots of greys and navy make me a very happy bunny indeed.
Mad props to Topshop and Mulberry [...]
London Fashion Week’s second day was a big un, with Daks starting off proceeding and Clements Ribeiro following shortly and dividing opinion. I loved the prints and the colour, but I wasn’t so sure about the pleather…
Faves of mine Teatum Jones held their presentation in Liberty, the wooded pannelled room providing the perfect setting for [...]
London Fashion Week Fridays always fizzle into action rather than bang and this season was no different. The sun was already beginning to fade as I cycled over Waterloo bridge but there were still some great shows ahead. I arrived at Somerset House to even more street style photographers than last season. Is this possible?
