Burberry Prorsum Womenswear Spring Summer 2015

London Fashion Week

Of course the highlight of any London Fashion Week for me is the Burberry Prorsum show. Not only is the show great but catching all the people as they walk around Kensington Gardens before the runway presentation gives me lots of outfit and style inspiration.

I was super excited when I watched this Burberry Prorsum Womenswear show. Not only were the array of colours gorgeous but I could see many items that I loved straight away. The presentation, titled The Birds and the Bees, opened to the sound of James Bay playing acoustic guitar whilst singing. It was interesting to note that Cara Delevingne sat front row with Kate Moss rather than walking in the show.

The models who walked down the runway first were modestly covered in denim jackets with feather trim. The seams on these jackets were very flattering and their cut reminded me a little bit of corsets. I loved the two skirts you can see below in photo one and two. Models carried small buckled doctors bags in bright colours and wore sneakers on their feet.

As the show progresses the looks start to excite me even more - the transparent dresses of cobweb tulle, transparent tops with jackets for modesty and the dragonfly belts. I think my favourite dress is shown in photo eleven. However I often change my mind later once I look at the photos more and more. I decide I like even more pieces in the end. I also really like the top in photo three as it reminds me of fish scales.

The Burberry Prorsum final walk is well known. Check out the last photo below for the colourful rainbow that was the final walk at the Burberry Prorsum Spring Summer 2015 Womenswear show.

I also have the pleasure of including some of the marvelous street style photos taken by my friend Vincent of yourensemble.com. He was on the ground at London Fashion Week. The street style shots below were taken before and after the Burberry Prorsum show around Kensington Gardens. Check them out!

Do It Yourself New York Street Style

New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015

Well! What a whirlwind! As you all know New York Fashion Week has closed but never fear London Fashion Week is well underway. I am looking forward to the Burberry Prorsum Spring Summer 2015 Womenswear show amongst others
of course.

Let's look back on New York Fashion Week for a while...

The Rodarte Show Had Some Interesting Eye Accessories

But I will focus on my favourite part of any Fashion  Week - the Street Style. Amongst the usual famous faces there were lots of outfits that pushed boundaries. Check out the male barbie leg collar shown in the Street Style shot three below! And who said that your shorts needed to sit at waist level (see photo 9).

Birdcage a Glass Vessel

Gala Fernandez and Mexican Artists Realise Confinement Versus Refuge
in Glass

When I saw the below images I just had to share Out of the Cage with you all. These amazing glass vessels have been created by head designer Gala Fernandez and some Mexican Artisans using various sized birdcages as moulds and supports for the blown glass.

This experimental glass blowing project questions the status of confinement versus refuge because a cage can be viewed as either a place of confinement or as a shelter for comfort. You can see some of the final pieces in the last three photos below. These objects carry the marks of the cages they were blown in. The viewer can clearly see the creation process they went through. I have to say that I like these objects with their cages around them still. I love the clear colourful glass versus the lines of the metal cages around them. These pieces remind me of trapped rainbows and oddly enough Chanel Shopper Baskets from the Chanel Fall 2014 RTW Supermarket Runway (see photo 4 below).

What do you think of these beautiful glass vessels? And do they remind you of anything specific? Comment at the end of the post!

Alexander Wang @ New York Fashion Week

Spring Summer 2015 Ready-to-Wear

New York Fashion Week is in full swing and it's great to see all the street style and Instagram photos from the
people attending.

My favourite show so far has been the Alexander Wang Spring Summer 2014 RTW presentation. I was immediately drawn to the body-con dresses that appeared to hug the body like bandage dresses. These dresses were in fact made from Nike's familiar flyknits. Of course there were actual sneakers too - see the first photo below.

I suppose the clothes that Wang sent down the runway could be described as Sports Luxe. There were many separates that appealed to me; and I could see many possible combinations that I could create over and above the outfits that were styled for this runway show. I loved the black braided top in photo 5 and I could see that it could work with the white perforated tennis skirt in photo 8. Wang pieces are great because they are versatile and will fit into most wardrobes. Which leads me onto my next favourite outfit of the show which appears in photo 6. I love this top - the pattern and shape is
very appealing.

The show really has everything, even a pair of tuxedo-like pants that you could wear to the office. In fact the only complaint I have is that some of the models look a bit worried.

Take a look at the photos and check out the video below. Which look is your favourite? Comment at the end of the post!
