Christopher Kane’s Fall 2016 collection, which debuted at London Fashion Week on Monday, was kind of nuts.
Ashish Gupta, whose immersive sequin obsession consistently lands him as the favored go-to designer for party girls with a cool streak (Charli XCX sat front row), celebrated iridescence and bright nightlight hues in a surprisingly simple collection at London Fashion Week.
London Fashion Week has emerged, like a beautiful butterfly, out of the sea of (sorry!) drab bullshit that NYFW hath wrought. Two collections, by House of Holland and Mary Katrantzou, respectively, invited a sense of lighthearted theatricality that was just... god, such a relief!
Sarah Burton’s latest fantastical collection for Alexander McQueen invoked, at least in spirit, the legends in Game of Thrones, its gestures towards medieval mythologies gleaming through in silvery unicorn appliqués on delicate lace and romantic, papillon-festooned boudoir jackets. Despite the lilting nature of the…
Since we last met, London Fashion Week flossed for several more days and ended and now it’s Milan Fashion Week. But who cares about stupid Milan because y’all, there was so much great shit in London.
Some fashion shows, you get the feeling that the poor models are having the worst time of their lives—and worse, that looking that way was an artistic direction from the designer. Not so at Ashish, my favorite designer ever, who today showed his signature sequin-candy creations at London Fashion Week with some…
It was just a year ago that Karl Lagerfeld sent models down the Chanel runway in a “feminist protest,” carrying picket signs with dumb slogans like “Be Your Own Stylist” that meant virtually nada other than co-optation for a trend. And it was just Sunday that Dame Vivienne Westwood, who has spent a good amount of the…
Nooooow we’re talking. Every fashion month, London Fashion Week is like the fun prize we get for sitting through New York Fashion Week (or, alternately, like the party you’re allowed to go to after you’re finally excused from dinner with your parents). Of course there’s greatness and lovely ideas at NYFW—for Spring,…
London fashion week is doing the damn thing for your face, and a trend is popping up that fans of goth and danger-glam will go gaga for: slick pools of black tar on your lips, reflective as oil in a puddle. It's like latex for the face and I am here for it all.
Scottish designer Christopher Kane presented an in-fucking-credible collection at London Fashion Week yesterday, pounding the runway with conservative silhouettes crossed with a stark, blazing, tactile sexuality.
Fashion month marches on with the infinitely more exciting London Fashion Week, and the initial dispatches are a full-blown thrill. These two looks in particular portend a far more interesting Fall 2015 than the droll one offered by many at New York Fashion week: bright, spacey, futuristic vibes that spark the…
Here's a milestone: This year's London Fashion Week included a real-deal plus-size runway show for the brand Evans. Which is even more remarkable when you consider they're the UK equivalent of Lane Bryant. Maybe the plus-size corporate motherships really are catching on!
London Fashion Week marches on, and yesterday Tom Ford delivered a typically Fordian, which is to say extremely sexy, collection. (How sexy are we talking? Nipple pasty-level sexy.)
Now that New York Fashion Week has ended, London Fashion Week is in full swing. Over the weekend, Vivienne Westwood showed a collection that looks like the wardrobe of a school play about pirates that's been half-foraged from a lost and found. But it has a political message: by affixing "YES" pins to several of the…
Come fall, there will be a very special model walking during London Fashion Week: Julian Assange. How can he do this without being extradited? The show — featuring designs by Vivienne Westwood's son Ben — will be held inside an embassy. That's how.
Even if you consider yourself open-minded, some of the pieces from the Autumn/Winter mens' fashion week 2014 collections in London may give you pause.
London Fashion Week is known for sending some of the edgier and more daring looks down the runway, which actually just means that it's the place to go if you wanna see some weird-ass shit. Here, we collected the entire week's worth of stuff that maybe only Björk would wear.
New York Fashion Week is over. Now London Fashion Week is underway. Today, Christopher Bailey presented his beauteous spring 2014 collection for Burberry Prorsum.
