London Fashion Week: Day Two
By Grace Carroll
Hmph, it’s Day Two of London Fashion Week and that lingering sore throat of mine has finally caught up with me and I’m forced to stay home in bed. Perhaps staying out a bit too late at the Braganza party after a long day of shows is what finally did me in? At least I can now catch up on some rest, snuggle up in bed and stay updated on the day’s events via Twitter and Style.com. What on earth would a girl do without these two wonderful websites!? So what are we seeing for SS11 so far? I’m seeing PRINTS! Whether it be in bright pastels or muted colours, prints and metallics dominated the Day Two runways. I absolutely loved the flower-power meets 70s glam goddesses that were sent down the runway at Topshop Unique. I can already see the flowing, printed chiffon maxis with thigh-high slits being a hit amongst glam party girls and fashion festival goers alike next year.
More Day Two trends after the jump!
Perhaps a bit easier to add in to your work- and day-wear wardrobe would be pieces from the House of Holland collection. Sweet and playful with a very retro vibe, HOH was also big on the bold print trend but showcased them in more structured separates such as tailored shorts and a blazers that could easily pep up your SS11 wardrobe.
Pleated skirts are a big trend for AW10 and I loved how Henry continued the trend, and made it current for spring by designing them in bold metallic colours. Genius!
Sienna Miller and her sister may not be known for pushing fashion boundaries, but you have got to hand it to the Twenty8Twelve duo, the girls know how to create clothes that girls want to wear. Easy and pretty, each model that walked down the runway looked effortlessly chic and fashionable in looks that you will want to wear when you are out-and-about this spring and through to summer.
