MALAN BRETON AW19 – LONDON FASHION WEEK

Malan Breton AW19 – London Fashion Week

          ‘Cine Malan’ – Cinematic drama , based on the story of actress, Norma Desmond.

            The House Of Malan Breton, was a journey through a nostalgic world of 1920s characters. The atmosphere was incredible… moving from room to room observing incredible looks in leather , tulle, sequins, and  sharp tailoring.  

       

He takes on his own twist to the traditional trench with a megawatt metallic finish in gunmetal, contrasted with the soft piping of faux fur. Taiwanese embroidery techniques are deeply sewn and rooted into the seams as well his soul. Gowns intensely hand-sequined in rich reds and bold burgundies. Leather adorned in Swarovski crystals and Japanese fresh water dying are a few of the masterful techniques used to create the luxuries of this collection.

       
Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter, Keira Chaplin was part of the cast for the presentation. Wearing an Incredible red tulle gown. 

Malan ;“What if we could know the stories of the mad man, the other side of life as told by victims, what if we could know the pain, the suffering, the loss and abandon that bring the antagonists to madness. What if in this exploration of psyche we learn that the evil, the unkind were once pure. What if we knew their joys, and could save them before their last moments.

ZANDRA RHODES AW19 – SUNSET HOUR

THE GOLDEN HOur – A/W 19 – LONDON FASHION WEEK

Presentation on day 5 of #lfw @ the textile museum in Bermondsey, south London. Always love visiting this space.

The collection is based aroud the ‘Golden Hour’, the time before sunset; the colours become warmer and the Zandra woman becomes even more empowered.

This season’s shapes draw inspiration from Victoriana – incorporating elegant pearl button cuffs and delicate waistlines. Flamenco style ruffles adorn the garments in true Zandra style. For AW19 looks are tired and extra frou frou.

The colour palette is an ode to dding warmth to the colder months. Sangrai and Straw earth tones partner with rich hues in chiffon and shimmer satin. The two piece os reintroduced into this collection for the versatile woman, taking power dressing to new heights as evening wear.

Basking in the glow of the sunset, the Zandra Rhodes woman is ready for anything day or night.

PAULA KNORR A/W19 – LONDON FASHION WEEK 

Monday favourite presentation with gliz and sparkle. Sheer,sequins and lots of movement in the garments.  The styling was gorgeous. At the core of the collection, bold figure hugging sihlouettes with drapes in a mix of delicate sequin fabrics are all finished with lycra back panels to allow flexibility and movement.

 

Hints of ‘sporty’ detailing ar injected throughout the collection with relaxed shapes like deconstructed Tunica’s and Palazzo pants, in sparkly oversize sequins, featuring Sportive lurex ribbing. This focus on comfort continues with luxurious silk gowns and kaftans featuring double drapes and rushing allowing for that fluid movement.

The collection also features a large selection of easy to wear lycra styles re-developed into show stopping evening gowns and elegant tops. Sequins, soft lamé velvets with a glossy, water shine, fluid satin fabrics combined with rich red and wine tones, bright neons and pink and soft blushes all form an alluring contrast to the sportive elements of AW19.

PAUL COSTELLOE A/W 2019 – LONDON FASHION WEEK

Day 4 #lfw19

Paul Costelloe was my first show on Monday morning @ Simpsons on the strand. The show location is always at venue that echoes the theme of the show, elegant and inspirational.

This season for Autumn / Winter 2019 -20 , Paul Costelloe shows his mastery of tailoring. With striking, military inspired coats in pure Italian wool, they lead a collection full of rich colour, reminiscent of the Tsars and a homecoming from War, an escape from austerity and what is to come…

The military looks opened the show with striking coats, jackets styled with latex trousers, shorts and statement jewellery by NJO designs.   

            

            

         

 

Opulent, mill-engineered velvet, corduroy with lavish handle, in autumnal shades of gold and claret, add to an array of flower strewn day to evening pieces, including pencil skirts with over-sized Aran Knitwear, day dresses in subtle woven patterns and aristocratric inspired long, billowing gowns fit for a princess.

               

This season, Paul Costelloe Bags introduce a collection of substantial leather pieces, with a decidedly military feel, including crossovers, satchels and belt bags with brass detail bring this outstanding collection together.
