PHOENIX gets the lowdown on LFW Day 1 from Womenswear Editor Nicole Smallwood…
First things first, what did you wear? An All Saints leather jacket over an Alexander Wang dress, with Karl Lagerfeld sunglasses, Birkenstock shoes and a Whistles ruck sack.
Any gossip? Rosie Fortescue from Made In Chelsea had 3 outfit changes before 3 o’clock.
Most-spotted accessory? Literally everyone has the Moschino fries phone case right now, they’re everywhere!
Recurring trends? There’s still a strong sports inspired influence coming through in fabrics and cuts.
Favourite shows? Well, two, but for very different reasons! Amanda Wakeley’s all white collection was so chic, wearable and classic with a sports twist. I want everything! Fyodor Golan’s reference to new rave culture is prevalent: fleuro stripes, colour, and texture… What’s not to love?! I also enjoyed the McQ presentation – metallics are back for spring/summer and shinier than ever. To-die-for, wearable clothes for the girl who’s a little bit if a rock chick at heart.
