A model at the Anya Hindmarch AW14 catwalk
1. Be inspired by Bacofoil
Perhaps excited on the prospect of the recently announced Mars One Big Brother-style show to pick out candidates to live to tell the tale the red planet, designers at London Fashion Week went all space-age on Tuesday. Crisp silver foil fabric made an appearance at Simone Rocha (styled with a furry top) and Ashley Williams (on dungarees and bonnets). Just don’t stand too almost about the microwave.
2. Oh, Anya! We adore you
Anya Hindmarch’s fashion week presentations are known for his or her humour, and this season’s was the appropriate one yet. How nice to look the fad pack laughing for all of the RIGHT reasons. Models and male dancers traversed moving walkways with shopping trolleys and baskets, double basses were played by hands with out a body and hands waved from the ground on the end of the show. Oh, and the baggage? Take your choose from an entire host of grocery chic: Daz, Cornflakes and McVities Digestive biscuits all made an appearance, however it was the Tony the Tiger Frosties bag everyone was lusting after.
3. Flats get furry
Barely a show passed in London that didn’t feature flats; Tuesday’s were fluffy, a bit like inside-out UGGs. Sheepskin was the name of the sport at Marques’Almeida, with bright pink and blue lace-ups in addition to dazzling white, while Osman collaborated with Manolo Blahnik for his gorgeous dappled desert boots.
4. Petite models klaxon!
Models are very tall. Most of the InStyle fashion team aren’t very tall. So we were delighted to look models under 5’8” at the catwalk at Meadham Kirchoff. And forget all that nonsense in regards to the clothes “not hanging well” unless you’ve the peak: these girls looked great.
5. An early night
Because we’re off to Milan!! Watch this space for daily updates from the Italian fashion capital.
