Love the fuzzy, cosy quality of the clothes, they look extremely wearable yet sporty and elegant.  A tricky combo to pull off, bravo.  Designer Danielle Sherman backed by LVMH and funded by Bono and Ali Hewson managed well and reminded me a little of Phoebe Philo’s Celine.

Very excited by Coach, this their first season introducing a clothing line designed beautifully by Stuart Vevers who was at LVMH’s Loewe label.  He based his thinking on true Americana, wonderfully wearable, witty, leathery and superbly cut.  Great bags and even greater boots and shoes, can’t wait.

VICTORIA BECKHAM

Lovely clean lines, elegant and modern.  Exquisite tailoring and love the chunky gold chains on the divine coats and coat dresses.  Well done team Beckham and I am thinking that our lovey friend Susanne Tide-Frater might have had a good deal to do with concept and execution.  Well done.

PRABAL GURUNG

New to me but Gurung, a Nepalese designer, first appeared in 2009 with his first runway collection.  He studied in New Dehli at the National Institute of Fashion Technology and then in NY at Parsons. Now an American citizen he is most definitely on the map.  Loved his chunky deconstructed knits over chiffon and silk skirts that showed a fair amount of leg, cute. Gorgeous colour combinations and some very clever glam tailoring. Me likey.

We’re now ready and waiting for LFW!

L’Wren Scott 

We were interested to see what L’Wren Scott was up to as we loved her collection last season which we felt had really gained direction and confidence. Here are some pieces from S/S 14 which to us seems to be leaning more and more towards couture!!? Lovely…

Peter Pilotto

We also noticed that Peter Pilotto seems to fit nicely between Mary Katrantzou and Christopher Kane. Here are some of the looks that we picked out.

Christopher Kane 

Christopher Kane presented a huge collection with various themes running through it, here are some of the pieces that we loved, especially loving the heavy heavy shiny shiny satins this season, rich and luxurious but edgy.

We noticed that quite a few designers had created interesting showcases this season. We thought that Anya Hindmarch and co created a great presentation for her latest collection. Take a look!
