London Fashion Week F/W '13: Burberry Prorsum, Clements Ribeiro, Duro Olowu, Holly Fulton, Jean-Pierre Braganza, Joseph, KTZ, Peter Pilotto
I'm hardly ever into Burberry Prorsum, unless they're doing something a little punky/gothic, but I really enjoyed the plastic (vinyl?) pieces, and all the different textures and patterns used this time around. My absolute favorite is the khaki trench with leopard print sleeves. If I had to wear a trench coat, it'd be that one.
Of note: Kitten heels, pencil skirts, fabrics with shine, and leopard print, of course.
Good ol' Holly Fulton, always bringing the geometric patterned hotness. The cube print shown on the first two skirts is one of my absolute favorite patterns/optical illusions. I guess that's the neuroscientist in me talking, because who has favorite optical illusions? Anyway...
Of note: Cube print illusion (H&M had some pieces this past fall with this print, and you can often find it in other high street stores), all over prints with black to anchor the outfit.
My fault, I accidentally wrote "Jean-Paul" on the picture, when it should be "Jean-Pierre". My apologies! No apologies needed for the clothes though, with their geometric designs that bring to mind a pagan feel, along with those awesome deer-head necklaces.
If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I have become a huge fan of KTZ, and also that it is everywhere in the K-pop world. Back to the collection at hand, what really caught my eye was the playing card imagery (best seen in the bottom row, middle two outfits). Playing card imagery is a favorite of mine, since I collect playing cards, so I was really excited to see it in some outlandish, yet relatively wearable clothing. In addition, I feel that it's a continuation of KTZ's previous use of tarot imagery (see the first outfit) in their men's collection.
Of note: Bold -- and I mean bold - playing/tarot card imagery, oily leather, layered bottoms, volume.
