For any blogger, you’re outfit always matters, but i’ve found over the last couple of years comfort also comes into it. Sure it’s great to wear some 6inch stilettos, but believe me its no fun for your feet on those cobbled pavements at Somerset House! Also staying warm too is important, particularly with the ever increasing amount of Street style photographers asking to to take your picture, you can be there for hours posing! So this year, I decided it would be all about the coat, and let the coat dictate the outfit.

So this is me bright an early Friday morning, in my baby blue coat, and then rest just flowed…

London Fashion Week AW 15: Day1

So as some of you long time followers know, I live for London Fashion Week, its like Santa coming to town twice in one year! I feel very privileged that I am able to go and experience the collections first hand. It’s also great to see how some of these young designers have grown over the last few years, and how their career has developed. H

The first show I attended on Friday last week, was J. JS Lee. Originally from Seoul, Korea, she came to London to take the Post Graduate Pattern Course at Central Saint Martin in 2007.  And after her two years of working as a pattern cutter at Kisa London she came back to study at Central Saint Martin for her MA degree.

Inspired by her childhood and in particular the memory of her mother hand-stitching garments, Lee wanted to create a “woman as a bit different and on the eccentric side. She has tomboyish characteristics but as a woman she has a feminine sensitivity, which she brings to her work,” said Lee, on describing her collection. There was a good dose of sexiness here too, gently rippling wide pleats fronting dresses and sinuous silhouettes for knits and lithe long dresses.

After a few hours wait from the morning show, I was off to Eudon Choi. Eudon is an absolute master at outerwear, it’s what he’s built his label on since he launched it back in 2009. Solid leather jackets with geometric configurations inspired by the Japanese architectural movement Metabolism came out and were combined with Seventies flares in wallpaper florals of teal and shocking pink.

Next romance was in the air, with floaty chiffon ladies wafting down the Catwalk, with a Victorian/ seventies edge to them. You almost smell the lilies and the roses. Black gothic and lace territory, filtered into pretty lilacs and opulent gold for pussy-bow-billowing blouses and natty little jackets. As ever, his warrior women marched out in parade for the finale.

Daks

One of my favourites of the day. Do you know I have been wearing tho label since I was eleven, and still have those pieces which I can still squeeze into! This season it stepped away from its usual classic checks, and pushed Daks boundaries into the future. Girls clad in biker caps, natty Sixties colour-blocked shifts and quilted biker jackets and gilets took to the catwalk.

“It’s completely different,” said creative director Filippo Scuffi, a much bolder approach has been taken. There were softer moments too – the tulip printed skirts to contrast the tough biker chick persona that set the scene. And while the proposition seemed a lot bolder overall, that was mostly down to the styling – there were actually plenty of classic and softer pieces among the line-up.

Only a few days to go until I’ll be under the arches at Somerset House for another round of London Fashion Week. So Excited! Until then, lets check out some of the snowy street style at New York Fashion Week, and I can tell you these New Yorkers are fearless, and did not let the less than favourable weather conditions effect their outfit choices. Go girl!

KOR0033.450x6753London Fashion Week will soon be here, but before it comes, lets look at whats been going on in the Streets of Paris for a little inspiration.

What I love about fashion is that anything goes, there are no rules, you set the rules. Never let anyone, or any magazine dictate what you should be wearing, it’s your life, your style, and that’s what makes you unique.

Zara BarouchSince Ms Kardashian has made the cropped top a staple in her wardrobe, I’ve began to take note of what I thought was a bit of a 90’s trend. I decided to pair a bralette with a lace cropped top, and dress it down with some distressed jeans to keep it a little more casual, and a little more Kylie Jenner, than the über glam Kim K.

Paris Haute Couture Highlights

Paris have just had their Haute Couture round of shows, displaying some of the most esquisite pieces, that I’m sure we will be seeing sauntering down red carpet in the near future.

The Chanel show reminded me of My Fair Lady, the floral themes than ran through it were like the flowers from Covent Garden Flower Market, that Eliza Doolittle worked at. The elegant coat, and turn of the century embellished hats were a little like when Eliza became a lady.

armani

Armani is as always flawless. Simple, chic, elegance, with just a hint of a sparkle for the star quality that it possesses. ellie saab

Elie Saab was so pretty, and feminine , with soft shades of nude pink and cream, and some hints of green too!

valentinoValentino reminded me of chic and expensive farm girl from the swiss alps. The pieces individually were very wearable, and it takes the whole boho peasant chic to another level.

There is nothing nicer on a cold and sunny day, than getting some fresh air and going for a nice brisk walk outside.

Today’s look is a very classic Ralph Lauren WASP like kinda look, keeping the paler in neutral shades of camel and white.
