Frills, thrills and feminine silhouettes
|Frills, futurism & vibrant colour at Fyodor Golan|
Fyodor Golan's women were as usual, fragile but at the same time fearless and seductive. The duo presented a collection inspired by futurism and collaborated with Transformers to create looks that were full of frills, vibrant colours and floral designs. Completing the looks perfectly were stacked wooden platforms by Kat Maconie that together created a sporty Geisha in geometric prints and floral printed patent leathers with neon detailing.

Side by side with pastels, blue and nude, it looks like green and yellow dominated the catwalks this season and seemed to be the hottest shades. At Christopher Raeburn we could definitely spot a sea of green and olives in forms of multiple military-inspired ensembles, together with kimono wraps in yellow, blue and white. This collection didn’t join the feminine celebration on the London fashion week catwalks, and was more on the tomboy side. Bora Aksu’s collection was inspired by memories of the lush garden full of lemon, orange and pomegranate trees at his family’s country house. This very personal collection was an homage to colour and light, with feminine silhouettes and a sophisticated vintage feel to the designs. Along with the egg yellow we could see powder pink, burnt orange and fuchsia.

While most garments were simple and wearable there was a glamorous touch with sequins and embroidered pieces, that made the muted browns and greens glimmer and shine over the models. What will make its way to the high streets is always the hottest question, but it is safe to say the colours we saw this season on the runway and the feminine silhouettes that were seen everywhere, are looks that we are happy to embrace.
