London Fashion Week: Day 5

Yesterday was the fifth and final day at London Fashion Week and I started my day off at Vauxhall Fashion Scout with a presentation from Leutton Postle before ending with catwalks from Aminaka Wilmont and the three Fashion Fringe finalists I had interviewed earlier here.

Below are some of my highlights from yesterday. I hope you have enjoyed my coverage of LFW - normal blogging will resume tomorrow! X

Luxury knitwear label Leutton Postle is a collaboration between long time friends Sam Leutton and Jenny Postle, and was first launched in 2001.

As predicted the S/S 13 season saw plenty of bright colour combinations and layering of textures and influences.

Geometric shapes clashed with intricate South American and Native American like detailing such as beading, fringes and tassells which appeared on tunic dresses, shirts, wrap tops and crop tops.

On the bottom half flared trousers in similar tones led the way, paired with glittery heels. Accessories were a cool selection of fringed clutch bags.

My second catwalk of the day was from design duo Aminaka Wilmont. The S/S 13 collection entitled "Threicae" was inspired by the three tiered layering of perfume. 

The collection was very feminine and very beautiful with prints including rose petals, monochrome stripes, and ombré colour techniques. Slinky jersey dresses were paired with angular leather jackets with the odd tailored trouser and shirt combination.

The models were adorned with temporary rose transfer tattoos, whilst their hair appeared shaved at the sides thanks to some clever blonde tinting. Combined with the blunt fridges it all looked very Lisbeth Salander - if she was into florals that is.

Gathered necklines and ruched waists were another feature across dresses, in tones of aqua blue, garden rose pink and smokey grey's. Just like the Jean-Pierre Braganza show that I reported on earlier in the week these designs were incredibly wearable and I am totally sold!

Look out for more posts later from the Fashion Fringe catwalk finale and the Inspired by Minnie Mouse showcase.
