London Fashion Week: Back to Black

So, we go from yesterday’s London Fashion Week post about brilliant brights to today’s post where we look at those fashionistas who were rocking beautiful black at Somerset House.

Key to keeping this looking interesting, we think, is the combination of layering textures plus a pop of contrast and bold accessories. Black looks clean and tailored in many of these looks, which for us is the key direction for Autumn Winter 2010 and into Spring Summer 2011. There is a new minimalist mood in the air, which blends perfectly with a renewed love for ladylike creating a fresh aesthetic that is both soft and strong.

Friday Fun- Boy, Oh Boy!

A very quick post for you before we dash out and head off to London Fashion Week at Somerset House.

I spotted this at Urban Outfitters, and I just had to share with you. Boy London seems to be back! This was THE brand to be seen in if you were a fashion mover and shaker in the late 80’s, in the mix with anything from Demob, Bodymap, oh and Chelsea Girl was a personal favourite of mine. I regularly headed out to the local nightspot wearing a Hunza swimsuit with a Boy London jersey rah rah skirt hoiked on over the top. Its a miracle I didn’t catch pneumonia really!

The aviator was big news then too, but hottest was a satin version inspired by the MA1– ideally a cropped variation on that theme. What goes around and comes around! The saying goes ‘If you wore it the first time around, don’t wear it again’ and I think in the case of Boy and the Aviator, I’m seriously tempted!
