London Fashion Week: Streetstyle, Technicolour

So, to start the week, we have a colour injection to wake you up after the weekend. We’re almost through our mega post-a-thon of London Fashion Week coverage. Hope you’ve enjoyed all of the posts. We’ve had a fine time pulling them all together and deciding how best to categories all of the images.

After Friday’s post on the predicable, but still stunning selection of monochrome spotted on the global fashion crowd, we now look at the polar opposite direction. I think this was probably the most colourful LFW we have ever seen, including all for the fabulously eye popping prints we’ve posted too. We really love the ultra bright shifts and sweaters showing how to work the new season colour blocking, those brilliantly bright accessories that just added so much to an outfit, the odd colour clash and the complete exuberance that this added to our LFW experience.

Accessories: Colour Blocked

The passion for colour continues strongly into Autumn, and we’ve been spotting some great brilliantly colour blocked accessories. Its a great way to refer to a trend without going head to toe. Instead you can choose head or toe! Bold striping and contrast colour panels create a strongly graphic statement that we find hard to resist. This selection of images come from the ‘Accessories’ report that we are putting together to be issued this month. We’ll be sharing some more highlights tomorrow.

London Fashion Week, Streetstyle: Colour Pops!

So, we’re straight in there with some pictures from the first few days of London Fashion Week. We’ve decided to have a look at one of the biggest stories of this Spring, and one that looks to have a long term impact on the way we’ll be wearing colour. From the Spring ’11 catwalks (check Jil Sander as the perfect example) colour blocking strong brights is a key direction. Translate this to the reality of a Spring day, and you have the ‘Colour Pop!’. Its the way to give this trend a nod and a wink without blinding those around you. Balance brights with softer shades- but we have to say that those who have chosen not to go the easy black backdrop route look the most interesting. Another really workable option is to rock some boldly coloured accessories.

Is bright the new black? Only kidding! Bright is just a great way to switch it up, grab a ray of sunshine and make a step change into Spring joy.

Streetstyle: Colour Blocking

So, after bombarding you with our fabulous ‘Reports’ last week, we’ve decided to treat you to some great streetsyle this week. Asta, our intrepid reporter, has be braving the cold and hunting down some great looks across London town. Thanks Asta!

Here’s our first for the week, and what more is there to say but “Wow!”. This lady has certainly taken the colour blocking trend to heart and is rocking it in a wonderfully committed way. There’s something not just a little late 80’s about this look too, with perhaps a dash of ‘Working Girl’ blended with a splash of ‘Nine to Five’. Maybe its just the silhouette that’s making me think that though. Anyways, loving it and hope you do too!
