I was lucky enough to meet the lovely Ivania from Love Aesthetic today who is here from Amsterdam to brighten up LFW. I admire her trademark white colour pallette and the crisp lines she encapsulates in her outfits, a minimal look that not many can master and which is far removed from the predicable "blogger" attire
Antipodium at the London Film Museum
The 10 am start to the Antipodium show may have meant an usually early Saturday rise for me but the show and venue definitely made up for it. Just by Covent Garden's cobbles, the catacomb like basement of the Film museum provided the perfect way to show the collection. Seating was scattered around the dramatically lit room and made everyone front row, models going on a pacour like walk through the space that allowed a close look at the collection. It may not have been the most conventional set up but definitely one that made the designs shine.
The Art of Clutches
Whether irridicent, see-through or with oil spill effect, clutches have been transformed into carriable pieces of art and were used to real statement effect around Somerset house today. They may not always be the most practical method of carrying your belongings ( the Christopher Kane only holding all but a lipstick) but they are an easy way to add an extravagant feature to an outfit that doesn't overwhelm the rest of your outfit and forces you to rethink which essentials you really need on you.
XXL Feathers at Issa
Dramatic fedoras adorned with feathers were the standout out accessory at Issa tonight. Adding old school glamour to beautifully embellished dresses, rich teal, orange and red tones and and flowy maxi shapes these hats were the perfect finishing touch to the luxurious look of the evening.
As a bit of dip dye addict I absolutely love the mix of purple and blue tones tones , working wonderfully here in contrast with the bright red beret. Combining two shades is something I have never thought about and something i shall now try in my next Bleach experiment.
