This London Fashion Week was all the range when it came to Street Style. As always, London bloggers, photographers, journalists and fashion enthusiasts from all sectors of the Fashion industry, assented the grounds of Somerset House to show us their unique, electric take on Street Style.
Hello Leather Chick
In mix with the continual love for all things PU and leather – the classic admiration for mixing and matching seems to be the key tool to completing a casual day to evening look. In contrast with heavy beads and vibrant colour – this outfit makes putting together casual apparel, easy. In accompaniment of print framed sunnies, heavy belt strap hand on and open toe pixie heels – showing that essential redder than red toenail decor, for added fierce appeal.
LOndon Fashion WeekPretty Pixie
Much sought after LFW Street Style icon Stella Kattermann, is a firm favourite in the style stakes – season after season she presents us with something new and uniquely illustrative. This LFW Stella wore a tweed meets wool two piece number – with matching turqoiuse tone bowler hat to accompany. Signature fringe and tiny ankle brogues made this an eye catching yet minimalist look.
Elie SaabElie SaabA Mixed Affair
Every so often you come across a particular style that seems too eclectic for words – illustrating a multitude of styles that play in perfect harmony with one’s individual persona. Incorporating a fine mix of Pringle of Scotland inspired knits, tye dye print leggings and sophisticated spec delight, this street style snapper allowed his identity to take front seat. In rife enthusiasm of multi coloured nails, understated flip flops and casual three quarter shorts – this is character driven street style, personified.
Bold and Friendly
With a penchant love for unconventional knitwear and platform enthused Chuck Berries, this was one street styler who made being fearless his best friend. In contrasting accompaniment of skin tight PU skinnies, completing his look with some simple colour framed sunnies – there was no doubt as to what the focal point of this unique outfir was.
Aztec Love Prints played popular with an array of street stylers this season – with geometric composed fine design displayed in full glory. This BFC Council insider showed off her enthusiasm for sporting the much loved midi length skirt of multi pastel lime green, pink and sky blue. Teamed with an eighties enthused denim number, vintage high collared chiffon shirt and strap over wedges. Dip dye motivation was also eveident here, with adorable pink on blonde colour contrast.
A Gent’s Code
Taking a more street to street casual demure to Fashion Week – these two international photographers made combining the casual apparel flair of day to evening look, effortless. Comprising a style defined look of classic straight line and rocker ripped style jeans, Topman signature blazers, knit scarfs and grain grey cowboy ankle boots – a casual gentleman’s style code, indeed.
Keeping my eyes and ears firmly pealed for what we have all been expecting – the triumph of a Lady Gaga inspired look. With a variety of ‘glamourous Gaga’ influenced style elements on full show – this style number particularly caught my eye. Indelible earrings that possesed a much desired bolder than bold look, statement making brooch accessories with intricate hand made detail, mini bomber style jacket number in glowing gold, accompanied by shimmering wide, full length trousers. Glowing to say the least!
Bold impressions with one tone practice. Eye catching to say the least, exploring the fashion elements of hip belt chains, studded platforms, in subtle accompaniment of that classic Gucci handbag. The deep neckline denim corset emphasised the sexiness and originality of the outfit. With the length of lycra highlighting the a line shape of her body. A perfect example of optimising your shape to the max!
One of the most growing style trends is dual layering, engaging a strong ethnic feel. With the recent popularity of African Fashion Week, many fashion style enthusiasts are taking the irrevescent beauty of African style and moulding this, into their own outfits. Presenting silks, satins and chiffon layers with the richness of bold colour. Style Elie Saab defined by bountifully patterned head scarfs and a mirage of intricate, heavy designed jewellery. Definitely one of the most photographed and admired looks on show.
