Anya Hindmarch

sibling86-Recovered286

Imagination and creativity are never in shortage at Anya Hindmarch and this season was no exception. Speeding down the M25 catwalk came models printed in signs we all know but perhaps never thought could be so fashionable. Due to the vast amount of time spent, by Anya Hindmarch, on the M25 she decided to find the motorways beauty and use it as the inspiration for her collection.

Snakeprint leather bags with roadworks warnings, fur scarves with no entry signs, long length bomber jackets with speed camera logos; the muse behind the collection was immanent in every look. After last season’s use of familiar household logos and items it was hard to imagine how Hindmarchwould be able overtake this, but she did it in the fast lane. With accessories and ready-to-wear that is so artistic and inspired, Anya Hindmarch brought London Fashion Week to a stand still.

I just wanted to thank you and the whole of the Fault team for having me on board this season, it has been a pleasure and I hope that you have been pleased with my efforts. If there is ever anyway that I can be involved with the magazine please let me know.

Ashish

sibling86-Recovered286

Sequined street walkers took to the catwalk at Ashish on the final day of London Fashion Week. Provocatively clad in thigh-high red hooker heels with trashy dyed fringe jobs and hooped earrings, these girls were working the runway just as hard.

Sequined camisoles and knickerbocker shorts with laced edges brushed loosely across the models’ skin and spaghetti straps dropped off the shoulder. Lace bralets peeped out from bomber jackets made up of a patchwork of different animal print fur. Sequin camouflage cropped joggers were trimmed with fur and tie dye denim was dotted with studs. Sexy, trashy and oh so cool.

The inspiration for the show was a quote from Jane Fonda’s character in Klute, New York prostitute Bree Daniels: “You know there’s nothing wrong, nothing… nothing is wrong. I think the only way that any of us can ever be happy is to let it all hang out… you know… do it all, and fuck it.”

Emilio de la Morena

sibling86-Recovered286

Watching the Emilio de la Morena AW15 show was like playing ‘spot the red carpet dress’ mixing up some of my all time favourite fabrics, styles and colour combinations. The womanly and sensual floor length dresses oozed sex appeal, with slashes to the thigh and cut just-so to fit the body perfectly. Complicated structures formed around the body to create a simple shape, but with intricate panelling and detailing. Sheer cut-out panels played with bare skin and concealment, offering just the right amount of flesh on show to still be sophisticated. A-Symetry was played with, so some shoulders were on display on one side and on the other, the entire arm would be wrapped in fabric. This heavy play on ‘show and tell’ was utterly desirable, flattering and appealing to most women who want to look modern and sexy. Think Gwyneth Paltrow or Angelina Jolie.

Colours were deep, dark, glistening and dazzled against the dark background of the blackened out catwalk set. The metallics sizzled and dark, rich blues and crimson smouldered. Subtle and elegant, Emilio de la Morena presented covetable glamour this season.

Erdem

sibling86-Recovered286

Erdem is one of our go-to labels for opulent and luxurious British-inspired design. Always heavy on the craftsmanship with stunning details and unusual, intricate needlework, there’s always something to be found that resonates within FAULT’s aesthetic.

This season the 50’s were directly referenced within the set design and dresses made from brocade, ruched tweed, shiny silk and trimmed with oriental, floral fabric sashayed down the catwalk. Pieces of note were the caped dresses, the hardy winter coat deftly merging into a green silk evening coat and the exquisite cut-out lacework dresses in bold jewel-toned hues, instantly demanding to be made into a red carpet moment.

Patterned details on dresses were formed but with some distressed edging and loose, frayed seams, continuing well from the previous seasons influences. Overall an ‘undone’ but structured feel reigned the Erdem catwalk, less serious than last season yet still tailored, fitted and immaculate on presentation. Shapes were more on the modern side, with the pattern and the embroidery referencing the historic influences that Erdem favours and simple shapes allowing the embellishment to do most of the talking.

Christopher Kane

sibling86-Recovered286

Sex was on the menu at Christopher Kane for AW, but not any type of sex, this season Kane gave us ‘Lovers’ Lace’. Inspired by the team’s recent life drawing classes. Sprawled and intertwined bodies were depicted across panels on dresses with zigzags and slashes of skin representing the ‘electricity’ of intertwined bodies and the frisson of a lovers liaison.

Colours were rich, dark, and luxurious with flashes of bright metallic colour and red lining on some pieces to loosen up the more structured styling of the suits, the pencil skirts and the more structured dresses.

Complicated, yet wearable and innovative, Christopher Kane gave us another season of all that we love about the designer, being able to surprise us, catch us off guard and yet remain of interest to both the buyers and the fashion press.

Peter Pilotto

sibling86-Recovered286

Connect Four, Snakes and Ladders and Ludo were the fun board games that inspired this sophisticated Peter Pilotto AW15 collection, that was anything but childish. Slicked hair and orange eyeshadow walked the catwalk to video game infused house that, throughout, constantly reminded us of the inspiration for this collection. White, brown, green and blue were clashed with neon’s against black thigh slit midi skirts and high neck jumpsuits that really looked like a 90’s video game screen.

The final dress was everything a final dress should be, it pulled together the elements seen previously in the collection and added even more wow to an already incredible show. Halter-necked with a cut out triangle on the chest, pinched at the waist with a contrasting brown and an orange paint stripe across a full skirt; this piece was like a bonus life in the board game inspired show.

The clever play between colour, textiles and shape created a collection that once again proved that Peter Pilotto is one of the most stand out designers at London Fashion Week. The playful element to the collection was fun and spirited, showing the scope in appeal of this collection; we can envisage it on any woman and especially ourselves!

Vivienne Westwood 

sibling86-Recovered286

The Vivienne Westwood show had a wearability that reflected not only the streetwear influence that has always permeated her label, but also referenced sportswear. Light fabrics, jumpsuits and shorts, gym socks, racing stripes; through day and evening looks there was an ease to the silhouette and cut of this collection. The models walked with ease (not always the case with Westwood past, cc: Naomi ’93) and though always heavily layered, this season’s looks consisted of separates that would actually make sense beyond the eccentric intricacy of Westwood’s famous assemblages. Prints were as strong as ever, and especially sharp- thick geometric prints veered between sleek athletic modernity, and of Mother Nature; exotic animal prints, kaleidoscopic nature patterns and at one stage, peacock feathers. The show notes voiced Westwood’s support for the Green Party, reiterating her stance against our current consumption, and this aesthetic nod to the environment was a charming and surprisingly restrained way of expressing her ever-present political chagrin.

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi

sibling86-Recovered28

Dark romance was the theme for this year’s collection by Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi for Preen with the designer duo setting out to give the 70s hippie chic an urban update.

 

Lose, boxy shapes were dominant in this AW season with an element of attempted juxtaposition throughout. The success of contrasting silhouettes and shapes usually relies on matriculate tailoring, something that was slightly lacking in the season’s Preen show for me. However, the recurring pop colour through many of the collections pieces made the collection feel colourful despite the dark base of most pieces. Personal favourites were the blue floral dresses at the end of the show as they posed an interesting contrast to the rest of the collection and felt distinctly summery despite being part of an AW collection.

 

Overall the collection felt a little too full of ideas – Thornton and Bregazzi in the past have proven to be not only full of ideas but also to be able to throw a lot of different ideas into a collection. However, this season it felt as though the pair had trouble changeling their ideas into clear and coherent silhouettes and colour pallets.

Mulberry

sibling86-Recovered28

With a brand spanking new creative director in place the expectations for Mulberry’s AW15 collection were certainly set high. With Johnny Coca arriving at the English fashion house in July the Mulberry design team took inspiration from English manor houses of the Georgian era. Mouldings, stuccos and architectural decorations acted as the basis for prints and embroideries with a recurring theme of neo-classical filigree motif used throughout the collection.

Once again the house emphasised their love of artisan craft as they have in the last year, showcasing their artisan works at festivals such as Wilderness. The intricate details and sharpness we saw this season further showed Mulberry’s approach to their collection through artisan craft.

Mulberry also took the opportunity to showcase their newest bag: The Roxette. Seen in an aray of colours and different kinds of leathers, the bag certainly has the appeal of sturdy yet delicate kind of companion that Mulberry has done so well in the past. This season was a big departure from what we saw last season and it will be interesting to see how the brand takes shape under its new creative leadership.

Known for his bold, geometric designs and architectural shapes paired with body con shapes, David Koma has well and truly perfected through the seasons. With 60’s style shifts, leather separates and cut-out, form fitting jumpsuits, the David Koma woman looked badass. Gothic Barbie seems to be a strong new direction for him, with delicate flared sleeves, saucy top to bottom zippers and sheer panel details, oh and the ultimate bed hair. I really want to be a David Koma girl #justsaying

Jenny Slungaard

Issa

sibling86-Recovered28

Jamie O’Hare’s debut collection for Issa was a fairly rock n roll inspired affair, all cutout panels, jacquard animal prints, draped fabric and fringing, man there was a lot of fringing! Whilst being fairly reminiscent of designs put out by Cavalli, Ford and McCartney, the collection was still polished and totally commercial. Gorgeous prints, a heavy use of black and white with pops of red, blue and yellow and draped fabrics, the collection retained the signature Issa look but a sexier new direction with O’Hare at the helm. With subtle cutouts, sheer yet strategically placed panels, and that generous fringing all protecting your modesty, it’s just the kind of outfit your mum would approve of.

Matthew Williamson

sibling86-Recovered28

There were more than just stars on the front row at Matthew Williamson as he showcased the aw15 collection inspired by the signs of the zodiac. A fuchsia satin blouse and electric blue satin dress were embroidered with gold zodiac symbols and a heavily embroidered blue evening gown featured mystical swirls amongst the glittering beadwork.

It wouldn’t be a Matthew Williamson show without some bright, feminine prints and we weren’t left wanting. Next season’s offering includes a purple leopard print jumpsuit, maroon pegged trousers with wispy botanical flowers in marigold and sky blue and the same floral design in varying shades of red on an evening coat with fur trimmed sleeves and a floor-length evening dress with thigh high split.

Also taking inspiration from 70’s bohemian silhouettes, maxi length skirts and dresses billowed around the models’ legs and button-through styles added to the sex appeal.

We think the vibrant colours, dashes of regal gold and roaring leopard print will most appeal to Leos next season!

Temperley

sibling86-Recovered28

Make way for the African Queen of Temperley London next season! Glamorous, flowing evening looks came in burnt orange, bronze, yellow, white and black in distinct African prints. Animal print-like chevrons and thick rows of triangles, diamonds and circles were seen on contemporary culottes and long, flower trumpet shape skirts and an armadillo skin gold jacket all made for a refreshingly luxurious take on the theme.

Long, skinny evening scarves matched each outfit in print and fabric and provided a seamless link between the African-inspired styles and the 1930s concept that ran throughout as well. This came in the form of dainty, flat slipper shoes, double-breasted black jumpsuits, spaghetti strap, sequined evening dresses and velvet art-deco shapes on chiffon dresses.

Tunics and suit jackets were smart daytime pieces but, as usual, Temperley’s evening looks are some of the most covetable around.

Topshop Unique

sibling86-Recovered28

This season Topshop Unique had a distinct feeling of ‘posh’ about its collection. Creative director Kate Phelan showed us what she thinks the well-bred (and the not so well-bred) countryside-moved-to-London Chelsea girls of 2015 should be wearing: clean, sophisticated, tailored dresses, pants and skirts teamed with big knits, fur and feathers and pieces of leather. The thistle and dandelion prints that weaved their way throughout the show were unusual and interesting while still echoing the privileged upbringing of the Topshop Unique girl.

The collection felt slightly safer than previous seasons as well as a lot more grown up. More importantly Phelan’s latest collection had that essence of cool that only English party girls seem to possess; the ability to just get out of bed, run their fingers through their hair, touch up their mascara and throw on the first thing they see, seemingly without a care in the world. Cara and Kate are the prime examples of this quintessentially and apparent laisse-faire attitude that you cannot buy, one is simply born with it. Now for AW 15 you can attempt to at least look the part, even if this means spending a good amount of time looking like you just woke up like this.

Phoebe English

sibling86-Recovered28

Dust sheets in the corners and wires around the walls, the BFC presentation space became the perfect showcase for the Autumn/Winter collection of designer Phoebe English. Serious and smoky; this season the Phoebe English girl is not to be messed with.

The looks were monochromatic and intricate with layers of shrimp netting, tulle and PVC that created a killer collaboration of textiles. Oversized hoodies and shiny worker boots were made feminine with black hair gems and sequin trimmings.

Collars up and hair pinned the Phoebe English Autumn/Winter 15 collection is all about the details in the construction. The most iconic of the designs were the mesh trousers that amplified the vast amount of construction and creation thatPhoebe English never fails to bring to her work.

Translucent netting created looks that were like real life fashion x-rays. A collection infused with a dark confidence, Phoebe English confirmed once again that her widely recognised talent is always moving in the right direction.

Pringle of Scotland

sibling86-Recovered28

A brand with over 200 years of heritage that is rooted within every collection, this season Pringle Of Scotland provided a collection that was contemporary and minimal. Whilst not breaking boundaries this collection may break the bank, we predict that sales of this collection will be high. The usual autumnal colour palette of navy’s, greys, burgundy’s and nudes was used to create a collection providing stylish basics and classy staples that have the ability to add finesse to every woman’s wardrobe.

Embossed leather, suede, lace and mohair were amongst the textures intertwined to create pieces that showcased the high design capability of the brand. An interjection of leopard print and sheer knitted skirts added an underlying sense glamour and allure to an otherwise casual chic show, showcasing the brands ability over the years to provide pieces for every one of their loyal customers.

This artisanal collection was modest and clean, and a representation of PringleOf Scotlands place within the industry. Would we wear the collection? Hell yes.

Jael Fowakes

 

Jonathan Saunders

sibling86-Recovered28

Jonathan Saunders’ newest collection can probably best be describes as bright and beautiful. His technicolour AW15 collection once more shows of the Scottish designer’s love of colour and might also be a reflection of his current mood having recently secured a nice backing of a private investor to further expand his ready-to-wear line. Other designers might have struggled mixing and matching colours the way Saunders did, but you can tell that he has had a lot of practice in experimenting and playing with strong colours.

Graphic shapes and patterns mixed with precise tailoring gave the pieces a certain raffinesse while leaving us with a distinct feeling of the fun and funky 60’s. Teamed with knee-high laced boots the Saunders’ woman is both confident and outgoing, as she certainly wouldn’t go unnoticed. I loved the accessories, the nude lace-up boots in particular, that accentuated the pieces throughout and. Overall the collection certainly reflecting Saunders’ theme for this season: Joy and optimism.
