London Fashion Week Favourites: AW16

As I didn't intern at or attend London Fashion Week this season but instead sat feeling envious as I watched the Snapchat stories and Instagram videos of those sat on the front row of various different catwalks, I thought I'd do a blog post like my last, showing my favourite collections from LFW AW16. Although I feel like there isn't much newness emerging this season so far (I have been underwhelmed by certain designers who I expected more from), LFW usually sees more risk-taking than NYFW and it certainly didn't disappoint. You can always count on London for the weird and wonderful, am I right? Here is my take on what that 'wonderful' is this season:

The overall essence of Eudon Choi's AW16 offering is very modern, thanks to the colour blocking and sharp tailoring. Silhouettes are more crisp and fitted than the designers SS16 collection yet not uninteresting, with trousers slit from just below the knee downwards creating a unique shape when walking. Though I usually avoid pastel colours, the pairing of pale purple and pink with navy blue works well and adds lightness to the dark hues commonly worn in autumn/winter. Apart from the random addition of a green print and a camel two-piece (which admittedly is gorgeous), the collection is consistent and sophisticated.

New York Fashion Week Favourites: AW16

The collections shown at New York Fashion Week are always amongst my all-time favourites. Don't get me wrong, you'll still catch me scrolling through the images of the various catwalks from London, Paris and Milan too, but the effortlessly chic (yet never without a unique twist) New York style is right up my street. What a dream it would be to attend one day. For now, though, I thought I would share my favourite AW16 collections from NYFW as I did for SS16. 

I loved Marissa Webb's SS16 collection and it's safe to say she's succeeded again. Layering done to perfection and a selection of wearable prints topped off with black knee-high or ankle boots. My ultimate Autumn/Winter wardrobe dream - if only I could afford to purchase all of it!
