Eudon Choi's collection was all about unique abstract geometry and settle florals along with a fall-appropriate colour palette. At Daks' we enjoyed the modern twist of the classic british style with the leather details. We really liked the, literally, eye catching eye makeup which complemented nicely the style of both collections without being distracting. 

 Bora Aksu's show started off with almost a sportwear sense to it but, soon enough, it turned out as one of the most romantic ones we've seen so far. Embossed flowers in cold toned, lilac,sheer, chiffon dresses, along with -kind of- sexier transparrent black pieces; Even though it had a bit of everything, it was a rather ncely executed collection. Same goes for the Felder Felder duo; a quite feminine and sexy -not so romantic- collection with black transparencies and lacey details.

Lastly (from Day 1) we have the quite different shows of  J. JS Lee and Fyodor Golan. The first one was based on minimalism with a few details making the difference. We loved the loose lines, the amazing shoes and the feminine-yet-androgynous essense of the show enhanced by the choice of the bold red-toned lipsticks. Fyodor Golan's collection was probably the complete opposite; With mixed prints, materials and various other styling elements, their show was deffinetely an interesting one to watch. With magenda dresses over PVC looking boots and My Little Pony designs paired with puffer coat looking materials this show is a must watch for many different reasons.

Emilia Wickstead's & Jasper Conran's collections were easy not only to watch but to love as well. Based on knee length skirts and feminine aesthetic, both runways were filled with classy attires, based on their simple lines and materials rather than the almost-non-existent prints. 


Lucas Narcimento's and Mother of Pearl's runways were probably the only ones so far with sportswear looking hints. With a bit of floral prints mixed with amazing loose outwear lines, leather and fur details, both collections had the street style credit we love. They were fresh and impecably styled, without the hair or the makeup getting in the way.


Simone Rocha's collection was certainly an interesting one to watch. With prints on transparencies, intriguing designed pieces and odd looking hairstyles this show was the perfect example of contemporary bristish style. Henry Holland's collection for House of Holland was exactly what we expected; a lot of colourblocking based on a vivid palette, classic prints -mostly tartan and stripes- mixed together, fury details, and these amazing black silk neck scarves tightly wrapped which gave a classic edge to the colourful pieces.

Julien Macdonald's show was 50 shades of sultry (there we said it), with a lot of form fitted transparencies and collars among all the other sexy details. We loved the glossy looking deep oxblood red lips on the almost bare faces along with the sliked back hair. On the same note, when it comes to beauty -minus the lipstick- was the Women's collection by J.W. Anderson; with a lot of prints and colours mixed together, this collection may not be the best one to wear on a day-to-day basis as a whole, but it certainly had pieces that we would love to see hanging in our wardrobes. We especially loved all the leather pieces, from the feminine mini dresses to the maxi coats.
