Diverging from the usual girly florals, Erdem AW14 was a little darker and more regal than usual. Texture played a key part, with luxe velvet, fur, metallics, opulent embellishment, and even wet look crocodile leather to die for. Black was certainly a base colour for the collection, which I love for its own merits but also because it made the gorgeous golds, blues and reds really stand out. The shoes definitely warranted a mention too – all pointed with ankle straps and, to the surprise of some, all flat! All in all a stunning collection, and definitely a stand out of fashion week for me.
That’s all! Some other collections which I think were particularly noteworthy included Holly Fulton, Eudon Choi, Giles, Christopher Kane, Julien Macdonald and David Koma, but I have now run out of fashion adjectives. I hope that my somewhat under-educated opinions of LFW AW14 were informative, and if not at least a little entertaining!
