After sunny Barcelona, it’s time now for the windy and rainy London. Despite the cranky weather, I am every morning ready to meet new designers and new interesting people. I am ready to mingle with fashion crowd.
One red Gabriela Dumitran hat, Moschino shoes, Asos skirt, Moschino shirt, Christian Louboutin clutch and I am ready for new fashion shows. What came next? Plenty of photographs and one interview for Associated Press during which I was asked if it really worth it to make such sacrifices, to freeze in the rain for the sake of fashion. In any domain you are working or whatever you are passionate about, you must make sacrifices. Yes, even with the risk of catching a damn cold.
“At fashion weeks, the show is out here on the street,” said Carmen Negoita, a blogger in a bright red floppy hat, spiky leopard Christian Louboutin heels and a red coat draped artfully over her shoulders. She was instantly pounced upon by waiting photographers, and she happily rattled off every component of her outfit when asked. Isn’t she cold? And aren’t her feet hurting? “Yes, but if you want to be beautiful you have to sacrifice,” she said. “Besides it’s just a week. I don’t dress up like this every day. It’s a show.” – Washington Post, Associated Press, Daily Mail and
Talking about the fashion shows I have attended, the first one, by Jean Pierre Braganza, presented a collection which the designer described as a modern interpretation of the classicism. This is the feeling you have when you see all those baroque inspired prints on the leather jackets. You can find leather on almost every item, also mixed with textile. In terms of chromatic, you can find black and dark tones with just a few color spots. The architectural style mixed with fluid textures is typical for Braganza and represents the perfect mix between masculine and feminine. It is a easy to wear collection, ideal for the modern woman. My favorite item is the oversized leather jacket.
The new Bora Aksu collection provides a romantic feeling. It is inspired by the letters the designer’s mom used to write him while he was, as a teenager, in the boarding school. Bora Aksu imposes a style you can find at the Turkish schoolgirls: socks and shoes, one of the hype details of the season. The main colors are dark red, powder pink and black and white mixture which can easily be found in almost all his designs. Minimalist, comfortable and fresh – these are the keywords of his collection.
The weather in London is much better today so I think I will have no stress by arriving in time at the following fashion show. I will return with some new posts. The best is yet to come, so stay tuned!
