LFW: highlights from Sunday

Posted on

Vivienne Westwood Red Label 

As usual there was a directional makeup theme at Westwood, with models sporting splashes and mashes of different colors and effects. Clothing-wise, Dame Vivienne went with bold-shouldered yet relaxed tailored shapes and chic summer floral frocks. Well-known as a fan of a tartan, this time there was none on Westwood’s runway, but the Caledonian spirit was there in badges worn by models supporting Scottish independence. 

Paul Smith 

Sir Paul Smith has a magpie’s eye for fun details, but also knows when to hold back. His latest womenswear collection mixed relaxed sporty pieces with silky minimalist eveningwear in a mix of stripes, and solid blocks of tones in a pared-back color palette. In fact the only fuss (and even then it was pretty refined) came in the fringed edges on certain pieces, understated frills on waists, and a few florals. 


The Spring/Summer 2015 collection was designed by an in-house team at the still headless brand (no replacement for Emma Hill has been named since she announced her departure as creative director back in June 2013). A honeycomb trellis pattern was the key print, with the motif also picked up in laser-cut leather pieces. Other key items included the clog-sandals and the touch of sparkle added by pale blue lurex sweats.
