J JS Lee, Julien Macdonald, Holly Fulton & David Koma: LFW Highlights

I don't know if it's because London is a city close to my heart, but LFW excites me just that little bit more than New York, Milan or Paris. Don't get me wrong I love all of the cities, but even being in Liverpool and not attending any of the shows, I can still feel the excitement and buzz of LFW just from browsing Instagram or Twitter. And it has kicked off to a really strong start this year, so here are my highlights from the past few days:

J JS Lee AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

Isn't this collection just beautiful? I love simplicity when it comes to everyday fashion, and I absolutely love how Lee has incorporated her signature masculine edge. Clean but fashion forward, this show was just amazing in my eyes. I particularly love the wide pleats and the fur details.

Julien Macdonald AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

I'm not going to lie, Julien Macdonald isn't my favourite designer of all time, but I was pleasantly surprised to see he'd gone for the gothic glamour theme. I love the high neck lines with sexy embellishments and cut outs. I could really see myself wearing some of these styles, in particular the knitted dresses/jumpsuit.

Holly Fulton AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

Fulton really appealed to the girly side of me with this collection. It was very clearly 60s inspired - some of the models wore large oversized sunglasses and beehives. I found the whole show to be feminine yet empowering, and just gave an overall positive feel. Fulton has absolutely nailed the statement coat, clutch bag and dress combination.

David Koma AW 2015-16 Ready-To-Wear

Another throwback to the 60s, I love the frill details on the sleeves here, and the leather and nude together is refreshing. Can we also just appreciate how gorgeous that blue jumpsuit is? I think the bold blues in this collection would be a great new addition to a winter wardrobe as it's so unexpected and really stands out from all the neutrals. Koma also had some bright orange pieces in his collection too, which also worked really well.
