London Fashion Week RTW Autumn/Winter 2010

Well, there were a number of shows that needs a mention. London is probably my favourite fashion destination as two of my favourite and inspirational designers Alexander McQueen and Christopher Kane showcase here!Though McQueen showed at Paris this season, London did witness some amazing shows like that of Burberry Prorsum, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Christopher Kane, Peter Pilotto etc.

Burberry Prorsum

 Am not much into Burberry Prorsum, but I could not help myself but take a closer look into the collection when I came across the cropped leather jackets, the military suits and the smart lace outfits. I had recently reviewed this collection too. Check it out.

Central Saint Martins

This is a unique London thing and it’s something students of Central Saint Martins should be proud of. Not every fashion college has it’s own show at prestigious fashion weeks such as this! C’mon… Not every fashion college has produced an Alexander McQueen or Christopher Kane or Stella McCartney either. Ha ha. As students, we have the unique advantage to not worry about he commercial aspects of the outfits like other designers do. All we do is showcase the best of our garment construction skills and enjoy the collection itself. Outfits had geometrical silhouettes redefining the entire body shape. The collection was ultimate fun over all displaying brilliant skill and talent.

Christopher Kane

It was checks the previous season and it’s leather-lace-embroidery that did the trick for Mr.Kane this season. Leather and lace outfits were brilliantly constructed and carried beautiful floral embroidery. Fashion certainly needs minds like his!!


This was yet another collection featuring lace along with prints. The models walked in grey lace dresses with ruffle details and a waist belt.

And the feminine printed outfits in brown, rust, teal, yellow and teal.

Issa quoted “the label is struggling to find it’s own way”! Alright, the collection didn’t have much of great prints except for the ‘sky scrapper silhouettes’. It lacked exquisite embellishments as it was seen in McQueen’s or Christopher Kane’s show. So?? The outfits seen in the collection was probably one of the smartest I’ve come across this season! But yes, the styling should have been better 😐

Jonathan Saunders

This what would be called a sportstar’s best friend xD Yess.. I love the sporty attitude of this collection. The colour mood is simply superb ranging from ash, chalk blue and orange. The outfits have minimalistic appeal and delicacy yet a refreshing appeal.

Marios Schwab

I totally adore these outfits with strange mood, interesting cut and drapes. I dunno.. a strange nostalgia and romanticism! Just love them!

Peter Pilotto

BFA award winning designer came out with this graphical saga or what can be called as “Graphical” collection. lol! The rust-orangish colour mood, prints, silhouettes and everything… reflects his creativity.  Great going!!

Todd Lynn

A hunter’s saga! What I love the most in this collection is the suits with leather details and the straightforward neutral colour palette ranging from fawn, grey, olive and black.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Love the styling and drama! The logo t-shirts, draped jersy, giant collared coats and plaids were teamed with punk inspired hairdo. The colour palette ranged from orange, pink, maroon, mustard, yellow and grey.
