A bit late, but here's my post about my other London Favourite; of course I'm talking about Mrs. Luella Bartley, and her last fabulous collection for Spring/Summer 2009. Luella's collection made me think of candy, tea parties and girlie dreams. It made me think a bit of Chanel, but a technicolor Chanel dreamed by a girl who likes flowers and cake.
The shoes where also beautiful, as the hair complements.
So, now that it's over, it's time to think about all seen at London Fashion Week...isn't LFW wonderful? I love it, because it's always very surprising, less classic than the others, more experimental, always with a touch of punk, a touch of rock, a touch of new young designers with lots of ideas and powerful originality trying to have a name in that difficult world...the fashion world. Talking about young designers, here are some images from Charles Anasatase's show, one of my favourites, no doubt!! I totally adored his collection, it was a great mix of many many things I love...geeky glasses, absolutely faboulous stockings (worn under transparent skirts many times), cardigans, silk, high waists, delicate colours, delicate garments, flounces, disturbed innocence, Lolitesque malicious ways, candid dresses with biker jackets, and that "fairy tale" athmosphere he likes (he actually has a 2005 collection based on Alice in Wonderland)... Mr. Anastase, the 29 year old French genious based in Paris, made me feel happy to be a girl and, as a girl, honoured with such a very girly collection, but realistic with what being a girl is. And jealous, because I can't have all those wonderful outfits he created.
This is my lovely and very red vintage skirt. I bought it weeks ago and I've been experimenting a bit with it. It's quite incredible, because it's got a perfect length, by the knee. And it looks great with flares and with heels, and can look quite casual but also a bit more fancy, depending on how you combine it. It looks great a bit "high waist" with a nice belt. And I tried wearing it as a strapless top with a nice patent bow belt and black skinny pants...it looked a bit Lanvin last season. I'm working on getting over my pathologycal shyness in order to take some pics of myself wearing it that way because it looks great...maybe soon. I promise I'll try (but I'm VERY shy).
I made a lot of cupcakes... After brunch with friends there are only these four left, that I saved for tea with another friend later... I'm trying to stop myself and not eat one. And taking pics of them is not helping...
