My Two Pence into London Fashion Week

:: Victoria Victoria Beckham ~ SS16 Ready-to-Wear
 
The first collection which definitely caught my eye and I would say was a highlight for me, after scrolling the 'net through many of LFW's great exhibitions was the Victoria Victoria Beckham collection. I have to say, her collections are always something to lust after; I'm forever scrolling her website, dreaming of clutching one of her bags or rocking the patterned a-lines; though never have I the bank balance to fund anything by her (well I do have The Spice Girls greatest hits CD, does that count?!)  At first look, her collection seems trademark to her style; crisp and formal, though with bold colours that draw together the eye-catching patterns. The style of the collection was drawn from Moroccan influences (according to Vogue, who's going to argue with them, eh?!) and with the look of the loose fits, this seems evident. On the whole, as I say to myself, if its a collection of pieces I would be comfortable and love wearing, then its a love of mine - this collection is just that.. Posh Spice you didn't disappoint!!!
  
:: Burberry Prorsum SS16 ~ Ready-to-Wear
 
Next is the epitome of British design - Burberry; now this traditional line has always been a bit up and down in terms of me love for it. The traditional check has always seem to be a little (do I dare say) common. Though over the last few years the traditional check, as well as its extended 'Prorsum' label seemed to have been reinvented, now seeming to be elegant with a Brit-chic feel. This collection seemed sophisticated, with a high influences of black and nude shades - a big difference to the VVB's feel of bright bolds. On the whole, the collection drew comparisons to All Saints trademark feel of dark shades in my mind, though plenty of shape and fitted to bring shape and enhance the body - the dress on the left being drawn in at the waist to enhance the female shape.
 
:: Chloe - Pre ~ SS16 Ready-to-Wear
 
With Chloe, I have to say, I haven't invested a lot of my time in the same way I scour the likes of Victoria Beckham's designs. Though, I have seen the latest lust of the Chloe Drew bag across social media platforms. Whilst looking through the latest fashion collections of the week, this one stood out prominently. I have to say, its the simplicity of the pieces that draws me in, with muted colours and loose fits - the use of nudes being very evident throughout. Though, some strips of animal print seemed to used, this showing signs of leopard or zebra making a more distinguished comeback this SS16 (though has it ever left?!) Overall, this collection seems to define (in my book) breezy, the laid back feel makes me sense relaxed - and who doesn't love relaxed, right?
 
:: Palmer//Harding ~ SS16 Ready-to-Wear

Finally, is brand new to me; though from this collection I will definitely do more homework in learning what's to do with this brand. On the surface, the airy designs are very pastel based, with a formal feel. Most noticeable of the styling of these pieces are the high necklines, I feel sometimes this type of neckline can seem unflattering, though Palmer//Harding seem to pull it off in a formal way, making a statement of the bold shape. On the whole, this collection drew a lot of interest to me, with the colours and shapes being pieces I would buy if it was a something on the shelves of a high street chain.
