Paul Costelloe

Paul Costelloe’s unconventional collection opened the first day of LFW, filled with super sheer dresses and shirts, over the knee socks with short skirts, waistlines nipped in with leather corsets, leather fingerless gloves, tweed jackets with lace dresses, and lots of prints, tweed, sheer, leather and black.

See the collection in the gallery above.

Simone Rocha?

Layers was a theme of the collection with thick tweed coats paired with layers of light organza; thin layers of floating, gauzy slips were thrown over jacquard suits, and heavy, oversized distressed knits were worn over elegant tulle skirts. Oversized proportions, such as the tweed coat with overflowing sleeves still did not stop this from being a romantic, feminine collection of shades of predominantly black, white and creams, with pops of colour found in memorable pieces like the pink fuzzy dressing-gown coat, the red embellished tulle dress and lavender embellished sheer dress.?Embellishment was found on everything from jewelled slips and white button detailing to high collars and tulle bows.
