LFW Day 1: A Fashion Director’s Street Style Diary

LFW Day 1: A Fashion Director’s Street Style Diary

I’m a concise packer. A minimalist you might say. So packing for four days at London Fashion Week was nothing short of a brain drain (especially given the emphasis placed on street style these days). What I wear on any given day depends almost entirely on my mood (and somewhat on the weather). How can I anticipate whether I’ll feel sprightly enough for a See By Chloé dress five days in advance? Perhaps I’ll be desperate for the languidness of wide-leg trousers instead. Plus the occasion demanded more than one outfit per day; I don’t think I’ve ever packed that many pieces for a two week holiday. So after very little deliberation (I felt it was better to be instinctive about the process rather than overly analytical), I threw a selection of pieces that can be interchanged easily enough into a suitcase and hoped it would reflect my own personal style. This is what I wore for day 1 of LFW.

February is cold, very cold, so a couple of polo necks were essential, plus chunky cardigans that I could wear instead of a coat (there’s very little room in an average sized suitcase for more than one piece of outerwear). I love the colours in this print skirt, and because I’m very pale, colour is an important element in my wardrobe.

These earrings were bought at a local market in Greystones and cost just €5.

For the Ashley Williams show on Friday evening, I stuck with my Maje boots, which I had been wearing since 4.30am on Friday morning (my call time to head to the airport!) – that’s how comfortable they are. I paired it with a green and floral-print dress; again, I often like to incorporate a touch of print for added interest. A sweater in a similar colourway and a black blazer made the look feel more my own, as did the accessories; a silk scarf and a vintage handbag.
