Due to how gem-packed it was in London yesterday, I'm just posting the major gems in this post. I have left the "little goodies" for tomorrow's post since there's only gonna be a couple of shows today.
Today we have Arctic Monkeys to get hold of our inner Brits...
We'll start of the day with my favorite collection in London (maybe in London + New York?). Peter Pilotto's show is filled with an array of colorful prints well executed onto dresses, top+bottom separates, and ruffles. This "voluminous" collection is eye-catching and insanely gorgeous. There is not a single look that I did not LOVE. These are so me.
Maybe, to me, Christopher Kane isn't as "gem-packed" as Peter Pilotto, but it certainly has all the highlights it needs. The absolute "gem" is definitely the jelly material they used in some outfits. Check out how crazy that pink jelly suit is
Giles is always like a couture show. And it was the same yesterday. It was a lot of fun but very dark, sexy, and mysterious. His show wows me every time.
Of course we end the post with Burberry! The British classic returns with these shiny metallic jewel-toned finishes to most of this collection. Christopher Bailey also keeps the same silhouettes and peplums that he's been using in the past collections. This is an ideal example showing how we all recognize their products no matter how they change.
