LMFF - L'oreal Paris Runway 2

Photobucket
Akira - I always imagine Akira Isogawa pouring love into his designs as he sits quietly in his studio, perhaps it's the romanticism in his designs that leaves me in wonderment. Akira himself says, “I translate fabrics into soft and romantic silhouettes, using natural fabrics like silks and cottons, which are kind to the skin" and his show at LMFF definitely exemplifies this.

Camilla & Marc, brother & sister duo have a shiny street effect in their collection. Loose garments rocking with metallics and shine. Love the little lace socks!

Dhini ruffled it up with an almost Victorian/girly vibe. Shocks of blue power up their collection of dresses, skirts, tops and sweaters. I wonder if those are Alaia shoes?

Gorman knows how to pack a punch in their dresses and the leather, which I've seen in-store is divinely soft. A very Gorman collection but in this case, using a Autumn/Winter palette.

Has Megan Park been on a Safari lately? If so, what a wonderful inspiration! Lashings of animal print added texture to the beautiful silks and my favourite piece (not pictured) was a short jacket with Chinese dragons. Tres chic.

TL Wood used deep hues (similar to Goot's collection) and the colour played on the fabrics used. The second dress is almost a plaid and it works so well together. Wood had a varied collection of pants, blazers, dresses & skirts and it would be so great to wear her pieces for work or play.

Prints, sheers, fringe and asymmetry. Vixen showed a grown up rock vibe and the collection looks interesting. I'd love to see it in-store and get a feel of the fabrics. Will have to check it out.

Yeojin Bae, the queen of dresses and well cut, beautifully designed clothes. The second dress reminds me of Chanel (not sure why) and I like that there were structured silhouettes in some of her dresses as opposed to all the loose fitting clothes of the moment. I very much like it : )

ooh Camilla and Marc rocked it out. AMAZING. Also Megan Park always puts her vintage spin on it, love that she did it with the safari look this season. Great picks!
