Erdem - spring 2015
A bit Valentino, but I’m the last to mind that.
Antonio Berardi - spring 2015
Berardi’s been consistently one of the London highlights for me. Loving this voluminous space hippie look.
Christopher Kane - spring 2015
Simone Rocha - spring 2015
Temperley London - spring 2015
The futuristic hippie translated here via a geometric pattern and a monastic silhouette. This post is not an endorsement of sneakers outside the gym, btw. WRT womenswear, I’m firmly not in the sneakers/wide ugly shoe camp, if anyone’s keeping score.
Marc Jacobs - spring 2015
This was my favorite Marc presentation in a few seasons. The riff on uniforms yielded extremely wearable clothes in dramatic silhouettes. Sure, there wasn’t anything that pushed current high fashion’s accepted rubric - crop tops, exaggerated volumes, and flat surfaces all dominated the range. But fashion gives a snapshot of where we are, and this intersection of military and off kilter detailing expresses individual anonymity in the shadow of ambiguous wars, pervasive eavesdropping, and income inequality. With hope and humor at that.
Altuzzara - spring 2015

Top shot is the wedding dress to beat this season (it’s not even a wedding dress prolly but that just makes my point)
