LONDON fashion week favourites.3

A sleepy sunday in the rest of the world, but with fashion week in furious full-swing there is no rest for the wicked and that means the fashion pack are up bright eyed and bushy tailed for another full on day of fashion frivolity and fabulous apparel. And oh boy it was worth getting up on a sunday, with fantastic offerings from Matthew Williamson, Louise Goldin, Richard Nicoll and Vivienne Westwood. 

It was an early morning androgynous, DIY inspired womenswear collection from RICHARD NICOLL who combined checks, tweed, charcoal grey, velvet, blue, burgundy, jersey and nude all into one feminine and edgy collection. 

From my neck of the woods, MARGARET HOWELL's signature is the quality and detail that appears in her garments time and time again. It would be too bold to describe Howell as a heritage brand but there is something remarkably traditional yet contemporary about this collection with a strong British infusion. Duffel coats, knitwear, camel, tartan and belts. 

Returning to the catwalk at London Fashion Week, Matthew Williamson did not disappoint, with texture and colour abundant and a to die for collection for AW.

This year has already served her well, winning the FASHION FORWARD  prize. Central St Martins graduate, LOUISE GOLDIN has an individual style focused on sculpture and technological innovation. 

vivienne westwood is to fashion as the pope is to the church. That said viv has well earned her place at the top of the fashion hierarchy and her RED Label continues to flourish with a youthful yet classical approach. Inspired by culture, classical music and paintings viv is bringing a cultural clash to life. and I wouldn't expect anything less.
