LFW Spring 2015 :: Ladylike in London

For Spring 2015, London showgoers got in touch with their ultra-feminine side. Pleated and full skirts, statement coats, light and airy fabrics with a healthy dose of fur, lace and embellishments mixed in ruled the streets. Here’s a roundup of lovely, ladylike looks from London Town.

Style Inspiration :: Olivia Palermo at Spring 2015

OP fringe and pleats

No matter the occasion, Olivia Palermo always manages to be camera-ready. For the Spring 2015 shows in New York, Olivia doubled up on pleats at Tibi, channeled the western look in a leather fringe skirt and suede blouse at Rachel Zoe, and got all wrapped up at DVF.

On the streets of London, the street style star was snapped wearing a multi-coloured Matthew Williamson coat which she styled as a dress, a lady-like lace Burberry dress with a twist, and a knotted camo shirt with a peplum hem mini skirt.

She’s not afraid to mix things up and still manages to look impeccably polished. Elegant, effortless, edgy.

LFW Fall 2014 :: Hunter Original

Hunter, the heritage English rubber boot company, unveiled its first-ever clothing collection, Hunter Original at London Fashion Week on Saturday. With 160 years of traction under its soles and new creative director Alasdhair Willis holding the reins, the brand made quite a splash on the runway.

Inspired by ‘expeditions into the final frontiers of the deep sea and outer space’, Willis showcased outerwear constructed out of technical fabrics like neoprene, vulcanized rubber and high-tech fleece. Models stomped their way down the water-filled runway in waterproof trench coats, rubber ponchos, shiny puffer jackets, fleece jackets, and knit sweaters topped off with stylish balaclavas and beanies. The models splashed the front row as they marched through the water in Hunter’s newest welly designs – a heeled rubber boot and a Chelsea boot for men.

If you missed it, take a peek at my favourite looks from the collection:
