heliot emil SS20 “torqued ellipse”

ok my obsession with heliot emil is showing no signs of slowing up anytime soon // im still drooling over their looks from the spring summer show in paris last month //

i know i write about them every season but vitor and julius juul continue to experiment so gracefully with tech and fashion // alyx fans will say theyre biting but i honestly think theyre doing something different //

the collection, named and inspired by serra’s sculpture series was a virtual presentation and you can still catch the full show here… http://ss20.heliotemil.com/

technical layers and clever cutaways in shades of industrial monochromes // absolutely love! // the tailoring too is on point // also those metalic pants in looks 2 && 29 are set to be big hype come their release in jan //

maison margiela ‘snatched’ bag

spotted on the ss20 catwalk im obsessing over the abstract clutch bag designed by john galliano // part of the co-ed ‘Delfie’ collection as previewed in paris // genderless and sleek the in shiny white && black && red the design is all angles //

absolute must have for next season!! i love the miniature white version belted and also the leather hand clasp //

LFW SS20 // highlights 2

as promised here are the second highlights from the london fashion week ss20 shows //

biggest trends // alot of sexy silks and masculine tailoring (my fave) // alot of fringe and puffy sleeves still kicking around // colour palettes moved softer for 2020 towards pastels & neutrals and patterns and away from the brights we had last year (or maybe thats selective observation) // HATS HATS HATS // chunky jewellery //

girls in suits 009 palmer//harding

the next in the female tailoring series comes from Levi Palmer and Matthew Harding // relatively new on the scene launched by the central saint martins pair in 2012 the brand is going from strength to strength //

a bit different to the others in the ‘girls in suits’ series, this is tailoring at its most relaxed and flowing // in fact palmer//harding push the boundaries and our relationship with suiting as they deconstruct and rework traditional garments into new found shapes and experiment with pattern cutting and draping techniques //

i for one am a huge fan of their innovative and contrasting approach to modern tailoring // often mixing the harsh with the soft, feminine amongst the masculine, structured with the flowing //

their cohesive collections of everyday wear littered with more statement pieces are a feast for the eyes //

certainly a brand to add to the work wardrobe for those days when you want to push chic fashion vibes in the office rather than power suiting //

gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous //

girls in suits 008 Peter Do

next in the female tailoring series is newly formed new-york based Peter Do // trained by none other than phoebe philo Do’s own label has a lovely minimalism and chic tailoring promising to flatter all shapes and sizes //

in his first season Do honed his aspiration for the label “It’s about building a modern uniform and wardrobe for women.” // i adore the asymmetric look of many of the suits && the sleek layers // the craftsmanship and quality looks superb //

the designers own fabric ‘spacer’ crops up alot // a kind of combination of mesh sponge and neoprene which he has been refining over his career //

also a huge fan of his large heart shaped open locket earrings //

any of these suits would be the perfect glow up to your office style // power dressing on point // you can buy the latest peter do collection from his website and netaporter //

ludovic de saint sernin ss20

parisian based ex-balmain designer Ludovic de Saint Sernin presented his wet and wild collection at the pompidou centre a couple of weeks back // i must say for someone who mastered the intricacies of OTT embellishment i love the sleek and minimal style of his designs //

only recently dipping into womenswear its lovely to see the full spectrum in his collection // transparent fabrics and the signature eyelet underwear brief from last season made a reappearance // the whole set was like a sexy wet t-shirt competition turned high fashion //

few of my favourite looks below // male sensuality on point //

deserving of the buzz and one to watch for sure //
