LFW Day 3 | David Koma // Danielle Romeril // Belstaff // Alexander McQueen

David Koma
Well where do I start, David Koma was one of my surprise favourites of the season, how could I not love a side-split leg, splashes of cobalt blue balanced with grey, white and black, and a key influence of chain metal. Koma perfectly proportioned simplicity through a neutral colour scheme, contrasted to a significance weighting (pardon the pun) of beautiful silver metal. I'm not kidding when I say I want this entire collection! Especially the eyelet-seamed trousers and space-age inspired dresses. All in all, the collection was impacted by futuristic motifs and metallic design, two of my favourite things.


Danielle Romeril
With Danielle Romeril being sponsored by Topshop's Newgen design scheme, I was over-excited to see her presentation at Chelsea College of Arts, ironically situated opposite to Topshop's Unique Show at the Tate. Romeril was giving me major cut-out envy, especially that pastel-blue leather skirt, which I would love to combine with the burgundy cut-out jacket. I can't wait to see how Romeril progresses as I truly believe she is destined for stardom, especially under the watchful eyes of high-street power house Topshop.


With Belstaff's heritage in motor-cycle jackets, I wasn't sure how relevant it would be to my personal style but I was pleasantly surprised. My fave fabric of the moment, faux fur, was on all full-display, alongside chunky leathers, oatmeal knits and patent boots. The intimacy with the models was so different but gave a more friendly vibe than the usual seriousness of fashion week. I can't wait to see what Belstaff show next season!

Alexander McQueen
Being topped by Vogue as the best show at LFW, I couldn't quite believe my eyes when I was invited to the Alexander McQueen show, I have watched Sarah Burton's design interpretation since she took over the brand and couldn't wait to see what she had to offer. Similar to Daks, and very representative of McQueen's consistent aesthetic, the show had a significant Gothic romantic influence. Although, McQueen had a splash more colour and femininity than the Daks show. My highlight being the pastel pink ruffle dress, standing out on amongst a darker palette. Unfortunately, due to my positioning my photos aren't the best quality, so please do check out more imagery on Vogue to fully appreciate the tremendous drama of the show and the intricacy of Burton's designs, especially the sequinned numbers.
