10 Issue 73 / 2015 FASHION LFW Faves We pick out the best bits from the five-day fashion fest that was London Fashion Week Shrimps The faux fur that made the label famous was back in abundance for LFW and was more lust-worthy than ever. This time we were treated to a swinging seventies colour palette - emerald, camel and rich red – with added sparkle, glitter and tartan. Hannah Wei- land's illustrations of strange but totally charming little characters embossed coats, jumpers and bags; a reference to logo trend in the special Shrimps way. The accessories game was also on point – faux fur clutches embroidered with the doodles, and fur lined shoes, another collab with Sophia Webster, are just crying to be taken out on the town. Ashley Williams With Georgia May Jagger, Alice Dellal and Immy Waterhouse leading the charge, Ashley Williams presented us with a badass girl gang we wish we could be in. The collection was rammed with 80s and 90s refs – bucket hats, corsets, zips, and slogans slapped over dresses and cropped jumpers. Pink faux fur trimmed black PVC, semi sheer skirts, open at the knee leggings; it's a punk mish-mash in Williams' world. Rules do not apply. Pam Hogg The club kids' fave brought us another out-there presentation, this time entitled "Diamond Dogs and Demons". With a David Bowie soundtrack, Hogg brought twisted fairytale vibes to LFW. Her flame motif adorned majestic headpieces and all-leather ensembles. She also gave us eye patches, patent capes, taxidermy headgear, silver catsuits, big hair and bigger lashes, everything you need for a Dalston disco. House Of Holland No catwalk necessary for this one, Holland had his girls, or "trustafarian street urchins" as he called them, on travelators, and boy did they work it. As at Ashley Williams, we were offered another vision of an effortlessly cool girl gang, and a new way to wear a silk scarf – round your neck but over your hair. Bright gingham and tartan were present and correct, and Holland gave us even more faux fur; the fluffy pale pink and orangey-red chevron striped coat was particularly standout. Ashish This season, Ashish took Bree Daniels (played by Jane Fonda) from cult 70s flick Klute as his inspiration. Riffing on her attitude and sassy style, he showed a mash-up of furry patch- work, lacy lingerie, latex boots and the Ashish staple, sequins. And the jackets, studded stonewashed denim and slouchy fur- trimmed sequinned camo parkas, YES PLEASE. Ashish definitely loves his girls, as he explained, "I think women should have a right to dress the way they want and feel sultry and empow- ered – you could call these pieces a celebration of femininity and freedom." The thigh-high, red latex, lace-up stiletto boots were the perfect expression of his working girl cool aesthetic. We want a pair.
