london fashion week day 5
After having such a good day at Fashion Week on Friday, I decided to head up again yesterday afternoon for the final day, and brought my friend Tom along for the ride. We started off at Somerset House, before walking to the May Fair Hotel for the Fashion Monitor Style Lounge. It was beautiful in there; they were showcasing Superdry's new collection in collaboration with Timothy Everest that will be launching later this year (I'm not normally a Superdry fan, but some of those coats were gorgeous; such attention to detail!) as well as their new make-up range that will be launching in February. There were a couple of other brands dotted around that we had a nosey at, before eating copious amounts of Green & Blacks and heading out into the rain to go to a show that I had been looking forward to all weekend; Lucas Nascimento. The main reason why I was so excited was because he was showing in the Topshop Showspace in Regents Park; it was amazing in there! There was plenty of champagne, delicious canapés, and to top it all off we managed to get a seat; needless to say my feet were extremely grateful! Of course I was also looking forward to seeing the clothes; after doing a little research and looking at his AW13 collection online I had high expectations, and he certainly did not disappoint. The collection was absolutely beautiful - very polished and clean, with simple silhouettes, asymmetric neck-lines and jackets, and plenty of mesh detailing. Everything was very wearable, and there was one particular coral mesh-knit tee that I definitely wouldn't object to having in my wardrobe for SS14! I think the collection, combined with the great location, made this my favourite show out of the few that I was lucky enough to attend over Fashion Week; all in all, a great end to a great few days of fashion.
As before, outfit details will follow tomorrow! Also, I'm now officially totalfashionjunkie.com! I bought the domain last week, and after having various irritating issues (as those of you who follow my Twitter will know), it should be working perfectly now. I'm hoping this is the first step towards making my blog a whole lot more professional/generally better quality over the next few months, so get ready for some changes!
