London Fashion Week is definitely something else, is unexpected, filled with surprises, sometimes even crazy.
And although I love the free spirited fashion, the one that challenges you to understand and get the story that lies behind it all, watching this Fall’s collections made me realize one thing … it’s not all for me, I mean, I personally can handle only small doses of crazy in fashion, the rest has to remain grounded, elegant, feminine, original,with a twist here and there, yes, but not clownish.
The first round up for LFW gathers my favorite picks, out of three collections that seemed to hit home with me and that I found to be appealing, relevant, interesting. I’m talking about a personal favorite which is Burberry Prorsum, or the epiphany of British elegance translated to an Uptown Chic fashion , Mary Katrantzou that has a way of playing with colors, textures, prints and shapes like no one else, and Matthew Williamson, who kept the looks stylish, fresh, glamorous and beautifully embellished.
Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012
Mary Katrantzou Fall 2012
Matthew Williamson Fall 2012
In my extra long list filled with all the people I love or admire, there was an empty spot at one point, right under Current Favorite Model, because for a long time I have gone having with none, none of the new generation anyhow.
This fact could mean absolutely nothing, but I find it to be a little bit weird considering the amount of time I spend going through fashion collections, magazine editorials, campaigns, runway shows etc …
The inevitable happened, right when British and current Burberry Prorsum spokes-model, Cara Delevingne, caught my attention with her natural self, her adorable quirkiness and her understated beauty of course … So this season, besides getting excited to see the new trends and collections for Fall 2012, I was also excited to keep track on all the designer Cara walked for, and luckily they were many …
For the New York Fashion Week Fall 2012, Cara graced the runway for Jason Wu, Rag & Bone, Thakoon, Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and Tory Burch, in what seemed to be an impressive amount of shows.
Below you can find all of Cara’s New York runway looks as I particularly found her drop dead gorgeous in Jason Wu. The next round up will focus on Cara’s appearances, during her London and Milan presentations. Do you also have a favorite look of hers ?
