This season at London Fashon Week as well as all the major designers showcasing their designs we are also seeing high street brands joining in the fun. From Rihanna (Yes! The Rihanna who sang Umbrella) showcasing her first ever collaboration collection with River Island to TopShop who also have their own show space supporting new up and coming designers.
This season I am actually quite excited to be seeing a lot of accessories in different shows. By accessories I do mean awesome bags, shoes, scarfs and belts. I have seen them within collections so clearly for Autumn/ Winter 2013 we need to be focused on some key accessories to update our outfit! We also know accessories are going to be huge when Manolo Blahnik (SCREAMMMMM! Ahhhhh) is the man behind all the London Fashion Week campaign imagery. Life is not complete until you own a pair of Manolo Blahnik!
For this London Fashion Week I think for accessories you can’t beat Sophia Webster. Her shoe designs are damn unique and this season she has got some pretty cute bags too!
When we talk about accessories I think we do often forget about eyewear. If accessories will be big in Autumn/Winter 2013 then I hope you eyewear industry people out there will take note and go with what is happening in the fashion world. This is the way to get more consumers to be open about eyewear! Glasses are not just for nerds you know!
Tomorrow will be the last day of London Fashion Week until next season and tomorrow will be all about Street style! It is always my favourite part of covering London Fashion Week 🙂
