LFW came around again pretty quickly, but if I’m being honest, I just wasn’t feelin’ it this season. In past season’s I’ve been known to be super organised, outfits have been planned, shows have been scheduled, I’d do a few brand collaborations and takeovers…but this season I just felt is bit ‘meh’ about the whole thing. I have recently started planning my wedding so this might be a factor as my mind is pretty preoccupied. So on day one I arrived pretty late at around 2pm just to see a few friends, grab a bite to eat and witness the circus that is Somerset House. I wore this amazing Karen Millen leather fringe jacket which is quite possibly the most amazing jacket I’ve ever seen! Fringe is a big trend for SS15 so it had to be rocked this LFW and look at me and Claire totally twinning in fringe (below). The jumper, which everyone thought was Celine, is actually from M&S and has that 70’s mustard colouring which added a touch of colour to my otherwise monochrome outfit. I wanted to carry on the 70’s styling with these wide leg trousers from Mango which I’m incredibly surprised I managed to keep white for the entire day! I accessorised with this Jimmy Choo ‘Riley’ bag, Dune Boots and Astrid & Miyu Jewellery.

To finish off the day I went to the John Pierre Braganza show where I sat front row which is always a bonus, but not for the reason you’d expect. Sitting ‘frow’ has a very self-important stigma about it, and yes you are allocated front row tickets if you are ‘somebody’. But for me it’s all about the angles! As you all know I’m quite the keen photographer and a front row seat is perfect for getting great shots (as you’ll see below). I wouldn’t care if I were crouched in the aisle so long as I had a close and clear view! The collection was beautiful, and based around structure and mechanical elements which is pretty apparent in the origami style pleats and metallic fabrics. How incredible is the shearling jacket which is based on aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart. Colour-wise is was quite a neutral palette, seeing the return of camel which I’m sure will delight everyone who invested in a camel coat this season. The tail end of the collection saw a more jewel-toned colour scheme with garnet and emerald green pieces. Footwear was either lazer-cut or basket weaved adding texture and detail to the minimal lines of the garments. I did pick up on the wrist wear which I found myself lusting after immediately; wide leather knots and leather woven buckles.
