Graduate Fashion Week 2009: Northumbria

By admin on June 15th, 2009

We’re still collecting our thoughts from all the GFW collections, Dulcie Dryde‘s sequinned trousers and feather headdress turned our heads, but it was the showstopping bondage jacket which really captured our hearts. Neat formal with a sportswear touch for Kayleigh Dunn, whose yellow jacket with herringbone underlay is a surefire winner. Maxwell Holmes handled a great colour palette and retro-influenced tailoring. Not pictured is Miriam Sucis‘ collection, which included a great latex parka, ingenious!

Graduate Fashion Week 2009: Kingston University BA Show Menswear

By admin on June 10th, 2009

Kingston University‘s show was a much-anticipated one, and the atmosphere was electric as the lights went down.

Philippa Jenkins showed smart adventurer looks, with great accessories, she obviously has a knack for colour. Myriam Saumtally focused on sports items and workwear, giving grey jersey a twist with embroidery and we particularly loved the semi-sheer nylon jacket, with houndstooth fabric just visible underneath. Alexander James‘ subtle moorish influences married perfectly with details like cummerbunds and we fell in love with the pleated grey harem pants. A big GFW trend, Eleanor Searle‘s sheer tailored boilersuit was the centrepiece of her sportswear collection.

Graduate Fashion Week street style: Madras and Raf Simons trainers

By admin on June 12th, 2008

street style andy grant river island graduate fashion week.jpgWhat are the odds of snapping two of River Island’s designers at GFW? I swear on my Margaret Howell wide-leg trousers that this isn’t deliberate…

First up is Andy Grant Design Manager at River Island, who is wearing Raf Simons trainers. Andy is sporting a deceptively simple look, but little details like the cutaway collar, gold Casio watch and subtle shine finish of the windcheater really make the outfit work.

GFW street style: Balenciaga and deck shoes

By admin on June 10th, 2008

yu masui gfw street style.jpgCropped trousers can look extremely dodgy; Japanese fashion writer Yu Masui is a wonderful example of how to wear a summery crop. The stripy slacks hit just above the ankle and look great as part of a monochrome outfit.

A simple shirt provides a foil for Yu’s pleated and pearl-embellished Balenciaga accessory, after seeing it I’m tempted to raid my haberdashery stash and knock up a version of my own. The glasses top it all off and add a little humour to the look.

GFW catwalk report: Westminster

By admin on June 10th, 2008

sarah senouci westminster graduate fashion week detail.jpgThe Westminster show is always a treat and with people like GQ ed Dylan Jones in the audience you know the calibre is going to be high.

Sarah Senouci’s collection consisted of impeccably-finished English summer attire gently infused with retro Americana. Stand By Me met Brideshead Revisited as romantic foppishness combined with dusty farmboy.

Check and and madras shirts were accessorised with bandanas and a windcheater gave a modern touch. Trousers were either of the slouchy Oxford Bags variety or aristocratic britches.

GFW street style: tasselled loafers and neutrals

By admin on June 9th, 2008

I’ve been literally running around Earl’s Court trying to get pictures of the best-dressed men at GFW for you.

When I spied Roberto Alessandro’s tasselled loafers I knew I had to include him in our street style selection. Roberto is 21 and a 1st year Fashion Styling student at Salford. The aforementioned loafers come from Brick Lane and together with the polo shirt and OTT gold chain makes for a great look that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

We’re liveblogging from the tents at this year’s Graduate Fashion Week, apologies for the image quality here is the verdict from the catwalks. The Rochester students presented a very strong menswear collection this year, (from left to right)Minne Muztuccari kicked things off with a range of deconstructed jodphurs with sliky jersey panels and built-up ruffled jackets.
Elinor Seager used sportswear and sleepwear influences teaming tracksuit-inspired cropped trousers with coral windcheaters. Suits were given a youthful twist with piping along the pockets and seams.
Pastel colours and candy stripes continued the carefree sporty theme as Elizabeth Render sent models down the catwalks in oversized voluminous shirts and dropped crotch trousers.
