Eley Kishimoto‘s LFW parties are always a relaxed affair; so forget any fashion snootiness because last night’s bash was a friendly, vibrant do with masses of well dressed people.

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.
