Whenever one needs inspiration for the ‘edgy’ and avant-garde, LONDON will always be ‘the place’... Ufffff...
This time was not an exception; but I must say there were pretty unusual, though quite charming, new airs charged with more sophisticated vibes… Very lovely!
Here some FASHION TRENDS to get excited about…
GETTING IN TOUCH WITH OUR MASCULINE SIDE
There is nothing sexier and that better reveal our self-love than when we confidently expose our exquisite masculine side through clothing; and London runways gave us plenty of options to enjoy. Either in tailored pieces, suits, houndstooth, plaid… Or in athletic inspired looks; let’s get in touch with our androgen spirit!

ARTSY CRAFTMANSHIP TO US ALL
ART and the craftsmanship involved in it was everywhere! Catwalks were full of vibrant mixing of colors, prints, motifs and graphics; letting it clear once again (and forever) that designers cannot hold themselves… ART, no matter if figurative, abstract, expressionist, surrealist… Must reign in the fashion world.

IRRESISTIBLE ORGANIC OBSESSION
Flowers, plants, animals, bugs and anything in nature that possess a life of its own were among the honorees in the SPRING / SUMMER 2015 collections; shown in superb prints and motifs… Looked so lovely and irresistible! (Images: Erdem, House of Holland, Mathew Williamson & Julien Macdonald)
METALLIC DAY & NIGHT
Are metallics the new black? For sure many of us are and will be delighted to rock bright pieces and looks as those seen in London Town fashion collections, say day or night. The truth is there is a metallic fashion treasure for every soul and occasion; in pastels hues, black (yes, black!) or classic gold, silver and ochre; no matter the season, nothing should stop us to shine in them!

TOTAL SURRENDER TO DIVINE ASYMMETRY
Asymmetric cuts and detailing were for sure protagonists in these British runways. Mostly played through mixed materials and beautiful combinations of colors; asymmetry looked fantastic either in casual looks or elegant ones. So edgy and cool!
