Sun-kissed smock tops & sinewy evening gowns steal LFW show
Sep '08
A packed schedule of stellar names and the opening of the exhibition at London Fashion Week made for a strong Day Two of the London Collections.

S/S 09 London catwalk highlights:
Luella "Princes Margaret on Acid" was, according to Luella, the spirit behind her typically irreverent take on Sunday Best dressing. The result? Neon pastels, bow-fronted blouses, mini crinis, Queen Mum bags and bubble-gum-hued shoes.

Marios Schwab Inspired by installation artist Christo and traditional Greek dresses, the designer explored the notion of garments as jewellery for the body. Cue sinewy evening dresses tethered to the body with copper ropes and a stand out finale piece woven from pure silver.

Jaeger London Now in its 2nd season on the LFW schedule, Jaeger London is one of the must-see shows of the week. The collection didn't disappoint. Tuning in to the soft-focus era of the seventies, there were sun-kissed printed smock tops, billowing kaftans, kimono sleeve jackets and tangerine safari suits. Great pieces for the off-duty working woman.

Tonight's round of post show events kicked off with an olfactory treat at Dover Street Market. Milliner Stephen Jones and a decidedly esoteric fashion crowd assembled to celebrate the launch of his eponymous scent in collaboration with Comme des Garcons. Round the corner, On/Off's 10th anniversary bash kicked off to the live tunes of Rhys Ifans new band, The Peth. Next up? It was off to Downing Street.

Number 10 no less where Sarah Brown and BFC Chairman Harold Tillman paid homage to the success and creativity of the British Fashion industry. It was the first in a series of events designed to celebrate not just the past 25 years of British Fashion but its future too.
