All week the media has been teasing us with glimpses of 'fashion' from the far flung Catwalks of New York. However with London Fashion Week AW16 officially kicking off TODAY, we no longer have to view from a distance. Instead we can all get involved in the action, even without a ticket to the 'frow' through the wonders of street-style and social media. The rise of blogging culture has democratised fashion, making the street as influential as the catwalk when it comes to defining the seasons trends. Conseqeuently even the most elite fashion houses such as Burberry will be streaming their shows live to the masses. Simply loitering around Somerset House with a knock out sense of style, (and of course looking important) gives you every chance of being splashed across the pages of cosmo, marie claire, and maybe even the fashion bible itself...VOGUE!
To assist your evolution into the fashion elite we have drawn together three of SS16's top trends into looks accessible for all, through using the best pieces currently available on the highstreet paired with some of our incredibly stylish and clearly fashion-forward, jewellery. if it has long been your wish to be a fashion goddess then you'd better read on...
1. GRAPHIC STRIPES
Enthrall passers-by with super-size bold stripes, in a range of nautical colours, as seen on the catwalks of Missioni, Prada and Armani. Whether you go full on statement, in TOPSHOP's monochrome wrap dress, or simply dip your toe in the water with a classic breton tee, it is the perfect zingy start to spring 16. Our VENICE collection in a range of bold seafaring shades of lapis, black onyx and white agate, and banded in 24kt gold, are the perfect pieces to compliment this fresh, vibrant look, and elevate it into the realm of luxury.
Romanticised Femininity is on fine form this season, as flowing ruffles adorn anything and every wearable, from dresses and tops to shoes and bags. This style is perfect for adding a touch of delicate eye-catching drama to your look, whilst retaining a sense of subtletly and softness. Our ethereal aqua chalcedony gemstone pieces, such as our ATHENA EOS EARRINGS, have the perfect pastel hue to adorn this look, and compliment to it's bright, romantic flavour.
3. VIVID COLOUR
SS16 is guranteed to be full of vibrant, popping and often clashing colour schemes channeled into graphic patterns, as showcased on the catwalks of Christopher Kane, Gucci and Balmain, so don't be afraid to blaze boldness with your look, through bright clothes and accessories. Our brand new ELEMENTAL collection, blending rough cut gemstone slices with 24kt gold electroplating, embody all thats bright, and are the perfect pieces to add an 'element' of brightness and interest to your look.
