F/W 2014 London, Milan, and Paris

by Joseph McKeown


British Vogue captures London Fashion Week's "excitement, colour and fabulous style" in a six minute film featuring Tom Ford, Erdem, and Alice Temperley, among many others. Fashionista looks at the ten top trends from London, including a "new crop of London collections that were so unapologetically good at being bad, we couldn’t help but take notice. Oil-slick finishes, cobwebby crochets, and hardcore studs were totally unstoppable." Plus "the season’s breakout must-have, the slip dress[.]"

In Milan "Roberto Cavalli transformed the Cavalli woman into a scorching goddess of strength and fantasy" which means of course that the models walked around a ring of fire. Dazed has the other highlights: drones over the Fendi catwalk, Miuccia Prada's sensual layers, and a magical forest created by Dolce & Gabbana. 

Valentino in Paris was "calf-length skirts, handkerchief hems, knee-length boots, Little Red Riding Hood capes, crazy coats, skirts’n’sweaters, polo-necks, blanket coats, sensible handbags." Also Rihanna. Lots of Rihanna.
