Fantasy gowns and summer raves at London Fashion Week
LONDON (AFP) - There was something for everyone at London Fashion Week on Sunday, with fantasy gowns from Temperley London, cool elegance from Paul Smith and a vision of long summer days and heady nights from Topshop Unique.
In an old granary building behind King's Cross Station, Paul Smith kept to his signature style with a collection of elegant matching suits in vivid colours ranging from clean white and bright blue to sunshine yellow.
Transparent silk voile shirts were unbuttoned low to reveal a sliver of skin and tucked into high-waisted, 1970s-style wide trousers or shorts, for an effortless spring/summer cool.
Blocks of colour were interspersed with traditional patterns, from a silk mix jacket with a checkered print to a blouse printed with daffodils matched with wide yellow trousers.
