London calling!

There are four biggest fashion weeks in the world- Milan, New York, Paris and London. They each host some of the largest catwalk shows by the world’s best designers. My second favorite one (New York comes first, sorry!) is London fashion week (LFW), that takes place twice a year and offers top international talents an opportunity to present their latest collections to a fashionable parade of global media representatives, industry buyers, bloggers, photographers and fashionistas.

For this feature, I chose top five collections that stood out this month on LFW. I am not a fan of romantic flowery prints, however I loved Bora Aksu’s S/S 2017 collection filled with wavy dresses and pastel colors. He won me over by mixing a bit of black into all of it. Here are my picks. Central Martin’s graduate really is a master of his trade.

Next one is Barbara Casasola’s collection, women’s ready-to-wear label that keeps stunning me with the simplicity of cuts and colors. Barbara makes all of the pieces in Italy with a special focus on fit, attention to detail and the finest materials available. It is both sensual and pared-down, masculine and feminine. She is known for strong contrasts that results in timeless, relaxed and elegant clothing.

Then comes David Koma, London based designer known for ultra body contouring silhouette. He designes sculptural statement dresses inspired by the feminine form. It is this design element that has projected David onto the international stage. (David, if you ever read this, please ship the entire collection to my address because I absolutely ADORE every single piece!)

The absolute star of the fourth day of LFW was the magnificent Burberry. Christopher Bailey’s creative vision is applied to all aspects of the brand. Even though I am not a huge fan of colors, I loved this vivid collection. Having in mind that some of the pieces are produced in Bosnia and Herzegovina, it makes me proud to see that my small country contributes to quality of this amazing brand.

Last but not least is Emilio de la Morena, another Saint Martin’s graduate who is, by nature, an intellectual designer whose passion lies in exploring new processes and ways of putting clothes together. He manages to create surprisingly sexy cocktail looks by modernizing old and obscure craftsmanship techniques. This collection gives of some serious 80’s vibe and I love it. It is reinforcing sensual femininity.
