Milan - Pucci my favourite collection so far

Vanessa Paradis - Johnny Depps missus modelling my favourite dress

On quick inspection the show collection that stands out so far for me is Pucci. I love the lavish, glamourous, baroque sumptuousness of the collection, luxe velvets, satins and embellished details on a sexy flattering silhouette are a winning combination and shrewd investment buy if ones wants to look alluring, demure and fabulous.

MILAN - fashion week aw 11, day 4, 02/26/11


JBAG electro band that played during the show 
The male models walked very swiftly - a rumour had been circulating that LFW designers were asking the models to walk faster so that iphone images could not be got as the quality is so poor.

1980s styling main influence in this collection

bold, bright and optimistic styling

primary colours mixed with geometrics, note the shoulder pads

Electro girl

stripes and pattern clash
Urban hoody with fake fur detail
note the skirt tiered fluting and cut out bodice

Riot of colour stripes and geometric pattern.
Pop art on a dress
Gangster styling - 
a flattering dress

new romantics - clean and lean hair
This collection is influenced by 1986 graphics and styling - 

stylish - KTZ wants you to stand out from the crowd - it is a young confident label.

The KTZ parade
KTZ is a collaboration between Koji Maruyama, Sasko Bezovski and Marjan Pejoski.

KTZ is a confident new label and they have every reason to be so already having the label selling in their own retail network of cult stores ‘Kokon to Zai’, combinging music and fashion, based in London and Paris.
Marjan and Koji studied fashion design at Central Saint Martins while Sasa was studying architecture. They are the business minds that stand behind the KTZ brand.
Pop art meet 1980s new romantics - this collection does not 'fade to Grey'
Music is an important part in this label's creative evolution. The catwalk show was a fabulous spectacle of colour and everyone was tapping their feet to the electro beat music from JBAG or mix tape from Peaches that accompanied the show. KTZ was my last show and helped to end a brilliant London Fashion Week on a high.
Thank you to everyone who invited fashiontent to their shows - it was an amazing week.
Fashion always rises to the occasion and reflects the survival instinct of human creativity - The week was buzzing with optimism on to look at Milan, Paris and New York. I won't alas be going - too much to catch up in here!

LFW Day 6, Ones To Watch MEN - Asger Juel Larsen

Very rock and Roll !

show stopping detail - clever political messaging with sharks teeth!
check out those boots and great black leather jacket - where does he stock his collection please ? I know a few guys who would want to buy this
Sharks teeth top hat  - I like the chain mail effect knit gillet over the black denim jacket.

Perfect proportions on this coat, love the hat with it - so cool! I can see Russel Brand in this! 
flamboyant styling, clever references
leather and wool coat, good styling details 
references to American indians in the styling - so cool!
great styling
check out the back detail 
great coat here - like the leather trousers too - very rock and roll

Asger Juel Larsen, fashion fame beckons.....

 I really enjoyed the four shows presented by Vauxhall Fashion Scout on Wednesday afternoon in the Freemasons Hall, Covent garden. The last designer to show was Danish born Asger Juel Larsen with his Uncle Sam collection. I was blown away by the sheer flamboyance and originality of this talented designer. He did his MA at the London College of Fashion and gained a Harold Tillman CBE Scholarship soon after.
He also won joint  prize for an industry project with Turkish Luxe label Tween and reached the final stages  of the prestigious Mittlemoda Awards. As you can see Asger uses historic events as inspiration, he blends unusual materials to create a silhouette that is sharp and structured. If you look beneath the fabulously cool styling and clever political digs of this collection there are great clothes. This collection's styling is very rock and roll and would be great as a look for a band - I imagine many stylists will be clamouring to get to these clothes for editorial fashion shoots - I would like to see them in Dazed and LOVE magazine.I also tip Asger will be styling rock and roll musicians in the future, watch out Hedi Slimane  - Go and rule the fashion world Asger! 

Thank you to all of the great designers at Ones to Watch, we have so much talent in London.
