London Fashion Week
London Fashion Week is one of our favorites. Not only because of last year’s edition which was full of political messages concerning the Brexit, but also because London’s street style is very fashion forward. On top of this, the city’s citizens (just like its designers) are progressive when it comes to the future of fashion. During last year’s protests at the end of London Fashion Week, the fashion crowd was in shock. Slogans like “Settled deep in the hypocricy of it all you blame us; you say it’s what the people demand, put the people can’t see the forest for the trees” were chanted on the streets. Remarkably, many designers seemed to take notice and incorporated longterm sustainability plans in their latest collections.
Now let’s take a look at Victoria Beckham and MM6 Maison Margiela.
We have to admit that we’re huge fans of VB. Victoria Beckham has been an honored designer for a decade now, and we can conclude that she gets better and better. This collection consisted of feminine ensembles (as always) with a ’70s touch. Sophisticated chic with a very modern edge is what describes this collection best. Beckham designs female-central, meaning that she creates an attainable, yet feminine and chic wardrobe.
Beck in 2019, people were criticizing Beckham for being an ex-Spice Girl. Since then, she’s moved from tight dresses and ultra-feminine skirts to flowy and liberating garments. At the pre-viewing of her collection, Beckham said: “The silhouettes aren’t complicated, so I like to express myself by wearing color.” This sense of timelessness exactly captures what makes her designs so successful.
MM6 Maison Margiela
Circular fashion received a new meaning at the MM6 Maison Margiela show. Why? Because every garment was inspired by a circle shape – literally. From shirts till dresses to vests and trousers: a circle shaped pattern could be traced everywhere.
Likewise, the theme of the show was circular as well. The four rooms the models walked through, had different vibes. The models divided their time between disco, club and industrial vibes, together with a backstage part. The biggest thing of the show, however, was the collaboration with The North Face. As you might expect, these garments were circle-shaped as well. This collaboration showed the core of MM6 Margiela: reshaping a widely-beloved and know item to something new. Mission accomplished.
