London Fashion Week: Antonio Berardi

The Antonio Berardi catwalk show was one of the most eclectic collections from London Fashion Week.  The designer was able to effect an almost extravagant elegance with his wonderful abstract  and floral prints as well as his detailed embellishments.  I particulalry liked the subtle eastern influence in the cuts and prints of some of the pieces from the collection. Berardi's SS15 collection was anything but boring showcasing a wide spectrum of colours from navy blue to blush, the designer proved himself a true artisan of the craft showing an impressive variation not only in inspiration but in aesthetic. He presented a collection that ranged from tailored suits and trousers to flirty, feminine midi skirts and frocks in a variety of prints and colours and managed to maintain a story line and cohesiveness throughout the entire collection.

NIGHT OUT IN CENTRAL


Hi guys! It's been all Fashion Week and runways this month on Sapphire Brushstrokes, so I decided to share a quick style update. I drummed up this not so recent shot of me from a night out  in Covent Garden with some friends.  I'm wearing my saddle brown and turquoise leopard print shirt over white pants and one of my favorite heels. The whole look was a bit of an odd pairing and I love it now, as much as I did then. Enjoy the last day of the week and stay tuned for more London Fashion Week Updates.

London Fashion Week : Roksanda Ilincic


 London Fashion Week after 5 days and multiple shows came to an end today. I had planned to do a round-up of London Fashion Week featuring my top catwalk shows and collection but I decided instead to take a closer look at 2 or 3 of my favorite shows individually before the roundup. At the top of this list is the SS15 Roksanda Ilincic collection. The burst of colours, geometric prints and soft sculptural details  was a re-education on Spring/Summer fashion.The collection has a strong playful and vibrant quality that doesn't detract from it's sophistication and elegance. Roksanda Ilincic has been a long time favorite of mine, so it was great to see her put a fresh and more practiced spin on her signature use of prints and her sculptural aesthetic.

NYFW REVIEW: DELPOZO SS15


The Delpozo SS15 catwalk show  had to be one of my favorite catwalk shows from the Mercedes-benz New York Fashion Week. The collection showcases a strong feminine ethos with a lovely masculine undertone. There was a good mix of strong and delicate in the choice of fabrics as well as colours for the collection. The attention to detail in the embroidery and beading,  along with the bows and applique have a beautiful and feminine delicacy to them . A delicacy which Creative Director Josep Font,  balances out with clean, strong cuts and edges, that along side the geometric shapes, bring a much appreciated masculinity to the collection. The Delpozo SS15 collection is utterly feminine, strong and dynamic.
