Peter Pilotto Spring & Summer 2019  

With sophisticated, clean design – the Peter Pilotto collection this season must be commended on its drapes, before anything else. With materials that flow as well as those that hold form rather beautifully, the rather small but remarkable collection may not be everyone’s cup of tea to wear – but it certainly can be appreciated by everyone.

 

Showcasing a majority of dresses and a few pant-suits, the traditionally cut frames and silhouettes work well for the brand. Be it in terms of the beautiful lines in the jackets or even the floral almost-maxi dresses, the pieces are unique and memorable.

 

As far as the styling of the collection goes, there is a lot of sensible thought that has gone into making each model look like a girl walking down the boulevard on a sunny day. The individual styles are not excessive and apt for the respective dresses. The only plausible cause of concern for a lot of people about this collection would be the slight lack of accessorizing or the fact that where accessories are used, they seem to blend into the overall look.

 

In all, the collection is for the plain Jane-s who want to have a little fun without losing their plainness – and we mean this in the best way possible. If you’re looking for some classic pieces and don’t mind being more on the traditional side of life, remember to take a look at this collection in time for next season!

 

Overall Impression – 6.5/10

Favourite Pieces – the (slightly shiny) blue dress, black and white striped suit

That’s about it from our end for this one, folks! We are eager to know what you think, so feel free to let us know!

David Koma Spring & Summer 2019

In a cohesive collection that can easily be called “dedicated to ruffles” David Koma, this season gives us some major goals in terms of summer fashion and some not so fancy pieces. The collection, besides having a harmony in the presented clothes, also serve well as individual looks that can be recreated by queens and commoners alike.

 

Easy, light make up and carefully chosen sparse accessories help us focus on the clothes and this strategy works in the favour of the brand. Although there are some eyebrow raising choices of colour amidst an otherwise ‘clearly for summer’ collection, the finesse in the design and the detailing gives us enough reason to look past the scheme.

 

The choice of material has been safe in this collection – there aren’t any daring materials used, which is sensible considering the almost OTT (over the top) number of ruffles seen in the collection. However, what is presented is fancy and there is no doubt in the taste and design aesthetic the brand represents.

 

With some slightly more flashy and daring pieces too, David Koma SS19 has not let us down. Is this the best collection we have seen? No where close; but is this a collection we can wear ourselves and have in our wardrobe over the next three summers? Yes.. Absolutely.

 

Our conclusion: If you are looking for the next nice set of dresses to hang in your bedroom that you can rely on to make you look sophisticated at tea parties and weddings alike, this collection is for you. However, if you give a lot of weightage to the “wow” element when it comes to your clothes, maybe you will need to wait a little longer if you are a patron of David Koma.

 

Overall Impression – 6.5/10

Favourite Pieces – the little white dresses, the sequined pieces and the black peplum crop top

Ashley Williams Spring & Summer 2019

If you’re looking for designs that make you squirm in your seat and make people uneasy, this season’s Ashley Williams Collection is just for you. With a range of colours (really.. range!) and prints in materials that border on “questionably cheap”, the beauty of a lot of the pieces is lost in the material used.

 

From newspaper prints to very bold animal prints, the collection uses myriad designs and styles for the presented looks – most of which either border on outdated or are just.. tacky. That said, there are some wonderful; salvageable pieces too – such as crop tops, netted skirts and even some swimwear with words. All of these can be recycled if styled will with things that actually accentuate them instead of making them look messy.

 

Coming to the styling, the accessories and the hair on the models was absolutely shocking – and not in a good way. Dazzling diamonds that remind us of all our fashion blunders back in 2005, not to mention hair styled enough to stick up in perfectly straight ponytails pointing to the roof – yes, an absolute recipe for disaster. Worse, words such as crazy in bedazzled hair accessories is the last thing we want to be seen wearing – with our lounge wear this summer.

 

All said and done, the one thing that cannot be taken away from the brand is how well it works with silhouettes and how good its construction is. While most of us would never dream of wearing over eighty percent of this collection, there is still a small part of our more adventurous souls who will rock those “Retired and loving it” clothes.

 

Overall Impression – 5.5/10

Favourite Pieces – Newspaper print dress, summer dresses, grey bell sleeved top

Gareth Pugh Spring & Summer 2019

If there is one collection that screams “Deadpool meets Rock Chick”, it is this!

 

This collection was by far our favourite one to watch – not for the pieces it showcased but for the entertainment value and the sheer fact that every piece that walked out, caught our attention and go “Oh!”

 

While these pieces may not be things you can wear on an everyday basis, these are definitely high fashion, new and highly editorial. For those looking for a rock chic, warrior princess look – there couldn’t be a better designer and/or collection to look at.

 

Though some might argue that the pieces were not the most sober, for people who celebrate eccentricity, these are a true treat. Most important element throughout the show has been the fluidity in the collection and how cohesive it has turned out to be.

 

It is going to take a while for us to get over this brilliant (albeit slightly impractical) collection – but needless to say, we are most certainly looking forward to their next showcase!

 

Overall Impression – 7/10

Favourite Pieces – Hot Pink full sleeve mini, Black bleached design dress.

Julien Macdonald Spring & Summer 2019

One of our favourite showcases at the London Fashion Week, Julien Macdonald not only had quite a few famous faces walking for them, but also did complete justice to the anticipation with which their fans awaited this collection.

The clothes showcased for both men and women in the line are sure to set the trend for all the parties and the “happening” events this summer. With unparalleled construction and luxury dripping from every stitch, the looks presented were not only aspirational but also very functional.

 

The collection has also managed to show some very sparkly and traditionally non-masculine pieces in a very structured and masculine way. To balance that, there are also some phenomenal pieces which have no glitter but could give all the shiny pieces a run for their money in the glamour quotient.

 

The best part about this collection isn’t how useful or how diverse it is – but rather, at how well the fabrics used in making the pieces have been manipulated to give the world a collection that screams “Hey – we’re different; but we’re together”.

 

If you’re looking for some awesome inspiration for your party wear this summer, you now know where to look!

 

Overall Impression – 8.5/10

Favourite Pieces – Mustard dress (women); Red Embellished Jacket (men)

Alexa Chung Spring & Summer 2019

Ranging from absolutely pale pastels to shiny black coats in an unforgivable material, while the Alexa Chung collection may be “commercial” in a lot of ways, there was nothing distinct about it.

 

Even though the construction and the taste in clothes was decent, there was not one piece in the whole showcase that has not been seen before in the world of fashion – be it in terms of design, styling or the material used.

 

That said, there are some great pieces in there but not something worth remembering the brand or the designer by. The styling of the showcase too complimented the collection to the extent that it was nothing to talk about the next day.

 

For those looking for a more modest and slightly matronly approach to life this Summer, do let us know if there are any pieces we missed – but until then, we’ll be around, hoping for a better collection from this fabulous brand, next season.

 

Overall Impression – 3.5/10

Favourite Pieces – nothing that stands out, but the brown printed halter neck dress – maybe.

Roland Mouret Spring & Summer 2019

With impeccably styled models and a very light and breezy feel to the entire collection, once again, Roland Mouret makes the audience go “Wow” with the spring summer collection. While the designs have the cleanliness the brand is known for, the Roland Mouret Spring Summer 2019 girl is happy, bright and luxurious.

 

Interesting drapes used in subtle ways to enhance otherwise seemingly ordinary clothes off a rack, the line does justice to the expectations of the clients. While there are some pieces that do not go well in the perspective of cohesion, there is no doubt that they are all from the same brand.

 

From wide legged pants with sunglasses to pastel dresses with a little peek-a-boo detail on the shoulder, the collection presented has a happy-go-lucky feel to it. While this may not be the absolute best that Roland Mouret has had to offer, the fact that their clothes functioned well in an outdoor showcase where the strong wind of the evening could have made things go very wrong shows that patrons of the brand haven’t been wrong in placing their faith.

 

In essence, while all the looks of the collection are not for everyone, there is definitely something in the collection for everyone. One of the rare brands in whose collections individual pieces seem tacky but the overall look is appealing, you know where to look if you want a slightly classy, slightly eccentric look, this Summer!

 

Overall Impression – 7/10

Favourite Pieces – Pastel green one shoulder dress, Shiny silver shirt, little grey blue dress.

Malan Breton Spring & Summer 2019

One of the showcases that caught a lot of negative attention this season at the London Fashion Week was the Malan Breton showcase and we know why. While the collection was luxurious and used some phenomenally eye-catching material, the design element was where the brand lost all its points.

From Grecian to Victorian and old British designs, the collection failed to surprise or even satisfy the audience in a lot of ways. If the collection had to be summed up in a sentence, it would be “Prom girl meets business woman”.

 

Though a lot of individual pieces in the showcase were beautiful and aspirational – even, the entire show was a little over the top, when it comes down to it. With pieces that were in tacky yellow leather to some absolutely cringe worthy pieces, there was much disappointment in the people that left the venue that day.

 

However, that said, the brand did put forth some very strong style sensibilities and a distinct voice – even if that voice does not reverberate with a lot of people. For the ones willing to take some major (and we mean really major) risks in fashion this season, maybe you shouldn’t rule out this brand after all.

 

For the others, in the meantime, you can join us in praying that the next collection we see from Malan Breton is something that makes our eyebrows shoot skywards, for the right reasons.

 

Overall Impression – 6.5/10

Favourite Pieces – Leather with Tulle Skirt and Coat

I Am Chen Spring & Summer 2019

Out of all the collections that did surprise us this year, I Am Chen was amidst the most talked about brands. Bright and subtle, the construction of the clothes was beautiful – as were the styling and accessories.

 

The collection showcased a good mix of patterns – a very risky move which could have gone wrong very easily. However, this collection marries prints beautifully and has managed to achieve an unexpected harmony among the individual pieces and the complete looks.

 

One of the chief highlights of the collection is the fact that it has something for everyone – we can see everyone from housewives to Hollywood stars owning and using these clothes. That, and of course that the point of view and the design perspective are very clearly demonstrated without being overpowering.

 

Though a lot of people were of the opinion that some of the styling was a little too 90s for their liking, the overall collection is very easy, summery, breezy and more than anything, a great blend of editorial as well as commercial collection. There was a constant element of “Wow” throughout the collection – so if you’re looking for all of the mentioned elements this summer, you know where to look!

 

Overall Impression – 7.5/10

Favourite Pieces – All the dresses – especially the knee-length ones

Anissa Aida Spring & Summer 2019

From what little we know of the world of fashion and showcases, there was so much more we all hoped we would be able to see from Anissa Aida this season. However, not only were most of us let down but also slightly disappointed beyond repair at the way things turned out.

While the collection had a good mix of bright and dull colours that can pass off as summer appropriate, there were a lot of things that could have been better. From styling to makeup as well as the patchworks that were messy and not stylish, there was a lot of complain about.

 

That said, however, the only saving grace we could find was that the construction and tailoring on the clothes looked decent enough to pass off as “designer”. Yet, since there was nothing special or unusual in the range, there is little for us to look forward to until the next season.

 

So if unless you’re looking for some very matronly fits and badly styled pieces that don’t have enough character to be statement and neither are they plain enough to be styled with something else, maybe Anissa Aida will have to show us a different collection to win our approval.

 

Overall Impression – 4/10

Favourite Pieces – The coat dress with some patchwork on the back
