Jasper Conran Spring & Summer 2019

Of all the collections we saw from the London Fashion week, the one collection that we thought was most encompassing of different kinds of apparel needed in the Spring and Summer of 2019 was the Jasper Conran.

 

While some of us jokingly called it the “One Stop Shop for Spring Summer 2019” the versatility of the styles and the colours showcased leaves the name not too far away from being true. Shirts, skirts, dresses, pants, shorts – all the clothes you need – in sporty, chic, formal trendy and fresh – all the styles you need them to be for summer. We couldn’t have asked for more.

 

What we liked the best about the collection was that it gives a lot of variety and a lot of different options for men and women a like. Unlike a lot of collections seen in the past by various design houses and designers, there was no concentration of women’s clothing over men’s or vice versa. If anything, there were so many great gender neutral pieces in this – that people of both genders could completely rock without a doubt – that we wanted to shop the collection immediately!

 

Without giving too much away, for this is a collection we would sincerely like for you to see for yourself, we’ll tell you this: For those who don’t like a lot of embellishments and have a more minimalistic approach to clothing, there is no brand or collection that we would recommend more than Jasper Conran.

 

Sure, they might not be the most “fashionably” designed clothes for those who aren’t too fond of subtle expressions, these can surely help you find your dose of colour and insipation for the upcoming season. What do we say.. We’re just really excited to see more from the house of Jasper Conran next season and can’t for more!

 

Overall Impression – 9.5/10

Favourite Pieces – All vertical striped pieces, the black graphic men’s t-shirt, all silver outfit for men and a whole lot of others!

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!

Delpozo Spring & Summer 2019

If you’ve been looking for clothes for special occasions that are flashy, then the Delpozo Spring Summer 2019 collection is just for you. Oozing class and sophistication, this collection showcases pieces and looks that are fit to be work to tea with the Queen. Don’t believe us yet, oh you will, soon!

 

The designs themselves are soft, flowy, feminine and yet, vibrant in their own way. With classic make-up and styling, the only thing that kept getting in the way of the looks in the presentation were the head gear used. However, the uniformity seen in the styling and accessorizing helps to keep the focus on the actual apparel intact.

 

Coming to the pieces and looks, they are extremely neatly constructed and have quite a range as far as diversity go. Even with heavy prints and bold colours, the looks are muted, mature and toned down in a way that screams elegance and luxury. The single biggest achievement of the designers here, is in marrying prints and colours without them looking forced or out of place. This, combined with great design, makes for a wonderful collection.

 

All said and done, the Delpozo collection is nothing short of stunning. The showcase was very cohesive and beautiful and the harmony in the looks was hard to miss. This is why, we are willing to go out on a limb and assume that a lot of events and galas next season will have celebrities wear these dresses, while you and I also sit around to watch people we know about, looking beautiful in these creations.

 

Overall Impression – 8.5/10

Favourite Pieces – pale pink dress, white and red check dress

Lunyee Spring & Summer 2019

Given the number of designers who worked on this collection and the level of cohesion and harmony they were able to achieve, Lunyee was the collection that surprised us the most this season. Where we expected a steady flow like any other collection, this showcase with both men and women’s wear was indeed a much welcome sort of ‘calm’ amidst the storm of this year’s London Fashion week.

 

Despite the many cooks who could have potentially spoilt this broth, there was finesse in the work and execution of the clothes and a clash-free clarity in the ideas presented. The range, diversity and versatility of having multiple designers work on the project were not only beneficial but also greatly appreciated by the spectators.

 

There were no trashy pieces in the collection from what we can tell – just pieces we prefer over most others. However, there were some major “Oh No!” moments too, such as with the translucent rain-coat type top for men, the shiny fringe detailing on a jacket, etc.

 

Despite all this, Lunyee managed to give us a collection we can look forward to own and rock, next season. The range, quality and look of the materials, the functionality and the ease of the clothing presented make the range desirable and hence, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of people in Lunyee’s clothes, this spring summer.

 

Overall Impression – 8.5/10

Favourite Pieces – Blue and black dress, icy blue dress, pale pink piece, new version of the LBD, one shoulder white top, beige cape top and so many more!

Matty Bovan Spring & Summer 2019

The first phrase that comes to mind when we think of this time’s Matty Bovan collection, is – Over The Top (OTT). With crazy hats and loud colours, the whole presentation looked like a siesta and not in the way we would have liked it to!

 

Although the clothes presented were interesting and unique and had great detailing, there was barely anything practical about them – in the purpose they were serving. Clearly not for those faint hearted, lovely people who like the traditional way of life, the collection, despite being so easily on the costume-y verge of things, there was no doubt about the effectiveness of the startling factor.

 

That said, there were some very wearable pieces which were rather time-period inspired but had the potential to be styled down. Others, however, were quite elaborate as well as eccentric – and we’re pretty sure some of them defied the laws of gravity in the most hilarious way possible.

 

The single biggest issue that we had with the collection wasn’t the craziness or the loudness of the colours and designs. Instead, it was that in each look, we couldn’t decide where to look, because there was so much going on! With practically everything on display questionable and curious, there are very few people we can think of who would actually wear these pieces – especially together. If you are one of those people, go ahead and have fun with these… but, as for the rest of us, we’d like to pass this one… thanks!

 

Overall Impression – 4/10

Favourite Pieces – Can’t pick any.. because didn’t really like any.

Halpern Spring & Summer 2019

The most eye catching element of the Halpern collection this year, is the amount of glitter and bright colours it showcased. Not ones to shy away from a little bit of glitz and a lot of drama, the pieces showcased in this collection were surprisingly appealing, despite being in a range of extremely flashy designs.

 

That said, though, there was a very graceful quality about the presentation that gave us slightly retro vibes without actually looking retro. Despite all this said and done, there were also some very cringe worthy pieces – such as an almost plastic looking baby blue dress.

 

Even if the collection had some great styling and accessorizing, these have only augmented the beautiful construction of the clothes and the clearly visible thought process behind them. Sure, subtle may not be a word in the dictionary of this collection’s makers – but noticeable certainly is.

 

Not taking away too much from what the brand has put forward, there is no doubt in saying that this is a very evident spring summer collection. While a lot of people might find it unappealing to even consider pulling off bold, bright stripes and prints – for those who do, this year, the Halpern Collection is a real treat indeed!

 

Overall Impression – 7/10

Favourite Pieces – black and white dress with pink vest; blue and red striped dress with white vest; yellow and blue dress; all the asymmetric hems.

J JS Lee Spring & Summer 2019

If there is anything that struck us at first sight about this year’s J JS Lee collection, it’s the interesting shades of colour in which the piece were designed. With new sleeve cuts that are borderline crazy but very fresh, the collection was quite a pleasant one to watch and review amidst some rather disappointing ones.

 

The entire showcase was not only commercial, but also very fashionable. With lovely coral pinks and some dashing men’s wear pieces too, this was the collection that looked the most comfortable to wear – among all the showcases.

 

Even with all this going on, the designers managed to bring in some prints and stripes into the collection too, without ruining the flow or the harmony of the collection. This was rather commendable, we thought – as it could have gone terribly wrong if not handled well and executed with finesse. This, balanced out by at least 8 all white ensembles, show us the versatility of the design aesthetic of the brand.

 

Though the styling and accessorizing of the showcase was nothing to write home about – or even remember, for that matter, the overall looks curated from the collection were quite appealing. More than anything else, the whole collection gave the impression of a well-thought out affair and we couldn’t be happier to recommend to you a collection for those looking for comfort while being a little ‘risque’ with their fashion.

 

Overall Impression – 8/10

Favourite Pieces – White shirt – pink skirt combo; blue dress with grey collar; suits!

Jamie We: Huang Spring & Summer 2019

Encompassing bright blues, crisp whites, some pastels and even some pinks, the Jamie We: Huang Collection this year can easily be called “Burberry goes on Vacay” – in the loveliest sense possible. From the unique accessories to the impeccable styling, the show left spectators wanting to see more – even after the last model walked back.

 

Some of the pieces that were highly appreciated by the spectators at large, at the showcase include the electric blue dress paired with an oversized white shirt, the white blouse paired with a grey flannel like skirt, the pantsuit seperates, the denim and grey patchwork themed dress and numerous others. However, parallelly, there were also some pieces that were heavily critiqued, such as the use of yellow thigh high boots and thigh high boots for a spring summer collection in general.

 

Taken as a whole, the collection had some very strong designs which were infused into commercial looks. Individual pieces were simple enough to own and yet, special enough to be designer. The fact that the styling and accessories (which were quite interesting themselves!) worked in the brands favour, shows that there is no doubt taste where the designs come from. Though not everyone will appreciate the intentionally rugged look use in the collection, there is nothing that can be counted ‘hideous’ or ‘unforgiveable’ – as the big names in the fashion industry would term them.

 

The collection, in all, is very cohesive, spring summer appropriate and presents some fresh designs. Whether people will be able to overlook their ‘faux-pas’ and actually wholeheartedly sport their pieces or not.. now that is a question only time can answer. All said and done, are their pieces that we would love to own from the collection? Absolutely. Can we envision any of these at the Cannes or Oscars? Maybe not from this season.

 

Overall Impression – 9/10

Favourite Pieces – All the striped pieces/looks, the sheer/peek-a-boo pieces.

Jenny Packham Spring & Summer 2019

After a seventeen season hiatus from fashion week, when Jenny Packham showcased this season, the collection was not special for this reason alone. The company, which celebrates its thirtieth anniversary this year, set up this special showcase at their flagship store in London.

 

The collection, inspired by Jean Harlow (yes – the Hollywood icon from the 1930s who is also known for making the ‘Platinum Blond’ an iconic hair trend), is not literal in its inspiration but the elements used are evident enough. There are fun, flirty dresses as well as chic, sophisticated ones in the range and without fail, there seems to be a vintage Hollywood inspired dresses for every occasion.

 

In essence, the collection is iconic in its own right and the outfits are not only easy to carry off, but also easy to style. The dresses, the styling and the accessories are feminine, delicate and undoubtedly beautiful – without seeming like something a damsel in distress would wear. A lot of the people who viewed the collection also commended how easy the pieces are to style and yet, have enough character to be left on their own too – a fact we wholeheartedly second.

 

So this season, if you are looking to be trendy in a classic sort of way, you will need to look no further from Jenny Packham. In this comeback – and what a brilliant comeback it Is, indeed! – we are so happy await the next collection of the brand, which will also hopefully be at a fashion week next season.

 

Overall Impression – 8/10

Favourite Pieces – White petal detailed gown; Silver Party Gown; Smoke themed gown.

Mary Katrantzou Spring & Summer 2019

The pieces showcased at the Mary Katrantzou collection this year were quite a refreshing surprise. With bold prints in a range of fabrics – from flowy to stiff – the collection made quite the statement at the week.

 

While some designs were fun and easy going, with a dash of dare, others were clean, sophisticated and classy. It is no doubt that a lot of these pieces have the potential to make it to Cannes, the Oscars and all such contemporary events and galas, this upcoming season.

 

The best part about the showcase has to be the styling which was not too overbearing so as to make the clothes look inferior, but kept noticeable enough to draw our attention away from each look – even if for just a second. Even for the slightly cringe-worthy pieces, there was nothing we could complain about with the styling.

 

Some of the most spoken about pieces from the collection were the nude and beige shaded dresses, not to mention the sheers that were showcased. However, something a lot of people did not seem to like were the plastic, rain coat like designs that stuck out like a sore thumb in an otherwise polished showcase.

 

Concluding thoughts we have on the collection is that this season, Mary Katrantzou is definitely going to make as many fashion lovers happy as they will upset. While everyone may not like everything from this collection, there is at least one piece in there.. for everyone!

 

Overall Impression – 7.5/10

Favourite Pieces – Floor length black gown with multiple coloured vertical panels, cinched at the waist.

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
