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!

Ports1961 Spring & Summer 2019

With clothes that we could possibly imagine wearing to or having our guests wear to a brunch at our place, the Ports1961 collection for the upcoming season has some phenomenal clothes with great styling and accessories.

 

Of all the designers we saw, if we had to pick the one with the greatest range in terms of “design” – be it as drapes or silhouettes, cuts or even necklines, we would have to pick Ports1961. Ranging over lovely, knit one-shoulder seperates to completely formal, high waisted suits, Ports1961 offers to us a lot of commercial pieces with great design elements.

 

The only complaint that some of us had while watching the collection was that there seemed to be a tab bit too much of the fringe detailing in use – everywhere. The skirts, the tops, the dresses – well, even some accessories.

 

While each individual piece of the collection looked fabulous, there were some styling and accessorizing issues in the creation of the overall looks, especially where two or more statement prints were matched. That said, however, we did like the range of clothes – from outer wear to dresses and would have loved to see more of the collection long after the showcase was over.

 

In conclusion, there is little that we have to complain about, in the Ports 1961 collection this year. It is fashionably forward, has great design and even surprises us with the detailing on some of the clothes. If this sounds like something you would wear, it would make sure you don’t miss out on Ports1961 this season.

 

Overall Impression – 9/10

Favourite Pieces – blue dress with the interesting neckline, the coats, etc

Simone Rocha Spring & Summer 2019

Oscillating between well made shapes in the clothes and having as much shape as a shower curtain draped on a girl, the collection of Simone Rocha for Spring and Summer of 2019 has quite the extremes and none in between them.

 

The biggest problem addressed first, we couldn’t understand who the woman or women wearing these clothes were, where she/they could possibly be going and what their objective of wearing these clothes were. While we couldn’t come to a conclusive answer ourselves, we sincerely hope the designers did; though given the collection, it’s hard to say.

 

The good ones in the collection – the clothes that look like they were designed for 2018 – are quite wearable, commercial and appropriate for a lot of formal events and for those who like to be more conservative with their formal-wear. They are even good enough to be seen on page 3 socialites and celebrities, no doubt.

 

On the flip side, however, there are also designs that look like recycled throwaways from the 1920s, somewhere in the world and even our grandmothers would probably frown at their make and shape – if not for the cloth or material itself.

 

While we have no problem with conservative collections at all (and would personally love to see some good, show less skin fashion along with dresses that do expose some skin), it is important not to make such pieces not look old, matronly or costume like; much worse, all three.

 

To us, there were some pieces in this showcase that we would love to own and wear – and some that we sincerely hope we never have to see again. Until next season, when we hope we will see a better collection from Simone Rocha, we are going to go and swing between loving and hating these pieces.

 

Overall Impression – 6/10

Favourite Pieces – the rose petals on black, the red with white florals, the classic white with a veiled hat.

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.

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!

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

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

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.
