My LFWM started with an intimate but noisy soirée at Private White’s flagship Duke Street store on Friday, but the rest of the action kicked off back at the Truman Brewery on the Saturday. My first show HLA X AEX by JD.com was a masterpiece in tailoring and expertly styled by the ever consistent Rebekah Roy.
Next up, a modern utopian aesthetic at St Henri. Followed by a runway show from one of my all time favourite brands – Iceberg, for me, Iceberg is the gift that keeps on giving. In a notoriously fickle industry, Iceberg continue to remain relevant, current and nail it consistently every season. Their pieces are infinitely wearable across both age and gender and the hair looks? Mastery itself – I was incredibly fortunate to be able to interview the man responsible for these masterpieces, John Vial. He explained the inspo behind these was punk meet sloan- where the punks of Kings Road hang out with the sloanes of Knightsbridge.
As if all that weren’t enough, my day finished at The British Library with Charles Jeffrey – this boy is a GENUIS, there’s no two ways about it. His shoes are pure theatre and evoke memories of McQueen for their bold political statements. Hair once again by the man of the hour, John Vial who described the inspo behind the looks as being heavily influenced by the Artist Arnulf Rainer, famed for his abstract work .
Sunday was much lower key for me with a very quirky presentation at Michiko and an impressive runway show back at the Truman for Oliver Spencer. I had standing room only for this but I will never turn down an allocation and the drinks and Canapés after were a lovely gesture & finishing touch to my LFWM this season.
