London Fashion Week SS12: Paul Smith #LFW

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on September 19th, 2011

All shows running horribly late, in the middle of a massive downpour, guests frantically made their way into the Royal Horticultural Halls to catch Paul Smith’s latest show. Some looked pretty dishevelled and plenty of seats were left empty, which is a shame, as it was one of his better collections of late.

With the androgynous look being quite a trend at the moment, Paul Smith did what he does best: beautiful tailoring. It’s never about creating big trends or jaw-dropping pieces, but it’s all about the perfect trousers, the perfect shirt and the perfect jacket.   The boyish looks were finished with fedora’s, loosely buttoned up shirts, messy hair and with brogues and loafers instead of silly high heels. For the girly-girls there was a range of pretty shirtdresses and calf-length floaty skirts, but mostly what I take from this collection is Paul Smith’s single-handed reinvention of the summer trousers.

LFW: ShinyStyle’s best designer catwalk items

By Andrea Petrou on September 22nd, 2010

It’s been a whirlwind of leather, flirty girly dresses, lace, leopard print and some very eccentric designs, but now LFW is drawing slowly to a close.

Burberry, David Koma and Paul Smith came out trumps with their collections giving us a range of ready to wear designs coupled with some more eccentric catwalk pieces while Erdem and Ashish pulled out all the stops with their collections.

And lets not forget the pretty pieces from Mulberry and Nicole Farhi.
We could be here all day talking about the collections (if you want to see individual reports check out our  LFW highlights), so instead we’ve put together a gallery of our favourite outfits from the catwalks.

Take a look and tell us if you agree.

Trend Alert: SS2010 Trouser styles and how to wear them

By Andrea Petrou on May 6th, 2010

May is now in full bloom and before we know it the summer months will be upon us. Although the weather is currently not up to much, we’re hoping that we’ll have a heatwave in the next few weeks meaning we can wear our summer style in comfort.

In our excitement to bring you all the latest summer styles such as highwaisted skirts, shorts and maxi dresses, we neglected a key wardrobe must-have for the next few months and that’s of course trousers.

The spring/summer catwalks gave us a huge insight into what we can expect to see and what we should be wearing. Gucci, Missoni and Burberry bought us harem pants, which were either patterned, giving a nod to the tribal trend, or sophisticated and plain.

Designer favourite Balmain as well as Sportmax and Paul and Joe, updated the skinny, adding a khaki military twist and Paul Smith opted for the classic capri pant.

However, one of the most daring trouser trends this year has got to be the floral look as sported by models on the DKNY catwalk.

We’ve put together a gallery of the designer trends and matched them up to the hottest highstreet versions out there as well as giving you a few hints and tips along the way on how to wear each trend and what to avoid depending on your body shape.

Paul Smith’s spring line at London Fashion Week

“Hockney meets Bloomsbury,” said designer Paul Smith of his spring women’s wear collection, which showed during London Fashion Week. For those of you who didn’t live in North London when you were a baby, like I did, Smith’s comment translates to low-end meets high-end. Colors were primary and bright, formal wear met casual wear, and Iekeliene Stange opened the show wearing circular Harry Potter glasses and a bow tie.
