London Fashion Week Favorites So Far

Mario Schwab showed a line of cocktail dresses with a geological theme and faintly shifting layers.
After a successful season inspired by dinosaurs and gorillas, Christopher Kane's latest effort feels conservative. The neutral plaid remind me of my father's old cardigan, and this designer has produced vastly superior knits in the past. The sheer dresses with contrast trim, however, manage to be both classic Kane and refreshingly interesting. While I had wanted something more inventive from one of my favorite designers, this "greatest hits" show will extend Kane's commercial appeal.
At first glance, Giles Decon's runway was not cohesive. Turns out, he also presented a collection of throwbacks to his previous shows. It was hit and miss, but parts of the looks were quite pretty.
Ossie Clark was a colorful, cheerful spot for fall fashion. The coats are perfect for combating cold-weather blahs. The vintage-style dresses and and fun prints demand the attention of a certain fashion blogger named becca. Who else is in love with the adorable metallic shoes?
