London Fashion Week has come to a close. The curtain has come down on the capital’s stylish offerings for Autumn/Winter 2017. As always, designers have left us with memories of ground breaking shows and anticipating the season to come. As is tradition, we were treated to some pioneering street style looks. LFW’s blogger, editor and buyer parades are renowned for playful and experimental looks. This season was no different. Big stories were ‘playing with proportions’, ‘bows and ties’ and ‘colour popping’. This look bravely, and effectively, combines all three and is one of my favourites from the style stream. Hues of brown and beige, including a camouflage tee, are artfully contrasted with a bright red clutch and heels. The over-sized over-coat is not over-the-top, it works successfully on this long legged fashionista. The cuffs are cinched with a large scale bow – THE detailing of the season.
This 1900s Art Nouveau necklace from Gemma Redmond Vintage would work with this laid-back, but detailed, outfit. The tones in the necklace compliment the colours of the look – especially those chic brown suede trousers. And the long-line design of the piece, further enhanced by the extra-long tassel, continues the theme of out-sized and billowing fabrics.
