LFW 4 – CHRISTIAN DIOR X MCQUEEN

LFW 4 – CHRISTIAN DIOR X MCQUEEN

Look 4 has to be one of the most beautiful items of clothing I have ever worn – and I’ve worn a lot. This Dior blouse is something that wouldn’t seem out of place in an exhibition. Very relevant as the Dior exhibition had just landed in London V&A museum which I still need to go see!

The billowing sleeves is something I want to take into this season – pairing this style underneath sleeveless knits would look adorable! Lacing as well is huge on the highstreet at the moment – Zara is full of incredible lace suits you need to check out!

I’ve done my usual trick of tying a good old Primark belt round the middle. I love styling oversized pieces and drawing them in round the middle to really emphasise the waistline. For those of you wondering how I style my belts like this – I simply nudge the metal clasp to the side then tie it in a knot (it’s a lot simpler than it seems).

Let’s talk about day 4 catwalk! David Koma was a firm favourite with mostly monochrome and a very structured military feel to most of the tailoring. I loved everything about this collection but mostly the sleeves! The oversized arms, the puffs, and also the asymmetrical butterflies were just so good!

There was definitely a lot of colour popping and blocking going on. Either one colour (usually neutral tones) or a big contrast of bright popping colours. I love the all tan look and I’ve seen it throughout the week so I’m going to put it out there that it will be a huge trend continuing through the year.

JW Anderson killed it this year – I mean just look at the catwalk images below! From the colour combinations to the silhouette everything was on point. You already know how much of a fan I am of the wide waist belt so to see it in so many different ways has me excited to experiment even more with it!
