LFW day 3: the lady

The inimitable Dame Vivienne Westwood and Marios Schwab, both based their shows on a (slightly eccentric) lady.

Westwood’s Red Label show included new variations of the designer’s signature dress shapes and this show has become more about celebrating an icon rather than creating ‘new’ trends like other designers. Having defined ‘fashion’, Red Label is now outside of it.

But the collection was more prim and less punk than in previous years – think a rebellious Mary Poppins?! The colour palette was also less red tartan and more rich autumnal shades. We’re sure Helena Bonham Carter will be snapping up the lot!

Love this look

The eccentric lady, complete with hat

A modern classic

Marios Schwab’s ‘lady’ was elegant (a hint of 1920s Great Gatsby fever perhaps?) in sleek dresses that were structured but not armored. Sheer panels with simple decoration also ramped up the feel of minimalistic glamour.

Almost vintage Dior-esque?

Great Gatsy?

Amazing sheer detailing

It would not be LFW without Paul Smith and as always his lady was more androgynous and cool, this time with geek chic style specs and a hint of the secretarial about her. Love it!

So simple but totally Paul Smith
