Grand Luxury Store kicks off London Fashion Week at Somerset House. The New York collections are wrapping up and now we’re happy to move on to one of the most exciting cities in the fashion capitals. From Erdem to Roland Mouret to Preen to Peter Pilotto to Mary Katrantzou, Luxury brand store is happy to be take part in this exciting event during this exciting time. Hope on the tube and take the circle line to Temple, because The Strand is where all the action happens. From September 13th – 17th is the streets start to sparkle with glitter and colours.
Last year’s front row was packed with a slew of celebrities. Since London is slowly becoming the rising start of the collections, some of the most important faces in the industry have made their way to this side of town. Tom Ford shows collections here, Burberry has now come back to London, and a roster of designers and publications now come to town to make launch events and make things happen. London’s streets are filled with blog-worthy outfits and the most vivacious characters you’ll ever come across in your entire life.
And now, what to wear! We’ve spotted a gorgeous cape dress at Luxury brand store by Peter Pilotto. Come on, you don’t have to worry about looking outlandish, the more of a peacock you are, the better your chances of being spotted by some of the world’s most celebrated street style photographers. Make like Anna Del Russo and wear that Peter Pilotto dress with a pair of Charlotte Olympia’s skyscraping heels, then accessorise with a Victoria Beckham clutch. If you want something slightly – but not too slight – more subtle, you can also try Peter Pilotto’s Corrine cape dress; you can wear it with a stunning Galiztine cape and for ultra elegance some Oscar de la Renta jewellery.
The city’s accessory trend focuses on the punk aesthetic reminiscent of its icon Debbie Harry – home to iconic brands Diane von Furstenberg, Carolina Herrera and Yohji Yamamoto. Insider the issue, you’ll find out about what-to-wear in NYC’s Meatpacking District along with the Upper East Side.
