Seoul Fashion Week Runway Review – Andy & Debb

Designers Kim Seok Won and Yoon Won Jung designed an entire collection around golfwear. Golf. Seriously. And it worked. I liked it (I hate sports, and sportswear so this is a plus one in my books).

Seoul Fashion Week Runway Review – J Koo

Sports, lace, water colour prints. That's what J Koo was all about this season. Lace, frills and pleating were strategically placed to give a feminine, almost lingerie feel to otherwise sporty looks. Paired with oversized anoraks, soft jersey dresses and jumpsuits, the bustier details created a perfect balance between separate pieces as well a coherence amongst the rest of the collection.

Seoul Fashion Week Runway Review – Ultimo SS16

Designer Kim Dong Soon of Ultimo proves fashion is all about the details.

The show started off with gorgeous feathered masks among sheer black tops with gorgeous beadwork, and ended with romantic sheer dresses and flowing chiffon skirts with soft floral prints (which could easily be layered over those gorgeous black tops from before). But not everything had such a romantic vibe. Ultimo quickly switched to summer themes reminiscent of a vacation to the white sand beaches of Cuba. Flowing ponchos, over-sized, western belts paired with pepper necklaces and bohemian tasseled blouses were all seen before Ultimo once again moved on to retro inspired work wear. Polka dots, swing coats and red leather detailing made this a memorable part of show, until once again, black and white romantic ensembles came out.

Seoul Fashion Week Runway Review – ROMANCHIC SS16

ROMANCHIC... It almost sounds like "romantic" doesn't it? And let me tell you, the ROMANCHIC show was definitely romantic. All white monotone looks mixed with cotton candy pastels and bold coloured florals against a simple backdrop of black. Basically... all my favourite trends at the moment in one show. In other words, I loved it.

Favourites from Paris Fashion Week

Paris fashion week is definitely my favourite of all the fashion weeks. The designers create detailed, yet laid back outfits – most of which are totally wearable. This year, I'm all about sheer, flowing layers (aren't I always?), suede (my new obsession), and feminine, yet sporty looks. 

Personally, Alexander Wang at Balenciaga does this best, and I'll be sad to see him go (isn't the dress above gorgeous?!). Balenciaga quickly became a favourite of mine with Wang at the helm, but I can't wait to see who picks up the lead next! 

Chanel was also a hit with me this year. Lagerfield outdid himself with the airport theme – combining classic Chanel style with comfy flight wear. Patterned track pants or wide legged – everything was to die for. Definite must haves for those who travel a lot (ok, maybe just those who travel a lot and can afford Chanel).
