London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 - Highlights Part 1

Fashion Month continues in the regal city of London, the central hub of avant-garde fashion. 
The "it" city at the moment was teaming with bloggers, fashion media, celebrities, buying teams and editors, all to see the latest collections of local establishing and prolific fashion designers.
The 5 day week consisted of shows from notable names and labels such as Willow, Fashion East, House of Holland, Moschino Cheap and Chic, J.JS Lee, Philip Treacy, Vivienne Westwood, Erdem, Pringle of Scotland, J.W. Anderson, KTZ, Margarett Howell, Antipodium and Mulberry.

I rounded up all my favourite looks from my favourite collections from London Fashion Week to give you a sneak peek of what's to come from the capital of eccentric fashion.

Sass & Bide Spring/Summer 2013

The Aussie design duo brought their unique mix of structural and feminine garments to London, further showing the potential and remarkable skill of Australian fashion designers. The garments are oddly feminine despite their stiff and architectural impression, with the minimal appearance of details such as floral cut outs, silver sequins and taffeta flowers creating that feminine undertone.

Unconditional Spring/Summer 2013

A variety of bold fashion choices for men were presented in this collection, with neon, metallic, dark denim and panelled denim and textured fabrics among them
Maria Grachvogel Spring/Summer 2013

Helmut Lang-inspired smokey ink printed dresses filled this ethereal collection, as well as cleverly placed sheer panels on trousers and shift dresses
Todd Lynn Spring/Summer 2013

Again, it seems the king of cool Helmut Lang's aesthetic has not been thrown out, with Todd Lynn channeling  skillfully creased dresses, wood and bark printed garments and eerie deconstructed tops throughout his collection
Dion Lee Spring/Summer 2013

Dion Lee is one of Australia's most talented exports, his designs gathering acclaim at the International Woolmark Prize he won this year and even more so at London Fashion Week. Tim Blanks, also known as the most famous fashion blogger, from Style.com, praised his collection, which is a feat in itself. I have always loved Dion Lee's designs, as they symbolise a futuristic elegance which most labels are trying to achieve nowadays, but Dion Lee has emerged at the forefront of this fashion movement. His Spring/Summer collection shows his masterful skills and mind for innovation with carefully placed cut outs and panelling in vibrant oranges, 3-dimensional details on dresses and blazers, particularly the lapelles and the intertwining of neutrals and muted neon colours. Dion Lee has no doubt broken through to the international market with this collection.

Rag & Bone Spring/Summer 2013

Rag & Bone have taken a break from their usual withheld chic aesthetic by combining Sports Luxe garments and a bold colour palette
Topshop Unique Spring/Summer 2013

There is one thing for sure, Topshop have outdone themselves and proved their reputation wrong by showing completely sheer dresses with carefully placed panels, a trend that no doubt will set of Spring/Summer
