Spring Summer 2015 Favourite Collections | Part 1

With Fashion Month over I took some time to go through pretty much all the SS15 collections in order to pick my favourite ones. During Fashion Month it's always so hectic and so much to take in that it's really nice to look at them again in detail. So I chose 26 collections which I liked the most, for all kinds of different reasons which I will show you in two posts. So here's the first 13 in alphabetical order.

A very wearable, sporty yet sexy, collection made of elaborate materials and topped off with innovative sneaker-inspired bags. The pieces I liked the most were the amazing crop tops (obviously) and the figure hugging dresses.

The second collection designed by Wang - he did manage to impress me this season - that made my list. Whereas his own brand collection was colourful, sporty and fun, Balenciaga was sparkly, sexy and glamorous. I especially loved the 'off the shoulder' looks.

I loved everything about Balmain - the colour scheme, the thin straps, the cut out detailing, the flared trousers, the make-up, those chockers - everything.

I have to admit this wasn't my favourite Burberry Prorsum collection to date, and you know how enthusiastic I usually am. Don't get me wrong, I still think it was genius and the craftmanship was incredible as always, it's just that it wasn't my really my personal taste. I did love the elaborately draped tulle dresses though and I feel like I will come to like it more and more with time, that's why I had to include it on my list. And the beauty look with the tucked in hair is and the faded red lips was on point.

Simplicity with a twist, just what I love the most. I absolutely adored the shapes, the layering and of course the accessories.

I did not like the clothes a lot, neither was I a big fan of the protest finale, but the shoes and accessories were just too good to not appear here. THE SHOES. Yes. It already makes me sad that I won't be able to afford those. 

With this collection it was love at first sight for me and I'd pretty much wear every single look head to toe. This is what dreams are made of.

The silhouettes, that beautiful eye make up and the incredible boots and bags are what made me add this collection to the list.

Ok so these are definitely the shoes of the season for me, I am so in love with them. The chunkyness was beyond perfect for this sleek, clean and beautifully layered collection. Wearable, but far from boring - what's not to love.

Not exactly my style, but looking at the collection, I felt myself transported back to Ibiza and could practically feel the summer again and a collection that can trigger emotions like that has to be good. My favourite look was the orange bell sleeve top and short coord. 

I loved Erdem because to me the clothes looked like something the heroine in a dark, mysterious fairytale would wear. Dreamy but sexy - feminine but powerful. The perfect mixture. 

The eye make up, similar to the Dior one, was definitely my favourite part about the look, closely followed by the adorable bags. A very coherent collection with loads of great outfits.

Whenever a collection makes the models look like beautiful female warriors I am pretty much sold. Add a little bit of a medieval vibe, the sexiest boots known to mankind paired with beautifully draped girly dresses and a mixture of lace and leather and you get a perfect collection like this one. Definitely one of my top 5 this season.

Stay tuned for Part 2 coming soon. Images via style.com - collages created by me.

Topshop Unique is undoubtedly always my favourite show to attend during LFW – not only because of the great collections, but also the amazing venues, A-List attendees, supermodels and great food. It’s more than just a fashion show, it’s an incomparable event.  
The collection was quirky and girly, yet rounded off with a sporty edge, which made it fun and wearable.  Bulky sweaters reminiscent of college sweaters worn on top of flimsy skirts and tiny ruffle shorts, super high-waist pants Sandy Olsson would love and heaps of feminine, ruffled dresses in between. It had a retro American feel to it, which I loved.
Obviously I took a ridiculous amount of pictures, so brace yourselves - It will be worth it though.

London Fashion Week SS15 | Street Styles

Foto 17.09.14 14 50 19
Street Style has become a crucial part of Fashion month and is almost as defining for future trends as the fashion shows itself. The number of Street Style photographers running from show to show in order to get the best shot is increasing each season and so is the number of people dressing up in order to get their picture taken, which quite often turns out to be a bit ridiculous. Nevertheless there are always tons of great looks and the variety of styles is what makes London Fashion Week so interesting. Of course I couldn't resist taking some pictures of looks and people that caught my eye. Which one is your favourite?
