Faves of MBFWA

By Johnny

     From ice cream shades to vibrant hues I absolutely loved the use of color in this collection, which showcased abstract shapes, block color and candy stripes. We also saw metallic details and sequins, which made for a glamorous edge.

    With clean silhouettes and a heavy focus upon metallics and soft, luxe leather we saw a much more masculine vibe from this collection. Sports luxe was a strong theme (think structured leather crops, brogues and tennis style dresses), but my favorite part of the collection has to be the clean cut metallic coats that hung over the shoulders of the models.

    From waist cinching belts, feathers and heavy embellishment this collection showcased pretty, feminine and glamorous pieces, from sheer gowns to brightly colored mini dresses and playsuits. Not only this, but the collection showed us that we can in fact be ‘matchy matchy’ from head to toe and it will look good (something I’ve always been a bit dubious about).

All White Everything

White is always an amazing colour to have in your Spring/Summer wardrobe. Its crisp, bright, goes with everything and adds that little bit of class. But this season a new type of white has appeared; Head to Toe.

I have had my eye on a head to toe all white ensemble for a very long to time. Am I gutsy enough to actually go ahead and buy one? As of yet, no. But I’ve come to realise that this trend is not actually as scary as it looks, which is why I think I might be braving it this Summer. There are so many different ways to wear this trend that no-one has an excuse to shy away! Still not inspired? Read on to see how you can wear it this summer.

WHITE ON WHITE

Feeling brave? Team white with even more white: Image

KEEPING IT NEUTRAL

Still not feeling brave enough? Try teaming an all white outfit with some off white shades like cream or go darker with tan accessories to contrast against the striking white head to toe look.

COLOUR POP

Be very careful with this one, you want to uphold the class of the all white look, so don’t go too crazy with bright colours. You could accent the white with a gorgeous teal colour in the form of a clutch bag, a chunky jewelled necklace or even some strappy sandals.

MAKE IT MONOCHROME

Black and white together will always be a perfect match so if you aren’t feeling quite so brave you can always add black accents to the outfit. I recommend taking inspiration from Moschino’s SS13 collection- the perfect amount of black that maintains that all white look with an added twist.
