London Fall 2015 Shows And Tom Ford Showing In LA
The London and Milan fall 2015 shows have already come to a close and we are now in the middle of the Paris fall 2015 shows. As you know I like to do a recap of all the shows every season and today it’s London’s turn. But before I get into the London shows, I wanted to mention that this season Tom Ford, who normally shows his collection in London, decided to show his collection in Los Angeles. His main reason to change venues was that the Oscars fell at exactly the same time as London shows and he had to be in LA to dress celebrities for the Oscars, so why not change it up a bit. I thought it was nice to see Los Angeles getting in on the fashion week action. I have included my picks from his show on my London recap.
As far as the rest of the London shows, I have to say I was a bit disappointed and found myself struggling to find any great jackets or outerwear ideas to share with you. A lot of the trends were similar to New York’s shows with 70’s being on top of the list. Normally I like the 70’s look if it is modernized to some level but I struggle with it when it is too hippy looking. I like taking some elements like fringe or suede but you have to update the look to make it modern and relevant for now.
The main trends that I picked up on for outerwear were:
- The 70’s
- Metallic and shimmery fabrics
- All types of Fur
- Belted and wrapped
A few other elements that I pick up on that were not necessarily jacket related were lots of flare pants, mismatched patterns worn together or as the fashion world calls it “mix and clash” which is not one of my favorite looks, wall paper prints, and denim.
Below you can see what I have picked as my favorite looks, Let me know in the comments which ones do you like – it is always so great to hear from you all?
