Vivienne WestwoodRed Label-Spring/Summer 14’

Vivienne Westwood’s shows are not just collections, they’re messages. The outspoken and impossibly creative designer’s spring/summer 2014 Red Label was full of character and lifeless all at the same time. Dramatic wounds for make-up and zombie-esc hair truly showed off Westwood’s unique way of bringing fashion and a statement together.

Delicate floral dresses resembling art work graced the catwalks. The designer played with different lengths, some flowing, while others were short and fitted. Other looks had a modern edge, one having ‘Climate’ spread across a t-shirt, layered with a cream corset and matching skirt.

The skirt was popular in Westwood’s designs, knee-length creations paired with blouses. Splashes of colour and killer heels made them pop. Contrasting, black pieces played to Westwood’s unpredictable streak. A striking black jumpsuit with a plunging cleavage oozed dark glamour.

Accessories wise, belts were key- cinched waists offering demure femininity. Bags varied, from satchels to large beach styles.

Vivienne Westwood’s aesthetic is always one of a kind- formulas are boring.

Style Icon- Coco Rocha

She’s the style crush of fashionistas, models and celebrities. Oh, AND she’s a supermodel. Yep, it’s Coco Rocha.

Coco’s style is personal; she sticks to what she loves and its signature. Coco always looks put together and polished but she has a killer rock n’ roll edge, always adding a touch of black to her looks.

‘The Face’ mentor isn’t afraid of patterns and colour either, having sported bright hues and intricate designs. However, Coco stays true to her classic taste by not over-accessorising.

 I’m betting her favourite style of shoe is a black leather boot as she’s usually photographed wearing a pair, which toughens up whatever she’s wearing. Coco loves a statement piece, whether it’s a hat, fur coat or embellished jacket.

Her shades give her looks that ‘too cool’ vibe and make-up wise, a smoky eye or red lip (sometimes both) are a must.

Recently Coco gave her locks the chop, looking more edgy and fresh than ever.

‘Every Colour Illuminates’

Nothing embodies summer like bright colours, except maybe sunshine. Designer’s didn’t hold back as they showcased, bold and bright pieces from head-to-toe. Let’s get colourful shall we?

Emilia Wickstead went soft and feminine with cropped elbow length tops and long skirts; sticking to a pretty pinks and yellow. Playing with shape, a key item was a striped flowing duo-tone creation, cropped at the front. The designer kept accessories bare except for the odd bold box-style handbag and classic pointed heels.

Going for brighter is better, Prada showed of imaginative designs. Crossing over several trends, embellished coats and dresses donned rainbow patterns and artistic faces. Colour blocking and (and clashing) was key: red, blue and yellow being dominant. Below-the-knee sport socks and chunky bracelets gave the looks an edge.

Jeremy Scott brightened up the runway with sixties inspired mini dresses, multi-coloured streaks running vertically. Matching boots and bouffant style hair completed the looks. Paul Smith stuck to one colour with a selection of low cleavage suits while Chanel went all out with frilled and patterned long dresses.
