First up was Koma, whose pale pink, yellow and gold peplums continued on with the mood of the week. And he showed wedges–another big trend, I’ve realized. According to The Daily, London Fashion Week’s newspaper, editors already hate kitten heels and are retreating back to wedges, which are “more comfortable.” I think the lower you are to the ground the easier it is to walk, but I’m also a girl who’s usually in flats.
But I digress. If Koma’s looks were totally on track with London’s current fashion feeling, then Holly Fulton’s where on track with her own feelings. The designer–whose gorgeous, graphic, art deco jewelry is as integral to her collection as the clothes–did go ‘70s, but it was still distinctly her. Fulton, who worked under Alber Elbaz at Lanvin, was sponsored by Swarovski this season, and theirs is a sensible partnership. Fulton’s flat rhinestone bib necklaces, which often match the pattern on her pastel, late 60s-style trousers and shift dresses, are certainly her best sellers, and with reason.
