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.
