LFW Diary: Day 1 – Dinosaur Jumper, Bora Aksu & A Nokia Skirt

LFW Diary: Day 1 – Dinosaur Jumper, Bora Aksu & A Nokia Skirt

There is a calm about this London Fashion Week, maybe it is because it is like my tenth or eleventh season, I really have lost count, or maybe it is just with the rain I know there is less pressure on my outfits because lets face it I am going to spend the whole five days soaked.

Today, I most certainly got soaked, it poured all day, so no proper outfit picture, just a crappy one taken on my mobile inside The Apartment, but I just had to share as I love this stripy dinosaur jumper from ASOS. I promise that I will share this beauty in another outfit post soon.

LFW SS14: Fyodor Golan ‘Electric Children’

LFW-SS14-Fyodor-Golan-18Since winning Fashion Fringe in 2011, Fyodor Golan helmed by duo Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman, has become one of the runway shows that I can’t miss. There is something so fresh about these designers that always makes me takes notice, get excited about fashion, and basically covet every single piece.

In previous seasons the duo has produced a drama filled collection bordering more on the side of couture than ready-to-wear, for spring/summer 2014 it seems that Fyodor Golan has looked more to the street with a bright and wearable collection filled with pieces inspired by “exploring the idea of modern dressing through an active lifestyle”.

Entitled the ‘Electric Children’, the collection was a colour explosion of bright yellow and pink, which contrasted nicely against soft candy-like pastel hues of mint green, baby blue and nude. The girlie sleek feminine lines of the pencil skirts, and pleated dresses, were teamed with boxy sweatshirts with FG emblazoned on them, super cropped bombers and cool Smiley adorned hemlines and bandeaus for a very 90’s feel.

There will be some that might have missed the drama, for me I loved the progression of the duo, and there was still an element of glamour mixed into the collection with the addition of feathers, sparkly black jackets, and metallic sequinned jumpsuits. For me it was the more wearable pieces that will certainly elevate the label – especially those sweatshirts – I am sure they will be high on most people’s wish-list!

As well as loving the sports luxe feel this will also go down as one of my favourite soundtracks – the playlist filled with Crystal Castles tracks and finishing with David Bowie’s Hero was perfection.

Are you a fan of Fyodor Golan?

LFW AW13: Fyodor Golan – Belle De Jour

AW13-fyodor-golan-11

Since winning Fashion Fringe in 2011, design duo Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman have gone from being one of the labels to watch to a must see show on the London Fashion Week schedule.

Set in the luxurious and decadent setting of The Savoy ballroom with its crystal chandeliers, the format was a circular catwalk that made it feel more like an intimate salon show, which was perfect to showcase the extravagant AW13 ready-to-wear collection.

The collection inspired by Luis Bunuel’s 1967 film, Belle De Jour, explored the coming of age story of an adolescent turning into a woman, and was a tale of two halves, mixing couture-like elements with the eveningwear pieces with structured bodices, which fingers crossed are destined for the red carpet, and the more wearable tailored dresses featuring gentle ruffles around the neckline, and block coloured knitwear separates.

My personal highlights included the floor-length vibrant orange red carpet ready gown, the embossed iconic smiley faces on pencil skirts, dresses and biker jackets, and the sequin cocoon dress styled with a blue printed circular mask.

LFW SS13: Fyodor Golan – The Holy Mountain

Fashion Fringe is developing an impressive alumni, Corrie Nielsen provides the couture, Erdem is the floral king, and Jena.Theo are the masters of cool and wearable, and I think it is safe to say that Fyodor Golan has settled in perfectly, and each season the duo get better and better.

For spring/summer 2013, the design duo were inspired by the Blue Tattoo, a true story about a Victorian girl travelling through the desert when her and her family are attacked by Native Americans, and ‘The Holy Mountain’ by Alejandro Jodorowsky, leading to a vibrant collection filled with Aztec and Mayan elements, broken porcelain china prints, and a rich colour palette of Royal blues, dessert hues, and a pop of pink.

What stood out the most about this collection, other than the gorgeous billowing silhouettes and the theatrical vibe, had to be wearability of the designs. This was a collection with maturity, it showcased the extraordinary talent of Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman perfectly, and really put their label on the global fashion stage. I know that they are already stocked in Harvey Nichols and boutiques around the world but this feminine collection with a luxe edge will be very much in demand next season.

There were lots of highlights, but I adored everything that came in the gorgeous deep blue shade, from body-con dresses with sheer arms to peplum cocktail styles featuring lattice skirts, to skinny trousers adorned with Swarovski beaded, and then there were gowns that swept the floor – each was simply stunning.

Add the sculptural headwear created by milliner Zara Gorman and the facial jewellery designed by Yunus and Eliza and this was one show that I won’t forget in a while, I loved each look, and I hope big named stylists take note as these boys deserve to get their designs on the red carpet!!!
