Combination of fashion and social engagement with Vivienne Westwood

Queen of Fashion Week Made in the UK, Vivienne Westwood, is the living proof that fashion can also be politically and socially committed: the theme of its parade was climate change and the disastrous effects that this can have on the planet and humanity . The main elements of his collection are asymmetries, overlapping of material, tartan patterns, but also many solid colors – the blacks and dark grays until the bright fuchsia, green and red.

Good Vs Bad Guys from Topshop Unique

This collection has dressed not one but two women: the good girl and her alter ego wilder and more, there is no doubt, it is the latter to win.
As usual, Topshop gave an excellent performance in modern way of the typical British style which is a mixture of classic, punk shades, eighties, grunge. All of which are still in the style of dress of the English fashion-loving youth (and not). Element that has been added this year, the influence of a style made ​​in America it brings the Kardashian sisters.

Back to the past with Charlotte Olympia

For the first time at London Fashion Week, Charlotte Olympia looks to the future of its brand with a collection inspired by the past. The show, entitled “The girl who fell to heart,” has accompanied the onlookers on a journey through time and space with a return to Hollywood divas of the ’40s thanks to cruissard with crystals, animal prints, clutch plexliglass. The catwalk clothes are sometimes stretch sheath dresses, other times very elegant and long, characterized by stunning necklines. What unites them? The color black, a master key that never goes out of style.
