Ingenious LFW Autumn/Winter 14-15 Review

It’s the time of year again when the capitals around the world become hot-spots of high-fashion glamour attracting impeccably styled crowd. At Ingenious we love the head rush that London Fashion week brings to creative magpies in every one of us. And, although it’s too early to talk about trends before the final curtain falls on Paris Fashion Week, we have rounded up our favourite looks.
Family Jewels
Designers have not held back their colours this season. It felt like the vault full of gems has been open spilling the succulence of rubies, ambers and sapphires all over the runaways. Start working gemstones into your wardrobe with Ingenious cat’s eye earrings.

Blue is the Colour
There has been a lot of beautiful colours on the catwalks this season, but the hue that caught our eye was the one reminiscent of clear blue sky. It was present in outerwear at Emilia Wickstead, dazzling lamé evening-wear at Matthew Williamson, and our favourite – airy almost elvian silk dresses at Holly Fulton. We would accessorise this heavenly colour with a sprinkle of rose gold and silver captured in a contemporary design, to make the look oh-so chic.

Heavy Embroidery
This AW designers have turned to the arts and crafts. It hasn’t only served as an inspiration (Amy and Maia of Mother of Pearl have been noticeably influenced by William Morris’s late work) but as an actual weapon of artisanship. Think pearl embellished dresses at Emilia Wickstead, bejewelled dresses at Erdem, and dazzling glory of Swarovski crystals woven into exquisite embroidery at Mary Katrantzou.

Moody Blooms
Every summer we see beautiful flowers blossom on the sheerest of silk and lace. This autumn blooms are sprouting on rather unexpected  surfaces: when David Bailey sent hand painted sheerling coat down Burberry runaway he has instantly given floral print a new meaning. Darker more sensual and mystical botanic have been spotted at John Rocha, Maria Grachvogel and Michael van der Ham. We can’t wait to wrap ourselves in one of Bailey’s creations. In the meantime we’ll be tapping into the trend by wearing some of our own floral designs.
