J JS Lee catwalk show report | LFW A/W 2014
Korean-born Newgen designer Jackie JS Lee kicked off London Fashion Week with a collection inspired by the great English countryside. With focuses on comfort and warmth, classic heritage fabrications of wool and brushed tartan mohair were used throughout. Oversized roll necks with square tailoring illustrated Lee’s signature aesthetic – minimalist, modern and incredibly wearable.
In a military-inspired, British palette of grey, white and navy, the collection brings attention to the dire state of our beloved countryside. Colour blocking has made a comeback – this time in the form of knits and loafers where romantic pops of royal blue and forest green represent hope in such uncertain times. Silhouettes drew from the 20s and 50s through A-line and mermaid skirts worn at a modest knee-length. The head-to-toe monochromatic looks were a definite highlight and we loved the slit detailing of the trousers.
Following her spring/summer 2013 collection of pinks and underwater hues, it’s no surprise to find J JS Lee right on trend once again. Autumn/winter draws from a more traditional source by celebrating British elegance through texture and colour.

Nasir Mazhar catwalk show report | LFW A/W 2014
Nasir Mazhar is best recognised for his caps and headwear which have been featured at the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony and on Lady Gaga. Mazhar showcased his street-wear label for the first time last season with a 90s-chav look that stole the headlines, making his autumn/winter showcase one of the most anticipated shows of the week. 
In just two seasons, Nasir Mazhar has cemented his place at Somerset House and has developed into a London Fashion Week staple.  Crowds of people without tickets stood bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the afternoon downpour in hopes of catching a glimpse of the designer’s showcase.  They weren’t allowed in, but were able to watch the show on a big screen for their worries.
The look for autumn/winter is Mazhar’s signature 90s kid covered in labels and gel with penciled eyebrows and dark lips, like that of a “chonga.”  Reinterpreted basketball tracksuits with an extra sheen and fur detailing in blacks, golds and deep reds are accented by metallic light pinks and blues.  With housed trousers paired with boxers and mid-drifts, you’ve got to be bold and a bit of a badass to wear these looks.  In a nutshell, Nasir Mazhar’s aesthetic is TLC’s crazy-sexy-cool-meets-raver with a sprinkle of NASCAR.  A real homage to old school aesthetics.

Diane von Furstenberg collaborates with Andy Warhol in 40th anniversary of the wrap dress

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Diane von Furstenberg’s most illustrious design: the iconic wrap dress. The dress’ legacy and classic shape has proven a staple through its evolving longevity, and has paved the career of one of the fashion industry’s most prominent figures.

To celebrate this, Diane von Furstenberg has teamed up with The Warhol Foundation to bring us PopWrap – a capsule collection of frocks, tees and accessories combining Andy Warhol’s most iconic motifs with some of the designer’s own. DVF’s original chain links and twigs are effortlessly stamped with Warhol’s colourful dollar signs and hibiscus prints, conceptually blurring the line between fashion and art. PopWrap‘s whimsical campaign was created by illustrator and photographer Alia Penner. In her signature mixed media aesthetic, Penner developed a stop-motion dream overflowing with all things 60s.

Some things are meant to go together: peanut butter and jelly, strawberries and chocolate, and Diane and Andy. The collaboration is perfectly fun and playful, but it’s no surprise these two mesh so well. After all, they’re similarly inspired by the glamorous free spirit. The duo were good friends back in the factory days and Warhol’s portrait of Furstenberg continues to be one of his most recognised works.

Accompanying the 40th anniversary and PopWrap is Journey of a Dress, an artistic retrospective of 200 dresses that represent the history of the wrap design. The exhibition also features portraits of Furstenberg by Warhol, Leibovitz and other contemporary designers. In true Warholian fashion, opening night was dripping with superstars. The exhibit is free and open to the public through March in the gallery of the Wilshire May Department Building, 6067 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA.

This is no doubt a big year for Diane von Furstenberg and she shows no signs of slowing down.  Her autumn/winter 2014 collection, Bohemian Wrapsody, was shown at NYFW, the punny title paying homage to her respected history. Bear with us as we sign off with a cringe-worthy pun of our own…that’s a wrap!
