Today in Fashion Week:September 16th

Hello childrens! If everything goes smoothly, this post will be on time today! Fingers crossed. Also, today we are officially halfway through London Fashion Week! Time flies when fashion week is only five days.

Adidas by Stella McCartney

What do you get when you mix a world class designer with a ubiquitous line of athletic apparel? You would hope something fun, inexpensive, and fabulous, but this season that's not the case. If I saw these pieces next to regular Adidas clothes I probably wouldn't be able to tell them apart.

Aquascutum began gauzy and light, and gradually transitioned into darker and heavier, with little flashes of Prada last season. I can see them going far if they play their cards right.

Eley Kishimoto

Eley Kishimoto is always girly, quirky, edgy and wonderful. This season was no exception, and the colors popped like a crayola box.

Christopher Kane

If I were at Christopher Kane's show, I probably would have written something like "interesting...different..." in my notes. He's got skill, no question about it, but his attempts to be edgy resulted in costume-like fur trim and the kind of cheetah print you'd find on pajamas at Target.

Louise Goldin

Lousie Golden did her usual intricate folds and added sheer rolled-sleeves under almost everything.


Giles Deacon went a little bit futuristic this time around, with weird virtual reality helmets and pacmen on dresses. Two things I hope to unsee:the quilted silver fabric (it looks like something Project Runway contestants would be forced to use in order to be "innovative.") the camouflage (unacceptable under any circumstances.)

Alright, that about does it for today, but come back tomorrow for Richard Nicoll, House of Holland, and more!
