The boy done good


Due to my looming MA deadline I'm enjoying an enforced absence from London Fashion Week. Whilst all around me are dashing towards the Embankment and Somerset House, I'm enjoying a quiet nip in or two to the London College of Fashion library.

There is one show I should have fought for, that of my favourite fellow countryman Julian Macdonald. Ah the boy done good...he restrained his flamboyance, which I love, to the aim of his cut and created a collection of scuba inspired modern pieces for a perfect marriage of sportswear and glamour.

  4. I would wear the first one in a heartbeat, but not sure about the second one. I'd say though that it's way more interesting to look at than a lot of "safe" garb we've seen on the runway lately...

  12. The first dress has almost scary "sleeves"--I initially thought that the model's upper arms were that small!!
