Sass & Bide -

SILK ROUTE The Australian duo, Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton, seemed to start their design journey at London's Portobello Road and then on to the Far East and back, gathering inspiration along the way. Billowing harem pants in bold stripes and ethnic prints suggested that Arabia was one of their stops. Symmetrical tops that echoed the geometric patterns of these ...

Margaret Howell -

EASY CLASSICS Established in the 1970s, the foundation of Margaret Howell’s label has been well-made menswear-inspired pieces for women. The simple separates in her collection for S/S 10 were no departure.

Bora Aksu -

ROC 'N ROCO JOCK Bora Aksu's influences for his spring collection could be summed up by the shoes: two parts pastel-coated Rococo to one part tomboy “scrimmage chic” — with a shot of plasticized rock 'n roll futurism to tie it all together.

Matthew Ames -

A RETURN TO FORM A good deal of buzz surrounded Matthew Ames this week, and with his ethereal collection that placed substance over style, the young award-winning designer quietly impressed. There was barely a hint of superfluous decoration to be found in his clean silhouettes of Ellsworth Kelly-inspired color-blocked organza, cotton and linen.  The bare canvas allowed the designer to show ...

Headonism -

HAT TRICK London Fashion Week kicked off in dramatic style today with Headonism, a showcase of emerging British milliners curated by mad hatter Stephen Jones.  Styles ranged from the functional, to the artfully beautiful, to the downright absurd.  Soren Bach invented a rabbit fur Princess Leia-style earmuff style to cure the winter blues.  A seemingly normal veiled pillbox hat was paired ...
