Red and blue? What a to-do.

I've really enjoyed leisurely watching the shows streaming live from London Fashion Week. My favourite so far has to be Charles Anastase. (Shown above and below.) The colours were an inspired mix of mustard, turquoise, salmon, burnt orange and blood red.

The loosely layered coats made me think of what an actress in 1930s Berlin might throw on to escape out of the stage door after an evening's performance. And the pyjama suit shapes and ruffled hats reminded me of something Otti Berger might have worn to class at the Bauhaus.

(Otti Berger, from an exhibition at the Bauhaus Archiv, earlier this year.)

  4. oo, thanks for the streaming link, i will check that out now. looking forward to more posts on LFW. x

  5. I love that powder blue dress, especially the cut and length of it, but towering heels are definitely a must for that hem! Blood red is a colour I would not have thought to put with the blue, but it's heavenly.
