Therefore, a shift towards sustainable materials to lessen the environmental cost of plastic use seems to be a primary agenda for many global companies and retailers. This will be seen more and more throughout retail stores alike. This supports a shift towards a more sustainable lifestyle of valuing fewer, higher quality products with a higher pricing but lower total resource use thus creating a new kind of brand identity for retailers.
Some highlights from Day 3 of London Fashion Week: For the first time in more than a decade, the label, now headed by designer Sarah Burton, moved its womenswear display from its usual home in Paris to London Fashion Week. Then came sharply tailored cream-and-black tuxedo jackets, and black feather skirts layered over flared trousers.
That was followed by a flurry of barely-there lingerie and boudoir-inspired dresses: Frilly numbers with daring cutouts at the chest, slips with sheer-tiered skirts, corsets worn over delicate pieces. Luxurious fur-trimmed capes completed the look, and the last outfit — a feather concoction of a gown — was pure glamor.
The show Sunday had no single theme, leaning more toward a greatest hits collection. There were slouchy dresses and loose fitting jackets that gave their models an androgynous, Charlie Chaplin look.
Other jackets looked like comfortable duvets. To top it off there were magnificent evening gowns, including one showstopper with a silver metallic glint at the top and a flouncy billowing look at the bottom. It was another triumph for Westwood, who emerged with her models to loud applause.
Tudor-style frills and ruffs - as well as a dark, sparkly coat that shone like a moonless night - added a much-needed element of mystery.
New designer Johnny Coca appeared to be banking on his customers having some powerful biceps. Although some Mulberry bags were small and minimal, with an unfinished look unlikely to get much attention beyond the fashion set, others were rectangular or severe-looking, with large chunky chains that might have seen better use as bicycle locks.
These bags "are for women who want to make a statement," she said. Recommended Whatever It Takes Ann Coulter Designer Alice Temperley set the stage with a dark venue dominated by dramatic wooden ship masts draped with twinkly lights.
Models wore clothes that perfectly matched the marine theme, though sometimes a tad too literally — some of the ensembles featured pussy bows, pantaloons and military jackets. But sheer dresses embroidered densely with tattoo motifs— roses, hearts and birds— worked well and looked refined despite the source material, while cool studded rocker boots kept things modern.
Topshop Unique delivered all the hallmarks of its youthful, cool girl look. But the main lesson for shoppers may be this: Unlike the ubiquitous ankle boot, these are pointy, go up to the calves and come in eye-catching materials and colors like yellow velvet, bronze or white leather.
Combined with grungy big hair and bright pink lipstick, the models look ready for a hell-raising night out on the town. So a mustard outfit in fluid fabrics is worn layered with an oversized granny jumper, and a leopard print top and sheer fuchsia lace skirt get covered up by a slouchy big coat.
The evening wear looked particularly flattering and included a black velvet wide-leg trouser ensemble and floaty, slip-like black gowns with a thigh-high slit and matching velvet collar.Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood.
