Wrap Up: David Jones AW15

Sydneys high heeled and fashionably fierce descended on Level 7 of David Jones Sydney flagship last Wednesday for the launch of the retailer’s Autumn Winter 2015 Collection. The venue was transformed into a gritty Surry Hills meets New York underground space, complete with paved floor, bill posters and hipster marching drummers.

Jessica Gomes opened the 40 minute, 35 designers show with an all white Carla Zampatti that confirmed suspicions as to whether the 70s are coming back. Gomes wore a long white feather coat teamed with wide-legged pants and a white chiffon top that was luxurious. Her entrance was followed by Lover, Camilla, Zimmerman Bec + Bridge, Bassike, Camilla + Marc and others.

The message was clear this show: white is back this winter.

The show then moved into bold accessories by Mimco, and incredible embellished animal prints by Camilla, next was Jodi Meare’s sportswear label, The Upside which presented on trend polka dot bralets and leggings, running shorts and cute cropped sweaters.

Rebecca Vallance was one of my favourites with all black and leather looks with her strong giving it a sexy yet edgy style. A black leather dress over leather leggings, and long-line black sleeveless coat . Accessorised with her signature wide-brimmed hat and leather gloves, gave an all black sophisticated, raw and edgy look.

The masculine trend was further confirmed by Bassike, who showed oversized and slouchy fits in light and neutral tones such as whites, ivory and cream. Showcasing drawstring pants, vests and blazers which gave a relaxed, masculine style to Winter trends.

Riffing on the 70’s, Bianca Spender’s collection took a complete 180 turn away from the neutral/monochromatics trend that dominated both the David Jones show and the past few seasons. Daringly she showed Bowie-esque lurex jackets and cropped pants in tones of electric blue, copper and cherry.

Zimmerman was a knock out, with lots of gold, flounce, lace and lurex- a collection not for the minimalists, being a crowd favourite.

Michael Lo Sordo made a dramatic entrance, with a cherry silk maxi dress worn by Montana Cox stole the show. The outfit looked fresh on the short-haired beauty, and the look was quickly making its way around social media.

In honour of the legendary designers 50 years in the business, the show’s finale was dedicated to Carla Zampatti ending with a bang in uptown 70’s luxe ensembles.

#FreeTheNipple Christopher Kane London Runway

#FreeTheNipple combines with Christopher Kane’s mature and sophisticated fashion pieces baring all on the London 2015 Spring Runway.

Could your beaming headlights be next season’s most stylish accessories? It certainly looks that way. From what we’ve seen at on the runway – bras and pasties are out, nipples are in.

At London Fashion Week’s Spring 2015 shows, models were bearing their breasts left, right and centre. Tom Ford recently presented sequinned nipple pasties on the runway, but Burberry, Erdem and Christopher Kane took the look one step further this week – bra-less is the new trend, it seems.

This season, Christopher Kane’s show was about more than showcasing his ensembles. As a former Saint Martins student of the late Professor Louise Wilson, his collection was influenced by her presence in his life, and her passing. Revisiting ropes a detail he was drawn to in his student collections while studying beneath her the jackets that made their way down the catwalk were formed of nautical zigzag lines, and his silky grey slip dresses brought in at the waist by rope belts.

But don’t be fooled. Grown-up, yes, but not sombre or predictable. As ever, the designer brought newness to the catwalk, from tulle peeping underneath hems to sheer panels to bring the #freethenipple to life and begin a trend that also sparks controversy.
Here is a look at his risky, skin shedding designs from the runway
