My first show of LFW was Maria Grachvogel, the Lancaster Ballroom at The Savoy being the fitting location for the luxurious collection she presented.
As well as the beautifully draped dresses in silk crepe and signature drapnig, a relaxed tailored theme ran through the show and my eye was particularly drawn to the high waisted trousers cut in cashmere and wool and the masculine draped shirts with balloon sleeves, both in lace and silk.
The inspiration from the Brothers Grimm was evident in the styling of the models with their hair styled in spiked top knots with strong eyebrows and black lipstick, giving the show a darker edge. Meanwhile prints referenced bones and enchanted forests!

I must mention the jewellery which was created in collaboration with Erickson Beamon. Loved the feather cuffs in particular which complemented the collection perfectly but could easily be statement pieces their own right.

Yasmin Le Bon was just one of the celebrities in attendance, looking stunning and surrounded by papparazzi the day before her high profile return to the catwalk for the Issa show.
