The photos and coverage of London Fashion Week are always so enjoyable. It's the quirky cousin to serious New York, glamorous Milan, and classic Paris. There are always bold color choices, contrasting textures, and wild statement pieces to admire and a sense of genuine individuality in the street style looks.
This year, I was especially inspired by Burberry's presence which celebrated the industry's craftsmen and was inspired by Orlando by Virginia Woolf. The look was quirky aristocrat and was made very interesting by the fact that nearly all of the outfits I coveted were worn by men.
Elsewhere and everywhere, there were Victorian vibes and odes to the intellgentsia. The girl is obsessed with the Bronte sisters and figures Jane Eyre to be their greatest feminist icon. She brings punk spirit to classical, buttoned-up femininity.
My London street style picks would be in a similar vein, pairing a minimalist white oxford with a navy velvet dress from Prada and matching lace-up Victorian boots. For a pop of London eccentricity, I'd carry the color-blocked Chloe Drew bag.
For a second look, I'd take a casual route paying homage to classic British knitwear in an Adam Lippes sweater with tie-dye Stella McCartney jeans, a neutral Chloe Drew bag, and a pair of Gucci shoes that remind me of the Sloanes of the 1980s.
