Fashion Scout have had some great coverage at London Fashion Week this season with great attendance for all of the shows and the Lulu Liu show was like every other, running late and heavily packed out with bloggers and press trying to get the perfect shot. Liu used the catwalk as a chance to express her trademark style of elegance eveningwear that is both wearable and accessible.
Opening with The XX-Angels blasting out the collection had a subdued and romantic feeling with the clean lines and scalloped edges. Inspired by clowns costumes the collection played around with different shapes but stayed true to simple cuts with layers of ruffles. The show opened with contrasting butterscotch and cream shades using both lambs leather and fur to add some texture.
As soon as some colour was injected into the collection, by way of pillar box red, the collection started to show more depth. A personal touch was added as detailed graphic prints were hand drawn by Lulu Liu herself onto sheer ruffled shirts. Tailored cigarette paints and polo necks gave pieces that were commercial but effective. All in all a great show, from the London based designer.
