My name is Natacha, I’m French but have lived in New York for a year. I am both a style writer and a fashion blogger and this week, I’m reporting on London Fashion Week for you dear Zoe Reporters! Every day I’ll be bringing you the latest from LFW—fashion, sights and the likes from across the pond.
First up: Sass&Bide. The new collection is called Wintergate, with inspiration stemming from “ a curiosity about man-made objects. We wanted to study the internal mechanics of them.”
Besides this rather technical inspiration, this line is extremely feminine. The cuts are structured and sophisticated. The sass and bide woman is mysterious, fierce and modern. The pieces of the collection are primarily black and white, balanced with small touches of yellow, that’s imposing itself as next winter’s bright color.
Next, I head to London’s film museum to catch the Antipodium show.
At Antipodium, the models, colors and fabrics were inspired by 90s pop culture: with regards to the colors, iridescent tones are paired with brighter colors like red and yellow. As for the fabrics, vinyl textures and velvets are honored. The look is young, sexy, chic, and modern.
My day ends on Oxford Street and more specifically at Topshop where the designer J.W Anderson is launching his special Topshop line.
Finally, if you’re ever in passing on the bustling streets surrounding Oxford Street, be sure to make a short Liberty stop. It’s a concept store with a typically English decor and a rather avant-garde selection…
Street style moments at Covenant Garden and Somerset House—one of the best parts of any fashion week!
See you tomorrow for the rest of my London adventures,
Bisous! x Natacha
