Wood Wood Autumn Winter 2019 at London Fashion Week Mens
Wood Wood’s AW19 sporty, urban and down to earth collection was made for the lover of the great outdoors. The name of the collection “Come Down Easy,” referring to mountain descents as well as a state of mind, was influenced by skiwear, mountain life and adventures in nature.
The collection was presented in Shoreditch Studios, where the outdoor theme was well executed and the space was transformed into a cagey army campsite with oversized tents and woodland camouflage netting far and wide. The colour palette consisted of forest greens, khaki, autumnal gingers, yellows and browns, as well as navy, soft mint and pops of fluoro-greens and orange.
The collection saw the merging of contemporary streetstyle with wintery performance wear. The pieces included neoprene tops with contrast stitching, preppy corduroy shirts and organic t-shirts. Utilitarian and military references were seen throughout including combat trousers and head to toe camouflage looks, including a camo printed boiler suit with military detailing. Outerwear pieces included parkas perfect for the outdoors, a womenswear boxy duffle coat and luxurious tweeds for all. Hi-lo styling was also key with classic tweeds being paired with sporty lightweight hooded jackets. Knitwear included cozy Fair Isle knits, fluffy mohairs and chunky chenille knits. The womenswear silhouettes were equally sporty, yet chic. Notable pieces included camo print skirts and the easy to wear all-over alpine patch printed satin dresses. Think girls’ scouts.
The accessories included bucket hats, classic tartan scarfs, unisex leather boots topped with hiking laces and performance wear ski goggles. Barely-there makeup, fuss-free hairstyles and the occasional frizzy tousled curls also accompanied the outdoorsy ensembles.Overall Wood Wood delivered on a easy to wear contemporary collection: Slick, cozy and ideal for the outdoor adventurer at heart.

Black Happiness at Xuan Spring Summer 2019 during Haute Couture Fashion Week
XUAN was the designer that closed this Couture Fashion Week. She choose to present in an intimate moment her collection as an exhibition near to the “Arc de Triomphe”. This Vietnamian women, we can appreciate for her smile and her kindness, created her collection with a dreamy and poetic scenography. We had the time to appreciate the details of the designs exposed, walking in a blur illuminated of bright colors that gave the impression to be in a awaken dream.
A surprising collection due to the entirely black colored collection. A reference of Christobal BALENCIAGA or Pier Paolo PICCIOLI? Maybe. The designer explained us her vision of the meaning of the black symbolic in her work: for her, it is not synonym of negative but positive. Indeed, she uses the black as a visual artist: the black is the equal of all added colors. Colors of life, of joy, of emotions which are immersed by the cloth and by the body.
A collection mixing abstract of compositions with clear shapes. XUAN make dressed and tops asymmetric by the shapes and the textures with geometry. She is using curves of drape or waterfall of ruffles. A joy expressed if this liberty to wear the shape we want, unknown from any constraint by keeping the harmony in the proportions and the details handcraft inherited by Couture, like the wish to make a used effect on the ruffles of an asymmetric cotton dress. The “used” is used as ornament Couture. An interesting thinking about this designer that shared with us her vision of fashion and of the “black” who is a very sensitive subject in different cultures and also in the Fashion Industry.

Annakiki Autumn Winter 2019 during Milan Fashion Week
On February 20, 4:00 pm, ANNAKIKI presented her new collection A / W 2019. The place for this presentation was a very minimalist and clean look which of course kept the attention on the new collection. For this presentation, it was very well organized with a very strong vibe. This year ANNAKIKI chose different patterns like an animal and plaid pattern. These patterns such as zebra, tiger, leopard, and snake prints can be found quite frequently in coats and other apparel such as pants, skirts, and a body that
was really appreciated by guests.
As fitting, they opted for a slim-fit in a good combination with oversize-fit which offered a strong view for the collection. Over sized shoulders have become a must-have when it comes to coats, and jackets so you can find here so many items that you will love it. Of course, neon colors were part of the show, and this detail provided the collection a really young and fresh look.
“You are beautiful” and “embrace imperfection” are the sources of inspiration for ANNAKIKI. Sensuality and femininity are very well highlighted, especially in the last part of the collection with two very fine looks made with floral details. Thirty-nine looks, of which five were for men, but from my point of view can be used even by women who were framed perfectly in the theme chosen by our designer. However, the fur is a must-have in a woman’s wardrobe so ANNAKIKI shows us this detail in her collection, which of course manages to bring a sophisticated look for those outfits. A collection with a very strong theme, which of course has managed to attract the attention of spectators from many points of view: vivid colors, carefully chosen materials, and of course a very kinky mix & match.

Danshan Autumn Winter 2019
Danshan presented a refreshingly progressive take on menswear for their AW19 collection with water and gender fluidity being key prevalent themes. Set in the Sarabande Foundation venue, the enigmatic presentation featured models walking along a pool of shallow water slowly and gracefully dipping their shoes in and out to ethereal sounding music.
The color palette included classic blacks, blue toned grays, charcoals, browns and khakis, softened with pale dusty pinks. The overall aesthetic was that of a tender yet strong man. Pieces included fluid shirt shapes in luxe satin fabrics, drawstrings and reaching on the back of shirts and zip detailing. Silky shirts sported an androgynous flair with ladylike puff sleeves and tied sleeve cuffs. Soft fabrics highlighted an incorporation of sophistication, grace and a push against masculine stereotypes of hardness.
The collection also saw the merging of smart wear silhouettes with street wear detailing. There were long line bomber jacket trench coat hybrids, a hooded silk shirt with drawstrings along the neckline and a mix of cargo trousers and smarter tailored trousers in brushed corduroy. Other notable details included hi-shine PVC pieces and quilting on jackets resembling ripples of water. Another distinctive feature was that garments often had the addition of a train of long cascading fabric, an element that gave the collection a unique ethereal feel.
The models appeared solemn and sported waves of wet-look hair with dewy skin and darkened eye shadow under the eyes. Accessories included the occasional statement earring, smart leather shoes and silky scarfs tied at the waist.
Overall, Danshan’s AW19 collection was a clever exploration of modern masculinity and it tastefully highlighted the importance of breaking through societal norms and embracing tenderness and sensitivity as a man.

Chanel Joan Elkayam Autumn Winter 2019 at London Fashion Week
Chanel Joan Elkayam’s AW19 collection epitomized female empowerment, a lady’s strength, allure and diverse beauty. The designer drew inspiration from “an independent woman…a feminine, seductive leader who is at the same time opulent and chic.”
The collection presented in the elegant Cecil Sharp House had a dazzling start. The models walked gracefully along the catwalk to the beautiful sound of piano playing and live music from Benedict Cork. The heavenly Munroe Bergdorf, transgender model and activist, opened the show wearing a diamanté statement tee with the poignant words “I don’t follow, I lead.” The tee was teamed with glitzy wide leg sequin trousers. Show stopping. The powerful t-shirt was next worn by Kate Grant, a model with Down’s syndrome, further reinforcing the message that the true beauty lies within diversity. The diverse choice of models throughout the show also reflected the importance of inclusion.
The colour palette was unrestricted. Colours ranged from strong blacks, pops of blue and reds to light greys, ethereal whites, baby pinks and accents of metallic silvers and golds. Lingerie-like pieces were key including a notable white lace corset top paired with grey trousers, a black lace bodysuit paired with sheer organza drawstring trousers and a cropped corset top with lace up detailing. One word: sultry.
Blazers meant business with structured oversized blazer dresses and silky blazer trouser combinations. A particularly striking piece was a cropped houndstooth suit with oversized angled details along the shoulders and sleeve heads and an asymmetric panelled skirt to match exposing sultry knee-high lace stockings. Truly classy, sassy and bold.
Shimmer and shine also dominated the catwalk with sequin slit trousers shimmering across the catwalk. A glitzy purple and black cropped jacket with a long flowy train also stole the show. Ornate fabrics like jacquards and velvets were also prominent. Embellished necklines on jumpsuits and tops also added a luxe feel.
Transparency was key and elegant dresses were made out of glistening glitter mesh and oversized tulle exposing undergarments and corset panelling. A particularly memorable moment was when one of the glamorous models and her adorable 4-year-old counterpart glided along the catwalk in dreamy matching white hand embellished tulle dresses. Truly ethereal.
At times, retro silhouettes were on show including a white cropped halter neck top and skirt as well as a large houndstooth wool cropped top and matching skirt. The accessories included hats resembling retro flight attendant caps, oversized fedoras, mesh lace gloves, seductive fishnet tights and socks, and the occasional statement hoop earrings. Leather briefcases were also seen.
The hairstyles on show were eclectic with a general subtle nostalgic feel with slicked back buns, waves or cropped hair. Models sported a pop of colour along the eyes and dewy skin. Overall, the collection was incredibly elegant, eclectic and subtly political. Throw in some ethereal glitz and glamour and you have a collection perfect for a powerful woman who confidently says “I don’t follow, I lead.”
