Since the menswear shows kicked off way back in January, we’ve experienced some major highs (think John Galliano’s tiumphant couture show for Maison Margiela), some big surprises (Queen Elizabeth rocking up at Richard Quinn’s London presentation), and some serious lows (Kim Jones and Christopher Bailey’s last shows at Louis Vuitton and Burberry respectively). Despite these lows. throughout Fashion Month there was plenty to keep the Blake girl – who loves bold, adventurous clothing – happy. Here are some of the outfits she’ll be buying.
Maison Margiela pushed couture to its absolute limits this January, producing a collection that dazzled and delighted. Only a girl like Blake would be brave enough to done one of these holographic trench coats that punctuated the collection.
Marc Jacobs picked out the boldest, most angular cuts from an entire decade (no prizes for guessing which decade!) and sent them down the catwalk for AW18. The block colours, luxury fabrics, and huge hats made for a fabulous collection.
The dreamily romantic floral dresses with frilled shoulders and ribbon detail at Simone Rocha AW18 were to die for. It takes a special kind of woman to pull of this sort of fairytale look. Blake is one such woman.
Prada’s playful AW18 collection, which mined the Italian house’s history to create clothes for the future, was doubtlessly Blake’s Milan highlight. She particularly loved the mash-ups of (neon) colours and (nylon and tulle) textures.
Maria Grazia Chiuri’s particular brand of historically inspired female empowerment is a winning recipe for the Blake girl. The collection – which took inspiration from the revolutionary ’68 students’ movement – may well have inspired Blake to have a little wardrobe revolution of her own.
