Now that the AW15 fashion weeks are over, I’ve been having a proper think about whose FROW style really stood out for me. London is probably a bit predictable but I surprised myself with my other fashion week choices. After scrolling through all the coverage, these are the looks that stood out for me…
New York: Leigh Lezark
I’m always fascinated by the raven-haired DJ’s style and no one does downtown New York cool like The Misshapes creative. NYFW was strange for me this year, almost like Rachel Zoe had attacked every skinny blonde with an ill-fitting pair of ’70s flares and told them they looked good. When Olivia Palermo’s taken to wearing tan cords you know a nasty retro revival is on its way. Luckily, Leigh and her monochrome magnificence saved the FROW.
London: Alexa Chung
Told you it was predictable! Despite not being blonde Alexa is always one of my top fashion icons and never fails to disappoint at fashion week. She looked amazing at the London catwalk shows this year, though the floral dress she wore to the Topshop Unique show was maybe my favourite classic Alexa look.
Milan: Chiara Ferragni
I was expecting a lot more glamour from Milan Fashion Week but in truth a lot of front row looks were tired, much like the over-tanned complexions of some of the middle-aged socialites that propped up many of the shows. It’s easy to see why Milan is always my least favourite fashion weeks, if you can say such a thing when you work in fashion. The Blonde Salad blogger Chiara Ferragni had a mixed bag of outfits, but I did like some of her less gimmicky looks at MFW. I loved the Valentino Rockstud 1973 rainbow camera bag she wore to the Roberto Cavalli show and the Moschino bear print scarf she rocked at the DSquared2 show is a definite AW15 sellout piece. Truth be told, Leigh Lezark was actually the best dressed again but I didn’t want this to be a LL love affair. I’ll save that for a later post!
Paris: Leigh Lezark
Although there were a few individual looks I loved (Michelle Williams at Louis Vuitton, Poppy Delevingne at Chanel and Kim Kardashian’s platinum hair) no one could compete with Leigh Lezark. In a sea of ’70s-inspired tan, camel and flared denim, Paris looked way more chic with Leigh’s polished presence on the front rows. The mustard Chloe Drew bag was her arm candy of choice when attending the Chloe show, making it a certain contender for this year’s It Bag. Perfection!
