Today saw the attendance of my first ever London Fashion Week show as a guest and not an intern, which is a very momentous occasion. Kitch & Honey invited me to Gyundel’s AW15 show and I couldn’t have been quicker to accept when I found out that Ella Eyre was performing live. The show was incredible and featured a lot of live music alongside the ‘Post Apocalyptic Survivor’ collection. I have to admit, the music fit perfectly and Ella’s voice went seamlessly with the innovative garments. The collection featured a lot of darker colours with burgundy being the main shade and a couple of beautiful prints working together. My favourites were a neoprene tailored jacket with the pattern segmented and a neoprene plain bomber – both stunning and items which I could see working well with my own wardrobe.
My outfit for the occasion did take a fair amount of experimenting and reaching out of my comfort zone. I chose to try and begin my transition into Spring/Summer by giving a little surge of pastel into my somewhat monochrome choices as of late. I had to add a little grey in the form of my split side, roll neck top from AX Paris. I initially thought it would be a looser fit so planned on wearing it alone but it layers up nicely and it will definitely be making a solo appearance later into Fashion Week in a different outfit. I quite like how it breaks up the black and white of the tshirt and jeans.
I picked this duster coat up from Boohoo for only £20 and despite it looking a little like a dressing gown, it was love at first sight. The silk-like fabric, the colour and the length worked in my favour to bring the outfit together. Although, the faux fur bag is definitely an addition worth mentioning too. Costing £15 instead of £32 from Topshop, I couldn’t resist. The mint green shade is so on trend for the coming season and fitted perfectly with this outfit as well as some other pieces which I’ve brought recently to fill my ever-growing wardrobe.
