5 Gamechangers from London Fashion Week
Hot on the heels of New York Fashion Week, London took up the baton and showcased some truly remarkable bags. We’re talking batshit crazy here, folks. BUT there was also some brilliant news as Hill & Friends unveiled their first ever bricks and mortar store in Mayfair and Mary Katrantzou solved all of your summer holiday poolside packing problems. To see why, read on.
Inflatable Bags are a thing
Yes, yes they are, according to the aforementioned Mary Katrantzou. Summer might be over for this year but BEGONE the pain of trying to shoehorn a stubborn lilo in your suitcase, because now your bag can double as your pool inflatable. Also, flamingos.
Wear your (new) bumbag like the cool kids
House of Holland will show you how. Yes bumbags are very now (and look like they’re here to stay for a bit). You might as well embrace it as they’re achingly practical.
The House of Hill & Friends
Co-founders Emma Hill and Georgia Fendley used their brand, spanking new shop to showcase their SS18 collection. The House of Hill & Friends only opens to the public on September 22 (*frantically books train tickets to London*) but thanks to Instagram and Insta stories stalking, I’ve got a few pics of the inside. Think Farrow and Ball pink, stunning bags and er massive pandas. You now have a new reason to talk a walk down South Molton Street.
Being a Cat Lady is in vogue
So says Anya Hindmarch at any rate. Let your bag show the world just how much you love your cat. Miaow.
Cushions are the new bags
Not really…. but maybe? Mother of Pearl sent its models down the runway clutching cushions rather than bags. I don’t think it will catch on. Or will it? Who knows. Bumbags are back so anything is possible.
So there you go. London Fashion Week: Done. I hope to see you all carrying cushions down a high street near you.
