SS15 runways were awash with 70s styling, from hippy prints to disco platforms and formidable flares – so delve deep into this decade to inspire your spring wardrobe. Think faux fur, denim dresses, suede jackets and oversized fedoras.
For shoes the sky’s the limit. Platforms are an absolute must but don’t just stop there – try to work in some outsize tassels, buckles or fringing. When you need something a little more slimline go for a pair of pointed 70s style Chelsea boots or flats in croc effect leathers.
From meeting up with one of our favourite fashion bloggers at the Felder Felder show to street style with pugs and astronauts – London Fashion Week just keeps getting better! Watch this space for our full Orla Kiely show run-down.
When our SS15 collaboration with Orla Kiely was launched at London Fashion Week it went down a storm – and the show itself was something special.
The audience were treated to half fashion show, half art installation – and pure Orla magic. Upon entering there was little more than a white picket fence, some empty flower pots and a sheet of clear Perspex. As the show started the models began striding down the runway and planting beautiful wooden flowers into the empty terracotta pots, whilst LA pop artist Alia Penner began live-painting a garden onto the clear plastic – flower power blossoming in front of our eyes.
The atmosphere was electric, the clothes were incredible and we even managed to sneak backstage with the Orla team to create some exciting new content for SS15 – but we have to keep that under wraps for now!
