London Fashion Week: Topshop Unique and Vivienne Westwood Red Label

London Fashion Week: Topshop Unique and Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Take two

As London Fashion Week continues, yesterday saw Topshop Unique and Vivienne Westwood Red Label presenting their Spring/Summer 15 collections

Topshop Unique 

Inspired by fun activities such as car racing, tennis and dance parties, Topshop Unique presented a truly 'unique' range of clothes which included striped windbreakers and plenty of skirts and shorts.

Cara Delevingne opened the show, sauntering out in a colour block, flaring dress with a layer of ruffles at the hem. Models closely followed with a vibrant combination of athletic racing stripes and mini pleats. However, the show ended on a more feminine note with flimsy dresses, decorated with ruffles or floral beading.  

Vivienne Westwood Red Label

The concept of Vivienne Westwood's latest Red Label collection was for woman to use their imagination – with looks that resembled a modern day pirate, a Victorian business woman or a sophisticated artsy female  – in Westwood's world you can be anything your heart desires. 

The iconic British designer opened her eccentric SS15 runway with power suits that had exaggerated shoulders and oversize lapels and collars. Juxtaposing masculinity with a retro feminine mood that consisted of looks in floral and polka-dot patterns. Then, moving into the 21st century, silhouettes became daintier and draped, with dresses that elegantly snaked around the curves of  the models in solid colours.
