LFW Aw16 Day One Reviewed

It’s back, my mildly off topic off centre, and off message look at London Fashion Week each day, well you’ll be pleased to know, by and large the rain held off, the queues stayed big, and there was an endless stream of people walking up and down, trying to act casual but trying to get papped. However there was some amazing design, some amazing street style, and some amazing peppermint tea in a cafe, but I’ll keep that place a secret so I can still get a table.

Yes folks, the overrun streets returned, and Brewer Street groaned under the weight of all those feet and outfits, but well done to whoever deigned this big screen that looks like a watermark in pictures. The hustle and bustle was huge, the excitement tangible. And there were lots of photographers, including me I guess out and about.

But you and I dear reader, we love a bit of street style, and I don’t mean the out there, push it over the edge, there were some stunners though, but I like to bring you the more wearable, the more practical, and as ever the day delivered some great looks, and you may even recognise an FW fave in the mix here, I should confess our bumping into each other was pre-planned, and I now simply adore Banke.

But I did tell you there were queues, all the queues . .

But both Little Shilpa and Ong-Oaj Pairam will always be worth the wait. Genius always is.
