Little Shilpa – LFW AW16

I don’t think it will come as any great surprise to regular readers that I attended the Little Shilpa presentation during LFW AW16. For me, Little Shilpa remains on of the great creative minds in British fashion. I think I touched on a lot of reasons in the last review, however one of the things that draws e back to her work time and again is her ability to change, develop and redirect.

In the last couple of seasons she has taken the darker notes, the more primal philosophies of the mind and produced collections that have tapped into those thoughts and desires we may all keep hidden. So in a season that so many other designers tapped into those things what did she do, she ignored the trend she led on and went soft and coloured using bright pastels.

There has always been a sense of playful fun about the label, and this season more than ever it has been promoted. The almost electric colours and soft yet structured shapes make this the most different collection I saw during LFW. Each a statement of personality as much as a fashion statement. Little Shilpa creates and crafts the extraordinary. I remain a devoted acolyte* of the House Of Little Shipla, and so should you. The collection is available now.

*see I’m not just about tweed and old fashioned things.
