Issa, Vivienne Westwood Red Label S/S 2010
Richard Nicoll, Matthew Williamson, S/S 2010
Daniella Issa was lucky enough to snag Naomi Campbell for her S/S 2010 show. The super strutted her stuff in a swirl print one-shouldered swimsuit and she appeared later in a tropical print beach cover-up and sleek monochrome maxidress. As ever Issa was characterised by gorgeous dresses to take their jet-setting wearers from beach to bar to dancefloor.
Vivienne Westwood Red Label
Dame Viv gave us a collection full of her signature asymmetric details, bustier dresses and draped fabrics. Daisy Lowe and Pixie Geldof modelled while big sister Peaches Geldof sat front row with Alexa Chung cheering them on.
Darling of the London fashion scene, Richard Nicoll followed on from a much-lauded show last season with yet more lust-have designs. Moving on from last season's blocks of acid orange and pink, the designer went for a more subtle colour palette of dusty pinks, dove greys and cool blues. Soft silks and metallic fabrics were fashioned into peg leg trousers, short shorts and layered skirts. Fringing and touches of gold statement jewellery added luxurious details.
Though he normally shows at New York Fashion Week, Matthew Williamson has been tempted back to London for the 25th anniversary. And he didn't disappoint. Williamson nailed it with graphic diamond prints and bright hues all delivered with the polish of New York sophistication. Long maxidresses to be worn at a poolside party in Ibiza plus flirty, shorter styles ensured this was on our list of LFW favourites.
