LFW | FW13 part I

 MARY KATRANTZOU
Season after season, Mary doles out her signature digital prints on finely tailored frocks and gowns that are of reasonably wearable nature. I was pleasantly surprised to find some otherwise unconventional silhouettes (perhaps inspired by the eastern tradition? Kimonos anyone?) going down the runway, with lots of beautiful volume involved. Wintry city landscapes, rain-splattered cobblestones in London, and many a dreamy snow-capped scene were the perfect fit for a slightly gloomier fall collection, with its palettes of hazy grays and icy blues. 

PREEN 
Black, white, and red all over. The poppy fire-engine red that speckled Bregazzi's fall collection for Preen brought those graphic prints to the next level chic. Zipper details, outlined collars, and boxy cuts peppered with that cool pixelated animal print, then topped off with beautiful floral diamante embellishments in a lattice like pattern - perfect. 
JEAN PIERRE BRAGANZA
More prints please! Braganza sent some phenomenal pieces down the runway, including very sharp suits and languid gowns all covered in the ultra-cool linear pattern over a graying ombre background. Later on in the collection, he moved towards a deconstructed look with colorblocked basics such as a oversized collared shirt paired with a cascading asymmetrical skirt. 
DAVID KOMA
I always look forward to viewing his collections come fashion week. His mastery with cutting fabric to create something so avant garde yet seemingly wearable is what I find so intriguing. The record disc-esque leather detailing on the flouncy skirts and dresses paired with equally well-done motorcycle pieces easily brought the line up to "worthy collection" status.
