    As London fashion week comes to a close, we look back on the opening weekend; where not all eyes were on the designer collections, but the attendees themselves!

    The Khaki Collarless Cape Coat proved to be a firm favourite amongst fashionistas. Blogger babe Sandra Haglesam aka 5 Inch and Up paired the structured statement piece with a cream co-ord; whilst Rosie Fortescue of MIC teamed the timeless tailoring with our Black Eyelet Detail Lace Up Scallop Mini Dress, boasting of its “amazing neckline”. The edgy LBD, with hints of Alexander Wang AW15, turned heads as Rosie completed the look with voluptuous curls and bared her enviable pins ahead of the Julien Macdonald show. During the opening weekend the pair stood as Lavish Alice veterans, taking over our Instagram and Twitter accounts - giving us all things front row goss!

    Georgia May Foote also made sure she was the centre of attention, stepping out in two on trend pieces from Lavish Alice. She kick started the first day of LFW in our super sultry White Crossover Bralet Bodycon Midi Dress; later changing up her previous look to ooze elegance in our Black Floaty Cape Dress and slicked back hair.

  • SPRING/SUMMER 15' LAUNCH

    London Fashion Week exceeded all expectations on the SS15 catwalks. There was a plethora of inspiring pieces - from 3D blooms at Simone Rocha to sequin pasties at Tom Ford - leaving us in serious need of a wardrobe re-vamp! To make things a little more plain sailing in the style stakes, we have selected key-trend pieces from our SS15 collection with advice on how to style them this spring/summer. The nautical trend will be a chic spring option this year, with a heavy stripe focus, most famously seen at Victoria Beckham. Monochrome stripes are an easy to wear nod to the trend and appear on various pieces in the new collection, including culottes, short-suits and crop tops.

    STYLE TIP: Combining the monochrome striped blazer and shorts with a simple crop top (also hot for SS15) puts a chic new spin on the co-ord trend.

    The 70’s trend was un-missable on the catwalks - from Tommy Hilfiger's retro fashion festival to Henry Holland's groupie girl tribute. A key trend within this story was strong floral prints - as seen at Celine, Marni, Marchesa and Simone Rocha. A favourite look from Lavish Alice Spring 15 is the floral bralet and skirt co-ord. This new take on a Lavish Alice classic, incorporate’s the trend of lace detailing while adding a soft feminine touch to the sharp, tailored look of the new collection.

    STYLE TIP: If you’re going to rock the 70’s trend we say go hard or go home – wear with a statement red lip and a frizzed-out mane a-la Marques Almeida… say no to normcore!

    Lavish Alice spring:summer 2015 trends

    Throughout the collection there are subtle hints to the popular ‘Military Utility’ trend. Strong details on key pieces include large patch pockets and silver visible zips – these worked seamlessly with Lavish’s basic asthetic of soft tailoring for a strong, sharp, turned-out look. The sand trench is a stand out piece and is one of the key products influenced by this look, as well as the black pocket peplum dress which, was heavily influenced by Australian designer, Josh Goot.

    STYLE TIP: This stunning sand trench will look just as good dressed down as dressed up – just add a pair of fashion forward thigh-high boots and you’re all set!
