Minimalism In London

Yesterday morning (9am on a Saturday) I went to Somerset House for the Daks SS11 show. After queuing for a bit and happily find out that I could actually take (quite a good) seat the models started coming out. Light weight garments in crisp whites and dashes of mustard fit in perfectly in the brand's concept of a British traveller traveling through India. The minimalist clothes, very much in the line of what we saw in New York, mixed the masculine and the feminine -pleated skirts and prominent shorts with boyfriend jumpers and maxi dresses made like a men's shirt. An elegant and timeless collection that went perfectly with London's morning sunshine.
Later that day Giulia and I were supposed to attend the Osman show but were unable to because of lack of organisation, which was a shame. The collection, also in the same of simplicity we spoke of before, relayed almost completely on the shape. Trapeze dresses and tops, circular tails and some really good classic tailoring of straight lines. The colour palette went from earthy linens to muted neon silks but progressively gave way to more black. All in all, a modern with a tiny bit of drama and a stroke of elegance.

I'm off.
