London's lesser-knowns, forecasting a Fall 2010 that is sure to please.
Amanda Aldinger for Second City Style Magazine
After a gloriously rousing (and snowy!) week of fashion in New York,
the runway moved across the pond to London, continuing the wonderful
extravaganza that is fashion month for the Fall 2010 season.
London fashion truly stands alone. The eccentricities of the
British punk/grunge/experimental aesthetic are always such a treat
after New York's shows – although beloved, it's nice to see the shift in tone after a week of American sportswear.
As always, the Brits have not disappointed; proving that after an
exciting excursion Stateside, Fall 2010 will be a season for the books.
Take a look at some of the freshest designs from the land of Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, and the late, great Alexander McQueen.
Jonny Johansson took Acne's fall collection to a whole other universe – literally.
Featuring cool, primitive, layered looks on models resembling aliens,
Johansson's super sci-fi aesthetic brought streetwear to exciting and
imaginative new levels. Oversized jumpsuits with exposed zippers were
layered with fringed booties and wrist-to-elbow metallic bangles, while
peppered accents of fur conjured images of Haute Eskimos. This season,
Johansson experiments with trends like the harem pant in entirely new
ways, bringing fresh perspectives to last season's favorite looks,
while keeping them current and fashion forward.
