10 things to love at London Fashion Week

Bill and Anna FROW at Nicole Farhi

The FROW: Sometimes more exciting than the clothes, best spot of the week was Anna Wintour (tiny, tiny little mouse of a woman) in trademark shades and trench coat, next to Bill Nighy, at Nicole Farhi.

Also note: Alexandra Shulman and Lucinda Chambers wearing flats and looking much more comfy than some of the younger editors, who were so “last season” in their super high heels.

All things Minnie Mouse: particularly this one-off necklace from Tatty Devine.

High street neon

Pops of Neon: this angora sweater was everywhere, yours for only £19.99 from H&M. Wear with a leather pencil skirt and kitten heels.

Neon footwear is the way to go, if fluoro clothing is a step too far! I loved Sue’s (WGSN catwalk editor) neon trainers, below right.

Original Street style: despite my previous rant, there was still plenty of inspirational street style to be seen. Loving those patterned coats.

It’s all about the patterned coat

Jonathan Saunders: definitely the show of the week. Held in the amazing Tate tanks, great collection and was sitting directly opposite Anna Dello Russo, Tommy Ton and Susie Bubble. What’s not to love!

Think holograms, metallic, 60’s shoes, huge round glasses and bright red for next Spring/Summer.

Louise Gray: because I’m a sucker for a print, pattern and colour mash up. Not so sure I’ll be rocking those zig zag eyebrows though.

Whistles at the Savoy: best location and view and a collection we can wear – hurrah! Head straight to your nearest Whistles, asap.

Margaret Howell: sheer minimal perfection and all about the shirt dress.

    Dear Amanda + Jane

    Just to let you know: Sara Lund began her third season on Danish television last night. In a new sweater. You will probably see her soon in the UK :-)


  • Amanda says:

    woo hoo! a new sweater! thanks Ulla, are you on twitter? I’m tweeting this now….Ax

  • Ulla says:

    Nope – sorry.

    But I can tell you that the reviews in the Danish newspapers this morning were very positive indeed. And I read somewhere that SL has three (!) new sweaters . . .

    The mood of the first episode is very goosebumb-producing: dark windy, rainy Copenhagen in the last days up to a general election, a chopped up dead man is found in the habour, a little girl is kidnapped . . . SL is trying to get her life back (was it ever?) on tracks but the case inevitable comes in the way . . .

    Thanks for your great blog – I am a daily reader and use a lot of your London-related tips on my annually trip i January :-)

    Oh Ulla it sounds great! We aren’t getting it until November, but that’s not too far away! Glad you are enjoying the blog and thanks for reading! Ax
