London Calling #LFW

LONDON FASHION WEEK
London Fashion Week (hereon known as LFW) was in full swing this week. Celebrity spots included Daisy Lowe, Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth and Agyness Deyn who were all on-board to see the Autumn/Winter 2017 fashion shows. While editors and bloggers are busying themselves reporting solely on the upcoming apparel looks straight from the catwalk, we’re here to break down exactly what to wear underneath the top three trends. Here is our round-up of the key looks from Versace, House of Holland and Emilia Wickstead – and our take on how to fit your lingerie around (and under!) them.

Donatella Versace’s show was a tribute to the 1990’s, with full on rave music pumping from the runway. The hard-core/techno homage drew in a crowd which featured Rocco Ritchie and Jourdan Dunn. The show was opened and closed by the Hadid sisters and featured loud and proud branding (think ‘Versace’ emblazoned on necklines of evening dresses and puffed-up jackets). 
 
This look was all about lack of structure, think loose fitting t-shirts and leggings – given shape with Ziggy Stardust inspired tailored jackets. To keep the feel relaxed, look for lingerie that is comfortable and unstructured like the Wacoal Embrace Lace Softcup bra. This beauty of a bra gives all the support, in a natural and subtle way. 
 
House of Holland goes American

Henry Holland is most famed for political statements and provocative slogan T-shirts, so it was with a level of expectation that we braced ourselves for some poignant direct statements. However, the designer went against the grain with an all-out homage to Americana – particularly mid-west America, in a collection he christened “a love letter to America”. Key pieces included fringed shirt dresses, cowboy boots and hats, and checked mini-skirts. 
 
In terms of lingerie, the look was varying – there was a homage to Dolly Parton with substantial bust lift, to a ‘barely there’ appearance with all shape hidden under oversized sweaters. To get down with the ‘boost’ approach, shop the Wacoal Amazing Assets Push-Up bra or opt for a more natural shape with the Wacoal Eclat Contour Bra, in a perfectly patriotic hue. 
 
 
Emilia Wickstead does denim

Emilia Wickstead counts Gwyneth Paltrow as a muse, and has just dressed Emma Watson for her ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Premier. In fact, the designer fashion-house has become famed for their feminine and chic signature – so we fully expected LFW to be all about statement bygone eveningwear. It was, therefore, with somewhat of a surprise that the fashion power-house took the heavily walked path of denim and print. However, while it wasn’t ground-breaking, it was a bold statement from a designer who was obviously working hard to get out of their comfort zone with sleeveless denim tops and floor sweeping maxis. 
 
This look relies heavily on the power of a strapless bra, to be paired with asymmetrical necklines and strapless bodices. If you love the look, make sure you invest in the Btempted Faithfully Yours Strapless Push Up Bra to avoid unsightly bra straps, without forgoing lift.
