LONDON FASHION WEEK SS 2018 - PART 1

 Once again it's that time of the year, when all flock to London in mid September
for its hallowed ornate halls, and for the fashion shows, presentations, spectacles
and inspiration that dwells within, for its global community of dedicated followers
of fashion.
The world famous inviting summer weather with its rain, grey skies and chill to the
bone air entice you into the charmed dwellings of each show, that is until you can
get back to your hotel room and snuggle up to the UK’s famed bizarre TV ads,
and much welcomed central heating. Who hasn't turned on their heating yet?

The Merry Go Round of ever changing venues is a constant workout, for the calf
muscles in a pair of statement heels, slides or mules, should you not rock up
 in one of London's finest gabby black taxi cabs enlightening you with the latest
on Brexit or classic “Never guess who I had in the back of my cab a the other day?"

Back for more of the same and a big welcome to you all for that each season.
We do welcome you, we really do, although it can be in a rather strange and
bizzare fashion.

The catwalk shows and presentations across the city has fuelled passion and
much talk, of what is to come as well as what can I have now, with several
shows having the new (fast fashion) model of see now buy 5 minutes later.
What interest us here at JSTREETSTYLE is the other catwalk of presentations
taking place on the street outside the various show venues and across town.
So,
let us bring you the first limps, a small taster of some of the style and excitement
from the streets during LFW London Fashion Week SS 2018.
In London during the week of September 15th - 19th 2017.
This is nfluencer Dina Torkia. She wears her own independent boutique 
brand headscarf, with an ASOS white top and skirt, Zara boots and a large 
clutch bag gifted to her from Turkey.
This is performer Amy Kingsmark wearing a silver and black dress by 
Gareth Pugh, with a bag and matching silver high heels.
 More foot candy and so moch more to come later on we promise.
Above we have ever popular fluffy fur slides popular around the globe.
Below that is some contemporary statement art from J.W. Anderson 
with his ver cool looking monochrome Cylinder Heels.
 Here's fashion entrepreneur and stylist, the lovely Candy Li of HARDcANDY

performance artist Ann Pendigrast. She always makes her own hats, bags 
and dresses. Usually leaning towards the Lolita side in style. 
On her right is Performance Artist Kala Kala. Same scenario here as before.

of positive energy and happines that you cannot escape feeling being drawn 
into as part of their colourful world.

HYPER JAPAN 2017 STREET STYLE

HYPER JAPAN 2017 STREET STYLE

On the street outside the 2017 Summer Hyper Japan event, the key or popular
Japanese street style trends seemed to be that of Decora and Fairy Kei.
A noticeable or popular colour palette appeared to be in place, so we aimed 
to capture and bring those observations to you the fans. 

Many of you will know or have noticed street style seems to have lost its 
edge in Japan over the last 2 years. Things such as the uncertain economy
lack of budget, shops closing and going out of business faster than ever, 
could well be factors, but the tried and tested faves like Decora, Fairy,
Dolly Kei and Lolita are still popular and especially with westerners. 
Purple, blue hues, pinks and greens are popular the world over with teen 
culture, so no surprise that we encountered lots of it over the weekend.
 
 Two young girls dressed in Decora style and Fairy Kei. 
 Here's a novel twist on the Decora trend. 
 Talking about trends popular in Japan and in the west, you can't ignore
the growth in popularity all over of the shining star of the Goth world. 
SteamPunk always seems to rise to the top, so it was no surprise that 
we encountered it on the weekend. 
 Some of you might be familiar with Performance Artist Ann Pendigrast.
She always makes her own hats, bags and dresses. Usually leaning 
towards the Lolita side of style, we found that this instance of spotting 
the lovely Ann, she had embraced the charms of the SteamPunk genre.

LONDON FASHION WEEK MEN'S SS 2018

Mens Fashion Week or London Fashion Week Mens, formally that of 
London Collections Men, is now in its 5th year and at the most recent
round where its latest home is, 180 The Strand, the world's fashion 
media, stylist, buyers, journalist, photographers and fans of menswear 
gathered to get a taste of what was on offer to us all for the spring and 
summer of 2018. 

What was on offer on the catwalk, in its many presentations and shows?
Well as usual a mixture of traditional the contemporary and the avant-garde.
Reds, Yellow, blues and stripes seemed to have a calling to the designers.
The big surprise was the return of the bum bag. We'll dispense with 
using the americanised name of the popular 90s body accessory. 

And so to the real excitement. The real catwalk of fashion captured  
on the streets around the various show venues.
Though things started off slowly, they soon heated up and when the 
sun really kicked in and not only smiled but laughed its butt off. 
We're talking literally here. 

Day three of street style gave us a glimpse of a little more than what 
we or anyone else could have possibly expected.
Hundreds of totally naked cyclist passing by. We're still desperately 
trying to shake the image of the guy on the unicycle. Don't ask. 
I guess in the moment and situation of London being in the grips
of fashion frenzy, it was a case of The Emperors New Clothes.

The point is that only a week ago London was in trouble, suffering 
a terrible attack bring it to a dark moment, yet days later London 
shone as bright as could be with its random eccentricity we all love
well intact and much welcomed with a cheeky smile.

Here are the street style image offerings we were able to capture.
 Don't you just love her smile? Don't be fooled though. She's hard hitting.
This is the super cool model and tattoo artist Pia Kristine Bilaporter who 
also goes under the name of Cruz from Birmingham, wearing a top by 
Bones, sunglasses by Ted Baker, a thrift shop bag and Vans skate shoes.
 Here's a quick accessories fix headed with the now legendary must have 
IT bag the Dionysus bag by Gucci.
 A tiny embellished box of big pleasures from Dolce & Gabbana.
 Ooh Betty!
Finally ending this post with the amazing model and Co Funder of 
Moy Atelier Betty Bachz, arriving at a show
