London Fashion Week AW08: Armand Basi

After a couple of days of running from show to show and spotting similarities in each collection, you tend to think you have a fair idea of what to expect from the rest of the week however the collection at Armand Basi today totally threw me off. While many other designers so far have opted to cinch waists with skinny or big belts, designer Markus Lupfer went with volume and lots of it!

The collection was rich in colour and featured cropped jackets, smock dresses with large swirly prints, close fitting print jumpers, billowy full bodied skirts and oversized parachute type dresses that resembled pieces from past seasons of Oscar de La Renta, only 10 sizes larger.

Admittedly some of the dresses were slightly impractical, (I can’t imagine how one would navigate their way through a crowd in a couple of those gems) but they were oh so pretty!

When the gorgeous Liya Kebede led the troop of models out for the finale, I couldn’t help but wish the show had lasted just a little longer….
