Amelia’s Magazine | LFW 09 – Sykes/LP.BG S/S 2010


It’s great to see fashion that is a visual spectacle, decease a full-blown piece of theatre unfolding before you, ask along the catwalk. Examples of this that Amelia’s Magazine have seen at LFW this year have been, the Lady Gaga for men look at Studio 805, the fluoro Flintstones ensembles at Jeremy Scott and the celebration of countercouture at Ziad Ghanem. I’m talking pure unadulterated fantasy, style reserved for video shoots or for attention on the red carpet.


Whilst being transported to a parallel universe where ridiculous clothes are the norm, one forgets the other function of fashion – to be worn! What happened to beautiful designs, made for functionality or to be purely easy on the eye? Holed up away from the catwalk courtyard Sykes and LPBG present an altogether more wearable collection.

Two tone silk tops and dresses in a neutral and monochrome colour palette adorn the models of all ages. The Cubist art movement is referenced in the asymmetric patches of muted and bright tones. Some models perched upon podiums to present the collection whilst others walked around and chatted to the press. By the looks of it, the suede leather jacket and skirt suit could quite possibly be a strong trend next Spring. I shall also be fashioning the coral lipstick look too.
