I know I’ve been slacking on the show reviews, don’t hate me, but you should probably know that London Fashion Week happened last week which means that loads of bloggers and wannabe street style icons were traipsing around soho, looking casual but entirely there to provoke some camera flashes. Ooh burn Cassie, I know. I’m not gonna tell you whether I did that or not but it was my birthday so come to your own conclusion (no I did not). Anyway, like last show season, I went to the David Koma AW16 show in Brewer St car park and once again, like last season, spent 10 good minutes concentrating on not falling up the ramp…or down it (not fashion).
This season I decided to go for a more casual look with this Kenzo oversized sweater dress and I was kind of pissed at myself for wearing over the knee boots because I though everyone would be rocking OTKs but it worked so I wasn’t mad about it. I don’t even need to mention the blue fur. And before you say anything, yes, I did get the Versace Palazzo Empire bag, and yes I’m in love with it.

David Koma AW16 Show
Back to the show. I thought it was very Kendall Jenner with thigh-high skirt splits. As always the collection was sexy and sculptural and super well-tailored. As you can imagine, I was dying over the mesh/crystal top – though I’m not sure how well that would go down on Instagram #FreeTheNipple. The collection had no shortage of metal embellishments, which means it’s a heavy metal A/W season. The caged skirts took a stroll down the ‘walk which means I’ll have to hit up the gym all through the summer to ready my legs for this trend – as Cardi B said “hoes don’t get cold”, so tights are not an option. The colour story was pretty dark, broken up with the metallic embellishments and a few pops of colour: grey, cobalt and burnt orange (take note). The collection was super clean and sharp but kept it sexy too.
