(Rodarte)

Today's edit focuses around 3 main collections that have really wowed me. The first and foremost is Vivienne Westwood's Red Label (god that she is) and her vigorous campaign for climate change. The models featured intense make up with visible scars on their faces- seemingly stitched up and 'repairing' very much like the environment needs to be. The collection itself is, as ever, flaweless- crazy cool chic and wearable all at the same time. Relaxed fabrics, tiger prints, co-oord houndstooth suits all featuring on the catwalk, not to mention the crazy geometric make-up; bright white faces with either bright white lips and eyebrows or deepest black. There's always so much to take in with Westwood, I needed to watch the runway show at least 3 times to really absorb it!

Rodarte is another collection which has caught my eye- mainly because of how easily it can be replicated on the high street. Featuring a personal story of the designers through tie dye prints, floaty chiffon and vertical/mish mashed stripes it offers those on a lower budget a piece of the action! I'd recommend a good vintage retailer for tie dye (always widely available) and there are some great vertically striped pieces in the sales at the minute- go and grab them now! I also wanted to mention how I've fallen for Chloe Norgaard and her flawlessly dip dyed hair; she's making a  real name for herself at the minute and it is so refreshing to see an alternative model making it on the catwalk!

Finally Zeynep Tosun featured some amazing Victorian ruffles in his new collection with a 21st century touch- beading, 60's revival and western influences in burnt oranges and yellows. I'd not seen anything quite like this before and quickly became accustomed to the bright colours and how they team quite nicely with my new dip dyed ends... this is all just too perfect!!
