Christopher Kane: one of my favorite LFW shows. Christopher Kane has been a favorite of mine ever since his neon surge last Spring. A year later, and he gives us an understated palette of solids silk shifts, bold florals and beautiful flower motifs. Like in many collections that we've seen this season, there was a futuristic appeal to Kane's runway, and it was one of his most inspired (by flea market finds) and lofting collections.
Burberry Prorsum: this seasons Prorsum show had a color palette reminiscent of this seasons Proenza Schouler and of past Fall collections, but that didn't stop Christopher Bailey from creating an ultra-wearable and super-chic Spring line. As always, the jackets were stunning, in an array of cropped bombers, trenchcoats and rain slicks, but the stand out of this collection for me was the somewhat tribal influence. Many of the accessories, from the belts, to the bags, to even some of the neckwear has an African inspiration, as did some of the prints on the separates in the collection. Prorsum has always been the "cool girl" of the four Burberry lines, and this collection served as the perfect uniform for the downtown English girl.

Erdem: the show opened with a mixed prints showdown of every type. It was spring colors everywhere as every silhouette imaginable came down the runway in som very delicate and interesting prints. Then the show transitioned into ethereal gowns and day dresses that swept down the catwalk in powder blues and gauzy nudes. Much of the collection was lingerie-inspired, and the floating mixture of bold prints and muted nightgowns gave a stunning Spring runway.
