Two iconic designers, two very different styles... Both rule the runway at London Fashion Week! From the laid back Summer stripes of Paul Smith to the rock n' roll, Studio-54 style of Tom Ford - Spring/Summer 2015 Collections portray a wide variety that we are completely obsessed with!
Paul Smith's aesthetic is all about the stripe, the floral and the office chic looks. With a palette full of taupes, light blues and blush roses, Smith had to keep things interesting as he turned to fringes, tuxedo lapels and drop hems. Adding touches of feminity throughout with panels of sheer silk on skirts and blouses, pink and blue stripes on fringed tank tops, and flowy dresses with pleated and dropped hems that are perfect for Summer.
While on the complete oppostie side of the spectrum, Tom Ford presents a risque, sexy, rocker-chic collection full of black leather, dark sequins, blocky heels, opaque tights, flaired pants with messy teased hair and sunburst pasties... yes, we said pasties! Models strutted down the runway in second-skin pantsuits, skirts so short you can see the top of the stockings and sheer, sheer and more sheer everywhere! In true Tom Ford fashion, his "message continues to be that you can write your own rules."

Paul Smith channeled Stevie Nicks as a cover of "Go Your Own Way" opened his women's collection at London Fashion Week. He cut and pasted prints into new patterns and gave his models the “skill” to pull off an effortless British lounge appeal featuring flowy silk pajamas with matching silk bottoms. It may have looked like it was time for bed however, these outfits were fixated to be worn out and about - the buzzword the designer kept saying backstage was "wearable".
As the show went forth, you began to see the transformation from “wearable” nightwear to jewel-toned patterns including stripes and paisleys as Paul Smith was inspired by wallpaper and tapestry prints. Smith gave the collection a seasonless fluidity that was balanced with color-blocked outerwear, long evening coats and many printed layers.
