London Fashion Week: highlights from MondayHere's our pick of the action from the latest shows in London.
Antonio BerardiBerardi sent out mixed metallics, red and pink florals and iridescent pink crocodile skin on models with hot red lips and matching scarlett nails.
Burberry ProrsumAt Burberry, designer Christopher Bailey promoted two main ideas - soft pastel colors and fine yet sturdy Nottingham lace. Coats for the famed English summer came in suede, felt, and cashmere.
Peter PilottoDesigners Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos picked apart the wardrobe of a classical lady (crinolines, houndstooth, florals, lace) and pulled it together with a stunning futuristic twist, inspired by ceramic artist Kenneth Price.
ErdemBacked by live piano and cello, models wore a series of black and white embellished lace and sheer looks, the Canadian-British-Turkish designer's extravagant embroidery celebrating Elizabeth II's 1977 Silver Jubilee.
Tom FordFor his second showing in London, Ford served up plenty of his usual glamor (lush crocodile leather and thigh-high boots), with an almost sci-fi twist provided by mirrored mosaic dresses and sheer form-fitting tailoring.
Christopher KaneKane's show was both scientific and sexy; a curled teardrop/leaf motif played a role as an architectural cutaway, a reinforced pocket and shoulder strap. Lace slogans and floral embroidery were joined by botanical reference diagrams, directional arrows and glittering metallic wool.
