Ashley Isham SS14 Collection at London Fashion Week

Inspired by the 1967 French film ‘Belle de Jour’ starring Catherine Deneuve, the collection started with daywear in light summer tweeds subtly threaded with sparkling lurex.

For that clandestine rendezvous, cloche hats covered the face with only lace peep holes for the eyes.
The hats were created for the collection by House of Flora

 Floral embroidered panels adorned dresses, skirts and shorts.

Transparent PVC as shawls and skirts encrusted with hand appliqu├ęd lace brought an edginess to the collection.

The main colour palette for the daywear was soft spring shades of light blue, pale yellow, white and coral.

For the eveningwear the colour palette became bolder.  Many of the designers used the deep bright shades of cobalt and royal blue in their SS14 collections so it’s a safe bet that this will be one of the hot colour trends for next summer.

Simple fluid jersey gowns revealed they were actually one piece pant suits as the models glided down the catwalk.

Floor length silk chiffon billowed around short dresses.

Creating a mermaid silhouette were the finale dresses embellished with either elaborate design of beads and sequins or elegant guipure lace stopping at knee length over long silk organza skirts.
The belts worn with the dresses are a  collaboration with J Lynch.  One of their classic styles, Daria in snakeskin with pearl on the left and the Liv belt in rose gold on the right.
