LFW #4: Antonio Berardi, Huishan Zhang, Erdem, Burberry Prorsum, David Koma, Tom Ford | Autumn/Winter 2014-15: Ready-To-Wear

I need this collection in my wardrobe. I love the different panels of fabric, as well as the transition from primarily monochrome looks to emerald greens and deep purples, two colours that seem to be big next season already. The 3/4 length sleeves look gorgeous with the body-con mini dresses, whilst the lace up heels are stunningly seductive.

It seems that the fashion pack will be trying to grow a floral skin over the summer months. Arms, legs, even chests and stomachs are covered in floral hoisery in this collection, and I think it looks fantastic. I especially love the casual jumper in the first photo and the penultimate look overall, though the whole collection is making my heart sing. Incredibly pretty.

Erdem have truly done gothic glamour well this season. Lots of dark colours as well as rich, heavy, luxurious fabrics, the collection is full of stunning embellishments that add a new, revamped feel to the traditional gothic. All of the black dresses are beautiful, whilst the utilization of colour and patterning is applause worthy too.

The Burberry Prorsum show has done something that I always find incredibly satisfying in a collection, and that is to create a very strong through-line. In this case, it is the use of beautifully printed scarves tucked into waist belts. Now this is something that anyone can imitate, and I for one will be doing so. The layering of amazing patterned materials as well as thigh splits and boot style shoes is a combination that Burberry have really mastered in this collection. Despite the slightly summery feel in terms of the more jungle inspired fabrics, the collection shows once again that A/W 2014-15 is all about layering, and with our weather that is an absolute blessing.

This collection hits all of the same, sultry notes that Max Azria for Herve Leger did. Leather, corset inspired waists and lots of dominating black, this collection means business whilst still remaining chic and fresh. I love that way that Koma has taken the traditionally girlish and flirty shape of the skater dress and evolved these looks into a powerful, commanding pieces. Cut outs are here to stay too, even where your shoes are concerned.

Despite the rest of the world falling head over heels for Varsity tees, I can't say I'm such a huge fan. However that is certainly not all Tom Ford had to offer this season. Streamlined dresses, eccentric furs, leopard print and plenty of PVC, this collection is not shy, and that is precisely why we love Tom Ford so much. I adore the first look, reminding me of Jane Fonda's costuming in Klute and reinforcing Ford's statement that he takes plenty of inspiration from the sexual nature of 1970s dress. The fur vest is something I will definitely be trying to find a high street (and faux) version of, whilst Sasha Luss in that red two-piece is totally undeniable.
