LCM:​ Emerging Designers & Street Wear AW14

By January 6, 2014Fashion News

Christopher Kane has given us a very clean cut lookbook thats minimal with slim bottoms and heavy jackets.

Prints this time around seemed to have a scientific inspiration with molecular like constructions and circular shapes reminiscent of cells running as a motif in the designs. Trousers were straight and slightly cropped for the most part whilst a wet look could be seen in blue and black hip length jackets. Suits were smart and simple with turtle necked sweaters underneath whilst some sported subtle prints such as a dark blue mandala like pattern.

What we loved most was the oversized belted puffa that made a formal fit more street and casual. We also loved the molecule emblem sweater and the full red blood cell tracksuit.

Domingo Rodriguez:
Slick AW14 collection, which showcases luxe premium leather items as their best bits.  A soft leather jumper is a contender for PAUSE favourite, along with the red leather rucksack; perfect for that London (City) life.

Laurenceairline:

Made in the Ivory Coast, this collection shows warmth in every capacity, despite being a Winter showcase.  With some more subtle pieces, it can be styled to the taste of the wearer, but my recommendation is to go all out vibrant with this one!

Styling: Bright, bold, daring.
Favourite: Full print suit (as pictured)BENU9105 BENU9106 BENU9109 BENU9112 BENU9121Palmer Harding:
Styling: Shirts are a strong focal point within the collection, set off by the cow hide and suede biker jacket
Colour palette: Monochrome, teal and lime
Key item in the collection: Lime biker jacket.  Wear it casual with Dr Martens.
BENU9218 BENU9219 BENU9221Berthold:

 With the use of fuchsia fused into black and white, this is a bold collection with lots of stand out pieces.
Must have: White shirt with pink elbow details.  Do you dare to wear it with: Skinny white jeans?  If not, play it safe with charcoal or black.

Jae Wan Park:
Love or Loathe? The jumpsuit suit.
Spotted on day one of LCM, this all in one suit is just one piece in the very slick collection by Jae Wan Park.  The rest of the collection is very wearable, with some great tailored options.  The matching overcoats have some serious detailing, the favourite being those with a leather insert panel trim.
The big question that PAUSE is asking is: Would you wear an all in one suit?BENU9239 BENU9241 BENU9243 BENU9246 BENU9248

Dodd:
Subtle, yet with key attention to detail, Dodd is an emerging streetwear designer.  Mixing fabrics, with a colour palette of monochrome fused with lilac, it would be a refreshing addition to the winter wardrobe.
PAUSE loves the sunglasses; just in case we do get a bit of sun!
