LONDON FASHION WEEK

As we all should know, London Fashion Week ended last week and moved to Milan; and what an enjoyable time it was to see what trends are set to evolve in Spring/Summer 16. With the likes of the Burberry catwalk filled with amazing celebrities on the front row, or Vivienne Westwood showing of her daring designs there’s no denying that each day of LFW was packed full of glamour and drama!

Paul Smith

Paul Smith Spring/Summer 16 definitely focuses around the idea of holiday filled pieces; think soft and floaty and full of lots of summer colours like sunset orange and white. Paul must have had the concept ‘breathable layers’ in mind when creating his pieces, which is why they are so wearable and practicable for the summer heat. We absolutely loved the panelled dresses and mixture of animal prints and florals that featured on his runway!

Burberry

We all love a good Burberry show, and can always guarantee that what we see will make us envious of the models wearing it… there’s really no denying that! What appeared to be the main concept in the Spring/Summer 16 show was women wearing men’s tailoring… almost British Officer style. The gold details and caged ankle boots will be a must have thing come Spring next year. Also the traditional Burberry trench coats got revamped and could be seen covered in the most exquisite prints.

Meet Our New Brand Olivia Burton

oliviqaaaa

Olivia Burton watches have just landed in our Thackerays store and online and we are so excited to share with you these beautiful creations.

Olivia Burton was created by Lesa Bennett and Jemma Fennings who met at the London College of Fashion. Their watches definitely offer a change from the traditional and the attention to detail provides us with a collection that is affordable, wearable and bursting full of British Style.

We would say that Olivia Burton watches are a combination of ladylike vintage and catwalk trends with woodland illustrations and floral botanicals creating such unique styles of watches. Their 2015 collection is inspired by the classic British Gardens, which is why there are lots of floral patterns and butterflies perfectly captured in their designs.
