👘10 TOP TRENDS FROM THE SPRING 2019 LONDON FASHION WEEK COLLECTIONS👗
London Fashion Week is all wrapped up and after taking a moment to process the wildly different collections, here are some of the top trends you definitely need to be aware of. Given the fact that this is London — the city that birthed punk, Alexander McQueen, and Kate Moss — don’t expect jeans and t-shirts to be anywhere on this list.
1. Animal Prints
It’s a menagerie out there.
2. Cape Dresses
My summer ’19 beach body is ready to go.
3. Capital “F” Florals
Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re thinking — florals for spring, groundbreaking. But seriously, look at these bold prints!
4. Tea-Length Hemlines
The skirt version of capri pants, but chic! (Because, just to be clear, capri pants are the absolute worst.) 5. Dangling Embellishments
Who doesn’t want a little extra motion with every step?
6. Deep Vs
Not exactly bra-friendly, but certainly sexy.
Some lingerie is too pretty to be hidden under other clothes. Veils
Like a gauzy Snapchat filter, but IRL.
Keep it creepy, y’all!
For that high-fashion DIY look.

LFW S/S 2019 Matty Bovan RTW Spring 2019 💛
"Matty Bovan’s ladies don’t exactly travel light, what with their skyscraper hats made from pots and pans, kitchen utensils and feather dusters, and corset dresses made from crochet layers, big puffs of tulle and colored ribbons. Dressed in layered skirts bigger than Scarlett O’Hara’s, his models were two-legged carnival floats — albeit ones who accessorized with Coach bags. Bovan said he took his inspiration from the Eighties filmmaker Derek Jarman and wanted to telegraph a message of “hyper nature.” He thought it would be fun to bombard people with texture in an age of mass information and overload. The dresses were a delight — if rough around the edges and utterly unwearable — with their crinolines, webs of flower crochet, string bikini tops, tangles of string and shiny foil fabrics. The sleeves on bolero jackets were like giant cocoons that were dotted with what looked like bits of broken glass, tulle and string. Knits, meanwhile, came bright and tight and digitally patterned and layered, in chaotic mixes. The whole show was upbeat — and student-y — the sort of exuberant collection that London is known for, but which still needs some serious fine-tuning before it can go commercial."
R.I.P Paulo Macedo 🖤
Paulo Macedo, who has been in charge of fashion for @vogueportugal for several years, has passed away. The creative director who for 15 years created the look of the Portuguese edition of Vogue, was in Berlin with his boyfriend. The cause of death is believed to be a heart attack at this time. His name is inseparable from Portuguese fashion. Paulo Macedo was a model, director of Vogue Portugal and creative of the publication between 2002 and September of 2017. 🖤
Vogue Portugal September 2018 by @branislavsimoncik 💃📽📸
"Amor sem Barreiras" This was the Portuguese title that appears in all the posters in 1961, when West Side Story debuted. Vogue Portugal rewrited it today, because they believe love continues to have no barriers, because life continues to look like an urban adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, because the world without drama would not be able to dazzle anyone. Not so, never in this way, never every day. Obsessed! What an emotion! Spetacular editorial! Bravissimo @branislavsimoncik and team ! This is beyond fantastic 🚀❤🌹 • The magazine is already available on newsstands.
