Mary Katrantzou Spring 2014

“Shoes were Mary Katrantzou’s big idea for spring—sleek brogue prints and spongey sneaker-like materials—and it was clever, until the final series of over-embellished cocktail dresses which made the models look like fleet-footed petit fours.” – Karin Nelson

Christopher Kane Spring 2014

Tom Ford Spring 2014

“Lace gowns, mirrored mini dresses, thigh-high stilettos and lots of leather—Tom Ford’s second LFW outing was a refresher course on unabashedly seductive dressing; and it left more than a few editors, attired in the season’s oversized knits, feeling a little, well, frumpy.” – Karin Nelson

Peter Pilotto Spring 2014

“Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos effectively made lace—which has been everywhere in London—look new and cool by overlaying orchid-shaped cutouts of the stuff over the vibrant, digital prints for which they have become known.” – Karin Nelson

Simone Rocha Spring 2014

“Simone Rocha’s collection was study in contrast: the color palette was black and white, the silhouettes were demure but featured racy slits and slashes. The overall feeling was a woman unraveling in all the right ways.” – Sam Milner
