The @gucci AW19 show saw a set comprised of 120,000 LED lightbulbs, a 100 meter mirrored catwalk as well as floor to ceiling mirrors that refracted blinding light back at the audience. Based on the concept of “persona” and “identity”, @alessandro_michele employed the use of masks, like the one seen here in the form of a bronze eagle, to emphasise the dual function of a mask. Quoting German philosopher and political theorist, Hannah Arendt on using masking as a tool to present ourselves “as a distinct and unique being among equals.” RG @gucci

“Christopher Kane is to London what Marc Jacobs is to New-York: the fashion week saviour who consistently delivers clothes worth gasping and drooling and investing and dreaming.” Pam Boy reports on the @christopherkane AW19 show, which saw models including @walldamort, @kukuawilliams and @stuckinteenage walk the high-rise office block runway to the sound of a high pitched hum. Wearing flouncy satin and lace dresses with crystal embellishments and emblazoned with the words ‘Rubberist’ and ‘Looner.’ In reference to Kane’s exploration of fetishism and sexuality.

@halpernstudio’s AW19 collection looked to motifs and shapes inspired by the Art Deco era as well as the Russian-born French artist Erté, whose illustrations were abstracted and printed onto garments. “Decadence-that’s really what started it for me. You can see so many times in history where decadence was not only being decadent, but it was a form of getting through things. A form of rebellion. And that’s still the most important thing for me: being able to go into that fantasy and pulling things out that make you feel like you’re going to be ok.” Read the full interview with ...
“Star of the nuit and modello of the moment Gigi Hari was seen slinking, bopping and guzzling Ciroc top to toe in Zandra Rhodes as the crowds outside swelled clawing at the doors, we lassoed the chicest from the throng, rescuing L’Oréal award prize winners Sheryn Akiki and Goom Heo.” @guiguir0sa and @harrie.bradshaw report on last nights #loverave, where guests danced to dj’s including @2manydjs, @jodieharsh and @new.found.form in celebration of #love21.

We are so saddened to hear about the passing of Karl Lagerfeld, our thoughts are with his friends and family. “Most of ideas I have come by trying not to think of ideas. Then they come to me. Ttchh! Like an electronic flash.” Said Lagerfeld to Jo-Ann Furniss backstage during fittings for the @chanelofficial SS15 show photographed by @alasdairmclellan in #love14.

@babbym’s AW19 show was a conglomeration of ideas based on folklore, magic and a perverse letter from a “crap furniture company” that landed in his grandmothers letterbox ending with the phrase ‘In Uncertain Times, This Is A Sure Thing!’ Which would become the collections title. Bovan honed in on the 16th Cenutry Pendle witch trials, creating Edwardian shapes with distorted prints and floral fabrics in collaboration with Liberty. There were choppy backwards bobs by @sydhayeshair, deep red lined lips by @mirandajoyce, an array of hats by @stephenjonesmillinery for @coach X Matty Bovan and shoes by @ginashoesofficial for @coach X Matty ...
@viviennewestwood held her AW19 show at St Johns baroque church. A cast of characters including the iconic former face of the brand Sara Stockbridge, the director of Greenpeace John Sauven and Rose McGowan walked around the catwalk church reciting facts about the dire state of global warming. The show’s key message was hidden in Westwood’s new logo, three symbols meaning ‘one world hope.’ Swipe to see @tommygenesis wearing Westwood from our #movinglove series by @callthis_number, @steve__mackey, @douglashartfilm and @kegrand.

"Last season it was all about my family, and by the end of it I felt so exposed, telling everybody about my aunties and uncles. I can't talk about anything personal anymore" @simonerocha_ explained to LOVE post show. This season, having decided to utilise this vulnerability, Rocha continued "I started looking at photographs of these women being exposed.” The result being a collection that commented on female sexuality and voyeurism, with prints made in collaboration with the Louise Bourgeois foundation.

Our #voicesoflove at the Central Saint Martins MA show, @guiguir0sa and @harrie.bradshaw, went backstage and gave their verdict on the evening’s winner Sheryn Akiki. “Sheryn’s girl does her mascara in the bumpy back of a bus, wearing a sequin gown that has been crafted to resemble the idea that she sat down and the sequins were left behind.” Click the link in our bio to read more and watch the full film by @mikakailes
