London Fashion Week spring 2014: The looks we love
“With rumors swirling that LVMH may be investing in his company, Jonathan Anderson upped his game, sending out an intricately-wrought, Japanese-inspired collection that despite being tough to wear, was beautiful to look at.” – Karin Nelson 
“Emma Hill's last collection for Mulberry was a sweet, optimistic farewell to her fans complete with a pastel palette, easy silhouettes, and Turbo, an adorable English bulldog.” – Karin Nelson
“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
“In one of the prettiest and most feminine spring 2014 shows yet; Christopher Bailey pulled out all the stops, masterfully combining lace, pastels, bows and crystals.” – Sam Milner 
“Suffice to say, no designer has analyzed flowers as in-depth as Christopher Kane, who used textbook-like diagrams of their anatomy and the process of photosynthesis to create the coolest clothes seen on London's catwalks this season.” – Karin Nelson 
“The perfect little sun dress that is anything but fussy.” – Sam Milner
“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 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 
"From the bento box lunch to the kimono shapes and obi belts, L’Wren Scott’s message for spring was Hollywood glamour by way of Japan." - Karin Nelson 
“Jonathan Saunders reinvented the track suit this season with ultra silky satins and western accents that add up to a super relaxed and sexy look.” – Sam Milner 
“Erdem dresses up an otherwise sporty look with feathers, organza, and floral appliqués.” – Sam Milner
