The pope ruins fashion week
It wasn’t just overzealous PRs creating havoc. A certain catchphrase has been heard leaving the berry red lips of late attendees: ‘the Pope’s messing up fashion week’.
No word on whether the official fashion week bus was caught behind the Popemobile.
Taking cues from the Pontiff’s capacious attire, it looks like next spring/summer we’ll be able to breathe out, as that 1950s cinched waist look has been conspicuously absent from many LFW shows.
Just like Osman, John Rocha enveloped his models in swathes of deftly cut fabric. Miss Havisham floppy lace hats met 90s minimalism in nude tones of bone and delicate blush and simple, chic shapes met textural surfaces.
There were swoons all round at a draped gown, surely made for Athena or Aphrodite.
