So after all the mayhem, the buzz, the travel, the shows, the shoots, London Fashion Week has finally come to a close. This was in fact the first official Fashion Week we'd done together this year, as last season I flew to Cape Town leaving Loanne all alone (sigh!) So to make up for our previous absence we made sure to prepare everything in advance from our schedules to outfits, hotel stays and photographers!
As they say failing to prepare is preparing to fail and failing certainly wasn't on the agenda.
So day four of fashion week ard our looks revolved around these iconic Karl Lagerfeld bags. We’ve always been a fan of Karl Lagerfeld’s bold designs and constant reinvention and his quirky bags have always been a winner for us! These shoulder bags are the perfect size, big enough to fit all your fashion week essentials but small enough not to worry about dragging a big bag around with you. They can also be worn as either a shoulder bag or clutch. Double tick!
We’ve both opted for different looks here.
I went for a full black number to ensure the covetable blush clutch remains the signature piece! Made from smooth leather it’s striking silver hardware adorned with Karl’s signature makes it a statement piece without it being to OTT. As most of you know, Loanne and I are more into understated, classic pieces that don’t scream ‘look at me now’ so this bag works perfectly for the pair of us!
For my outfit I chose a classic biker style jacket from Karl Lagerfeld that has multiple zip details and coin pockets. The best part of this buttery soft leather style is the metallic silver trim under the collar! I paired it with some classic A-line culottes and a pair of studded black boots. It’s important to feel comfortable during Fashion Week especially if you’re running around from show to show. The clutch gives the finishing touch to my all black ensemble.
So Loanne went for a slightly more casual look made more sophisticated with the Karl Lagerfeld black and white blazer to match her black and white clutch. The blazer’s black satin collar and lapels create a sharp and elegant contrast. The jeans and T-shirt gives a sense of effortless, cool to the outfit which is perfect for a daytime outfit. The best thing about these bags is that they transition perfectly from day to night so you can rock them as shoulder bags during the day at shows then use it as a clutch for the after parties!
These are definitely one of our favourite signature clutches of Karl’s and their versatile nature means we'll be making a lot more use out of them.
