London Fashion Week AW/13: Day 3

Sunday of London Fashion Week is the day I look forward to most, because it's usually the day that two of my favourite designers - Margaret Howell and Paul Smith - show their collections.

My last show of the night - Marios Schwab

Don't the red velvet, off-the-shoulder gowns look like something Tara might have worn in Buffy? (in a good way...)

Paul Smith was a delight as always - classic coats, perfectly-tailored, uber-flattering wool trousers and blazers in eye-searing shades of fuchsia, orange and electric blue. And he showed it all in Tate Britain - how cool is that?

Margaret Howell A/W13-14

There was something Citizen Smith-y about the knitted berets the models wore at Margaret Howell and the military theme continued in the crisp shirts with shoulder epaulettes, perfectly-cut wool trousers and elegant, army-style coats that I want SO much. Below-the-knee pleated skirts were worn with slouchy sweaters in the same colour - tomato red, navy or grey - and accessorised with leather satchels and chunky boots or brogues. Basically, every tomboy's fantasy.

In bright sunshine I made my way to Margaret Howell's Wigmore Street store where the show was taking place. I was wearing my Jaeger Boutique trouser suit, Uniqlo mens tee, new Massimo Dutti shoes and I carried my Paul Smith men's washbag as a clutch.

Would you call these brogues? I'm not sure. Anyway, they're from Massimo Dutti.
