H by Hakaan Yildirim was the show that closed out the momentous week that was London Fashion Week. Sending editors and fashion folk alike to Milan (or those that weren’t there already) with a positive mindset and ending the week on a high, strong, and sexy note. This stylishly sexy outing for Hakaan was something not to be missed, something I fear sadly was by most editors who are already in Milan. I however was extremely excited to see this.
Appendages neatly laced up fractures in Look 14. The bodice exposed an ample amount of skin and was stylishly paired with a ruched skirt. Also Look 24 featured the lace-up look - this time on a shearling bodice over a leather top and Capri trouser (New York’s trend of Fall 2015) pairing. Buttery leather outfits continued the extremely sexy lineup of outfits presented on the Tuesday. The print from the invitation was featured on off the shoulder dresses and bomber jackets with cinched waists. The huge fur coats that probably had nothing underneath them (like at the Jason Wu show) were extravagant and gorgeous. Stalwart H by Hakaan customers will lap up the scarlet manteau. At the end of the show, an emerald green coat with black criss-crosses and dark green lapels was another sexy, fall-appropriate look - completed with a black neckerchief.
There was a spellbinding enchantment that London has cast on me this Fall 2015 season. This collection was a gleaming finish to a stellar week. London designers are a force to be reckoned with and this season, visibly their strongest both on the business and creative sides of the spectrum, was no different. Hakaan Yildirim obviously is refusing to let me leave this state of content. I can’t say I ever wanted to leave it in the first place.
