Grazia's Highlights at Day Three of London Fashion Week: Jonathan Saunders' Show With a View PLUS Marios Schwab's Swoonsome Gowns

19 February 2012 by

On Day One of London Fashion Week, we were excited by Rihanna rumours and Orla Kiely enchanted us in a Twenties tearoom. Day Two saw Clements Ribeiro cats and Vilshenko's gorgeous prints. But Day Three? Well, here are our highlights so far...

1. Mulberry's FROW feast

When you're due at a show at 10am on a Sunday morning after staying up till the wee hours partying with Stella, what better than a little treat to help heal your hangover? This is what we found on our seats at Mulberry - a box of chocs and a delicious smoothy. Thank you, Emma Hill!

2. Fashion Police!

When we arrived at the Nicole Farhi show, we were stripped of our worldly possessions. Well, we were entering the Royal Courts of Justice so fair enough. Those X-ray machines have never seen so many Celine, Prada, Chanel, Mulberry bags! Thank goodness fierce fashion isn't in this season - we're not sure how well spikes and studs would have gone down...

3. Swooning at Schwab

At the Marios Schwab show, the catwalk was filled with breathtaking gowns that made us weak at the knees. We were also rather in love with the fabulous Forties asymmetric hats and the neat tailored separates worn with bejewelled dresses. We certainly didn't see this one coming! It was magical. We hope you can see the beauty with our grainy video above.

4. Padlock Hats

At this morning's Mulberry show, we snuck one of the mega gold padlocks under the (very roomey) skirt on our Mary Katranzou for Topshop dress. It comes in handy as rather chic headgear, no? Forget bags, Mulberry should go into hat making.

5. Show with a view

For the past three seasons, Jonathan Saunders has opted for a panoramic view in some kind of architectural glass building - and this season didn't disappoint. The show took place on top of the Broadgate Tower with a wonderful view of London town just as the sun was setting. Breathtaking stuff...
