Ekaterina Kukhareva SS17

Ekaterina Kukhareva SS17

"Mermaids meet sports luxe" is how I would describe Ekaterina Kukhareva's SS17 collection, in which the luxury knitwear designer successfully steers the siren aesthetic away from its ethereal stereotype to a somewhat edgier style. That isn't to say, however, that these spring/summer ensembles are in any way lacking in beauty or femininity. Ocean-themed patterns of shells, seahorses and seaweeds are woven into coral pink vest tops and sea blue two-pieces, alongside floaty dresses that reflect lapping waves.

To complement her early morning presentation, Ekaterina served her guests a perfectly sweet breakfast at the stylish Bronte restaurant, including pastel mini meringues and candy-coated strawberries. As I tucked into my scones and a cup of tea, the models - with coloured fabric braided into their hair - took to a spot of badminton on the other side of the room. The mood was blissfully relaxed, a pleasant change to the typical bustle of London Fashion Week, thereby allowing everybody to interact with this beautiful collection at their leisure.

ASOS | New & Exclusive Brands for AW16

Given today's ridiculously warm and sunny weather (at least here in London and Surrey), one might find it hard to believe autumn is on its merry way. While I swelter at my desk in a t-shirt and shorts, looking forward to an evening of prosecco in Kennington Park, high street fashion labels are stocking up on next season's essentials, from transitional pieces to winter woollies.

ASOS Exclusive Brands

Ahead of AW16, the ASOS Menswear team invited me to preview some of their new and exclusive brands at the company's Mornington Crescent headquarters. Among the labels in the showroom were a number with which I was already familiar, such as ASOS' own Reclaimed Vintage, replicating bygone styles with vintage (or similar) fabrics, and the handsome Heart & Dagger, whose khaki herringbone overcoat from last year's AW15 collection has pride of place in my wardrobe.

Also to feature in next season's releases will be denim by Levi's Orange Tab, sweatshirts and souvenir bomber jackets from Puma, and Korean labels Visionair and Don't Ask My Plan, the latter of which naturally piqued my penchant for polka dots with their spot-print utility shirts. ASOS' selection of grooming products will be equally replenished, with such brands as Mr Natty, Sexy Hair, and Uppercut.

The showroom, which also showcased some beautiful womenswear pieces, was only a sample of things to come, but I'm already excited to supplement my autumn/winter wardrobe, even if I have virtually no available space. (There's no such thing as having too many clothes, just not having a large enough closet.) Until that time, however, I'll be making the most of my summer ensembles.

Norwich University of the Arts, Graduate Fashion Week

BA (Hons) Fashion students from Norwich University of Arts were the first to showcase their final collections on the Graduate Fashion Week runway, which celebrated its 25th anniversary this summer. Watched by an eager audience of fashion buyers, bloggers, critics and peers, the sixteen selected collections boasted an affluence of technique and imagination.

Among my favourite collections from NUA were striking cartoon-themed ensembles by Nikk Edward Stanley, as well as the structurally sensational designs of "Sacred Geometry" by Alice Potts, which rightly earned her the David Band Textiles Award at the Gala Awards Show. Below is just a taste of the talent on the catwalk, but I will be posting plenty more to my Instagram: @unlimitedbyjk.
