They say good things come in threes, that often seems the case in fashion, once, twice, three times makes it a trend. My favourite trend of the season has to be painted jackets, be in a hand painted leather or a quirky Elvis print, its one way to stand out from the crowd.
The all out biggest trend spotted at LFW this season was the neon beanie. I am not joking when I say it was like a plague, one out of ten people were wearing them. Reminded me of that episode of Dr Who where the small boxes appeared all of a sudden. Its funny how things happen like that at LFW, you could walk around you home town in a bright pink beanie all you like and never see another soul wearing one, then bam, enter Somerset House and everyone is wearing it! By the end of the week I was seeing so many I had to wonder if people were hotfooting over to Convent Garden just to buy one? It was cold so nice to see a practical trend, however I was surprised to see some wearing them pulled up high, just perched on the head, – no ear warming here! Remember Brian Harvey from East 17, apparently he used to stuff a pair of socks under his beanie to get it so vertical!
