Monday morning went from diabolical to outrageously awesome when my boss handed me a ticket for the Roksanda
show and told me to run for my life – it started in 15 minutes!
Thank the fashion Gods for free runs
, good service on the tfl and a spare pair of heels knocking around under my desk.
I made it! I took the lift straight up to the 14th floor of no.25 London Bridge Street, arriving just in time for a classic Ilincic spectacular.
Full skirts were noted in structured, bonded neoprene, swooping across the runway in a vision of canary yellow, neon coral and lime. Simple black belts hugged the waistlines and contrast inserts were seen featured on both the side and center seams.
Pleated side curtains hung from the dresses that were effortlessly styled over tailored, centre pleat pants in either white or black.
The geometric prints noted throughout the collection came alive against the sharp London skyline – reminiscent of the surrounding architecture; especially noted on the neighbouring Shard and Gherkin.
The SS14 Roksanda lady may go weak at the knees for these fruity sorbet get-ups, but one thing’s for sure, she’s head strong and sassy as f***.

P.S. Bow down to the bomber J in Look 29 – fitttt.
