We all know that well-known quote from Yves St Laurent, ‘fashion fades, style is eternal’ and in the wake of London Fashion Week, this has been at the front of my mind.

Is fashion about the new look for the season or should we be investing in those timeless pieces? Like the beautiful Chanel jacket that begged me to take it home from the vintage fair?

So, as I spent the week tuning into shows online, watching the beautiful models glide down the catwalk, new trends follow old trends and old trends with a twist. I reminded myself of that timeless quote from Yves St Laurent, ‘fashion fades, style is eternal’.

There really have been some great designs on the catwalk this week, my favorites amongst many, House of Holland if not only for showing his collection in a car park in Soho and Moschino for the monochrome sci-fi theme.

For now I am going to stop focusing on the next trend and instead secure some timeless pieces to add to my high street wardrobe. A Burberry coat for the upcoming winter and that vintage Chanel jacket, because style is eternal, obviously…
