London Fashion Week has built its reputation on the backs of new talent—young designers and new labels that tend toward the experimental, push the proverbial envelope, and are fearless in their aesthetic. Roksanda Ilincic brought the grown-up glamour back to town with an overwhelmingly favorably-reviewed show yesterday that Sarah Mower called glamorous, in an old-Hollywood sort of way.
"The clothes," Mower writes, "made for the kind of viewing that lets a woman lower her hackles and relax while imagining what she might look like at some party or other in the fall. Ilincic's attraction is that she's a woman designer who goes out a lot, and knows that the easiest things sometimes work best."
