LFW: Armand Basi, Charles Anastase, Sinha-Stanic

The Armand Basi One collection showed an amazingly strong, androgynous look. Love the shapes of the boxy jackets, loose pants and tight jackets - especially the simplicity of the oversized black jumper.

Charles Anastase referred to his collection as "autobiographical" rather than retro, and I do think it steers clear of having the strained retro look. Love the fabrics (patent leather, wool, fur, sheer), the shoes (he always uses the most outrageous shoes - they complement the delicate elements of his clothes perfectly) and the makeup - the dark lip pops up again.
 I also like the combination of the sheer fabric and the shearling at Sinha-Stanic.
