London Fashion Week 2014 Day 1 - Todd Lynn AW14

Hands up who likes a bit of soft grunge? One of the shows I always look forward to the most, Todd Lynn never ceases to appeal to my rather dark tastes. As time has progressed, I have begun to crawl out of my charcoal coloured comfort zone, yet I always find myself being drawn to the darker tints.

After last season's softer approach to his traditional rock 'n' roll aesthetic, the Todd Lynn girl has maintained this newly found aesthetic, but is just as feisty and prepared to take on the world. Staying with signature hues of black and grey (this time with a hint of silver injected in the works), the Canadian designer seems to enjoy exploring his softer side, even introducing iridescent fur trimmings to straight cut coats.

Strong featured models strutted down the catwalk donning wrapped loose calve heels - biker boots with a feminine twist. Hair and make-up was kept a minimum, focusing the attention on the clothing which this season was very much about reflection; slimline pleated floor length skirts, tailored suits in lustrous taffeta, and loose capes all caught the light perfectly within the low-lit space.

In true Todd Lynn style, silhouettes were still very much the focal point - cinched in waists, sharp shapes and straight cuts maintained throughout, with pleated metallic skirts adding movement and shine. The ambience? A futuristic, fearless business woman with a flirty quirk.

My favourite piece: the satin floor-lenth ebony frock, reminiscent of a conservative Morticia Adams. Perfection.
