1. Anya Hindmarch opened up the last day of London Fashion Week with a bang—the Big Bang, at that. Featuring invisibly suspended handbags that rose and fell with the planetary orbit (yes, there were three glowing orbs rotating high above the catwalk), the show was a visual treat—and closed with not one, but *two* levitating models. Top that!
2. Runners, bikers, yogis, and, yes, synchronized swimmers: the women who modeled Stella McCartney's latest collection for Adidas were fit to say the least. But our favorites might have been the swimmers. Water dancing to DENA's "Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools", these ladies had more rhythm wholly submerged than we do above ground. I've never enjoyed "working out" so much.
3. The hair at Simone Rocha had to be my favorite of the week. Done up in something akin to a chignon-ed fauxhawk, it was cool, modern, tough and yet inspiringly chic. The clothes were similar: prettily romantic and yet undone, with horizontal slices dotting the full silk skirts and skin-toned hosiery masquerading as tops. Earlier this year, Elana marked Simone as one to watch; she was right. And I'm already ready for more.
4. Eerie, over-the-top, and mesmerizing, Meadham Kirchoff showed a collection styled as little girl dolls-gone-bad—all set to the dulcet tones of a beating heart, minor-key violin screeches, and the sound of sharpening steel. Totally creepy, totally fun.
