Temperley AW17 Parchment dress

Summer is in the air but the Autumn Winter collections will soon be arriving in the shops. Here’s our sneak preview of more of the best shown at London Fashion Week! Impressive is this Alice Temperley embroidered skirt, jumper layered with matching coat (shown above). This year the centre of focus of London Fashion Week was at the Store Studio, 180 The Strand which featured catwalk shows, fashion installations and showrooms.

London Fashion Week is not just about the buzz inside on the catwalks but what also goes on outside. More and more we’ve been seeing celebrities and fashionistas arriving in supercars and classic cars their arrival in itself a fashion statement.

One of the best go-to providers of these magnificent vehicles is Classic Parade in Shoreditch that delivers and collects anywhere in London and locations around the UK and Europe. Check this spectacular 2015 Lamborghini-Huracan LP610-4 Spyder supercar (see above)  or the Ferrari 488 Spyder and Lamborghini Aventador LP700-9 just one of the many cars they handle. On classics there’s a big choice including Jaguar E-type 4.2, Daimler Sovereign Coupe 75 and on hybrids, the more environmentally friendly McLaren P1.

For a fantastic selection and top service give their Supercar Hire Team a ring today for a quote.
