Day 3 at London Fashion Week proved to be the feistiest yet, with shows from Topshop Unique, Jonathan Saunders and a few surprises tucked under some very chic sleeves. Time Out was in good company at the Nicole Farhi show as Anna Wintour was among the crowd soaking in the clean collection of white, stone and pale prints (with something of the tourist-chic about it) that debuted on the catwalk. Over at Topshop Unique, there was plenty of room for the models to manoeuvre in wide-legged check-on-steroids trousers and three-quarter-length evening jackets, while others were left clinging to their modesty in sheer dresses with carefully-placed patches. Red, yellow and pale pink seemed to be the colour of choice at Paul Smith’s catwalk show as high-waisted trousers were predominately featured, as were mustard hotpants and flowing dresses. Over at the Tate Modern, Jonathan Saunders brought sequinned cardigans, skirts and vests, tear drop dresses and an electric blue bikini top peeking from under an open shirt of equally electric proportions – coupled with Christian Louboutin shoes and Cutler and Gross sunnies. But the biggest show stopper of the day was definitely Lady Gaga, who opened the Philip Treacy show shrouded in pink mesh, only to be relegated to sitting on the floor as the front row was full. Poor love. Josh Minopoli
