<p Londoners had fun these past few days. Starting from last week, they have been basking in the warmth that began on last Thursday, leading some of them to ask each other humorously, “where is the rain?”
If we go by the meteorologists, we should enjoy the sunshine while it lasts, as the rains are around the corner, and they may start falling again. Soon.
The recent London Fashion Week added cheer with its bright accessories and clothing.
But beyond the excitement of brightly coloured clothing and accessories, nothing heralds Spring’s freshness like a bunch of Daffodils peeking out shyly at the sultry winter sunshine.

Whimsical yet serious tones were set when Anya Hindmarch paid tribute to popular British household products with her Autumn/Winter 2014 handbag collection at the London Fashion week.
The bags were designed for the autumn winter collection, but I can see them being hot favourites by summer, what with the accents that remind everyone of the products they probably take for granted because they use them daily.
The funnies were the leather bags festooned with beloved Kellogg’s cereal characters such as the Frosties’ Tiger, The multi coloured rooster from the Cornflakes and The Coco Pops’ Monkey.
Other household items celebrated by Anya include Matches and Ariel Laundry soap.
Rich textures, plush fabrics and elegant shapes in bubbly Orange, were on show this weekend as models sashayed down the runway at the2014 Autumn|Winter Fashion week.
These clothes and accessories representing the golden hues of autumn were refreshing in the midst of shades of traditional black, grey and navy dominating their collections.
Antipodium, Preen, House of Pringle, House of Holland, Jasper Conran, and Emilia Wickstead all offered up pieces in varying shades of Orange.
Antipodium, the contemporary women’s fashion brand, offered up a smart Orange coat; a shift and sweaters and skirts, that all contrasted sharply with the black separates and the grey print dresses with Venus de Milo motifs.
Here is the orange crush-y coat by Antipodium.
