Top Trends from London Fashion Week
This year’s London Fashion week has seen bold colours, plenty of print and statement sleeves filling the catwalk. Burberry stole the show with their See-Now-Buy-Now collection and Christopher Kane left us all wondering if we should purchase a pair of crocs.
Here’s our favourite trends from London Fashion Week.
Gingham has been reworked and is all over the catwalk and in stores. House of Holland's collection was heavily influenced by parks and picnics and is full of gingham prints. Simone Rocha, Molly Goddard, and Peter Pilotto also had flashes of gingham throughout their collections.
The longer the sleeves the better. Ryan Lo designed sleeves that almost touched the floor whereas Mother of Pearl designed more subtle ones that just covered the hands. The new way to wear your sleeves is not on your arms so don’t worry if your nails aren’t painted, they aren’t going to be seen.
Florals are always a staple at London fashion week and this year they have turned micro. Erdem has designed a collection full of 1930’s pieces covered in tiny florals whereas Emilia Wickstead kept the floral to a minimum, only featuring on some of her floaty dresses.
The cut out has been a big trend on this year’s SS catwalk. Lots of designers have showcased this trend and showed us lots of different variations whether it been the shoulder, hips of stomach that’s is flashing the flesh. Christopher Kane took the cuts to the extreme and Edrem added some toughness to a flowy dress.
Another Boomerang trend is ballooning sleeves. They were seen in all shapes and sizes and the desginers took their inspiration from the 16th century. Burberry’s Christopher Bailey took influences from Vriginia Wolfe’s novel Orlando and J.W.Anderson a big advocate of statement sleeves was inspired by the jackets of Henry VIII.
