London Fashion Week – The Trends We Love
Fashion month is one of our favourite times of year. And the best thing about it is it gives us some serious inspiration for our own style! Check out our favourite catwalk looks from London Fashion Week. Which trends will you be rocking?
Evening Wear For Daytime – Halpern
The Halpern collection (named ‘inappropriate glamour’) featured pieces you might expect to wear on a night out, or to a formal occasion. It contains lots of sequins, sparkle and drama after all. But designer Michael Halpern believes that glamorous clothing can be worn in the daytime too. He says “Why can’t you wear a sequinned jacket during the day? I don’t mind being called an evening wear brand, because most people wear it like that, but it’s nice to challenge it.” We couldn’t agree more. After all, life IS too short to wear boring clothes.
Anything Goes – Central Saint Martins
The Central Saint Martins collection was one of the more ‘out there’ ones of London Fashion Week. So naturally, everyone’s talking about it. We love how the designers incorporated a range of materials and objects that we wouldn’t usually associate with clothes. Ok, so not everything from the catwalks easily translates to clothes that are actually wearable. But it doesn’t mean we can’t take some inspiration from this trend at home. If your a creative type, try playing around with fabrics such a netting, and kooky accessories. You could end up with an amazing look!
Checkered Cool – Richard Malone
The pattern of the season is definitely checks. We love check prints as they can be used to create a range of styles, from sophisticated to grungy. All kinds of check prints were seen on the Richard Malone catwalk, from tartan too houndstooth. We think it’s definitely the reason his show is one of the most praised of the season. This is a trend that is easy to wear, whether you go head to toe or stick with a single piece. And it makes a statement. We love!
Victorian Inspiration – Simone Rocha
When we think of era’s that we want to take inspiration from with our style, the Victorian era isn’t one that immediately springs to mind. But it should be! Victorian inspired clothes are super pretty and feminine. They take us back to our days of playing dress up, and we love that we can translate that into high fashion style. Think lace, bows and modest, intricate clothing. This trend will have us feeling like one of our fave literature heroines.
Blanket Beauty – Roksanda
A trend that’s cute AND cosy?! Yes please. Blankets are one of our favourite things in the world so any excuse to take one with us everywhere is a yes from us! (It might even help us leave our bed in the morning!) We love the soft yellow hues in this Roksanda outfit, they make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
Follow The Rainbow – Burberry
If rainbow’s don’t make you happy then you need to take a long hard look at yourself! Wearing all that colour is guaranteed to lift our mood and bring out our inner child. One brand that really brought the rainbow to their show this fashion week was Burberry. Christopher Bailey, in his last show for Burberry, created a collection that was inspired by his desire to support the LGBTQ+ community. He explained that “There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength, and our creativity.” Too right, and these values have resulted in a stunning collection.
Back to Black – Port
While rainbow colours do make us super happy, black clothing with always be one of our go-to trends. It just looks SO good and it’s SO flattering. When you are having one of those ‘what do I wear?!’ days, going for all black everything is an option that’s always a winner. It’s a guaranteed route to a high fashion look. Try simple yet striking wardrobe staples like this Port suit and you can’t go wrong!
