London Fashion Week has just finished and with it brought an expected amount of creativity, chaos and over-whelming talent.
With a huge variety of catwalk shows and presentations taking place at numerous locations doted around the city within the LFW schedule, it can be hard to keep up with the uncountable looks, shows and trends for next season.
Here we've picked our top highlights from the star studded LFW schedule:
Christopher Kane’s stunning collection within the LFW schedule included a bold primary colour pallet and sophisticated tailored styles, and stood out to us for it’s unique but wearable garments. The collection included rich velvets, sheer under layers and even silhouettes of naked women! The collection was brought together perfectly with touches of metallic embroidery, a definite favourite of ours.
Erdem never disappoints, and this show positioned in the centre of the LFW schedule was no different. The garments looked as if they had been skilfully taken apart and then carefully remade into something spectacular. The collection included glittery metallic brocades that were detailed but also fraying stylishly at the edges. We also saw dresses patched together with ribbons of gracefully aged fabrics, and sophisticated tweed suits that were hung with loose threads, creating an interesting and beautiful collection that was not to be missed.
Giles show started with a front row filled with the full celebrity scale of fashionistas, including Cara Delevingne, Claudia Winkleman, and Jasmine Guinness. The collection focused mainly on Giles much loved dark side with a sort of gothic Edwardian theme. We saw elaborate ruffled blouses, PVC jackets and plenty of bows and ruffled high necks, which surprisingly worked extremely well. Each model sported a glossy black lip and pulled back hair that added a high fashion vibe to the whole show.
The early 1970s were the key inspiration for this collection, and this was made clear from the use of a variety of decorative embellishment such as fringing, mirror work, subtle quilting, appliqué, and camel pony skin. Even though this sounds like a bit of a texture overload, it really wasn’t! The collection offered deep autumnal colours, drama and beauty; a stunning and rich collection that we can definitely see being the next biggest trend.
