Today marked the final day of London Fashion Week, so we are rounding up our favourite looks that we saw (and we think you’ll adore!) over the past five days. LFW has become known for its “quirk” factor, celebrating many up-and-coming designers whose collections are more about kitschy streetwear than red carpet-ready dresses. However, we love the London perspective in that the designers are always incorporating new materials, mixing interesting prints or featuring unusual silhouettes, pushing us ever so slightly out of our comfort zone.
Almost every designer showed their version of the classic Little Black Dress this week, with each interpretation proving that staples don’t have to be boring.
Quirky English designers like Sophia Webster and Anya Hindmarch can always be counted on to show colourful, whimsical fashions, and this season was no different. We also loved the curious clutches that accessorized some of the darker clothing in shows like Mary Katrantzou and Holly Fulton. We think these playful accessories would be the perfect day-of statement pieces for fashion-forward brides!
The Seventies trend from New York Fashion Week continued across the pond, and many designers interpreted this by including chic jumpsuits. We loved the ones in luxe fabrics that can be worn from day to night shown at Matthew Williamson and Emilia Wickstead.
We called Dark Florals as a trend just last week, and it’s clear that British designers agree! Whether darker prints on light backgrounds or vice versa, the floral feel was less whimsical and more sensibly suited for the colder months.
Another 70’s era trend that made its way to London was that of fringe, though here it was shown in a more glamorous light, with fringe adorning evening gowns and metallic cocktail gowns.
