London Fashion Week
London Fashion Week has just ended! With 58 catwalks over 5 days, we would love to know how many thousands of pictures have been taken and how many people ended up with blisters!
London is arguably the most eccentric and inspirational show of the lot, us Brits are not afraid to go that extra mile to create mind-blowing shows and electric atmospheres. We have been casting our (ahem) non-expert eyes over the catwalks to discover what trends we may be seeing in spring/summer 2015.
The designer Jean-Pierre Braganza’s collection kicked off with a range of structured chique wear that could make the office a fashion lovers dream, with garments that cut an elegant and confident feminine shape. We love the use of soft tones of black mixed with white and faun. The patterns at first glance seem like something from nature but on closer inspection are almost industrial.
So what might we see on the high street? A mix of figure skimming dresses that cling in the right places and we will be saying goodbye to the body con!
Jasper Conran had an almost nautical feel with navy and white leading his collection. Shapes included elongated peplum and high-necked shirts. We loved the watercolour patterns bleeding into soft silks sometimes in subtle strokes. The collection continued into earthy tones with a mix of tunic dresses and geometric fabric patterns.
So what might we see on the high street? It could be farewell to flowers and hello watercolour splashes!
Excitement was palpable as Topshop Unique take to the stage with Cara Delevingne striding down the catwalk to open the show. A collection that could walk right off the stage and into our wardrobes! The beginning of the show felt American prep meets a tennis court with a fusion of white, red and blue. We were happy to see a hint of pleather in this very wearable collection. Towards the end of the show, the models wowed us in sheer and sparkly evening dresses.
So what might we see on the high street? All we need is a computerised wardrobe and we could be giving “Clueless” Cher Horowitz a run for her money in preppy jumpers and shorts.
We take a walk on the wild side in designer Erdem’s forest style catwalk. Beautiful bold lace leafs and subtle sheer panels stalk down the catwalk, we love the texture of materials used in this collection. Each model almost looks dressed like a beautiful stained glass window depicting a forest scene.
So what might we see on the high street? Lace could be big again next year, but perhaps we will see more intricate patterns and colours.
The designer Osman had a collection that provided delicate embellishment throughout, and showed one of the brightest collections of London 2014 complemented with nude tones. We love the almost shell-like embellishments and use of plenty of tassels!
So what might we see on the high street? We think that tassels and embellishment are ones to watch in spring summer 2015.
We know we are no Anna Wintour, but hope you enjoyed our predictions! If you would like to find out how to always look fashionably flawless why not find out how the French do it here.
