We may be biased given that we’re based in the UK, but London Fashion Week is our favourite of the four major fashion capitals. LFW is seen as the place for emerging talent as it’s buzzing with young creatives ready to leave their stamp on the industry. Queen Elizabeth herself even made an appearance on the FROW at Richard Quinn, seated next to Anna Wintour. Did her majesty attend any other fashion weeks? No. London: 1 New York, Milan and Paris: 0.
Hawaiian shirts are often associated with dads on holiday but Ashley is making us really want one – they look surprisingly edgy when paired with a graphic tee. While we don’t think we can quite pull off a cowboy hat in our everyday style, we’ll definitely be making room in our wardrobes for the check print jacket and vintage inspired denim.
House of Holland
For someone renowned for their love of prints and a kaleidoscopic colours, Henry’s latest collection for HOH was surprisingly toned down in comparison to his previous shows. Our coat collection is already getting a little out of hand, but his designs have inspired us to keep an eye out for two-tone denim and XXL puffers.
Molly’s been the it girl of LFW for a couple of seasons now with her designs spotted on A-lister’s including Rihanna, Fearne Cotton and Adwoa Aboah. She loves a frothy tutu-esque dress, but as her latest collection shows; you don’t have to be a stereotypical girlie girl to rock her designs. Her crop top and skirt combo will look just as good with your trainers of choice as they would with skyscraper heels.
We haven’t seen a Bella Freud slogan tee/jumper that we didn’t like! While there’s plenty of knits in her latest collection that we’ll be lusting over for the foreseeable future, we also love the sports luxe elements in some of her pieces – especially the black and mustard trousers!
Faux fur and bright colours are two of our favourite things so we’re forever grateful to Shrimps for combining the two in both a classic yet stylish way. If there’s only two things we can take-away from this presentation, it’s that we definitely need the heart printed coat in our lives and a patent leather jacket looks SO good over billowy trousers.
Last but not least, Burberry. After 17 years at the helm, Christopher Bailey ensured he went out with a bang. He revisited some of his most-loved designs with the beige Nova check, delicate brocade and chunky shearling jackets all making an appearance on the runway. What we loved most was how many of his looks were finished off with a rainbow print – by way of a skirt, hat, bag, gilet or roll neck, in tribute to the LGBT+ community.
