London Fashion Week – Notable Trends
There were some notable trends at London Fashion Week and here are some that we can expect to make their way to retailers and trends that we will see on the streets.
Fake fur appears to be a set major designer and high street trend this season and despite the heat at London Fashion Week many show goers sported their fake fur.
The fake furs that made their appearance were less sophisticated and had more of a cookie monster feel with crazy colours and box shapes.
The trend of the faux fur Shrimps label was confirmed by the presence of Alexa Chung who was wearing white dungarees that was accessorised with a furry clutch.
There was no need to measure the heels that the models would be strutting down the catwalk in at this London Fashion Week as flat shoes were all the rage. J. JS Lee showed flat and pointed white loafers, whilst Eudon Choi showed flat Moroccan slippers that had subtle stripes.
The major trend is then sandals, loafers, espadrilles and trainers.
Ruffles and Pleats
Whilst ruffles are usually associated with the girly look, this time at London Fashion Week it was all about the minimal. Bora Aksu’s collection showed fluid and translucent frills which was based on Queen Victoria’s collection of paper dolls.
Eudon Choi has ruffles to striped and oversized shirting and tailoring which combined linen and Liberty print.
J.JS Lee went for a post Celine pleat. The pleats were featured on a mesh dress which gave the look a retro and tennis courts feel.
Daks showed lilac trains and pleated lilac tops that were paired with tailored Bermuda shorts.
The Bucket Bag
Anyone who is anyone was showcasing a bucket shaped bag that had a drawstring fastening. Sarah Harris for instance who is the Vogue editor had a Louis Vuitton one and the New York fashion industries obsession with Mansur Gavriels simple and clean luxe bucket bags has made its arrival.
There were many stylists and editors that were toting the label on the first day of London Fashion Week.
