This is an exciting season for London Fashion Week with many new arrivals to the schedule such as Ralph & Russo along with Tommy Hilfiger as well launches and exhibitions.
Although it’s the shortest during the fashion month, it’s normally the one many editors and trend setters look to for what will be big next season. Praised for experimental designers who are not afraid to push the boundaries of style, there is a lot that LFW offers.
Both day one and two saw the return of some of London favourites such as Shrimps with another bright deliver of faux fur pieces including a floor length lime masterpiece. Eudon Choi played with prints like plaid and delivered strong oversized tailoring with the pink two-piece stealing the show. Ashley Williams played homage to the eighties with zebra print separates and tracks pant, but the day belonged to Ralph & Russo who debuted their first ready-to-wear collection.
It was a cosy start to day two with Mother of Pearl showcasing bags shaped like pillows, while J. W Anderson continued to delight the fashion crowd with everyone’s eyes on the perfect white dress for next summer.
It was another cheerful collection from Molly Goddard which is a nice break from some of the more tailored runway shows we’ve seen so far. The same feeling was found at Simone Rocha who is a master of mixing tulle, silk, satin and lace and making it into something elegant and wearable.
House of Holland didn’t disappoint with another flamboyant daring collection full of geometric patterns and a strong pirate motif. Once you push past the creative flair it’s easy to see which pieces you’d want to wear next summer such as the lightweight cotton voile skirts and dresses or the shimmering slides.
It was an exciting show for Burberry with Christopher Bailey bringing back the classic check in it’s full glory. There was a lot of nods from the front row crowd which included Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell and the Fall 17 collection is already available to shop online. We’ll race you.
