LFW SS16 Favourites

Wednesday, 23 September 2015

As London Fashion Week draws to a close, it's time to reflect and highlight some of my favourite shows and collections from the week. I personally prefer the AW season of fashion week as I enjoy seeing all the knits, dark colours and coats on the runway, but this SS16 season was amazing! There were so many favourite collections, that I had a hard time narrowing it down to fit into this post, otherwise we would've had a post the length of a short novel - and nobody wants that do they?

Unlike New York there was a different vibe to the designs at LFW, they were a lot more adventurous, brighter and fun. And while I loved the designers collections at NYFW I feel that they did play it quite safe. The designers at LFW brought similar trends seen in new york such as stripes, laser cuts and sheer fabrics, but it was so much more...British - and I love that! Here are my LFW favourites:


Julien Macdonald

Now this a show I wish I could've seen in all it's beauty. With slicked back hair, and oil-licked skin, the models looked a dream, a beautiful contrast against the historic walls of Smithfield's market. The clothes were an opulent mix of laddered knits and laser cut silk, with a plunging neckline here or there. This collection was made for the modern woman, one who is sure in herself and her beauty. However since I could never afford a Julien Macdonald dress, it'll be interesting to see how the high street's interpret this trend come next season!

Burberry
Iconic and quintessentially British, Burberry delivered excellence again this season! From the orchestra, to the black lace and the beautifully edgy yet sophisticated backpacks - the show was every fashion lover's dream! I don't know about you guys, but I know I'll be first in line to get me one of those personalised backpacks as soon as they hit the stores. They would look great with a Burberry trench for spring, don't you think?

Minimal and clean, this collection was right up my street. Focusing on monochrome, khaki and a wine/oxblood hue, the colours were right on trend for the upcoming season! With simple lines, and an even simpler form of footwear (white nike air force ones) brings a look of fresh and calm femininity - a look I think will be perfect for the summer season!

Simone Rocha
This was perhaps my most favourite collection from fashion week as I am such a fan of Simone Rocha, I love her designs! Delicate but strong, this line embodied everything that was girly but with an edge. Inspired by her trip to Japan, she used Tulle and print to recreate her vision of Kyoto. While rubber was used to create straps, similar to the art of Japanese bondage. It was a true work of art and such a dream to look at!

Did you attend London Fashion Week? Who were your favourite designers on the catwalk?

  4. The Burberry collection is so pretty! A couple of my personal favourites were Topshop Unique - I definitely need a pair of fluffy heels in my life!! Sophia Webster's mermaid launderette exhibition was also super quirky and reminded me a lot of skinny-dip london which you can purchase at most Topshop stores - such a dream set of bags and accessories!
