Whilst we are still in the midst of winter and dreaming of summer London Fashion Week landed in the capital last week showcasing the new collections for Autumn/Winter 2014. Although it may be a little too soon for most of us to be thinking that far ahead it’s always good to get a sneak peek at the trends we’ll be wearing come autumn.
My favourite collections from LFW are below:
Prom Queen meets street wear is the only way to describe Ashish’s London Fashion Week offering. Playful textures were mixed with sporty vibes to create a glittering collection. Frayed denim added a dressed down element, whilst grey marl separates were combined with sequined trousers or embellished with oversized bows to update a staple wardrobe piece. The shoes were courtesy of a new Topshop collaboration coming soon to stores and they even featured light up platforms taking anyone born in the 90s right back to their childhoods – pretty cool right. This collection will no doubt inspire the high street when it comes to Christmas party wear and looking like a Princess is only ever a good thing at that time of year in my eyes.
Prints aplenty were the agena for the Tata Naka collection. Prints were clashed to add a playful feel and sporty bomber jackets were paired with ladylike skirts juxtaposing casual with formal. Muted seperates added calm to the collection with mustard yellows, azure blues and terracotta oranges tying the whole collection together.
Henry Holland never disappoints with his collections and was inspired by debauched debutantes for his latest show. Quality Street colours, sequins, shearling and wallpaper prints were featured throughout. Oh, and pom pom shoes. Lily Allen even wore one of the dresses to the 2014 Brit Awards this Wednesday proving it pays to be friends with the fashion elite. A super fun and wearable collection, fingers crossed some of it makes its way over to Henry’s H! by Henry Holland collection at Debenhams.
Burberry’s collection focused on antique inspired prints with an ethnic vibe. Prints were again clashed but in a more subtle way due to the earthy tonal colour palette. Monogrammed scarfs were featured throughout and belting over your scarf and jacket is going to be the new styling trick for Autumn/Winter.
