London Fashion Week is in full swing.
Here are three of our favourite shows so far:
1. Burberry Prorsum
Christopher Bailey’s show was, unsurprisingly, a star-studded event. A-listers and top models were spotted admiring the military-inspired collection. Think black coats with gold buttons and exquisite detailing over mini-dresses or romantic silk ensembles. We loved the adapted classic Burberry trench coat which had a mesh middle and macrame lace on the sides.
Among the guests at the venue were British style icons Sienna Miller and Kate Moss. It also happened to be model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne’s first show of the season. Representing Hong Kong was singer Miriam Yeung.
The best part? The collection was immediately available at Burberry.com
2. J. W. Anderson
J. W. Anderson took us on a journey through time at his London Fashion Week catwalk. The designer presented a monochromatic collection accessorised with lots of volume.
The collection took us back to Renaissance times with the blousy shoulders and then to the ’30s with muted flirty ruffles, while the ribbed knits transported us to the ’70s. It might sound like a cacophony – but in true Anderson style, he made it work.
3. Simone Rocha
Simone Rocha certainly made a statement. The designer proved she’s definitely one to keep an eye on as she presented her romantic S/S 16 collection. Her pieces were an ode to texture – she incorporated unassuming textures such as ropes, bindings and plastic cords and transformed them into visual masterpieces.
