Here’s What You Missed At London Fashion Week

As London Fashion Week draws to a close, we call out the key looks and themes coming off the catwalk. Menswear had slightly less visibility on the women’s runway compared with the New York shows, but the trend in mixed gender shows is growing in popularity.

DECONSTRUCTED TAILORING

With a minimal aesthetic, the shirt trend from previous seasons moves into all aspects of tailoring with a deconstructed twist.

GOTH

Black, black, and more black was huge in the London shows. A gothic undertone brought a strong sense of glamour with satin, PVC, and lace being key fabrics.

METALLIC

Metallic tones are always a popular option (particularly for winter) but stronger levels of color are growing in momentum. Hot pink and bright orange inject newness into the metal inspired fabrics.

SHEER

See through and peek-a-boo styling is one of the newest looks from the catwalk. Although sheer dressing is a stronger look from the women’s shows, Burberry displayed some strong inspiration for transparent layering for the men’s market.

SUGAR SWEET

Sweet and sickly hues remained a key influencer for color palettes. Icy pink, coral, and satsuma orange work in perfect harmony within tailoring, dresses, and minimalist sportswear.

RELAXED BUT SMART

Double-breasted jackets and relaxed blazers take on a slightly longer length that give a nod to oversized dressing. A tasteful color palette of aqua, bottle green, and kingfisher blue work perfectly with dove gray and soft peach for a soft summer suit story.
