London Fashion Week is over and I’m really happy to have been able to see so many shows and presentations. Today’s post is about the shows that I’ve attended and all the trends that I spotted for the next autumn-winter.
Among all the shows I’ve seen I can not choose my favorite, the collections were all wonderful. During the fashion shows I`ve always posted videos and photos on my Instagram Stories, but if you’ve missed them, I’ve also posted some videos on Instagram. (@olga_federico)
But let’s start to talk about the shows I attended:
The first fashion show I’ve attended was PPQ. The title of this show is it’s all black and white, a theme noticeable even by the invitation. In fact, the show has a predominance of these two colors. The color simplicity is offset by contrasts in the shapes, with maxi skirts that reach to the floor, and the predominance of stripes and plaid prints.
-Black and white
-Stripes and plaid prints
-Sporty chic (sneakers worn with maxi skirts)
-Velevet, fur and feathers
-High neck tops
Natasa Cagalj, designer di Ports 1961 ha deciso quest’anno di trasferire la sfilata da Milano a Londra e ció le ha permesso di sperimentare di piu con i tessuti scelti che si ispirano all’interior design. I materiali infatti sono quelli utilizzati anche in casa, quindi tappeti marocchini diventano off shoulder dress e abiti svolazzanti sono realizzati con i tessuti delle tende.
Katie Ann Mcguigan
Katie Ann Mcguigan is an emerging designer and winner of the prestigious Merit Award by Fashion Scout. Her collection is super colorful with a strong use of layering and geometric prints. This use of layers and oversized shapes does not weigh down the figure that remains feminine and modern.
For his collection Han Wen takes inspiration from the female gangsters of the novel A Clockwork Orange and the result is a powerful and innovative fashion show. Most of the outfits has an oversized leather jacket with silver chains and lace-up details. The jackets are often paired with satin maxi skirt and flared trousers creating an elegant look but androgynous and rebellious at the same time
