London is the opposite of New York when it comes to runway trends. Resident designers refuse to play safe daring with colours, patterns and shape.
This makes it harder to pinpoint a handful of trends when there’s so much variety coming from London Fashion Week. That said, I’ve highlighted a few key trends that kept popping up on the runways.
Designers were less inclined to use primary colours (different than their American counterparts) and more interested in different patterns that could be defined as a patchwork of vintage curtains or wallpapers. Lots of times showing up on a duvet-like outfit. Yes, people will still be longing for comfort and a full Scandi experience next winter. And, although there’s still a lot of ivory and cream colours, London proves that hygge can be achieved in bright colours.
But it’s not all ‘Netflix and Chill’ for the British capital. Just like the release of Trainspotting 2, designers are looking back on the heydays of clubbing nightlife in the city. From J.W. Anderson, Natasha Zinko and even the lady-brand Emilia Wickstead betted on the comeback of the bare stomach. Was everyone in attendance to ‘The Vulgar'” exhibition at the Barbican?
