This is the first fashion week I haven’t been to in years – and it feels weird. I’ve been so busy with work and home lately that I couldn’t fit it into my schedule. My next dilemma, I didn’t want to leave fashion month out of my blogging schedule. For one, my blog started because of my love of fashion and seeing the collections twice a year. And two, I love British design and I wanted to continue to give them support.
That got me thinking about this post. Although I’m not there I know a bevvy of beautiful bloggers who have all been down to view the collections – I thought I’d give you a little round-up of their favourite shows and emerging trends!
“As far as trends go, I’d say both the resurgence of metal frames in eyewear and the reworking of the classic everyday items. I’ve always been a big fan of the humble shirt for some time but never thought to wear it differently until now!
I first saw it by Manrepeller but saw a lot of designers using the same techniques right the way through to next summer! Here’s my version of it for day 2 of LFW, I love that essentially I’m wearing a shirt and jeans, but the styling and orange accents keeps it quirky!”
“Out of the shows that I managed to attend, my favourite was categorically Ashish (although I also really enjoyed Ashley Williams and Clio Peppiatt). More generally I noticed (and loved) a lot of pink being used across the board in every shade going, and I also like anything with a logo or slogan for SS17.”
“I am, as always, a big fan of Topshop Unique and loved the ‘80s inspired cool-girl edge. My obsession with leopard print has now had a serious update thanks to the zebra print and hot pink hues that stylishly glided down the catwalk last Sunday. And now, thanks to the thrill and changing landscape of fashion, I am able to buy into this segment of spring now. Hurry up payday, where you at!
The deep V-neck trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere fast either, as Teatum Jones and Temperley proved, and this, I am very happy about – it’s my Saturday night go-to look. Last but not least I am pretty excited about gingham for spring, it’s such a fun and feminine fabric and oozes a fresh new season. I loved the styling at the House Of Holland show; frills, off-the-shoulder and massive gold hoops – it couldn’t be more me!”
