Top Trends: Fashion Week Roundup

It’s not exactly easy to keep up with Fashion Week, whether it’s London or New York, there’s always something new to see. So to help you along we’ve created a quick round up. This is Spring/Summer in nine trends…

Colour – It was wall to wall brights from Jonathan Saunders at LFW. The Scottish print master proved that orange, red, blue and purple are all set to be the new black.

Capes and shawls – Burberry made a statement with dramatic capes in their blanket-military crossover.

Victorian elegance – is here to stay, with bows and waterfall frills seen at Erdem.

Fur – is everywhere, and no longer limited to the confines of winter. Fluffy sandals were seen warming feet at both Topshop and House of Holland.

Flower Power – Tommy Hilfiger paid homage to Caribbean life; proving floral dresses will always remain a S/S staple at NYFW.

Star Gazing – Greek designer Mary Katrantzou brought cosmology to LFW with the catwalk filled with prints inspired by a galaxy far, far away. Lace at both Givenchy and Proenza Schouler, literally from head to toe thanks to Pat McGrath’s make up magic.

Off-the-shoulder – Feminine silhouettes have been dominating, both in London and New York, with classic pieces by the likes of Peter Pilotto and Natasha Zinko.

Print blocking – Call it clashing, call it complimenting, either way everyone from Emilia Wickstead to Duro Olowu were combining prints.

Netting – If you can see through it, it’s probably a Spring/ Summer winner. Simone Rocha and Burberry Prorsum impressed here.
