London Fashion Week Round Up

London Fashion Week Round Upsplit line

What’s not to love about London Fashion Week?  The anticipation, the shows, the beautiful models and the amazing new clothes.

We’ve had a good look at some of the trends emerging for Autumn Winter 17 to bring you some inspiration.


American Pioneer

This look blends the pioneer spirit with a modern approach to mixing fabrics.  Think Sissy Spacek in Badlands mixed with Brokeback Mountain and you’ll get the idea.

Ashley Williams AW17 (British Fashion Council, Sam Wilson), Ashley Williams AW17 (Nigel Pacquette, British Fashion Council), Faustine Steinmetz aw17, Presentation (British Fashion Council, Zoe Lower), House of Holland AW17, Backstage (British Fashion Council, Sam Wilson).

Vintage Doll

A very feminine yet slightly distressed look à la Miss Haversham.  Fabrics are floaty with delicate prints and the trend for ruffles and pleats looks to be continuing.

Bora Aksu AW17, Backstage (British Fashion Council, Lillie Eiger), Emilio De La Morena AW17, Backstage (British Fashion Council, Eeva Rinne), Erdem Aw17 Backstage (British Fashion Council, Shaun James Cox), Mary Katrantzou AW17 Backstage (British Fashion Council, Sam Wilson), Steven Tai AW17 (British Fashion Council, Zoe Lower), Xiao Li AW17, Presentation (British Fashion Council, Lillie Eiger).

Post-Apocalyptic Classics

Imagine the height of tailoring and classic style, oversized with ingenious styling and details.  This trend is quite stark yet very wearable.

Antonio Berardi AW17, FOH (British Fashion Council, Nigel Pacquette), Edeline Lee AW17, Presentation (British Fashion Council, Eeva Rinne), Eudon Choi AW17 (British Fashion Council, Shuan James Cox), Palmer Harding AW17, Presentation (British Fashion Council, Shaun James Cox), Phoebe English aw17 Presentation (British Fashion Council, Zoe Lower), Preen by Thornton Bregazzi AW17 (British Fashion Council, Vic Lentagne). 

1970s Revival

Or it could be early 1980s revival, the jury is still out.  Safe to say this is a fun, fast and exciting trend with lots of bold colour and a fair few sequins. 

Ashish AW17, Backstage (British Fashion Council, Vic Lentaigne), Fyodor Golan AW17 (British Fashion Council, Paul Trengove), Marques' Almeida AW17, Backstage (British Fashion Council, Zoe Lower), Molly Goddard AW17, Backstage (British Fashion Council, Shaun James Cox), Ryan Lo AW17, Backstage (British Fashion Council, Vic Lentagne), Sadie Williams AW17 (British Fashion Council).

Blue is the colour

Across so many of the catwalk shows the colour blue was very much in evidence.  Slaith’s own Celestial shade perfectly captures this trend.  Not as harsh as the peacock blue from previous seasons but flattering to most skin tones.

Christopher Kane AW17, FOH (British Fashion Council, Charlie Wheeler), David Koma AW17 FOH (British Fashion Concil, JAB), Joseph AW17 FOH (British Fashion Council, Nigel Paccquette), Roksanda AW17 FOH (British Fashion Council, Charlie Wheeler), Roksanda AW17 FOH (British Fashion Council, Charlie Wheeler).
