This week, London took centre stage as Fashion Week hit the capital city. Whilst the British followed in the footsteps of New York’s runways, the outfits on display were an altogether cooler affair! From sheer mesh to regal looks, block brights to shades of Kelly Green, there were a host of styles we want to wear now!
Read on as we give you a behind the scenes snapshot of the top trends that walked the catwalk.
Keeping It Kelly
The colour of the season was clear – Kelly Green! An intense shade that sits between blue and yellow in the colour wheel, named after the common Irish family name and reminiscent of the lush green Irish landscape. Seen at Supriya Lele where wrap dresses, skirts and opaque cut out trousers featured this eye-popping shade, alongside the runways of Rejina Pyo who created a beautiful colour combination by pairing this hue with bright orange and earthy brown tones. If you want to rock the shade of the season ahead of time, then go custom! Our bespoke Pia Gown is available in the perfect shade of Kelly Green. Wear with layered gold jewellery and simple sandals whilst the sun is still shining, or switch to a pair of black courts for when the winter feel sets in.
After over a year of restrictions, British designers were in the mood for making a statement. Never a look for wallflowers, the runways were awash with sheer fabrics that showed off a seductive side. Maximilian Davis rocked unapologetic sex appeal with see-through fabrics and cut outs. Lele modernised fitted pencil skirts with transparent fabrics, meanwhile Molly Goddard delivered delicate sheer fabrics with a more whimsy and theatrical feel. We adore a cut-out - check out our Fen and Stella Gown for a masterclass in how to subtly show off some skin. Want to go sheer but keep it wearable? Our Michelle top with its sweater style and organza inspired sheer sleeves are perfect for the new season.
Nightdresses As Outerwear
Simone Rocha showcased blown-up negligées and nightdresses along with “bed jackets” to give the effect of “falling out of bed and taking the sheets with you”. Likewise, Molly Goddard delivered smocks that had a distinctly nightdress vibe. We’re all about nightwear as everyday wear and our Emma Silk collection is a must for those who can’t let go of comfy but still want a healthy dose of chic. Try the matching Papaver set paired with white sneakers or metallic sandals or layer up the Cassia nighty with the matching dressing gown for a more runway worthy look. Slick your hair back with a centre parting and go for a bold lip to avoid looking like you literally rolled out of bed.
Ruffle Some Feathers
Fabrics with regal grandeur reigned the runways at Richard Malone, where jewel tones were draped, ruched and ruffled over models’ bodies, whilst Richard Quinn followed suit, showing head-to-toe looks that gathered at the waist and ruched outwards to accentuate curves in candy shop hues. We love a ruffle and for those who want a wearable take, our Gabriella Dress is the perfect touch of texture. Wear with barely there stilettos for the warmer season or pair with knee high boots for a winter take.
Bold & Beautiful
Following in the footsteps of the American shows, colour pop brights were seen across the catwalks with a vibrant and cheerful attitude. Richard Quinn had one of the most star-studded FROW’s with the likes of Kate Moss sat centre stage to watch her daughter, Lila Grace walk. The fire truck red jumpsuit Lila wore caught the eye instantly and you can replicate with our Suzanne Jumpsuit. Emilia Wickstead offered up a flurry of juicy colours, while Molly Goddard delivered Neon vibes. For an easier wear, our Janine Dress is the perfect sunny hue to add some warmth to your wardrobe ahead of the new season.
With so many playful trends to tap in to, there’s no need to wait! Get the look now and get ahead.
