The Fall 2017 London Fashion Week has began, and unlike New York, is a more conceptual and less “wearable” event. The pieces are, usually, more dramatic and exaggerated. In this post I will show the highlights of the 1st and 2nd day.
The minimalist architect Adolf Loos inspired Choi in his collection. Because of this, his collection featured voluminous and structured pieces. The colours followed from the shades of grey, white, blue, dark green and a soft orange. The tailoring has also appeared a lot in the show.
The brand introduced one of the most wearable collections of the first days of the London’s event. The main fabric was tailoring, which appeared in many patterns, mainly checkered. Dask presented tailored trousers with the hem folded and in cropped length. The main colour was grey, but navy blue and shades of lilac also appeared.
Volume. If I had to describe the Molly Goddard show, that would be the word. The collection had a childish and fairy tale air. Gigantic tulle dresses went down the catwalk. Some trousers could also be seen, but always accompanied by voluminous blouses. The collection was very colourful with pink, blue, green and red.
Wickstead presented a collection worthy of a princess, literally. Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is always wearing the brand. The collection used fine fabrics, like silk, and a lot of transparency, even in the trousers. The sleeves were the big highlight, always buffing and with details. It is an elegant and feminine collection, but with a modern touch.
The show of the stylist Simone Rocha start with a military air, with heavy coats in the colours brown and army green. As the show continued, the military tone lost force and became something more feminine, but without exaggerations. The collection featured many long coats, hit of the season, and flower applications and prints. The marked waist also appeared during all the show.
The first days of the London Fashion Week had exaggerated and only a few wearable collections, something already expected. Some trends we’ve already seen have been present, such as tailoring, marked waist and dramatic sleeves; and checkered appeared as a new hit. See you soon!
