London Fashion Week Favourites SS17

by - Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Bet you thought I was all about that second-hand hype didn’t ya? Well, you’re obviously not wrong, but it has to be said that a very special piece of my heart belongs to London Fashion Week.

While I haven’t quite made it to the cobbles myself yet (are there even still cobbles now the site has moved?), as always I have loved devouring the shows from the comfort of our own sofa and have picked out a myriad of favourite looks from this season. Whittling it down to just five, here are my five top collections that showed in London a few weeks back...

Mary Katrantzou

Eye-wateringly complex fabrics mixed with anakara-prints made for an electic look at Mary Katrantzou, indicative of a ‘more is more’ approach that has been creeping into fashion over recent years. I'm not sure we’d be brave enough to rock the whole look ourselves, but I am pretty into that pinafore dress.

Markus Lupfer
Comfy layers meets cutesy bunnies… Markus Lupfer stepped right into our 90s slumber parties for an interesting take on the ‘pyjamas as daywear’ look that’s been sweeping high fashion. Straight from the bedroom to the office – now this is some easy dressing I can get behind!

Sadie Williams
Behold all things 80s! Chock-full of Kid’s-TV presenter worthy colours and tactile embellishments, this is the collection that i'd be waving my money at if I was a buyer. Proof that the primary palette is definitely back in – geometric shapes and lots of black bring a high fashion edge to these play school shades to create something fun but still grown-up.

H! by Henry Holland
Do we ever not love Henry Holland? Honouring his tenth anniversary by bringing back his now-classic slogan tees, we’re loving the nod to supermodels old and new in kitschy combos. ‘Let’s breed, Bella Hadid?’ Genius.

Topshop Unique
Topshop Unique felt very 80s power mom this season – whether dressed down in oversized denim and florals at home or vamped up in animal print for the office, the power play of the two different sides of woman felt clear and ultimately very wearable. Good news considering the fact that this is one of the few collections suitable for a less-than-decadent budget. Set us aside some zebra print – everyone knows that leopard is soooo last season.
