1. Julien Macdonald – Kicking off the fashion festivities on Old Burlington Street, Julien Macdonald’s show brought an abundance of glamour to the menswear tailoring district of
Savile Row. The show offered a stark juxtaposition between the severe cropped hairstyles of the models with the fluid and sexual lines of the illusionary gowns.
2. Matthew Williamson – This year marks the 15TH Anniversary of the brand so it is only fitting that the collection celebrates all that it is known best for today. Williamson claimed that, “opposites work together,” which is evident from the trademark contrasting use of azure blue with vibrant pink alongside the dip-dye approaches on classic single-breasted blazers.
3. J JS Lee – A modernist take on classic Womenswear tailoring, the collection exhibited this exactly with the blending of boyfriend-fit blazers styled with constructed and rectangular bottoms. The monochrome palette was interrupted with splashes of zesty green hues to again add to the contemporary edge. Overtly modern whilst also classically feminine.
4. Markus Lupfer – This collection exuberates that throw-on appeal which can essentially make or break a LFW show. Mint and metallic hues are accompanied by textured python prints on jersey classics. The pieces are unbelievably easy to wear without traversing into the realms of being boring; be sure to familiarise yourself with the collection!
5.DAKS – Sheila McKain-Waid began the catwalk show with a number of ethereal dresses in shades of brilliant white however, introduced subtle moments of colour to then eventually take the collection in a more dramatic direction of black tailored shirts and shorts. Despite the variety offered by the collection, it was held together with the feminine silk-blended materials.
