Favourite Looks From London Fashion Week


Our favourite looks from London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week has been and gone, but what did it teach us? Maxi dresses retailer, QUIZ, rounds up its favourite looks from the catwalks.

Burberry

Fashion Week Day Two saw a rainbow of colour across the catwalk. Fusing stand-out shades onto contemporary casualwear, Burberry retained its image as a forward-thinking, urban brand.
The collection was defined by sweatshirts in blush-pink, bold scarlet jackets and chunky lemon jumpers, complemented by floral mesh detailing and rainbow sparkles. This was creative director Christopher Bailey’s final show for Burberry, and he dedicated his last collection to: “the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ rights around the world”. Once most famous for its traditional beige checks and trench coats, Burberry’s intelligent use of colour and drive for hyper-modern streetwear and athleisure clothing has made it one of London Fashion Week’s standout shows.
To create a bright and beautiful look just like Burberry, incorporate multiple bold colours and prints into your wardrobe. Select contemporary athleisure styles — such as bomber jackets and oversized sweatshirts — and never shy away from check prints and the streamlined silhouette of a vintage trench coat.

Simone Rocha

Contrasting with Burberry but also taking place on Day Two of London Fashion Week was Simone Rocha’s almost haunting collection. Setting the mood with flickering candles in chandeliers, Rocha stepped out of her black-lace-dress comfort zone and into a world of historic grandeur.
Models wore long dresses complete with satin bows, elegant ruches and patterned tulle, bringing the Edwardian era to AW18. But you’d be way off the mark if you thought Rocha brought only early 19th-century designs to the catwalk. The most impressive aspect of Rocha’s pieces was the flawless transition to styles from across the centuries. Alongside the embroidered traditional outfits, we saw 1980s-style power suits and 1970s-inspired, punky tartan outfits. Designer, Simone Rocha, said: “I have double breasted jackets and blazers, layered with dresses with the Edwardian scoop neckline."
The collection epitomised how multiple eras can combine to create a contemporary look for today. Rocha is a master of luxury layering, so blend Victoriana collars under gothic leather jackets and voluminous tulle skirts over platform shoes to encapsulate the look of multi-era femininity.

Michael Halpern

The catwalk was transformed with glitter and sequins as models for Michael Halpern’s collection took to the catwalk.
A fun-loving 70s vibe was present throughout the show and indeed collection. Huge hoop earrings, zebra-print boots under shimmery red coats, and bare-shoulder tops over half-and-half technicolour trousers signalled a leap towards confident 1970s fashion in 2018. Not only did Halpern wow the audience with Studio-54 designs, but he also showcased the importance of body-flattering cuts. Think thigh-skimming sequin dresses, figure-fitted retro jumpsuits, uber-high platforms, and disco-ball colours and you have Halpern’s 1970s glamour trend down.
Overall, the colourful collection worked to inspire hope and optimism, and certainly left a lasting impression.

Christopher Kane

Vampy, seduction-inspired designs populated the Christopher Kane catwalk show on Day Four of the event. It featured red lace dresses, black leather accents and diamante-fringed mini dresses amongst others.
Chic and carefree is perhaps the best way to summarise Christopher Kane’s collection. In fact, it is perfectly encapsulated in the slogan one model wore on her jumper: “More Joy”. “I have never shied away from sex in the collections — and this is no different,” said the designer.
To channel this fun-loving spirit, incorporate sparkling jewels, sheer lace and faux-fur trims into your wardrobe.

Roksanda

Strong silhouettes defined the Roksanda AW18 collection, as emphasis was placed on showcasing the female body shape.
Inspiration was taken from performance artist, Caroline Denervaud, which gave rise to the figure-holding collection that remained regardless of movement. Colour-wise, the collection was awash with blues, pinks, yellows, and oranges.
Silk wrap tops, mesh skirts and trouser suits all featured in the collection. Floaty silhouettes reigned supreme, allowing for a more fluid outline and creating an undulating figure that all women can enjoy. Silk and satin were prominent fabrics in the Roksanda collection, while high-necklines and ankle-length hems were also important to the aesthetic of the catwalk.
To channel the Roksanda AW18 vibe, choose unfitted, romantic silhouettes. Wrap your body in loose, silk shirts and culottes finished with a long coat or add mystery to your figure with tulle dresses, balloon-sleeve blouses and wrap-around cardigans.
Which of these trends will you be adding to your wardrobe next?
