The future of London fashion on the international scene is more uncertain than ever and some avant-garde designers have presented collections with political accents, or expressing their societal and sustainable commitment as the unshakeable Vivienne Westwood. However, recently emerging talents such as Richard Quinn, Molly Goddard or Halpern confirm London’s passion for fashion. Discover the key points identified by Carlin Creative:
Gingham, lots of gingham, black and white exclusively. We are far from the little Bardot dress that irreparably devastated St Tropez; this season it is treated in chic and urban version, in a more tailoring perspective than beach life.
LITTLE CAPE AT FRONT
This is the detail in volume of the season, a small cape effect placed on the shoulders or the top of the bust, in one single piece or open at the throat. A way to give character to a minimalistic silhouette.
Under Victorian influence, the romance dear to London designers is tinged with blue. Focus on generous volumes and ruffles, swelling theatrical fullness worked in silks. With florals of course!
This is rather unusual for a London fashion week, but this season, the Greek goddess drapery is having a moment on the catlwalks. Spearhead of this trend, J.W Anderson builds his entire collection around a vestal silhouette, which resonates with several other designers.
The egg dress, we all looked forward to it, just to throw away our fitness routine and our mega-healthy food plans. This dress solves any silhouette problem while taking considerably inspiration from the brilliant Cristobal Balenciaga. Some more dessert?
