London Fashion Week 2016 Overview

Starting from September 16th until 20th London presented brands’ collections in the frame of Fashion Week. Our newspaper found all the memorable looks from this week. J.W.Anderson, Simone Rocha, Charlotte Olympia, Christopher Kane, and Marques Almeida got under our sight.

Launching menswear collections back in 2008, J.W.Anderson now designs for women. This season’s collection can confidently be considered as a sophisticated one with its belts, khaki color, boots below the knee, long sleeves, bright accessories and minimalist dresses. What caught attention most, were some looks made in the form of a collage.

In Simone Rocha’s collection colors ranged mainly between black, white, red and yellow – Autumn colors. In fact, the designer easily juxtaposed modern style and femininity in a single image. Regardless of the experiments with materials, their combinations were rather harmonious, she was able to create the shape of a woman with a simple belt around the model’s waist. Asymmetry of the image was also a key point of the show.

“I based it on Technicolor movies from the ‘40s, like Carmen Miranda’s, whom I have always loved,” Charlotte Olympia said for Vogue Magazine. One of the memorable appearances on the catwalk can be given to Charlotte Olympia with her representation of 40s fashion with an entertaining delivery of the clothes. In the beginning, we saw exotic accessories in the form of pineapples and birds, then models walked out wearing fruit costumes, which looked very strange. However, this is what makes fashion interesting and fascinating, we see people’s perspective and the outcome of their inspiration in the form of collections.

Christopher Kane’s collection is what I call ‘experimenting’ on the looks. He did tremendous work on the details, so that only after looking closely into the collection, we notice the combination of rubber shoes with a leopard look and iron rings that serve as a common thread connecting fabric scraps, thus creating a single product. Let’s not forget about another trend, accordion skirts presented asymmetrically.

Last but not least, one of the most colorful and fresh collections of LFW, Marques Almeida. If you read the previous article about trends then you should know that the brocade presented in Marques Almeida’s collection is also a fall trend. Moreover, not only the brocade jackets caught our attention, but also denim boots above the knee, which resemble a collection made from Manolo Blahnik’s collaboration with Rihanna, nightgowns, stripes, and shoes that are similar to the triceratops’s bone collar.
