There’s just something about British fashion that has always resonated with me. Maybe it’s the simplicity behind it, or its lady-like demeanor. As expected, this season of London Fashion Week did not disappoint. Here are my favourite collections for fall/winter 2017!
The best way to describe Alice Temperley’s fall 2017 collection? High-volume prettiness. Think floral prints, embroidery and silk jacquards. Dainty quilted dresses and skirts were often paired with long cardigans or cable-knit sweaters, offering a grounded touch.
Toronto-based designer Sid Neigum presented his fall collection in London this year with a line that expressed escapism. Black and white looks were accented with burnished gold velvet that were done in serene drapery, wrapped shapes and sharply defined silhouettes.
For fall, Victoria Beckham’s love for menswear-inspired tailoring was on full display with a laid-back attitude. She perfected the cut of baggy pleated pants this season, which sat high at the hip with a forgiving line. Turtlenecks had a nice heft and structure to them, and the palette was much moodier with splashes of optimistic colours like pepto pink.
Burberry’s crisp, clean color palette of white and black really allowed the details to shine, from the architectural cut of the clothes to the lushness of knits and sheers alike. Red and blue sailor stripes, as well as occasional abstract prints broke up the monochromatic looks while doses of colour were brought in through the bags.
