Floral and dragonfly motifs remained central in collection showcased at LFW by designers from Matthew Williamson to Mulbery, House of Holland, Eudon Choi, Mary Katranzou, and John Rocha. Cut outs twisted and shaped into flowers by Christopher blossomed on the range. Leather complemented the subtle base fabric at Mulberry, Burberry, Haizhen Wang, Daks. Use of Tailored lace, feathers, crochet, sequins by Peter Pilotto, House of Holland and Meadham Kirchoff and Tom Ford embellished the sheer fabrics in soft pastels.
Prints were everywhere at LFW, with floral, stripes and graphic prints being at the core. Frayed Edged fabrics by Christopher Kane’s and Topshop Unique’s rough edged boucle suit and Marios Schwab’s denim dress for laid back day wear carved a different direction of ease with simplicity.
