LFW 2017 Favourites

As an avid fashion fan, London Fashion Week is always a key date for my diary. From the 14th - 19th September 2017, London Fashion Week took place and it looked absolutely INCREDIBLE as the shows displayed the Spring/Summer 2018 collections. In this post I will be sharing some of my favourite looks from LFW 2017 and explaining why they caught my eye.

This collection particularly caught my attention because of the interesting patterns that were used on the fabrics. There were polka dots, pinstripes and chevrons appearing from left right and centre, immediately drawing the eye in. 

I absolutely fell in love with the shape of this dress from the off. The high neckline creates a very modern twist to an otherwise very feminine, delicate dress. I also notice that the use of a stripy fabric also contrasts beautifully with the long flow of the maxi skirt, giving a very 'cutting edge' approach to a floor length skirt.

This look is so mesmerising is many different aspects. First of all, the garment itself is unique and fresh due to its 3-tiered A-line shape, not to mention the geometric pattern circling the hems and the main body. Again, a higher neckline is appearing here, with the mesh straps giving a modern twist to a more old-fashioned style. I also love the use of a monochrome palette as I do think adding colour would lure the attention away from the unique shape and materials used.

This collection embodies a beautifully crafted modernity with interesting, abstract cut outs and structured ruffles. The use of a very simple colour palette gives a very 'Piet Mondrian' feel, which further supports the idea of modern abstractionism.

Capturing a modern elegance, this look includes delicate lace, beautifully structured ruffle sleeves and black boning. Having the little strips of black contrasts well with the daintiness of the white material, almost giving a sporty feel to the trousers as they mimic the stripes down jogging bottoms. In my mind, this outfit is a juxtaposition of many different styles and occasions, which are fashioned together in with a very current way.

Like a piece of artwork, this dress involves technique, shape and of course, beautiful colour. The flow of the structured ruffle that entwines around the torso leads the eye in an interesting direction around the dress. Lace detailing adorning the left shoulder removes the symmetry from the dress; another abstract idea. When I look at this dress I can't help but picture the spectacular technique that has been used to create the statement ruffle; it truly is a work of art.

Temperley London

Vivid colours and beautiful embellishments were definitely at the forefront of Temperley London's S/S18 collection. I also noticed that low, plunge V neck lines made recurring appearances, hinting that these may be the new 'thing' next summer!

Iridescent sequins, an elegant V neck and a maxi dress...whats not to love about this look!? An elegant floor length dress has been made fun and youthful with these colourful sequins, something that is definitely extremely difficult to pull off! A simple belt adds definition to the shape of the waist, however, the sleeves and the skirt are both shapeless and therefore present a relaxed appearance.

The V neck makes another appearance here, however, it is slightly off centre, which leads the eye in a diagonal direction down the skirt. A dipped hemline with a ruffled edge demonstrates a causal effect, however, the use of a very busy and colourful fabric adds interest and engages the eye in a more formal way. Again, the sleeves are shapeless, mimicking a small cape; perhaps this is what we will be seeing a lot more in the coming summer months.
