London Fashion Week Autumn Winter '15
Trend Round Up
|Over the knee boots by Ashish|
Yesterday was the start of Milan Fashion Week, which meant sadly we had to say goodbye to London and wait until September before we get our next installment of fashion frenzied stylsts, designers and bloggers. So to fill the next 6 month void I thought the best way to get prepared for the Autumn Winter season was to sum up London Fashion Week in a nutshell giving you the latest trends to look out for so you are ahead of the game come September.
It's safe to say the over the knee boot trend is here to stay for another season, and I can't be more happier. The only difference is that the heels on them have become chunkier much like the style of the pumps and ankle boots for AW15. Chunkier heels are always easier to walk in and have featured in a great deal of the runway shows.
Another trend I'm glad is here to stay are flats and the flat platform as I like to call them. Pointed toe flats dominated most of the runway shows during LFW. An alternative that were also featured were the flat platforms which add a little extra height, that are pretty easy to walk in and still just as comfy as normal flats.
As for heels, the chunkier the better seemed to be the trend, lots of rope tie ups, or pumps with ankle straps but as most of the deisgners were showcasing their Autumn Winter lines the focus understandably were on ankle boots and thigh high boots.
General Trends included;
Fur - the more the merrier and in either pastel hues or extremely bright colours. (Michael Kors, Prabal Gurang, Jason Wu, Topshop Unique)
Feathers - either as an accessory or a statement piece (Alice and Oliva, Marchesa)
Embellishment - because who doesn't like a bit of sparkle? (Reem Acra, Emilia Wicksted & Preen)
Pink and Orange - not necessarily together but independently in either pale pastels or a hue that packs a punch, basically a good pop of colour to accent some of the darker colours that are usually seen in the Autumn Winter Seasons. (J.Crew, Victoria Beckham, Amanda Wakely, Marchesa, Kate Spade and Holly Fulton)
Fringe – On anything possible, shoes, hemlines, scarves, handbags, you name it fringe it!
