What are the top trends from London Fashion Week?

In London, contrasting with the other fashion weeks, the trends are less present or at any rate less apparent. All the designers have very strong personalities, and they use the runway to express their creativity and convey a story through each article of clothing. Nonetheless, we can say that sheer effects are everywhere, namely in lightweight dresses made of tulle, muslin, lace… Like those that concluded the Unique Topshop show, those seen at Burberry or even at Kane, in particular the black dress interwoven with ropes…

Which designer created the biggest buzz?

There were two. The first is J.W. Anderson, who turns 30 this week and who delivered a surprising, very successful collection on Saturday on the former premises of Central St Martins. The second is Thomas Tait. He is the winner of the first LVMH Prize and his clothes are constructed in an incredible way…

Who are the new models to watch?

A clearly defined trend has yet to emerge, but Leona “Binx” Walton is a hit. Already very much on the scene in New York, she really came through in the top London shows.

Which show had the best atmosphere?

On one hand, the Burberry Prorsum show remains a must. Under that immense tent in Kensington Park, with live music — this time it was James Bay, sublime! — clothes you want to put on right away, celebrities including Kate Moss sitting in the front row… In short, the show always gives off a powerful emotion.

Also worth mentioning is Thomas Tait, once again. In an immense, sterile room, the audience was seated on tiny benches and the models walked between colored walls. An homage to the artist Georges Rousse, who inspired the designer.
