How to Wear: Just Rock’n’Roll it ..
Future Florals House of Holland
Floral prints also seen at: Mulberry, Jonathan Saunders, Stella McCartney, Erdem
Floral prints, 3D blooms and pretty applique botanicals brought lawn borders to the catwalk this season. While some designers went classic with bold prints, others riffed on the theme. Mary Katrantzou’s jewel encrusted 3D posies and Christopher Kane’s phytotomy were a case in point.
How to wear: Team your neon florals and botanical blooms with edgy attitude and offbeat accessories, like metallic glam rock accessories, sky high sandals or chilled-out trainers. The two tribes within this trend are polar extremes – it’s either the lady-like treatment or sassy urbanite styling.
Pink Ladies by Burberry Prorosum
Also seen at: Prada, Stella McCartney, Victoria Beckham, Giles, Antonio Berardi
How to wear: Fashion’s fickle eye hasn’t quite moved on from pink. There’s still plenty of style mileage left in the hue that makes boys wink. Best worn as one hero-piece, such as a coat or jacket, or be shameless and wear pink head-to-toe. You go, girls!
Pleats Please Celine
As seen at: Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Gucci
Schoolgirl pleats were given a luxe upgrade at LFW with foiled finishes, ombre’d effects and premium fabrics making the look completely grown up.
How to wear: Go for tight pleats on dresses, skirts and accessories. The broader pleat is a thing of the past… Well, for now.
Frayed denim offered a hip update on jeans for Spring. Dresses, tops and skirts looked nonchalent and brought a hint of the street to the runways. The look also offered London’s cool girls a new season wardrobe for Spring.
Pretty pastels were pumped up this season with a striking palette of germolene, spearmint and Parma-violet. Head to toe and tonal combinations are the only way to go.
The Mullet Dress
All party at the front and business at the back, the lop-sided mullet dress has long been a favourite with Hollywood starlets looking to create drama on the red carpet. Antonio Berardi’s mis-matched skirt hems paired with sweaters show that the style is not just for blow out nights – it can also work for a modern take on cocktail dressing.
Hope you feel inspired to get some wicked vintage pieces of Harper & Lewis now – Spring is just by the cornet – GET READY
