After the whirlwind that was New York Fashion Week, it’s now time to focus on London Fashion Week and see what these shows have to offer!
I’ve featured this designer before in my SS18 London Fashion Week post. Wakeley’s designs this season seem to focus on long silhouettes with floor length dresses and trench coats that end past the knee. Her color scheme was mostly black and red with small pops of other hues, such as lilac and white.
Aksu’s design concept for this collection was very intriguing to me. He used Margaret Ann Bulkley as inspiration because of her story of becoming a famous surgeon by living as a man in her daily life. From this, he created designs that fused androgynous looks with feminine, romantic details.
PETER PILOTTO // DESIGNERS: PETER PILOTTO AND CHRISTOPHER DE VOS
Pilotto and Vos had quite an interesting collection with a variety of colors and cuts in their pieces. There were more pantsuits, as well as dresses that had a 70s feel to them. Overall, it still kept a luxurious feel even amongst the heavy prints with the use of shiny, satin fabrics.
ERDEM // DESIGNER: ERDEM MORALIOGLU
Just as other designers seem to have been inspired by specific people, this collection was influenced by Fred Astaire’s sister, Adele Astaire. As a performer turned aristocratic wife, Moralioglu imagined the transition from shimmery, glitzy dresses to more conservative outfits that might have a touch of her husband in it.
Floral prints and Victorian-style dresses dominated the collection, as well as a polka dot motif that repeated as a see-through layer on the dresses, as hosiery, or as a veil over the face.
That wraps it up for my London Fashion Week coverage! There were so many more designers that I wanted to write about, but to be quite honest, I’ve been struggling to keep up with all the shows. This is the second time I’ve attempted to cover every fashion week (I covered SS18 fashion weeks here, here, and here!) and I guess I need to prepare better for these posts.
Nonetheless, I hope you enjoyed this and I’ll see you lovelies soon!
