Moving quickly along from NYFW, we’re now ready to see what the Brittish designers have on offer for Spring Summer 2017. Fashion month is no joke, and we love looking to designers to guide us on what’s going to be huge (like Simone Rocha’s sleeves and House of Holland’s sequins) this summer.
What’s not to love when androgyny, oversized buttons and various shades of blue come together. Eudon Choi‘s garments focused on creating angled shapes and silhouettes, with the occasional strap and slit.
House of Holland went big: big sequins, big printed check, big ruffles and big on contrast prints. Also, we’re all about those multi-coloured gingham lace up heels.
When soft, asymmetric drapery meets ombre printed fabrics done tactfully, beautiful things happen. J.W Anderson also added one earring per girl, because asymmetry is that good.
Our favourite prints princess, Mary Kataranzou had prints of all kinds: pyschadelic, optical illusions and quirky cartoon-like prints.
There is no one who knows tulle like Molly Goddard. For Spring Summer 2017, she says tulle can be done in sports-luxe way, simply add luminous orange and tennis ball green, drawstrings and unexpected cut outs.
Simone Rocha‘s dark and moody collection had mismtahced sleeves, and even mismatched fronts on dresses, with an emphasis on incredible sheer fabrics, such as lace.
Romanticising an English summer, Erdem showed beautiful draped sheer jumpsuits, two-piece suits tied with big bows and the softest dresses, adorned with ruffles or cuffs.
MM6 by Maison Martin Margiela was an installation of manequins wearing oversized shirts, ripped denim and painted raincoats.
Tactile silks in moody blues, muted salmon-pink and gilded yellow in slinky jumpsuits and ruched dresses gave Roksanda’s show a dreamlike ambience.
Combining accessible fashion with the runway, Topshop Unique’s show is always interesting take on current trends, with oversized denim jackets, cropped sweatshirts and bright yellow pencil skirts predicted for Spring Summer ’17.
Taking a walk through a summer garden is what seeing Paul Smith‘s show is like. There were suits in dusty pinks and oranges, and delicately embroidered flower prints.
Christopher Kane can (almost) do no wrong, as he paired metallic pleated dresses, velvet knotted tops and layered tulle and mesh, with Crocs.
