London Fashion Week is always a time to celebrate the brilliant creativity of the British fashion industry. The five days show always brings distinctive, avant-garde looks, but that does not mean that you can't find a few trends, even within the most individual designers’ collections.
From bows to hip details and all things red, keep scrolling for the most hot trends we’ve put together after watching on the Autumn/Winter 2023 runways of London Fashion Week.
The simple dress
‘Clean girl’ aesthetic has been around for a couple of years now and after watching these collections, we can definitely say that it’s here to stay! From Tove to Eudon Choi to Christopher Kane, there were a bunch of simple but elevated styles.
All Things Black
This season’s catwalks were a real love letter to the colour black all the things that happen in the shadows. Erdem, David Koma and Bora Aksu certainly embraced latex-lathered collections with thigh-high boots, bra tops, safety pins holding together teeny skirts and gaping tops. A real homage to Wednesday Adams and Jenna Ortega’s 2022 representation of it!
Bows & Knots
From Simone Rocha to Yuhan Wang and Susan Fang, bows have been the feminine touch of choice for many designers this season. Simone Rocha lent into this theme quite heavily, sending models down the runway with bows in their hair and across their faces. We can’t wait to see how this trend will spread down to highstreet!
All Things Red
A key trend in the spring/summer 2023 collections, we'll now be wearing this colour well into 2024, preferably head-to-toe, as dictated by David Koma, Nensi Dojaca Eudon Choi, and Bora Aksu.
This season, designers have tapped into the desire to look professional, with many building their collections upon tailoring and the foundations of office wear, but much more elevated. Blazers with intricate clasps, suiting with spliced hems, and dresses layered with cutout knits were just some of the outfits we'd like to buy for our Monday to Friday!
Although these five trends have taken our breath away during the London Fashion Week, we also think there’s a few others that are worth a mention: From voluminous tulle detailing to feather hips add-ons and a funnier take on animal print, we’ve seen a lot of ‘out there’ trends and ideas take over the catwalks. We truly can’t wait to see how some of these will spread down to premium brands and our wardrobes!
Let us know what trend you’ll be jumping on to straight away in the comments.
