9 Things We Learnt From London Fashion Week

Text by Wyanet Vaz

What you should keep in mind when the warm weather returns

1. If it’s not on Snapchat, it’s not cool enough.
If you thought you were the only one killing it on Snapchat, Burberry just showed us how it should be done. Always ahead of the game, the technologically forward brand premiered their SS 2016 collection as part of Snapchat’s story that was viewed a day prior to their show. Well played, Burberry.

2. Squiggle, Squiggle, Squiggle!
One of the most talked about collections at LFW had to be JW Anderson’s. Putting Keith Haring’s prints to best use, you could spot squiggles on his ensembles. Sparking the trend of statement sleeves, and tiny-sized cup bras, he showed us why the 80s should be part of your summer list.

3. The rise and rise of Emilia Wickstead. 
Emilia Wickstead’s collection added the necessary amount of summer, and is touted to be one of her best collections to date. She looked to the 50s for inspiration and came out with flouncy silhouettes, and clothes in pastel shades. We also approve of the ample use of mustard.

4. Dogs may have got to the moon, but ponies come to runways.
Emma Hill showcased her new line of bags under the label Hill and Friends over breakfast at Claridge’s. Bellboys served up pretty pink handbags and a couple of ponies turned up to greet the crowd.

5. God made us funky.
Taking innovation to the next level, Anya Hindmarch showcased her collection in the form of a live kaleidoscope. There were mirrors, models and lust-worthy bags, making this entire presentation the highlight of LFW this season.

6. Move over, Kendall. 
Hot off the ramp is this Dominican model Lineisy Monteiro, who has been blazing fashion week. After modelling for Prada, we spotted her at almost all shows from Burberry to Topshop Unique.

7. Make-up is too mainsteam.
The beauty trend to keep in mind for summer is minimal make-up. As seen on the ramp, models were sent bare faced, but with a lip-stain to add the necessary zing.

8. Look to your highlighters for inspiration.
This summer, go bold or go home. Skip the boring monotones, and find comfort in acid and neon hues. Christopher Kane’s collection is not for the faint-hearted, but also check out Osman for some style inspo.

9. Season of hardcore.
A dual trend was spotted that mixed the feminine vibe of the Victorian era with contemporary punk rock. We mean lace and flouncy silhouettes were teamed with a black colour palette and bold cut-outs. It’s going to be a tough summer, boys!
