After New York, the season of Spring/Summer collections moves to England. The biggest highlights of fashion runways were the debut of Versus (a young brand by the Italian Versace) that brought a hot military tailoring and the return of Peter Jensen to the official calendar of London Fashion Week. Last but not least, the iconic (and very British) Burberry came with lots of transparency and black, a perfect combination between soft and gothic styles.
While in NFW we saw plenty of wearable and known trends, this second fashion week is a little bit more challenging. What we see on the runways is completely different from what we are used to, but it is interesting to see how the unusual turns out on the catwalk. At a first look you might thing they go totally against everything we know about fashion, but that’s exactly the fun part for us, young, smart and perky Collegiates: going out of our comfort zone and trying something new!
Check out the Top Trends!
There was a lot of geometric patterns on fall/winter 2014-15, and now, they came reformulated in color blocking. Either way that’s a trend to always look up to.
Roksanda, Ayna Hindmarch, Christopher Kane, Georgia Hardinge
Who’s not up to floral? From a girly look to a folk one, it fits pretty much every style. You just need to balance it with a clean combination.
Antonio Beraldi, Versus Versace, Mary Katrantzou , Simone Rocha
This trend is an awesome alternative from our much known strapless, but is equally hot and fun to wear it.
Mother of Pearl, Ryan Lo, Barbara Casasola, Temperley London
The frills, which are normally associated with a romantic outfit, appears in this season less girly and more modern.
Roksanda, Osman, Toga, Tog
Highlight in NYFM and MFW, this soft pink is definitely one of the biggest trends of this season!
Ashish, Burberry, Kristian Aadnevik, Topshop Unique
Just like NYFW, the tailoring is more oversized and comfortable than ever. This mix also adds force to the trend “no gender” that we saw on MFW.
Joseph, Barbara Casasola, Paul Smith
