With London Fashion Week over for another season, there’s no better time than the present to round-up of all the action from Somerset House. As always, the exclusive designer collections were bursting with vitality, the street style looks were fiercely bold and as for the clothes themselves? Pure wow!
The season of hats and scarves may be upon us, but after seeing what’s hot for SS15; our minds are firmly set to fast forward. Let’s ogle the latest designer collections and dream of endless summer.
Matthew Williamson and House of Holland brought 1970’s flower power to the runway respectively. Jam packed with psychedelic bright pops, top to toe florals and printed shift dresses, the Henry Holland collection was complemented by runway models sporting thick, long tresses and glowing suntans.
Meanwhile, Matthew Williamson brought his own blossoming blooms in the form of chic, billowing gowns and hibiscus motif blazers. The collections showstopper was one glitter drenched dress complete with a feather hem and embroidered flowers. Outstanding.
Richard Nicoll proved that lilac hues and the holographic trend are here to stay with his illustrious collection which juxtaposed feminine pastels with simplistic sports luxe. Just when we thought it was impossible to look good at the gym…
And delicate, whimsical fashion wasn’t just reserved for Nicoll’s draped knits, fluid lines and calm colour palettes. London brand Sibling decided to take the whimsical movement in a new direction with their fairground inspired line of frou-frou skirts, loud prints and oversized bows. The colourways were bold and riotous confirming that experimentation and clashing prints will be all the rage come SS15.
If you’ve been reacting to all this talk of explosive colour and clashing prints with horror then fear not reader, there’s good news in store. The Marios Schwab show ensured that classic hues and silhouettes aren’t going anywhere. Stone white, strips of black and stainless steel grey ruled the roost with echoes of teal also in the mix.
Asymmetrical skirts, high waisted belts and shirts with exposed shoulders gave the conservative look a playful update. Meanwhile the Margaret Howell collection also honoured neutral colours in the form of grey, navy and taupe pleated skirts and pullovers.
Will you be embracing brights come spring or will you stick to neutral shades with the odd statement garnish? Whether it’s seventies style shift dresses or the holographic sports luxe trend which take your fancy, do let us know. Tweet us @Nica_Handbags or leave us a comment.
