Ready to Wear – London Fashion Week

If you think the whole series of big four fashion weeks have ended with New York last month – we could say that you’re right, and also wrong. Right, because the men’s fashion weeks did end with NYC, along with their ready-to- wear shows. But, wrong, because the ready-to-wears on the three European cities have just started. Which means, if we learned anything from New York, there will be a bunch of co-ed shows, where brands showcased both women and men’s collection in one show.

Thus, since we just wanted to be thorough, we shall start with London.

Big Words

Plastering visible letters front and center on your outfit could make you stand out – at least attention grabbing. Some brands took this approach. From their own names, quotes, or just letters scattered. All with great said effects.

The Clash of the Patterns

Another bold mix and matches comes in combining more than one patterns in one item – mostly fall/winter’s cold bearing outers. The combo exceeds to fabrics as well, making these pieces more exceptional.

Mod Squad

Eventhough not entirely Angus Young or “Umbrella Academy” look, but the classic schoolboy look has been reinterpreted this season. Its fundamental elements were present; the tie, the jacket or coat and the cap.

Saville Rows

Again we’re going to repeat this: what’s a London fashion event without the suits. Any true and reasonable gentleman would opt this over puffer jackets or oversized coats anytime this season.

Surprisingly, in the most gloomy metropolis in the world (especially during the fall), many opted white as the color of the season. If you think that green from LMFW suits the season better, we think you’re not adventurous enough.
