London Fashion Week is known for all its boldness and controversies generated around the shows. Many designers started their careers at this event shortly after leaving fashion colleges and, therefore, the week is always full of new talents and a lot of innovation.
Therefore, the fashion of the English capital this week brings a lot of empowerment and dialogues between fashion and politics. Many creations, like Tommy’s, brought biotypes that we don’t usually find on the catwalks and a production totally thought about sustainability. In addition, street style is super present and inspires us to adhere to that look well and stay all urban!
Empowerment and sustainability
Tommy rocked bringing to his casting of models people from all over the world, including the Brazilian Alessandra Ambrosio, the British Naomi Campbell and the Muslim Halima Aden.
Another point is the inclusion of people outside the aesthetic standards imposed by society. After all, not everyone is the same, right my people?
To also think about fashion through a political stance, the theme of the environment was part of the highlights of the Tommy fashion show. In partnership with Lewis Hamilton and HER, the looks are all made from the ideals of conscious fashion. That is, 75% of the pieces are made from 100% organic cotton. In addition, the parts are no sex, and can be used by all genders.
There was also another very important moment in the Halpern fashion show. A model became unbalanced when wearing a platform heel, but a top model behind her helped her. She held it while another woman from the front row of the audience knelt to give that help, taking off the shoes of the model who almost fell and continuing the show. The attitude was applauded and everything went smoothly. Sorority, right?
Lots of volume at London Fashion Week!
The parades that marked with a lot of volume were Richard Malone, Roksanda, Halpern, Richard Quinn and JW Anderson. What draws the most attention is that here you can be very casual or dare messssssmo! There are combinations with more neutral, smooth colors and others that mix everything.
Highlight for this dress by JW Anderson that proposed a more basic volume, but brought a lot of shine. I think it really suits our moment, and it was time to use things so dull – it’s time to give that close glow!
The most beautiful dresses of London Fashion Week
Everyone knows that I love wearing dresses. So, I separated two highlights that most caught my attention: the scarf dress and the plaid mood. The first brings a whole new meaning to the piece and the second I just love it!
The scarf is a very practical and versatile piece, and that’s what this look means to me. You can use ~ beyond the neck ~ on the hat, bag, hair and even make a cropped top. JW Anderson rocked the dress made entirely of handkerchief.
The checkered mood is very present for the fall season. The brand that brought a lot was Burberry, with a lot of innovation. The details make all the difference and the idea is to dare with asymmetry in the cuts and prints and make a mix of patterns. Not afraid to mix it up, okay?
The best Street Style looks
In addition to the catwalks, what is always good to keep an eye on are the clothes worn on the city streets during fashion week: street style! The good thing is that the looks are much more accessible and “wearable”, so we are not just inspired and take the opportunity to use in our day-to-day.
What’s really catching on, which was also highlighted in NYFW’s street style, were the colorful clothes or statement colors! They give a much more cool and street look to the looks, in addition to giving a warmth to the look – what we want so much on cold days!
The animal print, for a change, is in everyone again! In London, the prints came from various types. Snake, zebra, alligator … There’s a little bit of everything!
The brown look is also on the rise to give that variety in black and white. It doesn’t bring so much color, but it gives that more earthy and super chic look.
Inspirations of makes colors and with crystals
In time, London didn’t let us down to inspire us for Carnival! Jokes aside, the colorful make-ups combined with floral prints were a success. Blue, green, yellow, purple and white outline the eyes and make everything more fun and out of the black outlined pattern.
Another inspiration is the make-up with ~ real ~ glued crystals. At the Halpern show some models arrived with synchronized stones in the curves of the eyes. The makeup is by Isamaya Ffrench and is certainly mesmerizing.
And then, love, how much inspiration with these bold, empowered and colorful parades! Okay, we love black, but a little color doesn’t hurt anyone 🙂 Tell us what you think in the comments and also read about the NYFW here.
