London Fashion Week: Day five highlights

Junior fashion editor Graeme Moran picks his best bits from the final day of LFW.

Tuesday was the turn of Rocha junior to take to the catwalk, with LFW stalwart John’s daughter Simone revealing her highly anticipated collection. Inspired by her grandmothers, Rocha’s girly style matured into pretty ladylike pieces, seen through the thoroughly modern eye of a designer on the rise. The simple dresses and neat jackets were the stars of the show, all featuring her signature use of offbeat fabrics – a pretty lace, a shaggy fur and a shiny patent.

Things felt almost younger and edgier this season at Roksanda Ilincic. Her trademark elegant dresses and lovely coats continued her covered up sexiness (there wasn’t a skirt above the knee and barely a flash of arm in the whole collection) but came in naughty wipe clean fabrics, followed by a somewhat casual cable knit dress and fun furry collars in a breezy palette of pink and minty green.

The fun and frivolity of past seasons was replaced with a somewhat subdued and slightly sinister vibe at Meadham Kirchhoff, in a collection made up almost entirely of black and white. And this was a Meadham Kirchhoff collection full of real clothes, with a Victoriana meets maid’s uniform style on strong coats featuring wipe-clean PVC panels, commercial little jackets, a lovely metallic skirt suit and velvet dresses with lace collars and cuffs.
