The women’s round-up echoed the sentiments seen throughout LFW.
At Peter Pilotto, scuba diving influenced the collection, with bright red and sea-blue neoprene fabrics on jackets. At Aquascutum, cream was highlighted with canary yellow; cropped biker jackets and high-shine macs stood out. Michael van der Ham had the signature use of mix and match fabrics, as dresses casually draped off one shoulder in mint greens and coral shades. Holly Fulton focused on glamour with bright yellows, fringing and mirrored embellishment for a ‘Las Vegas goes to Margate’ theme. The brights continued at Ashish, which shone with all-over sequins on loose-fit dresses and trousers. At Nicole Farhi, a summer palette of citrus brights and pastels worked well in abstract florals and floral appliqué. Louise Gray showcased some great floral twin sets with extra military panels and zips. The tribalism continued at David Koma, with geometric metallic patterns and appliqué, including fringing on dresses with V-shaped panels. Tropical fruit-print dresses epitomised Issa London’s Rio de Janeiro-inspired range. Clements Ribeiro interpreted the floral trend into lightweight knits in soft blues and pinks, and at Kinder Aggugini all-over floral prints, floral panels and trims on hemlines all stood out. Mark Fast’s signature body-con knits were updated in tangerine and canary yellow, while Roksanda Ilincic’s sheath dresses also used the colour of the season, yellow, in addition to fuchsia and turquoise. Sass & Bide had its own take on the ethnic trend with heavily beaded sash trims on skirts and tops.
