London Fashion Week: Highlights from the final day

London Fashion Week drew to a close with shows from designers including Michael van der Ham, Christopher Raeburn and Emilio de la Morena.

Michael van der Ham is making a name for himself as a master of collage, and his autumn 15 collection was an exercise in what he does best. Skirts and dresses in sheer organza, appliquéd in lacy floral motifs, are sure to prove popular among his loyal fans, while an elegant grey wool coat embellished with the lightest touch of gold filigree might be the piece that attracts a new legion of customers to the label.

Christopher Raeburn first explored a naval theme in his autumn 15 menswear collection, and he revisited it yesterday in his womenswear offer, putting a feminine spin on the ideas of life and survival at sea. Lifeboat orange came through in parkas, quilted jackets and duffle coats, while a playful shark motif and a painterly bubble print popped up on several pieces.

Sexy, sculptural party dresses are what Emilio de la Morena is all about, and this season was no different. Inspired by Picasso and the idea of the harlequin, many of De la Morena’s designs featured asymmetrical necklines and hemlines, along with contrasting panels of velvet and metallic jersey.
