LONDON’S TRENDS FROM THE SPRING/SUMMER 2019 COLLECTIONS…

London’s fabulous Spring/Summer 2019 collections were charged with all the power to rock the world of the more avant-garde, risky, edgy and daring fashion souls; though, not leaving aside the more romantic, classic ones. It was delightful to see and feel the artistic and open-minded spirits of the London-based designers and fashion houses.

Runways were filled with spectacular abstract forms, prints and patterns; constructed and deconstructed pieces; voluminous silhouettes, vibrant colors, shiny metallic, multicolored stripes; ruffles; logo-prints; story-telling fabrics, skin-baring straps, cut-outs and draping; and funky accessories with a great dose of masculinity… It was great!

ABSTRATION

Gorgeous artistic abstraction, not only reflected in patterns and prints; but as well as in forms and silhouettes. A vibrant party of color elevated this great party of abstraction to its max! (Kiko Kostadinov, Mary Katrantzou, Halpern)


FULL STRUCTURE

Constructed and deconstructed pieces with edgy structure; XL sleeves, necklines, shoulder pads; A-line skirt and dresses injected so much fun and became a clear proof of wonderful craftsmanship. (Natasha Zinko, J.W. Anderson, Gareth Pugh)


METALLICS

Disco vibes were very present in the British catwalks; mostly seen in great coats, cool ensembles, and super sexy dresses with high slits, deep plunging, drape, beading, paillettes and fringes. (Gareth Pugh, Ashish, Christopher Kane)

 
LOGO PRINTS

There were logos stating the power and proud-attitude of their brand, in all sizes and dimensions; on tops, tees, shirts, sweatshirts, bottoms, jackets, coats and accessories. (House of Holland, MM6 Maison, Burberry)


STORY-TELLING FABRICS

Beautiful story-telling fabrics in rich colors gave special life mostly to beautiful dresses; many with A-line silhouette. (Ashley Williams, Mary Katrantzou, Simone Rocha)


SKIN-BARING

Ultra-sexy dresses and tops, revealing a great deal of skin through draping, paneling and cut-outs; stood out; in shiny, colorful or artsy printed fabrics. (Julien MacDonald, Roland Mouret, David Koma)

 
MULTICOLOR STRIPES

Colorful stripes in all sizes and combinations were seen in long dresses, suits, mix and match ensembles and even on accessories; clearly strengthening the artistic, edgy vibes of these fantastic collections. (Roksanda, Mart Jakubowski, Xiao Li)

Next stop, Milano…

LIFE IS A RUNWAY!
