Some of the most anticipated shows of the season have come and gone in London. London is a multicultural hub of fashion and style. The Spring/Summer17 shows perfectly reflected the diversity present in the city, from Ashish’s Indian inspired collection to Topshop Unique’s English 80s retro-inspired collection, every base was covered. Mess Magazine is covering some of our favorite shows from London fashion week.
Marques Almeida was filled with deconstructed and on trend pieces. Their most exciting looks were a combination of oversized collared shirts and off the shoulder billowy shirts that screamed fall.
Topshop Unique went back to 80s. Their checkered prints and tailored cuts were both somehow traditional and edgy. Eye-catching looks like silk dresses and animal print. Not to be overshadowed were the high waist cigarette trousers and prints that were fun and sophisticated. For the first time, all the runway looks are available for purchase online.
Osman was an edgy fairytale. Feminine silhouettes were paired with strong and even futuristic accessories. Tulle fabrics dominated the runway and showcased the romantic trend that is hitting the mainstream.
Ashish was an experience. The heavily Indian influenced show was eccentric in set design and every look down the runway caught your eye. From intricate jewelry piece to full bodied embellished skirts, this show was packed full of detail.
Versus Versace can be considered Versace’s punky little sister. The clothes in this collection were directed to a younger crowd, drawing influences from punk rock grunge and the military. Army greens and blacks littered the runway and the looks were strong and commanded attention.
Fyodor Golan gave us a glimpse into the future. Their latest collection showcased a variety of intergalactic babes in deconstructed denim pieces, luminescent two pieces, and neon dresses. The collection was varied and cohesive with a recurring abstract design on a variety of pieces.
