Spring/Summer 2014 – London Fashion Week Trends
What most people don’t know is that there are two kinds of Londoners – the cooler-than-the-cool-kids East London hipster and the pretty’n’posh West London socialite. But for Fashion Week, everyone’s a Londoner. Because when you can jet from the crazy innovative Christopher Kane show to the supremely sophisticated Burberry Prorsum show to the eclectic mastermind that is Peter Pilotto, you run the spectrum of just how remarkably diverse a city London is. And the trends bursting from the Spring Summer ’14 proved that theory to be undoubtedly true.
3D Florals – Gone are the days of basic floral prints. Appliqued, dimensional florals were introduced on the runways of Burberry Prorsum, Erdem, Matthew Williamson and Temperley.
Cream of the Crop – Shredded, fringed, ruffled, textured, folded and crisscrossed, the crop top returns with some seriously stylish upgrades.
Cut to the Chase – The sharp laser cut-outs resembling enlarged petals at Christopher Kane reminded us that florals can be both sexy and chic.
Speak Your Mind – Maybe London designers had to get something off their chests because the logo prints, quirky messages and comedic commands that danced across sweatshirts and knitwear certainly pointed in that direction.
