London Fashion Week was held this year with a bang showcasing designer fashion for Spring/Summer 2013. We absolutely loved the collections and would love to share our visual summary of the main trends that we spotted.
Black & White Prints
Black&White Prints were all over the LFW catwalk. It was a bit surprising to find that these colours, especially black, would be included in a spring summer collection, as we are used to seeing colourful combinations during these two seasons. However, we love the contrasting effect being created and we suppose a bit of yin and yang mystery could only be a good thing! 🙂
Following on from the 2012 Summer Trends, we note that Egyptian and Aztec prints will be in next summer as well, however, the patterns seem to be more rectangular/square rather than the triangular ones we saw this year. This is one of our favourite designs and we love the distinguished look created by the gold detail and printed patterns.
Colour Blocking refers to combining primary colours (i.e. red, yellow and blue), or combining primary colours with their complementary colours (e.g. red combined with green).
We would prefer to use the term ‘colour-contrasting’ for the collections at LFW as the colour combinations seen would not perfectly fit the term ‘colour-blocking’. These designs remind us of abstract art – a more contemporary look for the modern age. It is a statement look, probably not for the faint of heart.
Yup, mints, corals, yellows will all be in next spring/summer! These beautiful pale pastel colours are perfect for sunny days and will definitely cheer you up 🙂
We love, love, lovee these printed collections and can’t wait to get our hands on one of these designs next Spring/summer. The colours are absolutely vibrant and we adore how blacks, florals and pastel shades have all been implemented in these styles.
Our Favourite Collection:
This may be a spring/summer collection for 2013 but we definitely wouldn’t mind wearing it NOWW. This collection by Ashish, has got to be our favourite one and we just love how he has managed to pull off the ‘bad-gal’ look with sequins. We will surely be shopping around to make this look possible asap!
