Let’s talk about… LFW/SS18

It’s been a while since last time I have shared my last post, too long honestly.

Someone out there might wonder where have I been?… Well, the answer is: I moved apartment. For those people who live in London, they know that the struggle is real. They know how stressful can be such thing. Carrie Bradshaw once said: Finding your right apartment is like finding the right man, it can take ages! I must say she was 100% right.

I am back to blogging and, as London Fashion Week is officially over, we can finally analyse and select what are the trends for the Spring Summer 2018 season.

I believe it is always best to be prepared when you shop for the following season. Make a list of the key piece you would like to purchases, select colours, silhouettes, shapes, materials, lengths and brands to splurge on and then you are ready to go shopping!!

But before you adventure yourself into the shopping session, you must make sure you know what are the trends for next season. For the last couple of years, we have seen how the fashion world paid a tribute to the 90’s underground fashion bringing back oversized puffy jackets, big platforms and chockers: the must-have accessory of the year.  

Let’s start with Simone Rocha, who presented a romantic collection with a throwback early 20th-century fashion. Her vision of the Woman for the Spring Summer 2018 consist of multiple options of outwears:  total white double-breasted trench coat, single breast jacket with accentuated shoulder and spectacular flowers applied all over.  The colour palette for this collection consists of natural colours going from total white looks to black and nude pieces embellished with various embroidery works and lace, lots of lace.

Gareth Pugh takes us to a journey into a futuristic vision of business women. This collection has a strong resemblance with Japanese samurai clothing. I am particularly fascinated by the Elaborated tailored jackets and structured metal bustiers. Only 3 colours have been used for this collection. Red, Gold and Black.

Burberry presented a collection strongly inspired by the 90’s fashion as a tear came out while watching it online remaining me to my childhood spent in the south of Italy. With the approach to fashion Burberry launched the SEE NOW/BUY NOW option which means that the collection is available to be purchased straight after the runway show (Fashion Icon like Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert has demonstrated already how to do it without wasting a second).

Sportswear Chic is what defines the Topshop Unique Woman which is not afraid to try new approaches mixing tailored oversize coats and pearls embellishment with silk satin jogging trousers. Among my favourite pieced we can find the metallic red tailored trousers as well as the pink coat worn by Hailey Baldwin.

What I loved about Antonio Berardi collection is the way he played with proportions and cuts mixing different materials and colours using various prints and patchwork techniques.

For the Spring-Summer collection 2018, Erdem presented an exquisite collection with retro allure. Here we have a throwback to the golden ages of Jazz and an image to HRH Queen Elizabeth II. Brocades Fabrics are the keys for this season.

Probably my favourite collection of London Fashion Week. For this season, Christopher Kane has projected an image of a woman who has a strong personality attached to the past but looking forward to the future. 1940’s inspired, each piece is unique. We find, as seen on the catwalk with Berardi,  amazing cuts with asymmetric details, laces skirts, brocade materials and bold colours with the contrast of different textures.
