London Fashion Week top 3 trends

With London Fashion Week coming to an end, I have picked up on some of my favourite trends that I will be wearing next Autumn/Winter.

1. Cobalt blue.

This shade of blue has always been one of my favourite colours, so I'm so glad that it will be back next Autumn! This colour was used by Giles, Jean Pierre Braganza, Temperley London and Topshop Unique, with Jonathan Saunders and Michael van der Ham combining the cobalt blue shade with pastel blue, another favourite shade for this season.

2. Matching sets.

London Fashion Week has been full of matching suits. Giles, Christopher Kane and Erdem all showcased modern variations of the business suit. Another trend spotted was matching outfits paired with complimentary tops, skirts or trousers. Christopher Kane showcased a latex suit which had a short, boxy jacket with ruffles and matching mini skirt. House of Holland designed a retro outfit consisting of a short jacket with tassel detailing along with tapered pants. Paul Smith showed pajama inspired outfits, combining satin pajama blouses with chic trousers with a jacquard pattern.

3. Asymmetric.

Mary Katrantzou, one of my favourite designers, is all about asymmetrical this season. With cocktail dresses containing a strap on which a long piece of pleated fabric was draped on one side, Katrantzou added elegance to her collection. The straps of evening gowns at J.W Anderson were draping off the models shoulders. You will see a lot of asymmetric pieces this season in not only dresses, but jackets, skirts and tops too.
