London Fashion Week has come to a close, and here at Beginning Boutique, we thought we’d take a fashionable stroll down memory lane from this year’s event. The mighty City of London welcomed our fave celebs, as they sat front row at exclusive shows, graced the pages of magazines, mingled with prized industry professionals and models, and attended classy after parties! Most importantly, it’s the week where we get an inside look into next season’s hottest fashion trends! London Fashion Week SS’17 brought an array of unique and flawless designs that we cannot wait to get our hands on. Here’s our top three trends for the year to come…
London Fashion Week was the pinnacle of the Greek Mythology trend. We felt like we were back in Ancient Greece itself with optical graphics and geometric designs. The Grecian trend had an environmental element intertwined. The designs incorporated earthy tones and bold colours, with intricate birds and Grecian gods adorned onto the patterns. Mary Katrantzou paved the way for this trend with a nod to her own ancestry, with a scene setting incorporating white and mirrored columns. Her collection was the epitome of Minoan frescos and artefacts. Even the models graced the runway like goddesses themselves, with bold lips, feathery earrings, neck cuffs, and leafy accessories pulling the whole show together.
The Cold Shoulder
We hope you are a fan of the cold shoulder trend, because boy oh boy did London Fashion Week designers take full advantage of it! The off-the-shoulder trend was spotted in countless shows, from Andrew Gn, and Issa, to Malaysian designer Bernard Chandran. The cold shoulder was adorned in numerous ways; whether it was a simple cut-out or completely torn off! One thing we know for sure is that the cold-shoulder and off-the-shoulder trend is not over, and you definitely need to catch on!
London Fashion Week 2016 and oversized sleeves went together like bread and butter! Mother of Pearl took their own version of the big sleeve to the max, by including intricate hemming and flowing silhouettes. The big sleeve was spotted in an assortment of colours and textures, either draped over the model’s shoulder, worn loosely or used to create added drama and flow to an outfit.
