Style: London Fashion Week Highlights AW15

London calling! We've cherry picked the best of London Fashion Week so you don't have to

Its reputation for creative, eccentric design firmly intact, London put on a great show this fashion week, offering everything from Gothic princesses and pop-art fun, to boho babes and rebellious retro. It was a hard task, but we've selected our favourite shows just for you...



Sibling, known for doing with knitwear what you never thought possible, have gone and done it again. This season the Sibling girl is a plastic punk princess in pink and blue latex with vintage Missoni-esque knits. We all want to be Sibling girls.

Key piece: multi-coloured tube jumper dress perfect for not caring in an 80's teen rebel kind of way.


 

Like playing dress-up in your granny's wardrobe, Simone Rocha was a little girl's dream of ruffles in silk and velvet with lashings of brocade and lace. Typically playful, enticingly opulent and a little bit dark, Rocha will spark desire in the heart of every fashionista this Autumn-Winter.

Key piece: make like your seven-year-old self and whip up a curtain into a dress, or failing that, be sure to sport a neat little brocade tailored jacket.

 

All hail the master of pattern! Jonathan Saunders has yet again produced an endlessly delightful collection. Full of bold pattern and colour, inspired by pop art and with some nice 60's references – note the over-sized and cat-eye shades –  this season is bright, fun, and full of hope.

Key piece: a simple and effortless striped polo-neck jumper.

 

Roksanda was a swirling sea of maroon, ochre, cobalt and cerise. The richest of colours in the most luxurious of fabrics - fur, leather, suede, quilted silk... a truly covetable collection, in wonderfully wearable silhouettes.   

Key piece: a luxe fur stole in claret or burgundy.


Having just won the Elle Style Awards Designer of the Year, Erdem continued to ride high with a super-pretty collection of Victoriana and bohemian pieces against a backdrop of mid-century domesticity. Knowingly nostalgic and downright stunning.

Key piece: a demure, high-collared chinoiserie dress suitable for tea in Bloomsbury.


 

Burberry stole the show with a glorious finale to London Fashion Week (what - there were other shows afterwards?!) With a triumphant parade of beautiful boho looks complete with cosy ponchos, patchwork boots and more suede fringing than hitherto thought possible – Christopher Bailey, accompanied by full gospel choir and silver confetti, took us all to church this LFW.

Key piece: patchwork thigh-high suede boots to see you safely through the chillier months.
