LFW TRENDS FW12: by Fashion Edit 247


From constructivism, utilitarianism and classic English country looks to rebel mixes of fabric, print and pattern, Chris Gilbert of Fashion Edit 247 takes us through the highlights of London Fashion Week with 5 key ideas x 5 examples in The Spark

 

BLOCKED OUT
The ongoing influence of a Constructivist style looks to the boldness of color blocking that is tempered by a low key approach that spotlights interest in neutral color mixing as the dominant direction.

Acquascutum

 

MIX MASTERS
Eclectic and eccentric describes rebel English style and it’s a strong statement this season as the interest in one of a kind co-ordination and a jumble sale of diverse and unrelated prints and patterns shake up the establishment

FLOWER SHOW
The traditionally pretty and feminine focus on florals is given a modern update with a spotlight on offbeat flowers, larger scales and interesting techniques that look to not only prints, but appliques and flocked effects too.

Temperley London

 

IN SERVICE
Interest in sustainablity and return to authenticity and basics keeps the spotlight on the military and utilitarian style. A surplus of uniform items and details and a spotlight on army green keeps the military message on parade.

COUNTRY SQUIRE
The retro status influence of the landed gentry inspires a classically English focus on ‘to the manor born’ sportswear separates and an interest in classic country inspired prints, patterns and heritage fabrics.
