London Fashion Week S/S 2020 shows unfolded in their splendor despite the bad press and protests taking place right outside the main venue entrance. The ‘frow’ featured many well-known A-listers signaling their approval for top trends we can’t wait to get our hands on next season.
We’re rounding up some of the biggest trends we saw on the runways of LFW this season.
With all the turmoil happening in England, wearing colors that provoke anxiety and stress can worsen the prevailing situation. Designers tried their best to play their due role in art by introducing light-hued purple outfits. Lavender is known to have a calming effect on wearers as well as onlookers, so come spring, make sure to stock a few of these powdery hued pieces.
Checkered print or plaid, this season brought back the late 80s fashion vibes featuring some of the school-like plaids by Ralph Lauren. Cher Horowitz brought it with plaids inspired by the 90s era.
Whether on blazers, dresses, or pants, LFW plaids came in bright rainbow to sophisticated dichromatic hues.
Pattern Over Patter, POP!
Be it animal print, floral print, or abstract – print on print has reached new heights with the recent London shows. For the spring-summer season, you can take inspiration from Preen, Burberry, and Erdem when choosing your spring ensemble.
Gone are the days of minimalist dressing. The 2020 spring-summer collections highlighted the need for change in this minimalist paradigm. Room filling silhouettes are in for next season. From puffy sleeves to oversized silhouettes, from tulle decorations to big bubble-like gowns, London displayed a houseful of cotton candy-like dresses.
In all honesty, this year has given everybody numerous options to dress up in and still look fashionable. Anyone who hasn’t been following the fashion world can look stylish in whatever garbs they wear because of the vast variations in cut, design, and silhouette. It is safe to say that this year’s trend was inclusive in terms of size and design.
It is not news that the Brexit deal has affected all industries across the UK. In case the UK decides to walk out of the EU, the UK fashion industry is estimated to lose almost nine hundred million pounds. Despite the chaotic parliamentary speeches and indecisive actions of politicians, fashion designers rebelled their way through to produce statement-making ensembles.
