All the best looks from London Fashion Week 2021
London is popular in the fashion realm with youth, colour, vibrancy, and creativity. And in the middle of a lockdown, the energy persists and we have to give a nod to the imaginative resilience.
Lets check out the best looks coming out of London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2021.
Rocha’s collection was not without staples, which she showcased at the event. Her collection encompassed embroidered tulles, hand-painted flowers on pearls and porcelain cameos, encased in gold. Rocha's work is always a contrast of hard and soft, masculine and feminine, drama without being too delicate. We love the masculine and feminine contrast. We show elements of this in our Ukiyo tracksuits. The feminine embroidered logo, but the masculine oversized fit is a dream combination.
Duro Olowu’s print-heavy fall collection was packed with modernist florals and abstract python prints in bright shades of burnt orange, fuchsia, green, and turquoise. It was inspired by the work of painters Barkley L. Hendricks and Édouard Vuillard. Duro Olowu’s vibrant colours and statement prints are a must have.
Preen by Thornton Bregazzi
Preen by Thornton Bregazzi showcased their selection of prairie-inspired dresses in bright hues or dainty floral prints, which were largely accessorized with silk headscarves. Flower power is a go-to for the Preen brand, and their frocks certainly continued this message. It is something we have seen before in previous seasons but in a much softer and daintier way.
Roksanda illustrated her juxtaposition of neutral hues with vivid colours or sweet pastels on oversized tailored separates. The London-based designer is also a lover of Abstract Expressionism, often showcasing bold, painterly prints on voluminous silhouettes.
Her collection this autumn/winter showcased oversized suits, kaftans and blanket coats. Still, she did not let us down, offering larger-than-life taffeta gowns and flowing silk dresses with statement prints. She did, however, present the more practical styles that largely reflected quarantine life, much like Ukiyo’s chic loungewear collection.
Emilia Wickstead drew inspiration from classic cinema. The Brit designer has a way with the classic and ladylike. For fall 2021, the cinematography that drew her in was based on three films: Teorema (1968) by Pier Paolo Pasolini, I Am Love (2009) by Luca Guadagnino, and Rear Window (1954) by Alfred Hitchcock. Traditional suiting was done up in wool and soft flannel tailored close to the body. She presented a beautiful off-the-shoulder dress in charcoal wool, which had a touch of '90s minimalism. A blue and white two-piece set was giving china vibes, which we are here for.
We are obsessed with her off the shoulder black dress. If its good enough for the runway its good enough for us! Check out our fitted satin black dress for all the Emilia Wickstead vibes.
