London Fashion Week, it’s a stylish affair.
From the star-packed front row at Burberry’s seasonal extravaganza, completely with musical interlude, to the sartorial aplomb of those braving the cobbles at its home at Somerset House, LFW is the place that sets trends to the next season.
So what does Spring/Summer 2015 have in store for us fashion wise? Let’s hope not the following trends, which are so wacky and strange that we hope they stay on the catwalk.
Forget your fascinator for your niece’s wedding next summer – save your pennies for one of these enormous head pieces from Sibling instead. Granted, it’ll barely fit into a pew but when you’re so on trend, who cares!
If you bought culottes this year, save them as with a few tasteful tweaks, you can make them oh-so-summer ’15. All you need is a suspender belt, a la Nasir Mazhar, and you’re good to go. Probably not one for the office, mind.
Thin, thick, it doesn’t matter but the fabric du jour will be see-through and plastic. Taking sheer to a whole new level, a plastic dress, like this Whistles’ frock, or shirt will be great for shielding you from the inevitable summer rain, but bad for you modesty. Invest in big pants.
Cara Delevingne’s big, bold brows haven’t got anything on these beauties. And the best part? You don’t need to spend months waiting for yours to grow, you can fake them yourself!
All you need is some masking tape, the guts to stick it to your eyebrow and voila, Vivienne Westwood inspired eyebrows.
What does one do with a loft or cupboard full of old lampshades? You up the DIY ante and turn them into swish hats, that’s what. KTZ showed them in a plethora of shades and patterns but we say bring out the velour and tasselled ones for your own take on the trend.
Fashion does love an animal or insect to obsess over; we can understand the appeal of a furry fox or a colourful butterfly, and summer ’15 will be the year of the prawn.
This cute crustacean looks set to adorn every piece of your wardrobe including jackets, as seen at Temperley; think less Marie Rose sauce, more quirky style.
