The next wave of fashion is here and it's unexpected, underground, and cutting edge. Unlike New York, London warmed up to Summer in micro florals and statement sleeves. And while we remained obsessed with the cutting edge trends that will define our Summer of 2017, Burberry's collection signalled a new era in fashion. Their see-now-buy-now show dropped 83 looks inspired by Virginia Woolf's, Orlando. A week of first's, London owned it. Here's how you can...
Your basic florals just had an edgy makeover. While intricate and delicate garlands met Pentagrams in a sartorial burst, Emilia Wickstead peppered her collection with charming sprigs. No reason why we shouldn't go down this secret garden ;)
If 2016 was about all about the shoulders, 2017 is going to be all about the sleeves. While Simone Rocha, Emilia Wickstead, and Ashley Williams paid voluminous homage with raw-edged ruffles, Preen went full focal on mammoth tiered frills. Marques ‘ Almeida on the other hand brought streetwise sass to the sleeves. Oh yes!
Love trawling through a fashion favourite in a new way? Say yes to deconstruction and asymmetry. While Mulberry played with jagged hems, Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi at Preen, pulled up and down variations of the hemline. JW Anderson took his love for handkerchied hemline to the next level with a dress made entirely out of white Irish linen handkerchiefs.
