Best Of LWF Fall 2015

So London Fashion Week came and went before we even had a chance to completely defrost from the New York freeze. Here are just a few of our favorite from the week . . .

Emilia Wickstead: All the romantically soft and waist cinching loveliness at Emilia Wickstead had us aspiring to adapt that ladylike aesthetic the New Zealand-born designer presented down the runway. Not only were the silhouettes flattering, the unexpected fold and pleats in the tailoring were unique and graceful. Luck be a lady.

London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2015 - Emilia Wickstead - Catwalk

Erdem: Erdem Moralioglu, you had me at that rich, camel wool coat that so brilliantly faded into a glimmering lurex jacquard. And all that distressed, raw edged brocade?! We’re loving this edgier, more urban side to the usually sweet, Erdem girl.

Ports 1961: Sheer fringed tunics, pom pom coats and sweater dresses in grey, cream and black. Perfect. Did we mention pom pom coat?!

Temperley LondonCasual, edgy and nomadic found their place alongside the feminine romantic at Temperley London. Metallic details, textural patterns and roomy cuts were given to coats, wide leg pants and ankle grazing dresses. And with flat velvet slippers, the air was amiably confidant and carefree.

Markus Lupfer: Floral for fall was just one of the twists Markus Lupfer used to get us obsessing over this tomboy cool collection. Sportswear details like old school trainers were charmed with glitter, metallic jacquard shells were paired on top of light knit turtlenecks, and alluring geometrical patterns were employed exorbitantly. And if strawberry printed pants were cute enough, the splendor of a little white bunny (cheating, much?) will be enough to get you, hook, line and sinker.

Toga: Clearly standing out as a designer to watch, Yasuko Furuta of Toga reaffirmed that a neutral palette doesn’t have to be boring. Drawing inspiration from the classic Indian uniform of tunics over pants, surprising details like lace, fringe trim and unexpected layering was simply dazzling. Most memorable were the sashes sewn into the coats, allowing them to be worn like accessories, which further called to mind Indian Maharaja’s traditional costumes.
