Fashion Month in Collage: Part 2

Continuing my look at fashion month SS16 in collage format. London Fashion Week hurtled by and we're now fixated on Milan's offerings. London is generally my favourite of the four main weeks due to the creative and anarchic nature of its native design scene. So many trends and highlights to choose from but here are the ones that stood out amongst the rest...

Pick 'n' Mix




One of my most-loved trends (ongoing, not just throughout this particular fashion month) is the mixture of elements that 'shouldn't work' but just do. This season, a number of designers have blended prints, colours, and textures to create a vibrant, chaotic mix; beautiful in its disconnection. Seen at Christopher Kane, Toga, Stella Jean (shown at Milan but definitely belongs in this category), and Ashish. 


Frill Seeker



Whether it's all over ruffles or a single stand alone frill, it's been all about the flounce when it comes to trim. Seen at Holly Fulton, Sibling, Fyodor Golan, Roksanda, Ryan Lo, and Mary Katrantzou. Of course I love the maximalist approach to Ryan Lo's frothy creations, but my favourite wearable takeaway from this trend is the voluminous bell sleeve.
