London Fashion Week Highlights

So there we have it! The shows are over, the fashion circus has moved on to Milan and now it’s time to take a deep breath and take stock of the styles we’ll be wearing come autumn.

We’ve seen Cara Delevigne cement her place as Queen of the Catwalk (watched on from the FROW by her No. 1 fan and ‘wifey’, Rita Ora) and Jourdan Dunn admirably manage a wardrobe malfunction – but models aside it’s time to talk trends.

Our LFW highlights included the cute collection from a loved-up Christopher Bailey, who showed  heart prints for men and women at Burberry Prorsum. Meanwhile, at Topshop Unique it was well and truly a sequin spangled affair, and whilst Mulberry plumped for picnic blanket plaid Tom Ford took a walk on the wild side with his ethnic inspired collection which was packed with lashings of leopard print.

 

L-R: Burberry Prorsum, Topshop Unique, Tom Ford and Mulberry

Tempted to get shopping? Here are 5 items to buy now to get ahead of the fashion pack (and they’re in the sale)…

 

 

1. A-Wear Heart Print Blouse, WAS £30 NOW £12 at USC
2. Planet Leopard Print Pencil Skirt, WAS £69 NOW £19 at House of Fraser
3. Current Elliott Leopard Print Jeans, WERE £225 NOW £112 at House of Fraser

5. L.K. Bennett Blancked Check Coat, WAS £295 NOW £145

Psst… one to avoid might be the toilet roll accessories at Louise Gray – although we can’t deny it may come in handy! Who ever said fashion is impractical?
