London Fashion Week took place from February 19-23, showcasing some of the newest autumn/winter menswear and womenswear collections.
With London being on lockdown and with stricter social distancing rules in place, this year’s shows were all digital.
Here we gather a list of some of the best collections for this LFW edition.
Founded in 2005 by Erdem Moralioglu, the London-based fashion house gained exposure throughout the years for its bold, timeless and feminine silhouettes.
Inspired by the world of drama, the designer’s newest collection features theatrical pieces and offers audiences a romantic take on the world of ballerinas highlighted by innovative elements such as elevated ballet slippers, knitwear, feathers and delicate hair accessories.
Irish designer Simone Rocha unveiled her AW21 collection on February 23 in St John’s Church, Hyde Park. The new pieces featured some of Rocha’s signature design elements such as tulle dresses and pearl embellishments.
The collection was also comprised of leather jackets, bold sleeves and chunky boots, adding a Rockstar vibe to the designer’s feminine and unusual silhouettes.
Founded almost 21 years ago, Temperley London has stayed true to its British heritage and is often known for its effortless modern bohemian looks.
The new collection is inspired by the style of various musical icons from the late 60’s and early 70’s. It features bell bottoms, midi-skirts, long coats, ruffled shirts, velvet jackets, animal prints and more.
After recently graduating in 2019 and founding her brand in 2020, Abigail Ajobi recently unveiled her AW20-21 luxury streetwear collection at London Fashion Week.
The label aims to raise awareness on social issues, that are often ignored, through its print-based fashion and limited-quantity designs. For their newest drop, the brand relied on dead stock fabric to create its unique pieces which helped reduce waste and promote sustainable fashion practices.
With a design studio based in the heart of London, fashion designer Paul Costelloe became an established name in the British fashion industry. The brand’s newest collection pays homage to Costelloe’s days as a young designer in Paris, in the 60’s and 70’s.
“With a sense of athleticism and freedom, Costelloe tailoring is back, in sculptured outerwear, sharp suiting and softly constructed eveningwear,” mentioned the brand on its official Instagram page.
The beautiful warm autumn colours matched with bold prints and geometrical silhouettes add a touch of positivity and optimism to the unique collection.
