London Fashion Week A/W 2018 – the Highlights

The style standouts from a show graced by royalty

Matty Bovan
Rejina Pyo
JW Anderson
Mary Katrantzou

The world’s top fashion houses descended on London once more to showcase their wares for the coming season. This time around a few clear trends stood out, from brash millennial pink to daring Bauhaus motifs and beyond. And, with the Queen in attendance, there was a regal atmosphere befitting the occasion. Below we run through the highlights.

Tweed plus…

Checked or flecked, tough-old tweed is now the background for contrast with crystals and sequins (Erdem), lace (Rejina Pyo), ribbon (Matty Bovan) and sparkle (Simone Rocha).

Grand knits

Elevated from mere comfort dressing, knits set the design pace at JW Anderson, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Bovan, Emilia Wickstead, Roland Mouret and Christopher Kane.

New bourgeois 

Take a neat pleated skirt, a camel coat, a scarf print and some pearls. Remind you of anyone? Richard Quinn, Toga, Pyo, Mother of Pearl, JW Anderson and Emilia Wickstead think they know who.

Modern art 

Witness graphic colour, pure geometry and modern effortlessness at Roksanda, Delpozo and Jasper Conran; add graffiti and Bauhaus slogans at Marques’Almeida and Mary Katrantzou respectively.

Green and pink – colour choice

Apart from tweedy neutrals, two colours stood out: green from khaki to moss, or military at Temperley London, faded antique at Preen, and country-style at JW Anderson – and millennial pink, ruffled by Molly Goddard, pleated by JW Anderson, or sculpted by Delpozo. These shades look good together too.
