London is the birthplace of edgy and subversive fashion.
Whether it’s a playful twist on a long-forgotten trend or a reinvention of outre textures and patterns, London Fashion Week designers have a grand tradition of going against the grain. Of rejecting convention in favour of something a little bit unusual and fresh.
This is the event that has propelled the visionaries such as Matthew Williamson, Stella McCartney and Christopher Kane into stardom, after all.
This spirit of rebellion translates to street style, too.
As London Fashion Week wraps this week, we reflect on how the pavements of the capital have been awash with experimental and progressive motifs.
From irreverent cartoon prints to bold dashes of colour and flamboyant throwback outfits, expect the unexpected as you peruse our pick of the most eye-catching LFW street styles – or check out all the latest front row action here.
