Vibrant colours, loud prints and effortless layering are all making waves on the streets of London this fashion week.
As the second instalment of the four week-long fashion month marathon gets underway, all eyes are, once again, on London’s buzzy fashion scene which was in full swing over the weekend.
But it’s not just the dazzling designers that pique our interest; it’s the street style too, the pieces that the fashion cognoscenti are wearing to pound the pavements. And this season, as the style set descend upon London’s hotspots to watch our homegrown designers reveal their spring/summer 2022 collections, the street style is better than ever.
Brimming with oversized shirting – the perfect accoutrement to transitional styling – and slouchy tailoring, the looks are crisp and collected, a marked move away from the elasticated wares that dominated the last London Fashion Week in February, which was entirely digital. We’re also seeing the return of vibrant, maximalist hues on both the catwalk and on the streets of the capital. The incorporation of prints with bold block colours sees bright outfits only making more of an impact this year.
Still to come on the fashion week schedule are in-person shows from the purveyor of pearls, Simone Rocha; the king of partywear, Richard Quinn and Erdem to name just a few. Fashion is back – hurrah!
