LFW fashion and beauty report AW 17

London cool goes punk perfect – just add artful layers and British heritage, reinterpreted. Here’s what caught our eyes at London Fashion Week.

The DIY attitude.

CHRISTOPHER KANE
Quirky footwear, prints and embellishments.

BURBERRY RUNWAY
A collection full of lace, layers and sculptured heels in muted colours – inspired by artist Henry Moore.

ERDEM
A renaissance of floral prints and velvet dresses. Vintage appeal.

Darkness becomes you.

GARETH PUGH
Eyes were blacked out and exaggerated by way of false lashes. Beauty goes underground.

MARGARET HOWELL
Oversized coats and jumpers met tailored shirts and pants in a flourish of textures. A classic take on androgynous work wear.

JOSEPH
Long layers for the cooler months. An array of blocked colour and perfectly clashing prints for Joseph AW 17.

HOUSE OF HOLLAND
Paris Texas. Fix your gaze on the sunset and channel your beauty to match.

The journey’s yours.

J.W.ANDERSON
Asymmetric patchworked dresses and drop-waist skirts with ostrich feathers for J.W.Anderson’s “style odyssey”.

PREEN BY THORTON BREGAZZI
Floral dresses layered with sheer tulle and tailored pieces paired with flower-darned socks. Models walked the runway in a show of female solidarity.

MARY KATRANTZOU
Under the sea. Coral colours shaded the eyes of Mary Katrantzou’s girls. Peach, pink, aqua and yellow – take your pick.

PETER PILOTTO
A touch of pink. Faces were kept almost bare and ever-so-slightly glossed. Simplicity reigns.

For the quirky girls.

MOLLY GODDARD
Delicate tulle dresses layered with sweatshirts and pants.

TOPSHOP UNIQUE
Lips were awash with the sweetest orange and lashes coated with a thick layer of mascara. Peachy keen.

SIMONE ROCHA
A mostly muted palette with pops of colour and print. Models of all generations walked the runway for Simone Rocha AW 17.

VERSUS VERSACE
Shape up. Hair was knotted, messy and free with a graphic, bold line of shadow heavily shading the eye. Take the risk.

Your face is your canvas.

VIVIENNE WESTWOOD
Either keep skin bare or scribble all over. Consider yourself an artwork.

MULBERRY
From exaggerated shoulders to oversized suits and checks in all proportions. A fresh take on English heritage.
