LFW report SS 17

London calling. From daisy chain girls to creatures of the night, we round up the best of London Fashion Week.

Bring her flowers.

PAUL SMITH
Inspired by artist Hilma af Klint, Paul Smith SS 17 combined daisy prints and soft silhouettes. Fashion quirks.

MULBERRY
Silk striped blazers and separates at Mulberry SS 17. Pyjamas for all the time.

Cutting shapes.

PETER PILOTTO
A collaboration with artist Francis Upritchard, whose work made its way onto Peter Pilotto’s SS 17 offering via brightly bejewelled patches.

TOPSHOP UNIQUE
Remember the 80s. Zebra prints, fuchsia tones and patent leather set a punk tone for the inner club girl.

All the girls and boys.

BURBERRY RUNWAY
The first see now, buy now collection for Burberry Runway SS 17. From denim to cashmere to pyjama silks, SS 17 is both masculine and feminine, casual and dressed-up.

MARY KATRANTZOU
Hit by a wave of tessellating shapes and ancient Greek motifs, Mary Katrantzou’s SS 17 pieces were abundant with optical illusions.

Cult movement.

PREEN BY THORNTON BREGAZZI
Frills and ruffles, coloured metallics, dark and light, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi channeled punk and goth vibes with a floral touch.

VERSUS VERSACE
Stand to attention. Frayed denim, touches of khaki and a plethora of leather made up Versus Versace’s new uniform.

Not that innocent.

SIMONE ROCHA
Sheer ruffles, lace and embroidery on signature dresses paired with utilitarian gumboots for SS 17.

J.W.ANDERSON
A mash of vibrant colours and mismatched shapes. Energy runs wild.

Piece by piece.

CHRISTOPHER KANE
Printed iconology, the glimmer of embellishments and, of course, glamourised crocs – inspired by Britain’s ‘make do and mend’ sentiment of the Second World War.
