The five brands to watch at London Fashion Week

See you in London. With New York Fashion Week wrapped for another season and the British showcase underway, Fashion Editor Natalie Petrevski shares the shows that should be on your radar.

Christopher Kane

Fire and fantasy. Ultra-cool and feminine, always with a suggestive undertone (think slogans such as Rubberist, Looner and Would you go to bed with me? embedded on garments). Christopher Kane effortlessly brings to life my love (and his signature) of lace and crystals; not in a girlie way, but with an edge and attitude.

Victoria Beckham

Back on London soil and, no, this is not just because the entire Beckham clan will be sitting front row at the show (although they do make quite the picturesque family). The ever-chic and put together VB always puts on a show that is, well, exactly that. Impeccable tailoring and refined silhouettes along with considered colour-pops and layering. For the sophisticated woman who knows herself.

Preen By Thornton Bregazzi

Effortlessly cool and then some. London punk with a masculine edge and tough attitude meets a kind of soft femininity with vintage-inspired elements. Deeply romantic, yet utterly modern … we’re always looking forward to Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi’s new creations.

J.W.Anderson

The king of London Fashion Week and a forever favourite. Cultivating a DIY attitude throughout all of his collections, Jonathan Anderson makes every garment feel like a piece from a greater collage. A variety and mash of colours, textures, patterns, materials, layers and the greatest accessories ever. Art as wearable fashion.

Rejina Pyo

Quite the Instagram favourite of late, Rejina Pyo has grown rapidly in popularity despite her fairly recent 2018 runway debut. Unafraid of colour, Pyo creates incredible mismatched, ready-to-wear pieces and highly sought after footwear and bags. A breath of fresh air.
