LFW: Key Trends for SS15

As London Fashion Week came and went in a flurry, we’re left to mull over its key themes – a compelling mix of dramatic cutout details, deep-sea shades, and ethereal textiles. Read on to see what colours, shapes and design details will define spring/summer 2015. 

While we don’t quite want to think about the depths of winter quite yet, we can happily project ourselves into next spring/summer. And what a great preview London Fashion week provided. Next season’s trends are distinctly fresh – no more simple shift dresses, humdrum florals, and staid linens that look like your grandmother’s cruise collection from the days of yore. Here are six seriously exciting trends spotted among the collections at LFW SS15:

Light blue-green shades on rich fabrics were seen in many of the collections. Eliciting a peaceful, happy calm, it’s the perfect colour for the season of renewal.

 

Waist

The waist has claimed SS15. Whether you’ll be baring it a little, a lot, or cinching it with a swathe of leather, the focus will be on your middle.

 

Frills

Layers of frills, tulle and romantic design details showed aplenty – particularly at Christopher Kane where they peeked dramatically through heavier fabrics such as leather.

 

Tennis Inspired

An athletic influence from the chicest of sports, tennis-inspired pieces were seen in the form of pleated skirts, casual white fit-and-flare dresses and colour-trim jumpers.

 

Peekaboo

Urging us to explore our adventurous sides, designers showed many gowns with bold cutouts and sheer, see-through panels. Get ready to bare it.

Lush botanical prints and 3D florals were displayed in neutral or dark palettes, exuding the allure of a secret, enchanted garden.

The over-arching theme of LFW, which welcomingly left out a lot of spring style clichés, tells us to embrace our dark side but not to forget our femininity. Whether you choose to do this with a dark botanical, black mesh or a giant waist-cincher, we know it won’t be boring.
