#LFW Trend Spotting

#LFW Trend Spotting

Wednesday, October 02 2013

London Fashion Week has come and gone leaving quite an impression on us. With the "Fashion Month" wrapping up we've dedicated our time to bring you the latest trends for spring 2014. In a previous post, we covered #NYFW and we have our eyes set on London for this one. Stay tuned for Paris and MIlan!

We know what you're thinking. Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking. Well, actually it is. This season we saw florals in a new light. Oversized, clustered, vibrant and in many different forms. We see all over prints, embroidery and appliqué, along with some imagery reminiscent of high school biology worksheets. We're seeing florals used in an ultra femme tea party aesthetic and we're seeing it in a darker romance look. Look for light day dresses and ephemeral gowns this season.

On the Runway was the classic and a fashion favorite, lace. This fashion week, lace wasn't just finishing touches, rather the main attraction. We see lace from head to toe and in array of colors and tones. From neon pastels to rich neutrals. We've seen it in matching seperates, with blazers, belts, and collared shirts. The easiest way to incorporate some lace into your outfits this season is probably with separates like a pencil skirt or blouse.

The Forties has always been a whisper in the inspiration for many designers and it was clearly seen this time around in London. From simple separates to delicately embroidered coat dresses, the femme forties are making a statement. With updates silhouettes and bold color this trend is ace!
