[L]ondon Fashion Week hasn’t been without drama this season. Anti-fur activists took up camp outside shows – including Burberry, the BFC show space and more – heckling and spitting at attendees. The protests on the runway were, equally, hard to ignore.
Spring. Sartorially speaking, synonymous with florals, pastels and pick-me-up garms. But for what feels like the first time since the mid ‘80s there was a transparent grittiness seeping onto the catwalk; featuring disrupted hues, gothic romance, moody monochrome. Ashish and Ryan Lo, for instance, swapped their signature happy-go-lucky, all-colours-of-the-rainbow ensembles for a series of darker, dreamlike looks.
As Martin Luther King Jr. powerfully proclaimed: “only in the darkness can you see the stars.” And the future is certainly looking bright for these emerging trends from LFW…
