The fashion set descended on London last week, fighting through storms and tube chaos to catch the latest offerings for AW20. From the environment to politics, designers’ statements went way beyond conventional fashion trends. Here are some of our favourites.
Day 1: Richard Malone
Richard Malone is designing us into the future. His latest collection is an expert play on sex and gender, also highlighting his devotion to sustainability and transparency (including merino wool that can be traced back to a single sheep). We loved it.
Westminster University BA Fashion
Westminster BA students revealed final collections inspired by everything from Power Puff Girls to climate change. Highlights included: voluminous, structural puffer jackets; opulent baroque headpieces; balloon-clad boots; twins in matching capes; and red latex looks that mix nuns with The Handmaid’s Tale.
Temperley London celebrated 20 years with a spectacular evening of fun at the flagship store in Bruton Street, festooned for the occasion in pretty pink flowers. For this season, Temperley visualised the woman as a dancer with a retro touch in sparkling dresses with rhinestones and floral embroideries.
