Following a blur of shows, clothes and parties, the last day of LFW SS16 has come. Show-goers, bloggers and general fashion appreciators descended on Brewer Street for the last time this season. And boy did they have to wrap up as, in true British style, the heavens opened.
Maroon appears to have been the colour du jour, especially in outerwear, with Made in Chelsea’s Proudlock channelling the shade in sartorial style.
Following its summer success, suede is continuing its time in the spotlight for autumn, providing warmth in the form of hats and coats. And that’s not the only 70s inspiration to make it through into the new season. Denim was everywhere; flared, with patches and frayed cuffs.
Knitwear, too, is starting to arrive to protect against the September chill, and this season, it has to be ribbed – you heard it here first. Burberry model Neelam Gill, on her way to the Ashish catwalk show, kept warm in a black cropped jumper with eyelet side detail.
Yet undeterred by the constant drizzle, oversize sunglasses remained a popular accessory – after all, fashion week couldn’t be fashion week without them, whatever the weather.
Until next season LFW, you’ve been fabulous.
