As we wave goodbye to one summer, it’s time to welcome in another at London Fashion Week SS15! The biggest and best names in design have put together their fashion forecasts for next summer, and you can get ahead with our round-up of the best trends from each day of London’s biggest fashion event: Oranges and lemons Citrus shades were at the forefront of a few shows on Day 2, including Lucas Nascimento, Emilia Wickstead (pictured right) and Barbara Casasola. Nascimento’s clean-cut layers of multi-tonal orange shades or yellow-green chartreuse in opaque and sheer fabrics conveyed a sporty formal look, while Emilia Wickstead’s fresh tangerine, white and pastel yellow palette complemented her minimal, yet decidedly feminine, structured silhouettes. Sophisticated asymmetric cut-out column dresses were the key shape at Barbara Casasola, where pops of orange and pleated accents added vibrancy to a mostly muted collection of black, grey, khaki and brown. Monochrome There’s no escaping monochrome for SS15! Both KTZ (pictured below right) and Sibling inevitably went for wacky new takes on the trend; at KTZ, Victorian cameos were the clear inspiration as striking, oversized monochrome applique cameos featured on simple black or white shift dresses, pencil skirts, boxy blouses and jackets. Sibling were typically playful, with models donning huge black and white bow headpieces to top of casual monochrome separates, including black knicker shorts, relaxed sweaters, and tight bandeau tops and skirts in a quirky, bold abstract print. For Jasper Conran, the monochrome trend was a little less zany, working well with pops of blue across a relaxed collection of sporty tailoring; skirts, blouses and dresses all had a laidback, easy to wear feel which will be wonderfully wearable next summer. JW Anderson’s French Riviera-inspired show featured plenty of season-appropriate off-white linen with nautical details, but black leather details gave an unexpected twist to offset these classic summer styles – floppy leather hats, collars on shirts and bustiers layered over chic gold-buttoned dresses.
