The time for breaking out our favourite SS15 pieces is almost upon us but, already, it’s time to look ahead to what the biggest names in fashion have in store for AW15! Be ahead of the pack with our round-up of the best trends from each day of London Fashion Week: Warrior princess At sass & bide, strong warrior women stormed the catwalk wearing tough fabrics and heavy armour-like embellishments. Silhouettes were form-fitting, but not restrictive – exactly what you would expect from your ideal battle get-up – and, with its monochrome base palette and striking metallic accents, as well as the occasional actual metal plate, the sass & bide woman certainly isn’t one to be messed with. Heavy-duty leather skirts and trousers, glistening intricate beading on leggings and sleeveless jackets, cage-like cut-out details and boxy structures teamed with flowing chiffon skirts made for a powerful collection that you won’t want to have to wait to add to your wardrobe! Hang on to your leather trousers, bralets and metallic accessories and you’ll be winter-ready. Blooming brilliant A rich and varied collection, which incorporated sports luxe fusions, ornate details and edgy pastels, the real highlights of Bora Aksu’s AW15 show were the beautifully layered floral-inspired pieces, which brought together a delicate palette and cool cutwork for a truly original approach to fashion’s seemingly never-ending fancy for florals. A grungy-girly palette of black, pale blue, rose pink and lilac worked with layers of chiffon and organza beneath delicate cut-outs, loose strings, lace embroidery, stunning appliques and sheer pleats offered a wild array of touch-me textures, which we can’t wait to get our hands on!
