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: Mix and match More is definitely more for AW15, according to Preen (pictured right) and Matthew Williamson. Throwing together bright patchwork fabrics, shearling, checks, appliqued florals, cropped knits and light chiffon dresses, Preen’s witchy, bohemian looks from Thea Bregazzi and Justin Thornton were an absolute delight. Similarly, Williamson’s bohemian collection of relaxed, slouchy asymmetric jersey dresses, bodacious brocades and jewel-coloured jumpsuits worn with bright blue furry accessories had an effortless ‘I just threw this on’ feel to it while still managing to look wonderfully glamourous and elegant. Vivienne Westwood’ politically -charged show also brought plenty of clashing prints and lashings of accessories to the party. This is one look that will be easy to achieve this winter; the one rule is, there are no rules! Clash your prints and textures to your hearts content, and the more clashing cosy layers the better! Earn your stripes Opting for their usual monochrome palette, palmer//harding’s AW15 collection featured simple, but incredibly striking, stripe details. Thick and thin black velvet stripes were appliqued on crisp shirt dresses, sleeves, and tweedy skirts, wide-legged trousers and dresses. Stripes were also big at Jonathan Saunders’ more colourful show; a rainbow of cherry red, pea green, bubblegum pink, violet and mustard yellow structured silhouettes strutted down the catwalk, adorned with thick stripes of block colours or cloudlike prints. There was a lot going on but, combined with simple straight cut blouses, skirts and shift dresses, it avoided feeling too busy. Whether you keep your stripes subtle a la palmer//harding or embrace Saunders’ bold and bright styles, it’s an easy way to add some interest to your winter wardrobe.
