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: Patch it up Ashley Williams’ bold Barbie-gone-bad style is only for the brave this autumn/winter; glossy patent black met fuzzy peachy pink in a striking fusion of soft and tough, redefining ‘feminine’ in fashion. Rubbery PVC against flashes of bubblegum pink fur and yellow & purple prints gave a striking contrast of textures, and kitsch patches reminiscent of those iron-on designs you used to fix the knees of your jeans with emphasised the punky, rebellious spirit of the collection. At Anya Hindmarch (pictured right), roadwork signs were the driving force behind designs for AW15. Handbags, sweaters and skirts were emblazoned with graphic motifs and appliqued patches of ‘Stop’ and ‘Go’ signs – and cute traffic cone and air-freshener tree shaped bag charms – as well as all-over roadworks inspired prints. Patches are a simple way to inject some fun into your everyday style, so watch for similar styles hitting the high street next season, or get crafty and design your own! The ultimate unfinish Raw-edged denim may not be anything new, but Marques’Almeida took this to a whole new level for AW15. As well as beautifully draped and deconstructed denim dresses, skirts, asymmetric tops and anoraks creating wonderful new structured shapes, the unfinished effects of raw edging were also seen on colourful mixed brocade prints and metallic silver fabric. For an easy take on the trend, look out for cropped straight-legged jeans or denim jackets with frayed hems, and don’t be afraid to experiment with colour; candy pink and tomato red were standout shades at Marques’Almeida!
