London Fashion Week came to a close on Tuesday but don’t worry if you missed anything because we’ve put together a handy recap. So, let’s get into it.
The collections on the whole were generally vibrant and colourful, bringing some much needed relief from the bleak global situation.
Molly Goddard was one designer who stood out with her bright designs. Vivid greens, oranges, and reds dominated the collection, and Goddard also collaborated with UGG this season creating slides perfect for lockdown.
Like Goddard, Simone Rocha was another designer who created an escapist reality through her designs. She took us away to a regal castle fantasy, which saw her experimenting with traditional silhouettes.
And we have to mention Maximilian. Designer Maximilian Davis excited critics including Vogue’s Olivia J Singer who said she was “fully obsessed” with the collection. Davis drew inspiration from his Trinidadian heritage, reclaiming the carnival which once forced enslaved people to perform for entertainment.The collection was a celebration of Black identity and female sexuality.
Next up, Burberry made headlines with its sea-themed collection. For SS21, Riccardi Tisci reimagined the brand’s signature trench coat, and steered away from the beige colour palette we’ve come to know from Burberry, injecting bursts of bright blues and oranges.
Vivienne Westwood also managed to take time out of her protesting to create a full collection, which was presented via a short film.
Speaking of short films, Bianca Saunders showcased her clothes via film, taking inspiration from Dutch artist Hans Eikkelboom’s ‘The Ideal Man’ experiment and 1993’s House of Montana Vogue Ball.
