Favourite moments from London Fashion Week AW18
British’s heritage brand Burberry delivered a show that delivered a strong political message and had a touch of royalty. One of LFW’s most discussed news was that Christopher Bailey (CEO and Creative Director) of Burberry will be stepping down from his post after being in charge for Burberry’s design for 12 years making this his last collection. Christopher Bailey is without a doubt the man responsible for making Burberry relevant in the 21st century (him, and of course his team). And this See Now / Buy Now collection is at the peak of this relevance. With references to bootleg culture he added the text “Burberrys” on several pieces. Despite seeming very bootleg alike, then it also pays respect to the original name of Burberry, namely Burberrys of London.
As a political message Bailey raised his voice in the LGBTQ debate by added the rainbow colour in the nova check, and making striped jackets, shirts, and even the cape seen above. Lastly, the London runway had a royal guest. The Danish prince Nikolaj walked down the catwalk in an oversized overcoat and silk shirt (top picture).
J.W. is a wonderboy. His designs may not always be filled with extensive glamour, but they are always so very distinctive and wearable. Picking out just a few pieces that would stand as my favourites was hard. However, these two looks in particular caught my eyes as they are both playfully elegant in terms of silhouettes, but still so muted that they would fit well into an everyday scenario.
