London Fashion Week is back and this weekend the catwalk was rife with quality British designers showing their wares for Autumn Winter 2015-16. Coinciding with the Oscars, this weekend has been a fashion overload for us at B Sunglasses but we still managed to pick a few of our favourite looks from the runway. Check out our hot picks….
Shop Burberry Sunglasses
Described by Vogue as ‘the second chapter in Christopher Bailey’s tale of studious and exotic bohemia’, the Burberry Prorsum show was certainly one of spectacle with a guest appearance from musician Claire Maguire. Quirky patterns, retro patchwork and colourful prints added depth and drama in vibrant blues and oranges, teals and maroons with soft fringing, oversized trenches and empire line being especially predominant. To re-imagine the Burberry trench in the 1960s period of psychedelia and Flower child sensibility is to picture this collection at its’ best!
Shop Paul Smith sunglasses
Designer Paul Smith returned to form for AW15-16 with fine tailoring to boot. As he said himself ‘there’s not a strong them’ yet these exquisitely crafted overcoats, sleek jackets and slouchy trousers are certainly capturing the look of the moment. Clean lines and basic colour-ways added understated drama whilst the occasional pop of mustard yellow, salmon, plaid and check add a slightly more feminine touch to a collection which served as the female counterpart to his men’s collection presented in December.
Shop Tom Ford sunglasses
Prints, shearling, faux fur and tough denims were taking over the Tom Ford catwalk like it was nobodies business and it was clear that the psuedo-animal look was the US designers’ idea of keeping cosy in the colder months.
Vivienne Westwood Red Label
Shop Vivienne Westwood sunglasses
The Queen of Punk Rock style put her signature on the London runway once again with quintessential British style re-imagined through Westwood’s creative eye. Tweed skirts, knitted sweaters, blazers and drape jackets were updated with Westwood’s colourful prints, clashing patterns and romantic cuts for a new wave of preppy style that infuses sequins, tiger print and pink lace. Naturally, Westwood was keen to let her political agenda shine through in terms of her thoughts on culture.
“She really thinks culture is very, very important. If we had true culture we would not be in the situation we’re in. Culture has been replaced by consumption- which is quite a different thing.”
