LFW SS23 TREND REPORT

As the capital swarms with some of the countries leading designers and fashion fanatics, London Fashion Week is a time for us to peek into the future season, to see what pieces we'll be investing in for SS23. From legendary British status to exciting emerging creatives, the top brands paraded what's to come for the Spring / Summer season, including the use of delicate fabrics, bold colourings and grunge-y aesthetics. 

 

Sheer Truth 

Sheer LFW trend

Dojaka has cemented her name in the industry after being awards the prestigious LVMH prize just last year. Her signature sheer aesthetic is here to stay for SS23, merging lingerie with everyday wear. The translucent aesthetic appeared in accessories too, where models walked with sheer long-sleeved gloves at the Karoline Vitto show as part of the Fashion East presentation.

Pretty In Grunge

Grunge LFW trend

"Mad, bad and dangerous to know" is how the KNWLS woman is identified, but this season she showed her softer side with more typically feminine silhouettes reimagined with a rebellious grunge aesthetic. Think unravelling, frayed edges, cut-outs and exposed zips.

Deep Sea Blue

Blue LFW trend

This striking shade of cobalt blue was the stand-out colour on the runway this season, making appearances within the collections of Richard Quinn, David Koma and Eden Choi. This statement blue shade was seen in the form of RTW, footwear and accessories on the runways, from classic tailored coats to a full sequinned ensemble, demonstrating that you can be as subtle or as extravagant as your dare.

Denim in Distress

Denim LFW trend

Think bleached, frayed, and stonewashed; denim on the runway this season adopted a used and abused style and was a strong theme for Ukrainian designer Masha Papova's first LWF show. Reimagining denim as more that just jeans, the distressed style appeared on mini skirts, maxi dresses, shirts jackets and more.

Metallics 

Metallic LFW trend

We've all seen the Y2K revival, but the bright, bold and brash metallic offerings for SS23 takes it one step further. From silver platformed heels at Edward Crutchley to all-out sequins and sparkle at Nensi Dojaka and metallic hot-pants at Poster Girl, the upcoming trend is reminiscent of a noughties pop music video.
