10 Things That Happened at London Fashion Week

One thing was clear from London Fashion Week Spring 2017: fashion isn’t Brexiting anytime soon. Strong collections from established and emerging designers attest to the long line of talent that shows in the UK. Storied houses like Burberry implemented new practices like gender-blurring designs and see-now, shop-now strategies. Breakout designers like Molly Goddard and Marques’Almeida continued to find new ways to deconstruct and reenvision styles for the runway. Then there were the front rows full of celebrities and the great street style that just gets better during Fashion Week.

Here are some of our favorite moments and the most memorable trends from LFW Spring 2017.

1. Charlotte Olympia’s dance show

Known for her cheeky accessories, Charlotte Olympia put on a sexy show to celebrate her spring collection, inspired by the Copacabana Club. Fruity props and Carmen Miranda tunes filled the Sheraton Grand Park Lane Hotel’s Art Deco ballroom in London. The ’40s-themed dinner club setting perfectly set the stage for Olympia’s kitschy new platforms and stilettos, sure to put a spring in the step of wearers and a smile on admirers’ faces.

London Fashion Week: Up in the Attic with Erdem’s Gorgeously Bohemian-Glam Dresses

The senses are so intricately tied together; sounds conjure memories of our favorite cities, taste stirs images of the best holiday gatherings, and scents sometimes call up the most emotional, meaningful remembrances of all. This seems to be something Canadian-born Erdem Moralioglu is captivated by, because his Monday runway presentation was a full sensory exerpience.

In an attic-like space in Central London, the lightest hint of cedar wafted around the room. It was something you were aware of immediately, but couldn’t quite place straight away—possibly because you were distracted by all the Old Hollywood-esque vintage and antic furnishings and gorgeous lighting filling the room. But then when the woody essence settled in and fully presented itself to you, it did so with a full narrative: A wooden chest, lined with velvet, filled with the most precious and beautiful things and tucked away for safe keeping.

Only here, for fall, Erdem opened it.

Get the Look: Street Style at Burberry and Erdem

London Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street StyleGimlet-eyed Crystal Nicodemus is busy snapping street-style starlets during Fashion Week. Here are her photos to inspire you for next season (or this one), and some wardrobe picks to help you get the look.

London Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style

Jenny Bernheim is back for another style round, this time in London! Jenny has a trendy, feminine aesthetic, and she looks perfectly put together. The modern overall cut is mega popular this year, and this one-piece is chic with a hint of Seventies flair. Love the lace turtleneck (trend alert!) and oversized wire sunnies. A ladylike studded bag and simple stilettos complete the outfit.

Street Report: Kerry Outside Erdem

Kerry’s back and she means business! Not everyone can pull off a fanny pack, but Kerry Pieri is handling the tricky trend with aplomb. Of course, luxe materials and a premium design help take this piece out of the mall and into the realm of street style.

Kerry’s pink pleated midi skirt is a top trend, in both color and cut. This look is full of modern femininity, but has fun touches that add a little quirky edge.

Street Report: Jane Outside Erdem

As the fashion news director at Glamour, Jane Keltner de Valle is responsible for steering trend and news coverage for the magazine. I’d say they are in good hands! Jane has classic taste and stays true to her personal style.

I like how Jane adapts trends to suit her level of refinement. Today’s look is a beautiful blend of texture and trend. Lace and mohair are the ultimate in feminine texture, but Jane makes them look interesting and fresh.

xo,
Crystal Nicodemus

Runway Rundown: Erdem

Of all the shows we’ve reviewed thus far, Erdem‘s might be the most classically fall, with its rich hues and luxe fabrics from velvet to jacquard. Femininity and attention to detail lay at the heart of creative director Erdem Moralioglu’s design sensibility, and this season didn’t disappoint. We love the floral beadwork, graphic cutouts and sheer insets, all modernizing his timeless silhouettes.

See all of our Fashion Week coverage.
