After a colorful London Fashion Week, it’s time to take a look at the color trends that topped the charts. Designer’s had fun this season, with rich colors and metallic tones taking charge in many of the collections. Let’s take a look at the most popular colors from this year’s LFW.
Rusty reds and earthy browns were everywhere this season, as fashion starts to become more environmentally conscious. Duru Olowu’s clay colored suiting was made for traveling by train through mountainous surroundings, while Edeline Lee’s dirt colored gown could be seen at a gala event. Eudon Choi and Margaret Howell worked with stony grays, reminiscent of rocky cliffs on the coast of Ireland, while J.W. Anderson’s worked with sage to create a dress perfect for picking spices from an herb garden.
Emulate the Earth with these fabrics:
Passion was a primary color this season, with fiery red setting many collections ablaze. Antonio Berardi’s red and relaxed gown is perfect for learning how to salsa, while Gareth Pugh’s stiff suit would be better suiting for sitting in a smoking lounge. Huishan Zhang made passion palpable with a red sweatshirt, and Marques ‘ Almeida created the ideal beach cover for those who like to stand out. PReen by Thornton Bregazzi channeled their inner Hester Prynne with a red dress that featured a strap stating “A” for “adulterer.”
Rich metallic neutrals were featured in many collections, Antonio Berardi displaying many of them with a muddled brown and gray suit. Ashish used reversible sequins for a gold and black matching skirt set, while Halpern’s sequined dress used black, white, and brown. Sharon Wauchob proves that coats are much more than protective with a vibrant gold raincoat, and Ralph & Russo used a glittering brown for a stunning cocktail dress and jacket.

Edeline Lee’s pale blue dress is perfect for a sophisticated evening out, while Rejina Pyo’s blue skirt is ideal for a day at the office or night of cocktails.
