London Fashion Week was all about the details, as designers draped their models in everthing from feathers to knots and ruching. Let’s take a look at the top details from London Fashion Week.
Designers clearly wanted their collections to pop this season, adding a 3D element to many of their garments. Anya Hindmarch detailed a simple dress with a labyrinth of tufts, while Ralph & Russo used spikes on a leather jacket for a hard look. Both Roksanda and Markus Lupfer used smaller, 3D flowers for a botanical vibe, while Edeline Lee used one larger flower for an O’Keefe-esque style.

Designers of a feather flocked together at London this year. Ashish left a line of feathered trim down the fron of a simple white and blue dress, while Erdem created an entire dress out of feathers. Huiushan Zhang utilized feathers for some funky shorts, and similarly, Osman used feathers for a fantastic skirt. Marques ‘ Almeida’s used feathers for added movement and drama on a beautiful pink gown.

Designers were all tied up this season, with knot detailing featured in many of the collections. Edeline Lee used four well-placed knots for a symmetrical set, while Marta Jakubowski simply placed one knot in front of an elegant white dress. Emilia Wickstead’s beautiful knotted blouse is perfect for a fancy dinner, while Margaret Howell’s knotted button up had a boy scoutish charm about it. Isa Arfen used knots for more than just detailing, as they seemed to hold together the top of their matching set.

The details stood out this season, as designers used metallic to draw attention to their garments. Antonio Berardi’s raincoat with metallic accents is sure to stun once rained upon, while Gareth Pugh’s metallic arms add an interesting effect to an already powerful suit. Temperley London and Ryan Lo both used white with metallic accents, giving a snow-like appearance, and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi used pink with a metallic accent.
Add some attitude with metallic accents:
Ruching reigned supreme this season, as designers added them to every garment imaginable. Antonio Berardi fashioned an entire blazer out of ruching, and Ashley Williams tiger blouse features ruching right up the center. Emilia Wickstead and Emilio de la Morena added ruching strategically throughout the garment, while MM6 Maison Margela’s dress is ruched all the way around.
Feel regal with ruching:
