London Fashion Week:
Spring 2014 Trends Report

THE Spring/Summer 2014 fashion weeks are still rolling and so do the runway trends. New York was all about whites, 90’s vibes and prints but what did London came with? Florals were a big thing on the catwalk; same goes for pastels and girlish pleats, and shiny and boyish combos.

Catch up with all below.

Garden Party

Feminine floral prints, 3D blooms and botanical applique brought the spring on London’s catwalks. While some designers went classic with bold prints, others riffed on the theme. While Mary Katrantzou opted for jewel encrusted 3D posies, Burberry Prorsum sent on the catwalk a floral trench and Mulberry focused on oversized floral patterns.

Distressed Denim

The frayed denim offered a stylish replacement for the classic denim jeans. Designers such as Marques Almeida, Marios Schwab, Ashish were shy with the trend, bringing denim dresses, tops and skirts.

Bright Pastels

Pretty pastels were the stars of Spring 2013 but they are to stay for 2014. The only difference is more pigments. Prepare for a striking palette of germolene, spearmint and Parma-violet. Burberry, Giles, Christopher Kane, David Koma, Sister by Sibling and Emilia Wickstead adopted this trend at LFW.

Sweet Pleats

The schoolgirl pleats are back with a new look. The classic pleats have been transformed with foiled finishes and ombre'd effects for a more grown up look. The trend was sported on the catwalk at Antipodium, Jonathan Saunders, Barbara Cassola.

The Mullet Dress

There are no party outfits without the catwalk favorite: the mullet dress. Worn alone or paired with a cool sweater this Hollywood dress was seen on the catwalk at Emilia Wickstead, Erdem, PPQ, Temperley London, Antonio Berardi.

Shine Bright

From crystal applique, to flashy fabrics and bling, bling effects, London Fashion Week was a glamorous shiny catwalk. Tom Ford led the pack with a sequin and crystal dress, Christopher Kane was inspired by an iridescent dress, while Topshop Unique woman sported a broken mirror effect dress.
