While last season’s collections emphasised a soft, feminine look, with a focus on frills, florals and pretty pleats, the autumn/winter 2016 collections showed a shift to the darker side of beauty. The spring/summer collections’ age of innocence seemingly disappeared in London, with designers showing a taste for more sultry styles. Femininity and romance were still key, yet there was a sense of nostalgia and gothic glamour. Erdem, Christopher Kane and Alexander McQueen all conjured up a surreal and slightly eccentric look, reflected in 1940s silhouettes, negligee dresses and ruffles. Other trends included the continued penchant for bomber jackets and illusion dresses, often paired for an entirely modern approach. Take a look at the top trends from London Fashion Week autumn/winter 2016 here.
