What to pack for London Fashion Week

If you’re heading to the UK capital for the biannual fashion showcase there, be sure to bring a suitcase filled with great British brands

When the fashion world descends on London for the autumn/winter 2018/19 shows this February the styles gracing the catwalks are all about the colder seasons ahead, yet the styles on the street are bound to look towards spring. Opt to wear pale wide-leg jeans teamed with printed silk shirts, or dresses from emerging London brands Bruta and Rixo, and swap your winter coat for a lightweight yet warm suede trench. When it comes to racing around London’s streets footwear is key; for all-day comfort mix practical crisp white trainers with sensible yet vibrant kitten heels and be sure to take one pair of statement high heels with you, as you never know where the day might take you.

London’s leather scene is going from strength to strength; from industry stalwarts such as Mulberry to new names such as Danse Lente there’s never been a better time to invest in a standout style. Keep jewels bold and oversized, London is no place for subtlety, as Erdem and Pippa Small prove. Finally, the addition of a thick wool jumper from French favourite APC, picked up from its flagship in the British capital, just a stone’s throw from the London Fashion Week venue, is a must; this is London in February after all.
