London Fashion Week has a famously vibrant aesthetic and is lauded for its refreshing take on fashion. This year’s London Fashion Week was no different, with plenty of weird and wonderful trends coming to the fore.
Many designers went back to basics with collections that featured stripped-back, refined silhouettes for SS20. Renowned for the Galaxy Dress, Roland Mouret has become synonymous with a figure-hugging, sensual aesthetic. Having focused on the hour-glass shape, the designer took a softer approach to dressing this season with wide-legged trousers, boxy tops and loose-fitting shirts coming to the fore. This was also the case at Molly Goddard, who presented her signature tulle dresses as part of a paired-back collection that showed the designer’s evolution. While volume was used for a softer silhouette, it was appeared at the other end of the spectrum to ramp up the glamour. Puffed-sleeves and tent-like dresses were another huge trend for the London spring/summer 2020 collections and, when paired with clashing prints as at Richard Malone and Christopher Kane, made for maximalism at its finest.
