Even though Burberry was absent, London Fashion Week’s runways were not quiet. The trends that rose to prominence following the five-day, just-wrapped event were actually rooted in maximalism. From room-filling silhouettes and in-your-face colours, designers flood the U.K. capital in fearless fashion for the Spring 2022.
Let’s start by looking at Milan before we move on to the next step.
- BET ON BODYCON
British designers have embraced the bodycon dress as a spring trend, with sexy go-out clothing selling like hotcakes. Mark Fast and David Koma offered clingy cutouts in bold colors.
- CITRUS HUES
London’s designers created tangy warm weather collections with bright yellows, lime greens and grapefruit. This citrusy collection was enhanced with sequins and layers of tulle.
Labels like JW Anderson or Supriya Lele helped many models get caught in London’s netting. They were not wearing traditional fishnets or sporty mesh nets. Instead, they wore mini dresses and skirts made of metallic nets. These nets are popular with customers who want to show off their skin.
- ON ISLAND TIME
After spending a year at home, Rixo and Temperley London have created the perfect holiday wardrobe for Spring 2022. Together with Rejina Hyo and Temperley London Rixo created the perfect holiday outfit for Spring 2022, with tropical florals as well as day-to-night gowns
- TULLE TONED-DOWN
At London Fashion Week, subtle tutus and wispy gowns were part of the Spring 2022 Tule Kit. Although tulle is usually associated with ballet costumes and dramatic eveningwear, designers used this fabric in a more casual way. Molly Goddard used tulle to make cute babydoll dresses and crop tops.
- VICTORIAN CHARM
Edward Crutchley, Yuhan Wang and others raised the romantic ante with their voluminous silhouettes. They also added frilly details such as gold brocade or Broderie anglaise. Fans of Bridgerton can expect more ball gowns for spring, even though they are more Victorian-inspired than Regency.
- WORK LEISURE
A suit is no longer necessary for desk-side style: British brands have reworked the back to work wardrobe by adding comfort and flexibility through knitwear, large silhouettes, and smartened up sweatpants.
