Following hot on New York’s heels, London revealed what it had to offer for SS15. Here is our round-up of some of the best shows at London Fashion Week.

Burberry Prorsum

For SS15, Burberry Prorsum took inspiration from nature in a collection entitled “The Birds and the Bees”. Denim jackets were worn over delicate dresses which were ornamented with tulle bows. Light fabrics were layered creating an airy feel, whilst a profusion of colour and pattern made for a bright, eye-catching collection. 


Erdem
Erdem also explored a botanical theme with a collection where foliage prints dominated, echoing the plants which lined the catwalk. The designer’s take on SS15 was a dark one, primarily using deep greens, teals and blues. Dresses of lace and sheer fabrics were counter-balanced by a few very simply cut, structured pieces. 

 

Richard Nicoll

There was more to Richard Nicoll’s dresses than first meets the eye: as the catwalk was plunged into darkness, they revealed themselves to be glow-in-the-dark. With slouchy tailoring, simple shift dresses and wraps, loose shapes were layered for a nonchalant but elegant feel. Nicoll used a muted colour palette consisting mainly of pale blues, lavenders and greys combined with metallic for a very light, ethereal collection. 
 

Christopher Kane

A firm favourite of the London fashion scene, Christopher Kane once again proved he knows how to create beautiful collections. The mixing of textures was key, in a collection that ranged from leather trousers to full tulle skirts. The designer took inspiration from ropes, with twisted cords becoming a recurring motif throughout the show. With Kane, knots just got elegant.
