London PAP FW2018

Feb 28, 18 London PAP FW2018

London has confirmed two biggest trends of the fall 2018: to a GLITTER of everything, which can sparkle on the New-York fashion week, the 1980s are added. Embodied in BROAD SHOULDERS of empowered woman with a conceptually new attitude towards her sensuality (in fact, Marc Jacobs has clearly based on this concept the whole collection, over exaggerated the silhouette. Thus, once again, New York had launched it first).

The major events so far were the ultimate show of Christopher Bailey who is leaving Burberry after 17 years. The most autobiographic collection, which recounts ”symbolic revisiting of the place of his fashion awakening…,all the teen-tribe styles that rolled through British street culture in the ‘80s and ‘90s”. Glance to the ‘80s once again. Collection full of the symbolism of gay pride with rainbows everywhere

…and Richard Quinn’s show. Young and highly promising Count Richard Quinn’s become the first recipient of Her Majesty’s British Design Awards. Elizabeth II in the first row sitting next to Anna Wintour made a huge buzz but the cloths itself deserves special interest. Inspired by English floral prints, with some looks ‘assembled’ of classic silk scarves and others, knife-pleated asymmetric and cloud-like floral puffer coats and jackets. Light, fresh, New, ‘well worthy of the Queen’s stamp of approval’

Talking about the silk SCARVES: they seemed to be one of the arising trends of the upcoming fall. Designers use this piece of accessory as a fabric to create all sort garments: here even silk lining are made to be seen

FRINGES are largely presented in fall season shows. Mostly beaded they can also be leather strips, denim or any other thick threads

The deconstruction is not about to easily give up its once again gained positions: decentralized cut’s progressively been replacing by colors asymmetry. Designers propose two contrasting colors in one look, be it socks, thigh-length boots or one trouser-leg (just as they wore in the middle century)

The last but not the least idea comes from Christopher Bailey – the real ‘muse’ of this London fashion week. What if we put our sweaters (in any season ‘the must’ of fall/winter clothes] inside out to show the beauty of usually invisible, yet, it should be beautiful to show)
