London Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2015 – Day 4

London Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2015 is almost over and, to be fair, each day felt like a new card. Day 4 is giving us some eveningwear formality that easily transcends into daywear staples. One overriding theme that can be brought out of London is a fresh enthusiasm for color.  Unlike New York, where designers flirted with a darker Fall palette, the Brits are all about happy hues.

Sheer fabrics are also a big player this week. When seen in black or in ombré, they present a couture finish that elevates the luxe factor.  Interestingly, this works best with simpler applications. We love what we are seeing and wouldn’t be surprised if it made it to Paris next.

The sheer chiffon, net or tulle applications also serve as a canvas for embroidery finishes. These run the gamut and really play with everything from graphics to sculptural effects. It’s nice to see designers indulging their creative DNA.

London being London, English eccentricities are at play.  Several designers adopted Pop Art as a reference and played with it in bold and exciting applications.  From literal pop standards to comic strip references and abstracted designs, there were some fun designs strutting down the runways.

Artistic visuals came in prints and embroideries, without any specific treatment ruling the trend.  Silhouettes were kept classic, which will likely allow these looks greater commercial appeal.
