London Fashion Week has wrapped up for another season, with its new home on the Strand showcasing everything we can expect to see from Britain’s designers for next Autumn/Winter. As ever the collections ranged from the experimental and eccentric to the classic and contemporary, with a lot of man-repelling in between. There were lots of looks (and ergo lots of trends) to come from London Fashion Week AW17 – a good sign that designers are following their own lead, rather than others’ – but these are the five that we’ll start adopting now.
Ever since street style stars starting wearing their shirt sleeves big, long and covering their manicured hands, the sleeve has been given a new kind of stardom that it hasn’t had for quite some time. This season it wasn’t just about the shirt sleeves or long, stretched hoodies – they came big and puffy at Ashley Williams, fluffy and detachable at TOGA and sheer at Daks.
