London Fashion Week is full of great designers and shows. Since its hard to stay up-to-date with its great amount of shows, we’re delighted to keep you posted. Check out the entire schedule of all fashion weeks here and the complete London Fashion Week schedule here.
Phoebe English is one of the young and talented designers who wants to make the world a better place. How to better start than with using solely reused and certified materials? English is the one and only designer who truly wants to make a change, more than any other designer can claim. When she got to understand the true impact of the fashion industry, she stopped showing for two seasons. Thank God she’s back with a fully sustainable collection.
English’s collection isn’t solely gentle for our planet, but also for the eye. Silhouettes were oversized, colors were soft and models looked cool. All together, the collection looked very timeless which is conscious on its turn as well. Hopefully many others will follow.
Ricardo Tisci knows what he does and is capable of lifting Burberry to a higher level. Just as the army of super models, the clothes were over the top and classic at the same time.
Tisci is able to create new garments. Besides his creativity with scarves, he re-invents classic male tailoring – adding a sporty looking waist belt. On top of this, one model walked the runway while wearing a classic Burberry coat as a skirt. Tisci doesn’t take everything too serious, while staying true to the heritage of the brand. In the end, fashion has to be fun as well.
Christopher Kane’s show at London fashion Week was very innovative. Kane combined athleisure influences, combined with surprising elements and materials. From lace to cotton and plastic: everything passed the runway.
Kane experimented with new shapes and forms in his diverse and innovative collection. Some of the garments had written “ecosex” on it. Kane is known for illustrated garments and his involvement with the environment. When launching a T-shirt collection for charity earlier this year, he emphasized it wasn’t just another line of slogan T-shirts. The same holds for his Spring/Summer 2020 collection. Every piece is very wearable and made to last, entirely in line with Kane’s will to create clothes that will stay in someone’s wardrobe for a long time. According to us, that’s where true sustainability comes into play.
