The Best Looks From London Fashion Week F/W 2020
Peek on the latest trends, the up-and-coming designers, and the best of the best of LFW season.
Voluminous, ambitious, and absolutely grandiose. London Fashion Week showed no signs of stopping when it comes to producing designs that echo royalty. For Fall/Winter 2020, designers presented an entire spectrum of individuality and innovation. We saw no signs of subtlety with Richard Quinn, Christopher Kane, and Erdem, they took it all out in the woods with the most bizarre pieces for F/W. JW Anderson, Victoria Beckham, and Burberry took their signature pieces and provided looks that pushes the fashion envelope further. These London-based designers gave us visionary looks, out-of-this-world executions, and of course, the true meaning of chic.
It would be a bummer to come out of LFW without feeling inspired. These top ten looks for F/W 2020 left us overflowing with pattern-frenzy and color. See the best looks of the season and get enlightened on where the designers took their inspirations from:
For F/W 2020, Anderson brought party-chic womenswear to the next level. With his larger-than-life sleeves, bubbled chest pieces, and knitwear hybrids, these were clear representations of mature luxury gone wild. It was a subtle nod to maximalism but tweaked in a sophisticated JW Anderson spell.
Is it even a Burberry runway without the Burberry plaid? We know that the statement might feel a little bit old but there’s no other brand that can send down patchworks of plaid, pristine tailoring, and wearable beiges than Burberry. Riccardo Tisci's runway show for F/W 2020 was certified #CarbonNeutral. The entire collection that walked down the mirrored runway were ethically and sustainably made for the the future. What’s not to love about Burberry?
The essence of the Victoria Beckham brand is to create collections that are elevated enough for the catwalk but wearable enough that you can function in the clothes in real life. Victoria Beckham lives true to her words and creates the womenswear of our dreams for F/W 2020. Models were sent down the runway in the most electric thigh high boots that we might actually need for our 9-to-5 dressing. Victoria herself admits that putting that funky touch made her collection a lot more empowering and something women can relate too. It was a series of ready-to-wear pieces we will for sure lock our eyes with as soon as they release for F/W.
The 2020 F/W collection of Simone Rocha was simply inspired by birth, life, and loss. It was the most visual and empathetic collection we saw for LFW. Laces, satins, knits, and pearls cascade the runway with ease as they peacefully define the complexity of life and beyond. It was poetic, real, and transpiring.
Erdem Moralioglu brings back nostalgia from his early years in his most intimate collection yet. The Erdem F/W 2020 collection was a careful blend of memory and visions of the future. Pieces from the collection embodied geometrics, glitter, and towering head-pieces. Erdem wanted the audience to resonate with his childhood and his dreams of becoming something more than just a middle-class kid. He was deeply reminded of his roots and made sure to capture each milestone in each piece.
The pinnacle of every Christoper Kane collection is his ability to manipulate shapes into his garments. For F/W 2020, Kane played around the shape of a triangle. He later found out himself that its the most powerful and strongest shape in nature. For Kane, the triangle was more than just a shape. He incorporated his visions of femininity and the Adam and Eve complex in this collection producing the most gender fluid pieces and incomparable detail.
Rejina Pyo’s fashion-filled cement runway was straight-up political and empowering. The edginess of the show began right before the models hit the runway as the show opens with an aggressive roar of revving motorcycles. The brand’s 2020 F/W co-ed collection featured all kinds of badass and wearability. It sort of felt like a rebellion minus the provocative hate statements on the clothes. Leather, structure, and sheen were clearly present on the runway. Pyo personally feels that this collection was made to looking into the silver lining amidst the troubles we face on our everyday.
16arlington pushes the envelope for womenswear with the brand’s fabric manipulation. The collection stars a leather ruched gown that felt like the model’s second skin. 2020 is looking femme and stronger with its F/W 2020 pieces. You can find almost everything in the collection from power suits, modest yet visionary dresses, and of course the leather treatment.
Vivienne Westwood puts the punk in rock as per usual with yet another collection for us to swoon over. The brand’s signature unbothered fashion stars in LFW for F/W 2020. The collection was something the brand has been known for since day one. Clothes served as shapeshifters and identity creators, you can tell that each piece bursts with personality.
Starring as the LFW wild card, Tommy Hilfiger takes over Tate Modern with an exceptional runway show. It’s no question that the F/W Tommy Now collection was inspired by American and British culture fusions. The runway did not shy away from neons, brave all-whites, 2020 athleisure, and of course the classic Tommy Hilfiger tees. Wherever the brand will head to next, we will for sure be there!
