LFW Trend Report: Bright Idea
London Fashion Week never fails to provide stylish food for fashionable thought. This season, the ubiquitous seventies vibe progressed with a daring twist, while bold statement hues came through, peppering Soho's vibrant landscape with even more eclecticism, as LFW's inauguratory Brewer Street season played out. Amongst the retro suedes and pillar box red emerged yet another fascinating trend: winter brights.
Despite being a colour direction, this trend places heavy emphasis on the tactile and tangible. Three dimensional appliqué, embellishment, and embroidery offer an accessible and commercial approach. Moving away from the colour-blocked looks of previous seasons, this new angle prefers luxe sweaters - embellished with colourful accents - bold brushstroke prints, and textural patterns.
Throw on an embroidered kimono, slip into laser-cut shoes, or get creative with some colourful nail polish. However you choose to execute this eye-catching look it's all about decorating a simple ensemble with a bold touch of colour.
From outerwear, to accessories, dresses, and shoes, Bright Idea was embraced across all apparel disciplines on the streets of fashion week. Of particular note were the black backdrops to which the colourful hues were anchored. Whether on a cropped jacket, sporty sweatshirt, or a head-to-toe noir, the vibrant shades popped against a stark contrast.
Accessories are a great vehicle for this trend. Similarly with apparel, you can play with texture, pattern, and finish when executing the look.
Be brave - go for busy patterns with neon touches, clashing colours, and tactile handbags.
For the truly bold, go one step further and incorporate beauty - dive into the hair dye!
