It’s a wrap! London fashion week AW16 is officially over, and what a week it has been! It certainly had a more feminine, glamorous mood than New York’s athletic-themed shows last week. So here’s part 2 of my quick and easy guide for how you can recreate some of the hottest looks from the runway.
The Street Look
Mulberry’s return to the catwalk on Sunday was a high-stakes affair with new creative Director, Johnny Coca taking the reigns on the brand’s first full fashion show for three years, and it was all about tough and pretty street wear. The models stomped along the runway in huge platform shoes tied with criss-crossing orange or yellow ribbons, swinging a Mulberry shopper on her arm, or clutching a mini-bag. The collection specialised in streetwear; a lace bomber here, a studded biker there. Softness came with flowing silks, rose prints and a standout pleated shirt in white. Coca says he was influenced by Shakespeare: “I’m fascinated by his capacity to replicate all echelons of society, from the noble to the nobody. My inspiration is the same diversity and contrast on London streets today.”
I absolutely love these Topshop gingham cigarette trousers, the smart casual tailoring makes them perfect for hitting the shops or going to work.
Style it with the gorgeous Warehouse frill insert blouse to bring that touch of Shakespeare inspired clothing to your closet.
To complete the look every girl needs accessories. I love the Lily Black Deep Embossed Croc Print Bag by Mulberry, but if you are on a budget the next best thing is this ASOS beauty.
