Insta-Critic: Saturday in London, The Kookier Side of FW

While you were at brunch this weekend, a host of England’s fashion finest sent their new collections down the runway. A new week has begun (Monday, groan) so let’s make it a little brighter with some exciting fashion from across the pond.

Sibling

Sibling’s collection, simply called “Woman,” was full of Debbie Harry references (complete with tufted black mohawks) and neon-colored fair isle.

The next big hair accessory.

J.W. Anderson

An all-out homage to the 80s in a season where the 70s have reigned supreme. Think kooky color combos (even Christmassy red and green), oversized suedes, slightly bigger shoulders–and even a wolf sweater.

The good news is you can get this look for less if you go vintage.

Simone Rocha A luxe collection in print and texture, Rocha’s clothes were heavy on blacks and velvets with rich brocade (a bolder print which has been popping up around LFW).

Fit for a modern-day queen.

House of Holland

Always one to make some noise, Henry Holland put his models on a conveyor belt–no walk necessary. The collection was unsurprisingly bright–filled with clashing tartans and brightly striped shearling.

Gareth Pugh A darkly patriotic collection, Pugh sent a collection that marked his tenth year, filled with dark black drama (think a Mongolian lambswool coat), chains, and most notably, St. George’s cross, red, and painted onto each model’s face.
