LFW SPRING 2014: The Trend Report

lfwtrends

Good morning, my sweet readers! It’s PFW day one but for us, for us is LFW Trend Report day! After this LFW edition, I can finally confirm that London is my favorite fashion capital. New York’s swag, Milan’s glamour and the drama in Paris don’t hold a candle to the excitement, innovation and surprise that always happens in the English capital. There’s always new talent, trends and styles get revamped, renewed and reinvented every season. I’m not getting overexcited here, I’m just writing it as I saw it. As I was working on the spring 2014 trends, I couldn’t help but feel giddy and happy. Pastels? Sweatshirts? Flowers? Bombers? Pink? Those really are among my favorite things in the whole wide world. Are you ready for 14 fabulous trends from the always exquisite London? Let’s start!

pink

Pink is the stongest color this season and for the coming one, the London designers decided to make it stick around. But it’s not your ordinary pink, it’s perky, it’s pretty, sweet and above all, cute!

  4. Burberry Prorsum

flowersFlowers are to Spring what leather is to Winter. But for Spring 2014, the florals are getting the texture and graphic treatment. Love them already? I do!

  1. Mary Katrantzou
  2. Matthew Williamson
  3. Christopher Kane
  4. Jonathan Saunders

candyjPastels are not to be confused with candy hues. Candy hues are slightly brighter, a little more alive! LFW was all about this sugary colors, I can’t wait to see what Zara will come up with next season.

  1. Burberry Prorsum
  2. Fashion East
  3. David Koma
  4. Emilia Wickstead

sheer

Forget about mesh panels and subtle translucence. Sheer for Spring means business! With the right coverage underneath, you will be able to show everyone your legs under a completely sheer skirt or dress.

  1. Burberry Prorsum
  2. Simone Rocha
  3. J.W. Anderson
  4. Mulberry

matchy

They are really making it easier for us to dress each morning. A pair of embroidered shorts with a matching top? Pajama trousers with pajama shirt in the same print? That will be a big trend this Spring!

  4. Pringle of Scotland

sweats

Dressy sweatshirts have been around for a couple of seasons now (thank you Nicolas Ghesquiere for that). But leave it to the LFW designers to make it even prettier and even dressier!

  2. Antonio Berardi

  4. Erdem

green

Mint was huge a couple of seasons ago, now it’s time for a less blueish and more yellowish shade of pastel green.

  1. Emilia Wickstead
  2. Peter Pilotto
  3. Temperley London
  4. Matthew Williamson

glossy

Yeah baby, PVC wear is back in the form of trench coats, skirts and even shift dresses. Thought you were daring by wearing a pair of clear heels? I dare you to wear a plastic dress next Spring, I will!

  1. Felder Felder
  2. Moschino Cheap & Chic
  3. Fashion East
  4. Burberry Prorsum

bikers

This is the perfect trend for someon like me, someone who loathes black but loves the shape of biker jackets. Next season we will be able to find them in floral prints, pastel leopard jacquard, lightweight white fabrics and more.

  1. Antonio Berardi
  2. House of Holland
  3. Richard Nicoll
  4. Eudon Choi

patches

The more patches, the more interesting the look. The runways were filled with elaborate constructions, beautifully made and beautiful to look at.

  1. Preen by Thorton Bregazzi
  2. Michael Van Der Ham
  3. Jean- Pierre Braganza
  4. Jonathan Saunders

bad girl

Not to be mistaken to this Fall’s trend, grunge. This is more transgressive, it’s about sexing it up a notch and darkening it a whole lot more but always staying chic and fabulous.

  1. Felder Felder
  2. Tom Ford
  3. KTZ
  4. Mark Fast

bombers

And this is where I clap and jump around! My favorite piece of outerwear has always been the bomber and for Spring 2014, us bomber lovers will have a wide selection to choose from!

  1. Richard Nicoll
  2. Jonathan Saunders
  3. Sister by Sibling
  4. Pringle of Scotland

mullet

If the mullet hairstyle has become fashionably acceptable (the better version of it), the dress had to have its moment too. As you can see in the Peter Pilotto image, the mullet dress doesn’t have to hit the floor from behind. The back can be slightly longer than the front hem.

  1. Antonio Berardi
  2. Jean-Pierre Braganza
  3. Peter Pilotto
  4. Julien McDonald

fluffy

Usually a popular style for the colder seasons, but think Spring in a fluffy, pink skirt or a nude dress with a feathery hem! J’adore!

  1. Moschino Cheap & Chic
  2. Sister by Sibling
  3. Giles
  4. Fashion East

What was you favorite trend of the bunch? I’m all about the candy shades, the bombers, the pink, the pretty bikers and pretty much everything I just wrote about today. I LOVE LFW!

Sweet kisses…
