13 Things To Take Away From LFW

It was the week that saw su­per­mod­els, street stylers and self­ies galore de­scend on our cap­i­tal. And we took our Frow-side po­si­tion very se­ri­ously, ded­i­cated as we are to bring­ing you the hottest hap­pen­ings from the run­way and beyond…

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

1 The Show: Burberry Look Edi­tor @GILLYFERG

‘I have a con­fes­sion. I cried dur­ing the Burberry Septem­ber show. I didn’t cry watch­ing The Note­book, or when Brangelina split, nor at my own wed­ding. Yet I cried while Burberry’s Christo­pher Bai­ley worked his fash magic dur­ing LFW. Whether it was the sound­track (by com­poser Ilan Eshk­eri), the lo­ca­tion (Mak­ers House, Soho) or the fact it was the most cov­etable col­lec­tion I had ever laid eyes on… I cried. For me, this was quite sim­ply Burberry’s best show to date. A love let­ter to English his­tory, cus­tomers could live-shop silk py­jama suits, cav­alry Jack­ets and ruf­fles galore. I felt like I was watch­ing a BBC pe­riod drama in real time. Push­ing the “See Now, Buy Now” shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence fur­ther than any brand has dared be­fore, Burberry ex­celled them­selves. While I blubbed.’

2 The In­sta Hit: Tem­per­ley’s Dress

Tem­per­ley Lon­don’s cat­walk was one of the pret­ti­est in town, with the de­signer her­self de­scrib­ing it as ‘a 24-hour Tem­per­ley tribe.’ But there was one dress in par­tic­u­lar that be­came a so­cial me­dia sen­sa­tion thanks to its in­tri­cate embroidery on spun-sugar-light or­ganza. We’d hap­pily wear the above for 24 hours.

3 The Mood: Nos­tal­gia

Be­cause look­ing back is the new black...

GET ready to Clap, the SLO­GANS are Back!

House of Hol­land cel­e­brates its 10th birthday this year, so nat­u­rally this called for a cel­e­bra­tion on the cat­walk. And as well as a cool-girl col­lec­tion of ging­ham and ruf­fles, Henry Hol­land brought back his fash­ion groupie tees. Shop them right now at house­ofhol­land.co.uk.

CROCS Got Cool?

No, re­ally. As one of the most uni­ver­sally de­spised shoes on the planet, it would take a very brave de­signer to de­cide to pair them with al­most ev­ery look. But Christo­pher Kane doesn’t have a faint heart, so he em­bel­lished his Crocs with crystals and made the FROW gasp.

the Bayswa­ter is Back…

...and big­ger than ever. Mod­els car­ried the SS17 spin on the clas­sic Mul­berry bag un­der their arms, which was no mean feat given the size of these things. At least we know we could def­i­nitely fit all our es­sen­tials in one, though, which is good news.

5 Now... Shop The Show!

Ain’t no party like a LFW Top­shop party, but there was one ma­jor change this sea­son: the clothes were in­stantly shop­pable via a strate­gi­cally placed pop-up. Eight­ies in­flu­ences pre­vailed with su­per-high waists and prim chif­fon blouses off­set by sexy slit skirts and silky slip dresses. Most of the col­lec­tion is AW16 and is avail­able RN; the rest is Pre-sum­mer 2017, drop­ping around Novem­ber. Once again, Top­shop’s blaz­ing a trail and where they go, we’ll fol­low…

6 Best In Shoe

From It heels to the fan­ci­est flats in town, be­hold the shoes the style set couldn’t get enough of this sea­son. The big ques­tion is, how did they fare on Lon­don’s cob­bles?

Su­per Soaker Seen at Markus Lupfer & SHRIMPS

Post-hol­i­day swim or fresh from a Bri­tish sum­mer down­pour, there’s no need to stress about the wet state of your locks next sea­son. Why? Be­cause fash­ion says it’s cool.

retro ringlets Seen at top­shop & Bar­bara Casasola

Curls are of­fi­cially trend­ing! Avoid the 80s perm and get the look for your­self by tak­ing a tiny-bar­relled curler and styling each sec­tion in parts, start­ing from the top curl ver­ti­cally down­wards, to help the hair drop more.

mishap hair Seen at erdeem & Preen

Back­stage, stylists swapped brushes for fingers and hair was pur­pose­fully messed up. Great news for girls that al­ways do their hair in a hurry (that’s all of us, right?).

Show ponies Seen at tea­tum jones, david koma & Pringle

Not only help­ing us with hair in­spo for a rainy LFW, SS17 pony­tails are also go­ing to be the style we all wear next sum­mer. We saw ev­ery ver­sion, from sleek to un­done, but our favourite by far were the ones at Tea­tum Jones, where they did a mini-fish­tail plait half way down. Now we just need to learn how to do it…

9 cheat sheet

The beauty trends we’ll be hitch­ing and ditch­ing next spring

Im­per­fect POUTS Are The New Pre­cisely lined

Ladies, liner is out. The lip of the sea­son is soft, feath­ered and per­fectly messy. At Emilia Wick­stead, pros pressed colour on with their fingers for an un­done fin­ish. At Tem­perely, nat­u­ral-look­ing matte lips stole the show.

What to use:

(5) Ro­dial Suede Lips in Mel­rose Ave, £22 (6) Sis­ley Phyto-lip Twist Matte in Kiss, £29

flow­er­sare The New Glit­ter

See ya, sparkles. Next sea­son is all about petals. Gripped or glued,they’ll be ev­ery­where from our face to our hair. Get ob­sessed now.

What to use:

BORA AKSU used (2) KMS California HAIRSTAY Medium Hold Spray, £14.50, to keep the floral em­bel­lished hair in check, and MAC make-up artists fixed dried flow­ers all over the mod­els at Preen us­ing (1) Duo Ad­he­sive lash glue, £10.

rust is The New eye shade

We never thought we’d change our mind about red eye­shadow, but one peek at the burnt cop­per eyes at Top­shop and the next day there we were ap­ply­ing the colour to our lids. So fickle.

What to use:

(3) top­shop Con­tour Wand in An­gles, £12 (4) top­shop Lips in Mink, £8


From the dream gleam at Julien Mac­don­ald to the tai­lored tans at Preen, St. Tropez owned the run­way.

What to use:

(7) St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil, £25, was lay­ered on top of mod­els’ tans to leave limbs with a su­per­sheen-like fin­ish. Per­fect pins like Hai­ley Bald­win? Yes, please…
