Street style... London Fashion Week
We're a few seasons in with the heritage check trend but they feel anything but tired (see Gosha Rubchinskiy's eastern interpretation). Over the weekend we witnessed how ubiquitous this print has become, making its way onto tops, jackets, trousers, and skirts... anywhere you could fit check. With this season's Burberry show being Christopher Baileys final bow for the fashion powerhouse, we saw the classic print stand out even more with the LGBT pride rainbow make a guest appearance. If you're looking to add some checks to your wardrobe and don’t feel like going full Burberry just yet, try this tartan Comme des Garçons wallet for that extra detail.
We've seen personalised graffiti before, most notably in the form of scribbles on trainers (Vetements x Reebok, Maison Margiela). This weekend the main culprit was leather jackets, etched from top to bottom in each-to-their-own slogans. What was once a school past time has now become a platform for recognisable art—freedom of speech means anything can be addressed and in this current political environment we're sure waves will be made. Check out Palm Angels for a statement tee if DIY isn't your thing.
90s framed eyewear has definitely been on the radar for some time now, with the likes of Rihanna and Bella Hadid leading the way. Considering it poured down for most of Fashion Week and everyone still reached for the sunglasses, it's fair to say they are now a certified accessory come rain or shine. The ultimate cool accessory this time around—and not just for the girls.
Gucci Gang is still rife—les’ we forget—still reigning supreme as the most coveted street style detail. We saw classic Gucci tees layered under tailored blazers and chunky Gucci trainers. Try the new season adidas x Raf Simons Ozweegos for fresh colourways of a now iconic silhouette.
