LFW: What to expect for SS16
With London Fashion Week coming to a close, we thought it only right to look back on some of the best frocks, just in time for the Fashion Weekend at the Saatchi gallery. We are in for quite the treat for SS16, with to-die-for prints, delicate details, sculptural elegance and a colour palette that perfectly compliments the summer.
1. Build me up buttercup – Erdem, Burberry, Roksanda
This gorgeous shade of yellow was seen across many a designers collection. The lemon hue made the ideal compliment when teamed with delicate ruffles, soft silhouettes and intricate stencil like cut-outs, showing just enough skin.
2. Drapped in lace – Bora Aksu
Following the AW15 lace obsession (trust us!), SS16 is not a lot different. Although winter will see a more Gothic romance, with deluxe fabrics taking the lead. Think romantic velvet, a wonderful collective of glam rock and vintage glamour. The Spring Summer will see a very different take on lace. With a strong focus on layers and structure.

3. Bright eyed and bejeweled – Zandra Rhodes
This collection has already made us start thinking about NEXT summer. These bright oranges and contrasting tones have got us wishing the winter away before it’s even started!
4. With a nod to nostalgia – Simone Rocha
There is no denying there has been a definite romantic bohemian influence this year at LFW and certainly we will see more of that in the months to come. What we love about this collection most is the quirky twist on historically inspired and vintage looking pieces.

With beautiful bold prints it is clear the 70s vibe will continue into Spring Summer 2016. But don’t panic if you are not the biggest fan of bright colours. We saw designer’s such as Simone Rocha and…. opting for a softer palette, with pale pinks and of course those fail-safe shades, such as black, white and cream.
One thing we can be certain of next Spring Summer is the collections are diverse, meaning whether you are a into frills and girly eccentricity or if you like to keep it more timeless and simple, there will be something to suit.
