Trust Me, These Are the 5 London Fashion Week Trends We’ll Actually Wear

Over the past five days, British brands have been showcasing their autumn/winter 2021 collections as part of this season’s digital-only London Fashion Week. It looks a little different than usual (there are no spectacular venues, no street style, no audiences whatsoever), but this does mean that the focus is solely on the clothes and creativity. There is certainly no shortage of creative imagination in this city of ours. If I were to sum up the season in one collective theme, it would be “all of the clothes we haven’t been able to wear for the past 12 months.” Think ball gowns, sequins, feathers, wildly impractical boots and skirt suits. These are outfits designed for a post-lockdown London knees-up, and I, for one, couldn’t be more excited.

London Fashion Week goes virtual as Covid bites

London Fashion Week begins on Friday on a virtual format due to a coronavirus lockdown with mainstays like Victoria Beckham shunning the event but others like Burberry embracing the online avatar.

Despite the absence of global celebrities and fashionistas, designers such as Turkey’s Bora Aksu, Britain’s Molly Goddard and Ireland’s Simone Rocha will stream their collections on the London Fashion Week website.

Most of the 94 designers participating in the show, which concludes on Tuesday, will broadcast video highlights of their collections showcasing menswear, womenswear or mixed fashions in an event that is now gender-neutral.

On Monday, the British brand Burberry — known for its tailored trenchcoats — will present its menswear Autumn/Winter collection for 2021, designed by Italian creative director Riccardo Tisci.
