LFW AW20: All the couture-worthy looks that warrant a double-take
Hot off the heels of New York Fashion Week, the fashion crowd moved across the pond for the second leg of Autumn/Winter 2020. Unlike the Big Apple where modern femininity is always the trend du jour, London has always had a (good) rep for its eccentricity. Aside from schedule regulars including Christopher Kane, Burberry, Victoria Beckham, and more, the emerging designers such as 16Arlington and Dilara Findikoglu also put on some of their best shows yet.
Some of the highlights of the season? Matty Bovan's curtains-but-make-it-
fashion couture ensemble, JW Anderson's big coat energy, and Halpern's exuberant take on glamour, but the most talked about collection of the week goes to Richard Quinn's fantastical extravaganza. Models started the show in head-to-toe spike-embellished get-ups that reflected his signature hint of S&M influence, before more romantic looks—voluminous dresses with a fluffy feather headpiece, and pouf-like mini dresses peppered with delicate florals—gave the line-up a softer and dreamier contrast. Other noteworthy looks include Molly Goddard's frothy tulle and Fair Isle pairings, Emilia Wickstead's head-turning take on monochrome dressing, and Huishan Zhang's column sequinned dress with cascading ombré feather details. L-o-v-e!
