London Fashion Week SS17: Highlights of Day 1
Starting out strong
Those who love womenswear with a tinge of androgyny would enjoy Eudon Choi's Spring/Summer 2017 outing that had all the trending, poignant details of this current season. Asymmetrical hemlines made the bulk of the lineup, with an array of bishop sleeves and trailing straps that flapped loosely along as the models walked. On our wishlist is a handful of front-wraparound tops along with an olive green silk dress that had a ruched detailing in the middle.
Colour reigned at Teatum Jones this season—the brighter and sprightlier, the better. Opening the show was a silk slip dress with black lace detailing in beautiful blue hue coupled with floral and fauna prints. That similar motif was present in a handful of looks later, from a parka and bomber jacket to a collared top and bias-cut skirt. A look we couldn't get over was a bottle green leather jacket and matching turtleneck dress—utterly chic and a colour that would flatter most.
Aquascutum returned this London Fashion Week with a dash of provocation that juxtaposed with the brand's signature trenches. Long silk dresses in navy, white and blue botanical prints were an eye-catching lot, but what took centre stage was still a strong lineup of cape trench coats cinched at the waist—evidently the more impressive pieces that consumers would wear in the real world.
