5 London Fashion Week Trends To Shop Now

Amid some truly awful weather, London Fashion Week returned, admittedly with a somewhat slimmer schedule. While designers like Matty Bovan, Simone Rocha and Molly Goddard were back to show in person, big hitters like Burberry, Alexander McQueen and JW Anderson were absent (although that did allow extra focus on some exciting newcomers: POSTER GIRL, Conner Ives, Nensi Dojaka and Ahluwalia).

The overarching mood of AW22 seemed to be acceptance. LFW designers are over mourning for a life lost; they want the glitz and the glamor back. Fringing, feather trims, sequins and rhinestone embellishments, neon and primary brights, satin, lace and velvet, voluminous silhouettes and ruffles upon ruffles were spotted on a number of runways.

Condensing LFW – a five-day event with 131 designers taking part – into a select few trends is no mean feat. But here are five trends that cropped up again and again and won’t fizzle out before next winter is here. From statement accessories (gloves aren’t going anywhere) to transitioning your cowboy boots for the colder weather (Americana), read on for how to shop some of the top LFW AW22 trends now.

Après Ski Goes Clubbing

If you’ve never wanted to ski, POSTER GIRL, Mark Fast and House of Sunny may just change your mind. Theirs is not the après ski style you are familiar with – gone are the preppy reds, whites and blues, and Fair Isle prints. Nor is it a ski style that is practical. Rather, like the knit balaclava, sports sunglasses and moon boot trends before it, these designers are offering a more wearable alternative for those who can’t jet off to the slopes. AW22’s take on après ski is cooler, grungier, sexier, riffing off the ‘90s and Y2K. It’s made for the club rather than the chalet.

Barely there mini dresses are worn with furry snow boots and puffer sleeve gloves, exaggerated puffer jackets top sheer tights and sequin mini skirts while technical, ski-inspired trousers and jackets are paired with mini baguette bags. The trick is to mix and match ski-inspired pieces with your usual night-out wear for a cool, sporty, club kid vibe. Think cargo trousers or a sports top paired with sequins. Have fun mixing and matching, there are no rules.

All About The Gloves

Last season it was all about hosiery; for AW22 it’s your gloves taking center stage. You can either go simple with block colors like Matty Bovan, Halpern, Eudon Choi and Conner Ives, or play with textures and patterns. We spotted embroidered lace at Bora Aksu, brocade at Paul Costelloe, beaded embellishment at Simone Rocha, football gloves at David Koma and puffer gloves at Mark Fast.
