Trends from LFW SS16

The whirlwind that is London Fashion Week has past... The "Fash Pack" swiftly moved on from Soho to Milan and Paris.

And although we have been slightly preoccupied fawning over all the amazing street style looks from this seasons Soho spot - fresh in our minds are the stand out trends for Spring/Summer 2016.

With over 70 designers from fresh new talent to industry pros it is definitely difficult to pull just three top trends from the 5 days of LFW.

But we gave it a whirl...

Coloured lace as seen at Bora Aksu and Christopher Kane and Burberry.

Lace has been on the radar for the last few seasons but for Spring/Summer it's been suped-up with a splash of colour, and as far as we are concerned the bolder the better! Bora Aksu colour clashed pinks and orange with flower head pieces, Burberry toned the colour down with pastels. The acid neon brights at Christopher Kane were show stoppers!

X marks the spot as seen at Anya Hindmarch, Paul Smith and Simone Rocha.

Symmetry featured across the board (or across the chest!) this season and the use of the letter X was particularly prevalent among some of our favourite designers. Graphic X prints at Anya Hindmarch were almost hypnotising, while Paul Smith and Simone Rocha showed suspender versions.

Statement sleeves as seen at Erdem, Giles, and Roksanda.

As always the Erdem show was graceful and stunning this season mixing hints of folk, gypsy and gothic victoriana into the perfectly feminine collection, but what tied each dress together was the use of statement sleeves. Roksanda also featured bell sleeves while at Giles printed shirts and jumpsuits were given gathered exaggerated sleeves with shrunken lengths for a peek of wrist, designer Emilia Wickstead also showcased apricot medieval inspired sleeves in her SS16 collection.

And that rounds up our top three trends from London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016... Watch out for our LFW hair trends feature coming soon!
