London Fashion Week SS14 Round Up: I Want Candy!
I may have had to sit out this London Fashion Week as I was working, but I've been keeping a keen eye on Instagram (how good was Grazia's live coverage via Instagram!) and watching the LFW shows unfold hour by hour over the last few days and seen one big trend time and time again. It looks like the candy coloured, ladylike chic, lace and sheer layers trend that we saw all over the SS13 and AW13 catwalks is here to stay for SS14. So invest wisely in your autumn wardrobe and see those candy colours look fresh until spring!
Burberry's entire collection was candy coloured and embellished with layers upon layers of structured sheers, creating a dreamy display of ladylike, sweet wrapper encased model army. The pastel shades of pink, blue and yellow were the key colours and made my mind up that I *need* a pink crombie coat this winter.
Someone who always mixes the pretty with the kickass is Christopher Kane and I loved his shiny and sheer collection, with a gorgeous mix of candy colours and metallics. These parma violet hues, statement sweatshirts and fluffy foiling was very addictive, like a beautiful sweet wrapper. Just how much do I want the 'PETAL' jumper and prim skirt combo?!
This is my favourite trend from the shows, but what was your favourite trend from London Fashion Week SS14?
