London Fashion Week AW16

So, we're half way through Fashion month, and I'm already looking forward to AW16.

I've spent the last day pouring over the shows from London (New York is already up here) and, I can't wait to see what Milan and Paris have in store. 

I always look forward to London Fashion Week for many reasons. One of the main ones being that a couple of my favourite brands show during the week. 

Here are my favourite shows from LFW. Go grab yourself a cup of tea, and enjoy!

Mulberry
More than two years have passed since Mulberry showed their collection on the catwalk. With Emma Hill's departure around the same time, the brand didn't fill the position for a while after. Enter Johnny Coca - previously the accessories designer at Céline. With the new collection having similar pieces to the what we're used to at Mulberry - think gorgeous outerwear with military style detailing. The accessories were different to what Mulberry usually design which I'm not saying is a bad thing - think a little edgier.

Pringle of Scotland
I have a huge love for knitwear. If I could I reckon I'd wear it all year round! Pringle of Scotland had me gasping with joy - the collection was gorgeous with various takes on knitwear - think topstitched bodice details in felted wool on dresses in which the flatness of that wool was contrasted with the texture of angora and mohair. High street brands take note...I want some of this for AW16!

Alexander McQueen
I'm sure there were a fair few others that squealed with delight when Alexander McQueen announced they were showing their AW16 collection in London. It was a homecoming in one way and, I hope it stays in the city where the label was born. The collection was stunning and full pieces that every girl wishes they could dress up in.

Whistles
The high street brand that is fast becoming my favourite - Whistles AW16 doesn't disappoint. Rich textures such as tweed, velvet, bouclé and mohair ran through the collection. Whistles had definitely thought about their existing customer when designing the pieces - clothes with a timeless appeal but with a light touch of current trends. I've already started a wish list...
