It might not be the frenetic, fast-paced weekend of year’s past, but over the last few days, London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2021 has taken place through a series of virtual events and small, in-person press previews.
Leaving behind the spectacle, the hoards of attendees and the street-style circus we’ve grown accustomed to, this new take on fashion week has acted as a reminder of what the event is truly about: the clothes. From Burberry to Victoria Beckham, Molly Goddard to Simone Rocha, British brands proudly displayed their latest work, proving that innovation persists even through uncertain times.
For some brands we saw a heightened importance placed on the concept of escapism, creating collections filled with bright, cheerful prints and whimsical silhouettes. While elsewhere we saw practicality reign with garments sure to stay in your closet for seasons to come. And of course, it wouldn’t be LFW without a few reimagined Burberry trench coats.
