London Fashion Week graced its presence on Somerset House once again in February in a global showcase of Autumn/Winter 2014's trends.
Usually heralded as the fashion week with the most individuality and creative force, LFW once again reinforced its position as a leading fashion capital in a stunning showcase of the best in British talent. From Burberry to Christopher Kane, and Simone Rocha to Teatum Jones, understated luxury and modern geometry took over the runway. Get one step ahead of the fashion in Rtister's top five trends for Autumn/Winter:
Teatum Jones's A/W 2014 encapsulates industrialised silver checks and monochrome prints which are offset by chunky, Autumnal knits. King of the mini-dress, Christopher Kane's origami-esque dresses made a statement in black leather and fur trim, merging art with the female form.
Burberry's folklore inspired collection made us want to grab the nearest blanket and cinch it in with a wide waist belt. Understated glamour and big silhouettes in cashmeres and wools defined Christopher Bailey's Winter.
The Wintry months don't mean that you have to hide away in a camouflage of blacks and greys. Spring/Summer's pastels are toned down and enriched in Royal Blues and Oxblood Reds, as seen at Topshop Unique and Roksanda Ilincic.
Faux furs, leathers and cashmeres galore were seen at almost every show, proving that old school glamour is timeless. Add waist belts to chunky knits with rich leathers to get the look.
From live instagramming from Giles Deacon, to closing Burberry Prorsum, no runway would be complete without those eyebrows sashaying down it. With her own line of handbags coming out for Mulberry, expect to see the British face of fashion on the catwalks for seasons to come.
