With the likes of Christopher Kane, Richard Nicoll and the latest offering from Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey on the schedule, day 4 of London Fashion Week was set to be an exciting one, and it didn’t disappoint.
At Christopher Kane models sashayed down the catwalk to a soundtrack of House of the Rising Sun in a Frankenstein-inspired collection that cleverly combined fluid fabrics and textured materials. Pretty primrose yellows and soft salmon pinks were perfectly blended with creamy whites and toughened up with biker jackets and bomber styles that will be sure to please the fashion crowd.
The likes of Dita Von Teese, Jeremy Irvine, Tali Lennox and Harry Styles then made their way to Hyde Park for the Burberry Prorsum where the catwalk was filled with a cacophony of colour in every hue imaginable. Silky satins and metallic leathers gleamed in the light while sequined skirts and iridescent feather cardigans added extra wow-factor. But the pièce de résistance was the full troop of models marching down catwalk in a rainbow of trench coats.

On a smaller scale but no less exciting, Richard Nicoll sent a serene collection of oh-so wearable pieces with mesh detailing and light layering down the Institute of Contemporary Art catwalk. Soft, striped jumpers teamed with city shorts were utterly desirable, as were the Manolo Blahnik muted grey block heel sandals. We want it all!
