It’s that time of year again to start looking towards what could be happening further through 2019 as the top designers from around the world gather to show the latest trends at fashion week!
As always, we’ll be reviewing each show and curating a roundup of the trends that we think will be the ones worth investing in for AW19!
Spotlight on: London
The spirit of London Fashion Week is always a lot more playful than the other shows, and this came through in the way that many designers chose to play with texture in their ensembles. Mismatched fabrics bring a fun, youthful element to otherwise refined garments which is definitely something that we can see hitting the highstreets later in the year!

All of the Fashion Week shows this year made use of bright pops of colour, and London was no different. Here we saw an array of designers punching vivid, warm colours throughout their work to really bring some exuberance to each collection.

Knitwear itself is not an usual thing to see in Autumn/Winter but the designers have given us a fresh perspective on the seasonal staple by taking them into a quirky and modern interpretation of the trend.

Although ruffles and frills did feature prominently on the London catwalks, another trend that seemed to run parallel was the use of huge statement sleeves. The silhouettes that these create are so dramatic and eye-catching, we definitely predict that the highstreet will start to generate more wearable versions of this trend in the Autumn!

We’re all about casual, comfy yet chic styling here at LV so we adore this trend of oversized and relaxed fit garments that we saw everywhere at Milan Fashion Week! These types of garments are so easy to style and layer up, it’s a cinch to put together a comprehensive Autumn/Winter wardrobe with oversized pieces!
