London Fashion Trends Fall 2014

Today’s post will be the next installment of my Fashion Month series, on fall 2014 trends we say during London fashion week.

The overall mood that London conveyed was a more global perspective, with loose, relaxed silhouettes similar to those we saw in New York.

Knitwear and outerwear seems to be a reoccurring trend this month as designers are moving further away from constricting and structured looks, but rather opting for cocooning layers. Capes and caped details were the main outerwear styles.

That being said, the fabrics also continued to be plush like in New York with furs and velvet. These fabrics were used all over or as placement detailing.

Silhouettes are also very unstructured and relaxed, but still a very luxe feel given to the garments.

The one trend from London that was not similar to New York was the use of collage, applique and embroidery to make more of a three-dimensional garment as opposed to one dimensional. This, I noticed, carries forward to Milan in some of their collections.
