As London Fashion Week is comes to an end, the THEN AND NOW Team recaps on some of our most loved shows and highlights trends we predict will heat up Spring Summer 2014. If you didn’t follow our fashion week diary last week, check out our images captured from the streets of London.
London fashion week started with Fyodor Golan’s sporty, but chic show on a sunny Friday morning. The collection began with a beautiful, bright yellow, trouser suit, followed by a smiley faced top which could not have been a more surprising and fun start to the show.
Fyodor Golan’s SS14 collection continued with sporty theme, featuring further oversized FG logo sweat tops, perfect for next seasons conspicuous branding trend but also stole the opportunity to refer back to their signature feminine pieces like the orchid dress with turquoise and electric pink splashes and fine chiffon draped dresses. The Fyodor Golan show was exactly what it promised. “Electric Children” was full of electric colours and vivacious materials.
David Koma’s SS14 collection focused on graphic, bodycon dresses with cutouts, zippers, peplums and sheer panels. The Koma collection was inspired by Japanese Samurai rules, especially the word “Bushido”, literally meaning “the way of the warrior”. This theme of female warriors, was shown with armour panels and fitted dresses. The collection’s colour palette followed the theme of black, white, navy blue, light blue and nude both on their own or harmonically combined together.
As one of our very own desig
ners on the site, we may be slightly biased but must report that we found the PINGHE SS14 show absolutely mesmerizing! Models were lacquered with black lips and up-do hairstyles and the collection followed a similar monochrome colour palette of black and white, seen on PINGHE peplum jackets and structural dresses.

GILES SS14 was a hotly anticipated and fun show, which saw the likes of high profile supermodels including Kate Moss and Amber Valetta printed to several dresses and Cara Delevingne take the runway in a beautiful black dress and huge bat headpiece. Quirky prints of pink and lilac lips made the collection truly stand out.
