From Erdem to Burberry, this season saw big names delving into the archives to uncover something special at London Fashion Week SS/18. From nineties checks to saccharine sweet, real housewives pastels, here are the trends to update your new season wardrobes with.
The Check List
From tweed to tartan, brands set to lay their stamp on an iconic piece of British fashion: the check.
Spattered across the runway at Emilia Wickstead, Simone Rocha and Topshop was tweed. Shaking off its ‘workwear’ label, the material took on an ‘it-girl-cool’ vibe with Wickstead’s coquettish spin and form-fitting silhouettes. Keeping in line with tweed’s new, youthful feel, Topshop showcased the fabric in heavy, oversized hoodies – a nod to their streetwear origins. But the name on everyone’s lips was of course Burberry, whose signature check saw its biggest comeback since the noughties with all over checkered coats, bags, shoes and the original Burberry cap.
