London Fashion Week 2024

London Fashion Week recently concluded, marking four decades of its existence. Listed below are my top five favorite collections that debuted this past week.

1. David Koma debuted their Fall 2024 Ready to Wear collection that consists of mostly black and white garments with a dash of brown, light blue and one red ensemble. The brand incorporated its signature feather statement piece throughout the collection to create an effortless movement for each look. In addition to the relaxed silhouettes, the collection also featured tight leather ensembles with fur collars. According to Luxferity, Koma was inspired by a lighting exhibition “Thin Air” and translated the effect of light into the construction of his garments.

2. Contrary to other designer brands, Erdem's Autumn-Winter 2024 show presented a variety of colors with various shades of red and green in addition to sticking with the classic black and white color scheme. According to Kendam, the fall collection was a tribute to Maria Callas, a renowned opera singer who rose to fame in the 20th century. Inspired by Callas’ elegant style, Erdem incorporated an array of peacoats and tiny-wasted dresses to capture the unique essence of the late performer.

3. Richard Quinn's Fall 2024 Ready to Wear collection also highlighted a whimsical black and white theme with a mix of strapless and ball gown silhouettes accompanied by dainty bows and oversized flowers. According to Kendam, the brand drew inspiration from vintage Hollywood with a modern twist in its demi-couture collection. Aside from black and white, the collection beautifully transitioned into a formation of floral-patterned garments.

4. Simone Rocha’s Autumn-Winter 2024 collection nicknamed “The Wake” was influenced by Queen Victoria’s wardrobe, specifically her mourning dress. According to Harper’s Bazaar, Rocha decided to set the show in St. Bartholomew the Great, a chapel in London, to have the audience resemble a congregation and create a sense of togetherness. The collection featured a spectrum of designs including black and nude sheer ensembles embellished with jewels and completed with fur coats.

5. Lastly, Burberry hosted its Winter 2024 runway show inside a massive tent in Victoria Park. The collection featured a compilation of earth-toned garments with the brand’s signature plaid design along with presenting a new take on their equestrian knight logo. Creative Director Daniel Lee drew inspiration from Burberry’s archived pieces rather than from outside factors, maintaining the brand’s true essence.

Milan Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week have recently also concluded so be sure to check out looks from those as we finish with the Autumn-Winter shows for this season.
