When Burberry revealed a strategy shift in September 2016 to showcase a collection at London Fashion Week that customers could instantly shop, it’s safe to say the fashion world was dubious. For decades, Fashion Weeks globally had unveiled collections that weren’t available to buy for months to come (so print journalists and buyers would be able to plan their issues well in advance) and going against the grain by dropping the traditional fashion calendar was always going to be a risk. While long-standing and very traditional in some respects, the British fashion house is known for being innovative – and in an age where we shop from our phones and crave immediacy, innovation pays off.
From established designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Oliver Spencer, to up-and-coming ones like Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY and Liam Hodges, there are a lot of great names on the London Fashion Week Men's June 2017 show schedule.
The existence of London Fashion Week could be under threat if the UK fails to come to a “comprehensive agreement” with the EU, a new Brexit report has warned. The report, published by the House of Lords EU Internal Market Committee, detailed the potential impact of Brexit on the non-financial services sector. With over 880,000 jobs and counting, it determined that the British fashion industry played a key role in the growth of the economy.
Fashion and politics have always had a rather tumultuous relationship. Think back to a few years ago when Karl Lagerfeld co-opted feminism, creating a women-only protest on Chanel’s SS15 runway that was slammed for its superficiality. Since Donald Trump’s election, designers in all four fashion capitals have jumped on the political bandwagon.
With only Paris left to go, the AW17 Fashion Weeks are almost over. And though clear-cut trends are still yet to be seen, one colour has been appearing again and again on the runways. Burgundy first popped up in New York at Kanye West’s Yeezy show and has since dominated the collections of Versus, Marc Jacobs and Roksanda. The shade, which references military garb, has been used on a multitude of utility wear as well as more elegant dresses and vinyl pieces.
Plenty of brands have adopted the see now, buy now model first started by industry giant Burberry. In layman’s terms, that means you can buy any look as soon as it’s stepped off the runway. No more waiting for six months until it hits stores. This season, the likes of Topshop Unique, Christopher Kane and Tommy Hilfiger (in collaboration with Gigi Hadid natch) have made their designs available to buy straight away.
Marc Jacobs’ AW17 show was one of the most diverse in New York. The Fashion Spot‘s biannual diversity report has just been released, revealing what really happened on the AW17 New York runways. Overall, 31.5% of model castings featured non-white models which is an increase (albeit a small one) compared to last season.
