With London Fashion Week descending on our capital, a swath of dreamlike design and mouth watering inspiration fuels our imagination and leaves us excited about what SS15 will bring and some key boho charged trends for our Solillas boho spirits to look out for. Here are some of our favourites:
Marchesa / House of Holland / Peter Pilotto
Straight from our Balearic hearts, we were cheery to see that the trend emerging from almost every catwalk is playful florals, from delicate posies to dynamic tropics. From Marchesa’s romantic bohemianism, to a fun look back at retro style from London label House of Holland and hedonistic flouro prints from Peter Pilotto.
House of Holland / Whistels / Julien Macdonald / Richard Nicoll
Nothing adds energy quite like metallic. Vying for attention from every flashbulb, metallic textiles came in all shapes and sizes. Ranging from House of Holland’s bold colour blocking to statement accessories from Whistels and glamorous adornments created by Tom Ford. Our absolute favourite has to be when contrasted with soft knitwear and intricate lacework as shown by Julien Macdonald and day-to-night guru Richard Nicoll.
Amanda Wakeley / Fashion East / Temperley London
The purity and power of the mono look was huge last year and is here to stay. From classic tailoring to billowing tactile materials. We love the laid back look mastered by Amanda Wakeley but also the contrasting attitude that comes with emerging Fashion East designers and Temperley London.
Lace and crochet
Marchesa / Bora Aksu / Julien Macdonald
Another trend which resonates with our bohemian roots is lacework and crochet. Undoubtedly feminine yet sometimes revealing this technique adds another layer of interest and can stretch from the glamourous as shown by Marchesa and Turkish designer Bora Aksu to relaxed. We have fallen in love with this playful, sunny design from Julien Macdonald.
