In spite of the diversity of runway proposals, there are various trends present across most of the designers that exhibited their creations at London Fashion Week (LFW). Here’s a recap with the broadest fashion themes for spring/summer 2016 from the Londoner catwalk.

The new ‘it’ fabric: lace
Seen almost overall, beautifully-crafted lace tops, dresses and skirts in both dark and light hues that are sexy and exude femininity.

Knitwear as undeniable basic
It was mostly spotted in monochrome total looks or in form of retro tennis knotted knit vests, as the ones showcased at Topshop Unique. Paul Smith selected laddered knit that was wisely fused into masculine suits.

Sleepwear steps into daylight
Short-sleeved notch-collar shirts, slip dresses and monochrome or printed silky blouses and pants will give a dreamy touch and coziness to your daily outfits.

Mainstay: mesh
Less fabric, more skin. This seems to be one of the mantras for next summer, and it’s partially thanks to the further presence of mesh skirts and dresses in designer collections. House of Holland showed them with bug-patches and combined them with sports socks.

Ladies steal gentlemen stuff
Masculine suits and tuxedos are paired with more feminine-related garments and fabrics like silk and lace in order to create beauty visual contrasts. The gender merge in fashion continues!

Holographic outerwear
We simply fell in love with the super cool and shiny bomber jackets that Hunter Original has in-store for the next spring/summer.

Key details: nylon straps & knots
Nylon straps and knots act as decorative elements embellishing dresses and jackets. They avoid boredom within minimal looks. Besides, narrow knotted leather belts reinforce the feminine waist.
