{Trend-Spotting} London Fall 2014

London, while the shortest out of all of the runway season always delivers shows with a vibrant punch.  Of course there are the main-stays like Tom Ford, Burberry Prorsum, Erdem and Matthew Williamson, but there are many other emerging talents that are giving them a run for their money.   A few key trends have emerged and the first being prints - glorious prints that were included in nearly every show from Matthew Williamson where there was a strong astrological influence where dresses and sheer chiffon frocks were dotted with star appliques and shooting star patterns.  Designer Peter Pilotto,  known for his spot-on clashing prints translated his signature motif seamlessly onto jackets, skirts and dresses.  A favorite texture from London was the collage effect that looked like fabric was stitched piece by piece creating statement looks as seen at Jonathan Saunders and Roksanda Ilincic.  Florals typically reserved for spring were adapted in an electric way with tulips lining a simple shift dress at Mother of Pearl and over-exposed versions at Christopher Kane, while Giles incorporated calla lilies which provided a gentler twist to the grungier look that it was styled with.  What have been your favorite looks from London?
