Glass takes an illustrated look at LFW SS20

GLASS presents some of our favourite looks from the recent London Fashion Week SS20. For this season, it was all about the finer details – think everything from oversized pockets and spliced fabrics to sequins and ruching. Crisp cotton fabrics took centre-stage, as the perfect blank canvas to showcase advanced technical construction, like draping and corseting. A play on the unexpected, accessories were surprisingly crucial for this season’s looks. A move towards statement pieces is the way forward.

The most sought-after ticket of LFW, the Burberry show didn’t fail to impress. Spliced tailoring shows the fashion house’s fresh take on classic pieces, while creating a more gender-fluid collection – demonstrating how even the most traditional and established brands are moving in sync with the era of genderless fashion.

Victoriana meets sustainability in Preen’s SS20 collection – utilising leftover fabric from previous collections and even bottle waste in this surrealist commentary on overproduction and pollution in fashion. For clothes, the fashion house didn’t compromise on fun, with an abundance of East Asian-inspired doll-like design.

For his SS20 collection, Quinn drew inspiration from the queen – submerging regal tailored design and full-length gowns in Quinn’s weird and wonderful dreamworld. Bold graphic prints made an impact, with florals, leopard-print, and polka-dots all making an appearance.

In one of this fashion week’s most defining trends, Steve O Smith plants its influence for its SS20 collection in 18th century design. An excess of feather and satin puts Victorian glamour on top.

Playing with structure – or rather the lack of it – Victoria Beckham showcases slim, angle-grazing dresses and wide-fitting tailoring for SS20. Mixing Beckham’s own understated and chic style with a more androgynous approach to fashion, Beckham shows she isn’t afraid to break the rules in her latest collection.
