The British capital is the second stage of the fashion frenzy. As always, the land of his gracious majesty is home for the parades of the young guard of designers alongside the big names of English fashion establishments. Eclectic trends could be noticed on the catwalks of this year’s edition of London Fashion Week.

One such example is represented by Simone Rochas, whose romantic-punk style represented the first day’s discovery. TheChantillylace and the silky chiffon created an atmosphere of melancholy and fragility strangely merging with the futurist cuts of a masculine spirit. The Irish young girl, who presented her first collection two years ago, has already defined her style. Like Stella McCartney, Erdem or Roksanda Ilincic, Simone Rocha revisited the English rose. But, she put her personal print on this English archetype of femininity by adding a very energetic touch of punk.

As expected, Moschino brought new surprises for the house’s fans. Indeed, a Moschino collection is not worth of its name without the unusual collection of accessories. In the hair, the models wore large taffeta knots and on their heads, cowboys hats which hid their eyes. On their feet, they had black platforms accented with golden studs. The black and white chromatic duo is chosen by Rossella Jardini for her graphic and geometric prints. Despite the season, all skirts, dresses and coats are short. The Moschino woman of next year’s cold season is a carefree girl who loves to party and to feel feminine.

Another surprise came, on the second day, from Acne where the consensual dark lines of the previous collections gave way to a fine work playing with blue pastel tones, powdery pink and tobacco. The difficult length of under the knee pants is perfectly mastered. The silhouettes are refined and everyone admired the stylish perfecto skirt and sublime tobacco leather jacket.
