It’s no small secret that London Fashion Week is the week I look forward to most during Fashion Month. While I appreciate the sporty side of New York, the glamorous side of Milan, and the sophisticated side of Paris, I feel like London is where designers take the most risks and work with the most innovative materials. Burberry, for instance, is always leagues ahead of the game when it comes to technological adaptation and marketing, while brands like J.W. Anderson and Giles always offer thought-provoking challenges to the status quo. For Spring/Summer 2016, color was London Fashion Week’s biggest story, with collections blooming in a Technicolor array of hues, patterns, prints, and embellishment. While designers followed through with their versions of some of the season’s most popular trends — the “cold-shoulder” cutout, relaxed jumpsuits, and asymmetrical tailoring — they also took the opportunity to embrace new directions and a variety of impactful new techniques.
