Fashion month may be a regularly scheduled biannual event, but the timing never fails to surprise me. It hits me slowly and suddenly, and before I know it, I’m into it. So you can imagine my surprise when I realized that London Fashion Week had already passed. And with it came a surprisingly consistent message from the designers who showcased their collections there. Their designs represented that a new era for Britain has arrived.
Last season, London Fashion Week attendees were shocked to realize the Queen had died just days before the events. Celebrations were halted and parades continued in tribute to the Queen. After many “changing guards” later, we have reached London’s first fashion week since.
One show that truly marks the change that has been happening in London since last fashion week was none other than Burberry. News of Daniel Lee leaving Bottega Veneta and joining Burberry left everyone waiting to see what he would do next. His work sent a clear message. Patterns reflected traditional British crests, but with an update: think head-to-toe plaid, oversized fur hats that resemble those of the Queen’s Guard, and traditional tailoring paired with t-shirts. graphic t-shirts.
The 2023 update to the traditional British wardrobe looks exactly like what I’d love to wear this fall and winter. One thing the LFW designers had this season was fun. Below, find the seven trends they presented that are set to take over next fall.
