The best of British at London Fashion Week

Posted on by Beyond Bespoke

London Fashion Week saw the most romantic collection to date from Alexander McQueen, while Mulberry returned to the catwalk with a new It Bag, the Clifton. We’ve rounded up the best of British runway style, from embellishment, ruffles and embroidery, to oversized coats and military jackets

A patchwork of patterns and textures drawing on creative director, Christopher Bailey’s, love of “musical references”, from Seventies glam-rock shiny metallic lamés and lurex tops to bright sequinned floral mini-dresses and snakeskin detailed outerwear. Burberry

A fairytale meets pirate inspired collection, with military style jackets, ruffle cuffed blouses and tattoo inspired appliqué dresses among designs – all this with a hint of Hendrix. Temperley London

This collection drew inspiration from Paul Smith himself, revisiting his old design roots with a new stamp. The runway featured traditional paisley patterns alongside new shawl fur collars and gold buttons. Paul Smith
