LFW Street Style Spotting

Paris Fashion Week maybe be kicking into gear and adding the finishing flourish to fashion month, but we're still in LFW mode and stealing the best trends from the street style kings and queens of the moment.  Take a look at the key trends we're loving....

HEAD TO TOE FLORAL

Florals are consistently at the top of the trend list and these fashionistas stepped out in full flower power attire and proved why at LFW last week. The two piece trend was amped up a level, as traditional William Morris-inspired prints were spied on trouser suits galore. Christine Barberich (left) looked chic from top to bottom in a floral Mother of Pearl pantsuit at the Jonathan Saunders show.  Kate Foley (right) from Opening Ceremony took to the streets in a kimono-style floor length dress scattered with flowers, complete with chunky waist belt. No matter what the season, we can’t get enough of feminine florals!

TWO TONE FUR

Ditch your generic brown fur coat for this winter, as this season it’s all about the playful two tone fur pieces. Last year’s bright and bold fur trend is back for seconds, as spotted worn by Made in Chelsea star Rosie Fortescue (right).  She oozed sass at LFW last week in her sky blue and faded grey furry number, teamed with suede knee highs.  Tracey Cheng (left) was seen rocking a super fluffy red and pink striped oversized coat from House of Holland.  It seems real fur is definitely out and faux fur is very firmly in. Many LFW attendees substituted the real deal for colourful and eye-catching faux pieces, creating a furry frenzy on the streets of London.  We’re in love! 

THE APPLIQUÉ BOMBER

Seen all over the catwalk at shows from the likes of Tommy Hilfiger and Hunter this year, the appliqué bomber jacket is the hottest transitional piece as the colder weather creeps in.  The bomber is shaken up in a colourful new twist; playful appliqué characters are placed onto the jacket to create fun fashion pieces with plenty of personality.  This ‘too cool for school’ look was adopted by many of the LFW attendees last week.  Fashion blogger Bryanboy (middle) screamed effortless chic in this cobalt blue satin bomber with illustrative appliqué faces stitched onto the front panels.  

PAINTERLY PRINTS

One of our favourite street style trends at LFW; brushstroke brights were spotted worn by a number of fashionistas last week.  Paint splashes combine with sketchy motifs to create a fun and playful print trend.  We at Peachy think that Japanese designer Yoshi Itu (right) might have popped along to LFW straight from his art studio, as he showcased his Matisse-inspired brushstroke coat complete with paint smudges on his face.  Daria Shapovalova (middle) also illustrated this trend perfectly when she attended the Burberry show in a Belinski coat covered in paint splodges and scribbles.  Pass us the crayons, we want to get involved!
