LFW: brights + quirky prints grow up on day one

As ever, London Fashion Week is an eclectic mix of designers with very different ideas, but on day one we were treated to more vibrant colours and complex prints.

Antoni & Alison’s collection was typically playful and we particularly liked the blown-up digital print details of paper bags, individual sequins, brocade and bows. Despite the fun collage theme the collection was chic and the wispy shift and ladylike shapes exuded a relaxed kind-of sophistication.

Bright and breezy

Love the sequins and paper bag detail

A sucker for paper prints, spots and bows

Frodor Golan kept the tribal print alive with a striking, flowing gown, while Bora Aksu channelled polished peasantry with a folk-inspired dip dye dress in tangerine and crisp floral prints.

Basso and Brooke’s collection was focused on print-clashing with spots, stripes, zig-zags and colours all mashed together. There was a patchwork quality to it and we noted innovative use of scaling of the prints – much like Antoni & Alison’s collection, but to a very different effect.

Full-on clash!

I love these trousers (but with a relaxed white tee!)

Interesting use of different sized prints
