LFW day 3: Uniform + military style

The military trend was massive last, last winter and it looks like it’s coming back again…attention!

Unique’s show was surprisingly grown up – it must be the influence of Kate Phelan, ex-fashion director at Vogue who is now installed in Topshop Towers.

No gimmicks, glitter (sigh!) or animal print, every piece – even the velvet jumpsuit described as a boyfriend scarer by some- was super wearable. I’m especially chuffed as Topshop seems to be growing older with me!

Herringbone, sophisticated layers, shearing and hooded coats were de rigor as well as leather trousers. Kilts are back! Military coats were more heavy-duty and longer than before in luxe, warm material. Check out the A-listers too.

Super FROW: Alexa, pixie, Poppy Delevigne, laura Carmichael, Nicola Roberts + Jameela Jamil

Love this utilitarian velvet jumpsuit

Kinda grunge meets military

Paul Smith’s jackets were lighter weight, shorter and more equestrian – or the type that higher-ranking officers might choose!  The geek-chic glasses toned down the military-inspired tailoring.

Finally, Acne’s achingly cool collection featured vinyl, exaggerated silhouettes and heavy-duty belts. More here.
