The Sharpest Street Style Looks From London Fashion Week SS22
Influencers offer a masterclass in statement-making style.
Reemerging from lockdown, editors, buyers and style influencers turned up at physical shows to support homegrown brands like KNWLS and Nensi Dojaka. Despite a condensed schedule this season, attendees showed enthusiasm for the event by dressing up in expressive outfits and over-the-top accessories. A Vivienne Westwood denim bustier and matching jeans, both featuring an overall painting print, were paired with ski sunglasses. Equally eye-catching, a patchwork Marine Serre sweater was accessorized with silver chains and a small Telfar Shopping Bag. The perfect look for transitional weather, a shearling-trimmed coat was styled with flared pants and lug sole kicks.
Other fashion eye candy came in the form of a Prada terrycloth bucket hat, the popular Bottega Veneta Original sunglasses and kitschy, Y2K-inspired beaded jewelry. New Bottega handbags from the Pouch clutch to the Mini Jodie continued to be favorites among the fashion set, while in footwear, Amina Muaddi‘s pumps and Nodaleto‘s chunky heeled boots seemed to have reignited interest in going-out shoes.
Celebrity sightings at LFW also offered plenty of inspiration. Dressed to impress, Kehlani, musician and now globe-trotting front row star, repped London talent Robert Wun in a sleek, black leather ensemble — a hooded bolero and a pleated dress — from the designer’s Fall/Winter 2021 “Armour” collection. Kelsey Lu and Alexa Chung both wore looks from Simone Rocha‘s FW21 collection — the former in a billowing frock and platform boots, and the latter in a peach floral dress layered underneath a puff sleeve leather crop top.
