London Fashion Week 2016: Our Top Looks from Alexander McQueen, Antonio Beradi, Sophia Webster and Temperley London

FashionWeek

The just concluded London Fashion Week saw a lot more creativity than the New York Fashion Week.

In series of posts, TSS will be dishing out our most striking 2016 collections that graced the runway.

Alexander McQueen

This season marks the first time Alexander McQueen would showcase a collection at London Fashion Week since 2001.

There were a lot of lace trimmings and printed flowers and butterflies adorning a sheer black fabric. The scantily clad threads almost resembled lingerie, bizarre for a winter collection.

Antonio Beradi

Berardi combines contrasting fabrics and textures for a contemporary, romantic finish. In one case, a heavy chain mail vest hangs over an airy Chantilly lace gown, whilst elsewhere lace is treated with rubber or else added to a biker top. Whilst leather lacing reveals the flesh beneath, careful additions of a corset or modesty peplum ensures that nothing is exposed, creating an air of mystery and sensuality.

Temperley London

Alice Temperley for her autumn/winter 2016 collection had an enthralling line-up of ultra-feminine dresses, embroidered capes and military-style jackets.

Evening gowns adorned with sequins, and tiered dresses featuring intricate sheer elements, whilst wrap dresses with revealing slits were paired with studded ankle boots. Corduroy suiting included a cropped jacket with embroidered trim, worn with high-waisted trousers, an exaggerated ruffle blouse and velvet boots.
