London Fashion Week kicked off on Friday, and while we were at home watching the Emmys, designers including J. W. Anderson and Mulberry were showing their Spring collections to the likes of Kanye West and Kristen Stewart. London is always the more eye-catching and creative week of fashion month (which also includes Milan and Paris), but this season there was also plenty of grown-up fare on the runways with which to fall in love.

Richard Nicoll’s mini skirts and sheer maxis were inspired by the 1964 film L’enfer by Henri-Georges Clouzot while at J. W. Anderson a runway school girl inspired the quirky, pieced-together looks. But the overarching theme of the first half of London Fashion Week seemed to be a surplus of color and the incorporation of new materials and textures.

We were particularly smitten with Jonathan Saunders’ sorbet-hued collection (which incorporated the designer’s distinctive all-over prints with a palette of colors inspired by South Beach). Knee-grazing full skirts contrasted with sheer blouses and pajama tops to create quite the pretty picture.
