If there are two trends you should be aware of for the Autumn/Winter 15 season, it’s retro and florals. Both themes were big at London Fashion Week, from the clothes to the set design.

Roksanda presented a colourful collection for Autumn/Winter 15. Pinks, oranges and blues were the star colours of the show, making for an opulent palate. Silhouettes were long and elegant, with a focus on the waist. This marks the first show since the designer recruited her first CEO in December 2014, as part of her plans for global expansion.

Looking for some oversized sunglasses for Autumn/Winter 15? Look no further than Jonathan Saunders. Statement specs were paired with outfits of clashing colours and contrasting patterns, resulting in an optimistic, vibrant show. This collection is proof that Saunders is well on the path to become a designer of international standing since receiving the support of an investor. 

​White formed the basis of the Peter Pilotto collection, the canvas for strong, graphic prints that were inspired from the motifs of board games such as Ludo and Snakes & Ladders. The playful theme aside, shapes, colour schemes and patterns all came together in a nod to the Seventies. 

Burberry Prorsum combined both florals and Seventies motifs in a bohemian collection which featured suede fringing, shawls and patchworking. And as with all Burberry shows, it was all presented to a star-studded front row, of course.

Autumn/Winter 15 displays evident nostalgia for flowery summer months and the Seventies…With Milan Fashion Week up next, the upcoming few days will reveal whether the Italian labels also chose to look back at times gone by.
