London Fashion Week AW17

In London, broad shouldered suits and bare shouldered tops put the clavicle area at the top of the AW17 trend list. Molly Goddard and her tulle dresses were talk of the town, while other stand out shows included an epic production from Burberry (of course) and a glitzy protest from Ashish.

Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo AW17 Highlights

At Tokyo, designers offered a form of eccentric minimalism. Staple pieces were re-imagined and everyday combinations were re-styled to lend a harsher, more savvy edge. The street style wasn’t bad either.
