The Leftovers: London Fashion Week FW13

When I first started with all of this, I often overlooked the London season. Mainstream, American fashion magazines were my initial textbooks and for many of them New York and Milan and Paris were the only real players. It wasn't until years later that I began to pay close attention to the London shows. Now many of my favorite designers make their homes there. Erdem and Christopher Kane and Burberry and Mary Katrantzou.

Revisiting the Fall/Winter 2013 London season reminded me again why the city's offerings are often among my favorites.

As always there were themes that ran from city to city. Fur was featured heavily much as it was in New York.

Houndstooth, glenplaid, herringbone, and all of their various cousins were the patterns of choice.

At Sass & Bide

At Daks

At Emilia Wickstead

Suits were still the outfit of choice.

Boxy shapes still dominated.

But another color also made a mark. On the opposite end, winter whites, stark and nearly blinding, were seen in coats and sweaters and dresses.

At Pringle of Scotland

At Markus Lupfer

At Alice Palmer

At Simone Rocha

At JW Anderson

At Temperley London

But mostly London was just London. Full of prints and patterns. Quirky and playful and imaginative in all of the best ways.
