Looks to steal from London’s Spring 2019 runways

London fashion week is the industry’s rebellious sibling: wild, spunky and delightfully unpredictable. From fantastical floral whimsy spun from embellished tulle to ladylike lace rethought with razor-sharp tailoring, the season delivered. Powdery blue emerged as a front-runner for spring, as did the trench. Nowhere did the latter shine more than at Riccardo Tisci’s intensely anticipated debut at Burberry. His vision for the 162-year-old brand rang clear: traditional, but with a refreshing Tisci twist.

Fabulous florals

Behold the blossoms designed to break the internet. From Molly Goddard’s red-dress emoji-inspired ruffles to Matty Bovan’s delightfully major gowns, even wallflowers will wilt for next spring’s offerings. We’re calling Mary Katrantzou’s inflatable floral frocks the new poolside must.

    Animal instincts

    Scene stealers will pounce on Burberry’s fierce head-to-toe mash-up and Ashley Williams’ classic A-line look. For those more sartorially stealthy, JW Anderson’s sleek, shoulder-baring number is proof that walking on the wild side will never go out of style.

      Baby blue

      This pretty hue was everywhere, represented on a medley of silhouettes. From Roland Mouret’s sporty, striped pants to Halpern’s bow-topped frocks, the subtle shade made a surprisingly strong entrance (cue Erdem’s sweeping, embellished ball gown).

        Racy lace

        Designers edged up this often-saccharine fabric, inspiring us to live la vida lace come spring. Victoria Beckham’s take riffed on men’s shirting and patchwork, while Preen by Thornton Bregazzi dressed down sheer asymmetry with a classic flat sandal. At Christopher Kane, strips of sparkles sewn throughout simply dazzled.

          Polka palooza

          This season connected the dots in the most extraordinary way. Breakout star Rejina Pyo saw spots on matching hats and skirts styled with eye-popping neon, while Richard Quinn whipped his up in larger-than-life bows. At Burberry, Riccardo Tisci paired polka dots with socks and pumps. Spot on.

            Brand new Burberry

            Riccardo Tisci’s appointment as chief creative officer at Burberry was highly anticipated by the fashion crowd — and did not disappoint. The former Givenchy designer (who created both the gloved gown Kim Kardashian wore to her first Met Gala, as well as the dress she donned to wed Kanye West) made some flashy upgrades to the iconic British brand. Big changes among the 134 looks he sent down his debut runway included a new logo and a refresh of the label’s iconic trench coat — now trimmed with gold chain links. And worn by Kendall Jenner, naturally.

            Word up

            Breakout designer Ashley Williams’ sparkly catchphrase hairpins caught It girls’ attention last season. (Selena Gomez was recently spotted wearing her “UGLY” barrette in NYC.) Williams revealed more hair-raising clips for spring, like “TECHNO,” “COSMIC” “WOMAN” and “VIRGIN.”

            Designer birthdays

            Victoria Beckham celebrated her label’s 10th anniversary by showing her collection in London for the first time, with legendary model Stella Tennant opening the show. So iconic. So posh! Meanwhile, Jenny Packham rang in 30 years as a red-carpet go-to for A-listers like Angelina Jolie and Kate Middleton by moving her glamorous presentation from NYC back to London.
