Right now, London S/S 20 fashion week—which took place last September—probably feels like a distant memory. It was back before social distancing was a part of our daily vernacular and the term face mask was only used in relation to skincare products. When the thought of crowded rooms filled with editors and influencers seemed completely normal, and hugs and handshakes were just regular friendly greetings.
However, despite the fact those runways feel a world away, many of their lessons are more relevant today than ever. From colour predictions to clothing trends, September’s collections acted as a crystal ball, enabling us to understand what would be most in-demand over these last few months.
In terms of colour, the runways were filled with a mixture of calming sky blues and shades of shocking pink. (You can thank JW Anderson for the former and Jacquemus for the latter.) Of course, as you’d expect with any summer runway, crisp white and sandy beige were also heavily prevalent, seen across voluminous dresses, linen shirts and tailored trousers.
While less popular on the runway, lime green has also proven itself to be a contender for shade of the season, as several members of the fashion set have been seen sporting the summery hue. So whether you’re looking to update your existing colour palette or simply feel the need to be in the know, keep scrolling for five shades we have loved this summer.
