London is the shortest fashion "week" of the month (it's only five days long) but it manages to pack in a ton of shows in that time. And we were at most of them! London's fashion is really unique--from heritage brands to the buzzy up-and-comers, we've chosen our 10 favorite collections from the London shows. Click through to see our picks (in no particular order) and tell us if you agree!
Christopher Kane's surprising, unusual and thoroughly creative collections wow us season after season, and this one was ladylike with weird little twists--like those plastic nuts and bolts--that thoroughly won us over.
Christopher Bailey surprised us by showing a collection full of jewel toned-brights and metallic trenchcoats--but it was all still very classy Burberry (we shudder to think what cheap knock-offs of this collection will look like, though).
Restrained disco? Saunders did it to great effect, giving up his signature prints for sequins and metallics.
Mary K. continues her reign as the print queen of London, this time tapping into the images on postage stamps and old bank notes as inspiration. The metallic jacquard pieces in the latter part of the show were particularly stunning.
The designers at Peter Pilotto continue to work magic with digital prints, and they added a little couture twist this season.
The ladylike aesthetic is still there, but completely turned on its head when rendered in neon lace and snakeskin.
Tait solidified his name as one to watch with this futuristic, inventive collection that was strong on outerwear.
Simone Rocha's school girl chic was an enviable mix of sophistication and fun.
Everything a fashion show should be: Spectacle, Gaga, Michael Jackson's costumes paired with Treacy's incredible hats.
