The second stop on Fashion Month's whirlwind four-city tour, London went beyond the call of duty. This season's shows managed to pack a youthquake of sorts along with a customary, experimental punch. Confectionary colors, sinister skins, and stitched together prints kicked it all up a notch, as you'll see, when you click through our slide show of the week's most exciting trends.
Theme: Like, Totally!
Molly, Tiffany, Heather, Heather and (you guessed it) Heather all took London's runways for spring 2014. These gals--tongues placed firmly in cheek--are totally about the all things pretty, pink, and primed for a good time.
Theme: Rebel, Rebel
Spring 2014 offered up a new crop of London collections that were so unapologetically good at being bad, we couldn't help but take notice. Oil-slick finishes, cobwebby crochets, and hardcore studs were totally unstoppable.
Consider a cool citric spectrum that's equal parts vibrant lime and coy mint. Shaken, not stirred.
Color: Calling Your Blush
The tones you wanna smudge on the apples of your cheeks pop up all over London's runways for spring 2014. Mixing makeup tones into one ensemble delivered the most complexly feminine stories.
Material: Plastica Fantastica
Synthetic finishes brought to mind the crinkled luster of cellophane wrappers as well as the sterility of hazmat suits. Buff to a shine.
Print + Pattern: Jail Break
No longer relegated to prison togs, these two stripe motifs bring a confident rhythm to spring 2014's simplified silhouettes. You won't have to read between these lines--unexpected tones, intriguing textures, and vertical orientations make a beeline to the front of this pack.
Detail: Modern Magpie
The season's patchwork motifs are a bricolage of eclectic prints and textured fabrics. From sweatshirts to slip dresses, no shapes are off limits.
Styling: Neighborhood Watch
The busybody that lives next door can be oh-so-shady. Why, you ask? If you had such quirky-glam sunnies, you'd be throwin' some major shade too.
Key Item: Above and Beyond
The season's breakout must-have, the slip dress, tries on intriguingly translucent, sheer layers. See what lies beneath.
Key Item: Candy Moto
The season's newest moto-jackets drive candy-colored and playfully-printed details forward. How sweet it is!
