The Biggest trend of the London fashion week S/S 2019 season in print is playful stripes and floral.

Alice Archer- Romanticism through flowers
For the London fashion week spring summer 2019 she brings a romantic collection, verging on sentimental, with a palette inspired by the vast blue sky, green fields and pink dress worn by the protagonist in Andrew Wyeth’s painting “Christina’s World,” and white, which appeared as broderie Anglais in long and short incarnations of a prairie dress embroidered with black-eyed Susans.
Archer’s flair for embroidery was also at work in stems of fluffy-headed yarrow that appeared throughout, beginning with a soft pink silk pantsuit that belted at the waist and includes a mint green kimono and in a pretty off-the-shoulder blush satin-tiered gown.
Alice Archer was inspired by the author’s rich descriptions of nature, which she channeled into a collection abloom with embroidered wildflowers in silhouettes that lightly hinted at the period during which the books were published.
Virginia bluebells looked lovely backed by blue cotton in a drawstring waist jumpsuit with a Pierrot collar, and the ice green trousers that came with a matching midriff-baring bodice top was a nice balance of innocence and sophistication.
The eveningwear, which is usually a standout, fell slightly short of the mark. The mint gown with a satin bodice and tulle skirt would have been better all in tulle, and the top of the lilac two-piece ensemble looked a bit rudimentary by comparison to Archer’s previous efforts.
Palmer Harding- Peplums and ruffles
The design duo used dichotomies throughout the collection to reflect this type of twisted personality.
There were oversize, androgynous shirts with lingerie-inspired slip top peaking under; tailored jackets softened with ruffles and peplums, and harnesses layered over languid printed dresses.
“There’s some dangerous elements like harnesses but also ruffles to camouflage [her darker side],” added Harding.
Other highlights included ultra high-waisted trousers and structured jackets with large cargo pockets, that evoked a powerful, military-inspired image.
There was plenty to choose from in this collection, that was filled with easy-to-wear, everyday separates — but their brand’s strength continues to lie in their signature shirting and the skilfull ways they pull them apart and piece them back together.
Alexa Chung- Inspired by Travel
Inspired by travel, she dreamed up her own travel company “A.C. World Travel Inc.” and transformed her show venue into an airport lounge. Models walked around the tricky-to-navigate arrivals and departure halls, sporting outfits that referenced “an array of incongruous destinations.”
There were businesswomen in smart ivory suits; girls ready to party post-flight in their crystal-embellished minidresses and others who put comfort first in logo tracksuits and printed pajamas.
There was also a whiff of the Mediterranean with a series of crocheted looks, accessorized with baskets and sparkly jelly shoes, as well as some safari references in the form of bandanas, large cargo pockets, and suede trenches.
There were plenty of desirable pieces, from the baby blue patent trenchcoats to the cute barely there slip dresses and Chung’s signature boiler suits, that ticked all the right trend boxes and will surely prove to be retail gold.
Burberry- Luxury and Modernity
The collection took in a sensual, old-world luxury for the London fashion week S/S 2019. You will find a soft leather pencil skirt, a lineup of pleated print skirts, proper pussy bow blouses and jackets threaded and tied with silk scarves. The look was a more street looks, a lace slips with long deconstructed sleeves and short, halter-top trench dresses worn with white socks and mary jane flats.
Tisci's favorite Bambi came on shirts and trenches while snippets of phrases from Shakespeare, along with punk, pop, and historical references appeared on T-shirts and jackets and coats.
He put a cool spin on the trench, slimming it down, cinching it with a thick leather corset belt for the opening look, or piercing its edges with little gold hoops or studs. Elsewhere, he added little built-in, button-front panels or a patchwork of silk scarves.
Overall, his women’s offer outshone the men’s, with the classic and tailored portions looking sleeker than the off-duty clothes, which took in a deer spotted shirt that wondered aloud “Why Did They Kill Bambi” and a lineup of roomy suits slashed T-shirts and animal-patterned trousers.
Perhaps the strength of Tisci’s more formalwear is an indication that street, by Tisci’s own admission, has gone too far. Interestingly, Tisci referred to the casual and street-tinged sections of the show as the “young parts.”
Victoria Beckham- Movement and relaxed
For the collection, Tennant’s opening look for the London fashion week S/S 2019 was a languid, optic white suit, with an obi buckle belt setting up the tone for this collection that was all about ease, from the relaxed long dresses and trousers to the flat boots. no painful or twisted ankles here to the textured knits, which came as long wraparound dresses or were layered under tailored jackets.
Beckham said she wanted to play with contrasts, too, and to that end cinched a flowing white Greek goddess dress with a bright blue rope belt and slipped a pink one around the waist of a red ribbed skirt with a handkerchief hem.
Lace-edged slipdresses were layered over roomy, boyish flat-front trousers while delicate scalloped lacing peeked from the deep V-neck of a roomy black trouser suit.
The styles at the show were built for movement, which as a mother of four with a burgeoning business valued last year at 100 million pounds.
David Koma- drama. Peplum and Ruffles
Koma put his own, minimal, all-out sexy spin on the drama, ruffled skirts and polka dots associated with the dance, refining ruffles into structural peplums and translating dots into sheer spot mesh or shimmery plexi embellishments, which winked along the edges of shoulder seams, cutouts, and hemlines.
Carmen Amaya, the late Romani flamenco dancer who would wear trousers in her performances to emphasize movement, was the inspiration behind the lineup’s terrific trousers. Also calling to mind styles worn by matadors, they were cut high on the waist, with a soft flare created by split hems.
His palette, as always, was on the noir side, freshened by white and lilac. Pieces in neon yellow or bright green looked better head-to-toe rather than paired with or trimmed in black, which made those looks seem a bit labored.
A lineup of literally dazzling gowns, the first he has shown on the runway, looked great in ombré plexi chainmail that faded from green to platinum or from black through to violet and green.
