It’s London Fashion Week right now, but keeping track on each and every runway isn’t easy. Allow YUNG to fill you in on the noteworthy moments so far.

Simone Rocha’s Menswear Debut

Five Things

After making a name for herself for seasonal collections in her usual knitted romantic design language, Simone Rocha may have just stolen the show at London Fashion Week. Now, we know it may be early to make such statements, but her symbiotic relationship between her womenswear and new menswear range is just incredible. Tulle formations worked alongside ribbons that fell onto the floor, while floral motifs created statement looks. Sweater vests were adorned with pearl beads, as were larger-than-life backpacks. Her foray into menswear started with a bang, and you’d be wise to follow her collections from here. 

JW Anderson Took Over A London Casino Arcade

Five Things

For SS/23 Anderson produced a co-ed collection that married high fashion with a sense of humour. The designer sent down a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, as well as bright funnel neck jumpers, puffy red leather shorts, and accompanying leather tank tops in white. Bumper sandals were given a gladiatorial makeover with leather straps, too, as Anderson celebrated his birthday in style. 

Stefan Cooke Made A Case For Sequins, Frills And Trompe-L’oeil

Five Things

Stefan Cook may be one of the most anticipated shows on the fashion calendar. Central Saint Martin’s alumni used his eye for rewriting the rules to create jorts, floor-length denim skirts, as well as boiled wool cardigans, and T-shirts featuring a sparkle of sequins. Canadian tuxedos subverted with skirts completed the collection. Bags, and shoes completed this season’s offerings. 

Phoebe English Returns

Five Things

Presenting her latest SS/23 collection, the designer stuck to her trusted no-fuss aesthetic. Focusing on technicality and functionality the collection is made up of sustainability best practices.
