Could this be the new slanket?

It was a short but sweet-as-ever stop-off in London for Fashion Week, as we saw even more exciting designs come in from some of the industry’s major players. As is often the case, the collections were an explosion of color, complete with charming details and quirky touches.

As far as seasonal trends go, we’ve seen some very strong ones, including several reiterations from last year (we couldn’t take our eyes off the fur-lined Crocs at Christopher Kane) as well as many continuations on themes from NYFW, such as off-beat color palettes and pointed-toe shoes. But we also spotted a few patterns that were unique to London – some of which we just can’t wait to start wearing. 

Check out 4 trends from LFW we can’t wait to get in our closets immediately: 

Perhaps as an antidote to all the angst-y goth prints, black letter slogan tees and political statement pieces we’ve been wearing lately, several designers included simple pen illustrations in their AW17 collections. Mostly in the form of delicate line drawings on a palette of nudes, Christopher Kane’s spaceship doodles stood out as a fun approach to the style.

They all laughed at Christopher Columbus when he said the world was round. They all laughed at Simon Miller when he said handbags don’t need to be big enough to fit more than a dime in. Whose got the last laugh now? It seems that tiny, hand-held bags have prevailed for another season. We are particular fans of Topshop Unique’s offering which, conveniently, doubles up as a belt bag (read: fanny pack).

It is truly the era of practicality. Molly Goddard’s metallic ballet pumps are a dead-cert for success next season, as are the stylish and elegant examples we saw on almost every other runway: from loafers to Doc Marten-eqsue lace-ups.

We know that it’s not necessarily the best time of year to be investing in a quilt coat but just look at them! If we had any doubts about this look, Mulberry truly won us over with its pastel, floral bed-spread poncho. It’s the only next logical step for the pajama trend: a conversion with the puffer jacket craze. For the final few days of February, treat yourself to a cozy quilt coat. Or just a quilt. As the months roll by, WTG asks: could this be the new slanket?
