Of all the fashion weeks (and there are a lot these days), London Fashion Week is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful. The venues are stunning, the models are cool, and the runways are filled with sartorial eye candy. The designers that show in London have a knack for tailoring, yet they're not afraid to be experimental and push the envelope.
On the horizon this week are Victoria Beckham, Burberry, and Christopher Kane, to name a few of the most highly anticipated shows, and we're lookign forward to sharing the most exciting happenings with you, straight from the runways (or catwalks, as the British say). So be sure to watch this space for the duration of LFW, and be on the lookout for our coverage of Milan and Paris up next.

Burberry designer Riccardo Tisci created a youthful collection for Burberry F/W 19. There was plenty of the house's iconic tartan on display (but reworked in modern, fresh ways) and lots of luxe camel-colored looks. On the other side of the spectrum were a handful of looks that would fit right in at London's underground club scene (including a corseted look modeled by Gigi Hadid, who walked the Burberry runway for the first time ever).

Victoria Beckham stayed true to her signature aesthetic, debuting a F/W 19 collection with expert tailoring, sophisticated layers, and bold color combinations. It was undoubtedly difficult for the showgoers to decide what to focus on—Beckham's elegant designs are her adorable family perched next to Anna Wintour.
At Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, the designers' knack for prints was displayed in full force, many of them mixed (i.e. busy florals paired with checks). The designers were also clearly inspired by the '80s trend, as evidenced by the puff-sleeve mini dresses, sequins, ruffles, colored tights, and punky lace that went down the runway.

You can always count on Simone Rocha to deliver plenty of fanciful frocks that are also cool and a bit tough. For fall 2019, Rocha designed a slew of dresses topped by bras and camisoles, sheer trenches, and reimagined baby doll dresses in pretty pastels.
