LFW Trend Watch: Red & Pink

London fashion week was having a major post-Valentine come down with the wave of saccharine red & pink looks that pulsed through its runways. Using velvets and a bit of patent, Emilo de la Morena‘s take was especially successful. The colour scheme was punchy at House of Holland, grown up at Issa and Jonathan Saunders, and luxurious in trendy patchworked furs at Topshop Unique. Ashley Williams‘ take for Fashion East looked defiantly teenage with baggy red leather pants and a pink contrast ringer t.

I am a bit afraid of how this trend will be diffused onto the fast fashion racks. Like reduced price Valentine’s Day chocolate, it’s probably best consumed in moderation.
