Girly braids worn with tracksuits. These are the kinds of contradictions that make London-based Caitlin Price’ designs so appealing and visually arresting. With one foot in street wear and the other in high fashion, Price designs garments that are technically complex while maintaining a relaxed, cozy feel. Caitlin is a recent graduate of Central Saint Martins, but has already shown during London Fashion Week as part of the Fashion East show. Her work is so quintessentially South London, I can’t help but hear the sounds of UK garage and grime whenever I see her designs in editorials, much like the one from High Content seen above.

London Fashion Week AW15 RTW: Best Of

Fashion week is exhausting. OK, so I haven’t actually attended any shows yet and all I’ve had to do so far is keep up with the media coverage, but trust me, looking at collection after collection in my web browser gets very tiring after the 50th collection. I am excited to switch things up and see some clothes in person tonight, as I will be attending Toronto’s pre-fashion week show, The Collections, highlighting the best in up-and-coming Canadian designers. If I’m being honest, both the intimate setting and the quality of the designers make the Collections far more exciting to me than fashion week itself. Stay tuned for coverage from the shows in the next few days.

Until then, check out my picks for some of the best Autumn Winter 2015 collections from London Fashion Week. As a sidenote: London has become the fashion week each season that I look forward to the most. In many ways, the subversiveness and innovation of the designers who show here are comparable to what I’ve seen in Paris, but with more youthfulness and I-don’t-give-a-fuck attitude. As such, I also find the collections in London to be the most polarizing. Let us know which collections you liked/disliked the most!
