Behind-The-Scenes at London Fashion Week

Topshop Unique, Temperley London, Meadham Kirchhoff and more!

Last week, we went backstage at London Fashion Week. Here is a look at some of our favourite shows including Basso & Brooke, Topshop Unique, Temperley London, Aminaka Wilmont, Meadham Kirchhoff, J.W. Anderson, Oliver Spencer and Jayne Pierso.

Under Emma Farrow's helm, Topshop Unique unveiled a very wearable collection that took inspiration from old military uniforms and sixties beatnik boyfriend dressing. 'Dichotomy, birds and walls' were the three points of inspiration behind Bruno Basso & Christopher Brooke's AW12 offering, and translated into an elegant and print-diverse collection. Alice Temperley referenced the rich colours and textures of paintings, sculptures and tapestries from the early Renaissance period, while over at Aminaka Wilmont, the models cut dark, flowing silhouettes inspired by the composition of structures in glass, crystal and stone. Elsewhere, Ashish was awash with sequins and rainbows inspired by Goa and the New Age movement.

One of LFW's most talked-about shows was from Meadham Kirchhoff, with models decked out in face-paint, fantastical headgear and all manner of clashing prints and textures. J.W. Anderson's womenswear AW12 collection borrowed from his menswear collection as well as from ideas of aristocracy, youth culture and individualism.
