Models Off-Duty Part 1

And... welcome back, Cat McNeil!

From Abbey Lee's lace top and psychedelic pants to Hanne Gaby's crop top and cut-out pants, Oyster brings you our favourite model-off-duty looks from London Fashion Week. It seems that religious medallions, midriff baring and statement coats are the trends du jour amongst the model set this season, along with the trademark lashings of leather and denim.

Take a leaf out of the proverbial books of this troupe of models on the streets of London for LFW this week. We are particularly impressed by the threads of Charlotte Free, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Australia's very own Abbey Lee and Catherine McNeil (welcome back).
