A glimpse at the Spring/Summer 2017 collections unveiled in London.


Backstage at the Julien Macdonald fashion show in London, the Welsh designer said he was thinking “glamour, sexy, rock and roll.”

And the catwalk was glamourous and sexy indeed, with uber-tight cutaway dresses and hot pants leaving plenty of tan and oily skin on display.

Military-style jackets were left mostly unbuttoned – with no blouse, of course. And models wore only the sheerest of bodysuits underneath for a trendy “no underwear” look.

Every look, led by haileybaldwin</a>, from the <a href="">JulienMacdonald show:

Schoolgirl looks

There was more of a back-to-school feel at Mulberry, with traditional school-uniform shades of navy, mustard and burgundy.

Johnny Coca’s collection came in a typical wintery palette transposed for spring. The Spanish designer drew inspiration from British classrooms and filled the catwalk with flowing tea dresses, schoolgirl blazers, lots of stripes and flamboyant ruffles, and of course the brand’s beloved leather handbags.

Retro and fun for House of Holland

House of Holland celebrated its 10th anniversary with a throwback to the Sixties.

There were lots of gingham, floral prints and bright colours to stare at, and frills, flares and ruffles galore.

Designer Henry Holland said his collection was clearly a reference to the gypsy traveler communities.

Rewind to Ancient Greece

The rewind went even further in Mary Katrantzou’s collection, packed with ancient Greek references with a psychedelic twist.

The line featured silhouettes evoking clay jars, fitted tunics and looks straight off a fresco.

The Greek designer also showcased her signature bold prints and statement accessories, with models wearing single, oversized earrings and clutching small bags.
