London Fashion Week: From Coco Pop chic to disco shoes

  • Taking the biscuit

    Models pushed supermarket trolleys and clutched Kellogg’s cereal packets in Anya Hindmarch’s show. The queen of the witty It bag decorated her Georgiana clutches with Daz and Ariel washing powder logos, while Tony the Tiger was plastered across the Ebury tote and metallic evening bags were shaped as bourbon and custard creams.

  • Rapper’s delight

    Tom Ford played on his own fame with sequinned football jerseys emblazoned with the phrase ‘Tom Ford 61’. They were a cheeky nod to Jay Z, who recorded a song called Tom Ford and wore a counterfeit jersey at his concerts. “I knocked off the knockoff — in sequins,” the designer told The Associated Press after the show.

  • Elegantly wasted

    The new collection from London design duo Marta Marques and Paolo Almeida drew inspiration from Patti Smith’s memoir Just Kids, about her time with Robert Mapplethorpe in New York’s Chelsea Hotel. The label’s signature frayed denim was accompanied by furry sneakers and what Vidal Sassoon stylist Duffy called “night bus hair”. (Getty Images)

  • Lending a hand

    Fingers at the ready: London Fashion Week brings new meaning to the clutch. Osman’s surrealist finishes included a skirt with a hand print, while Holly Fulton emblazoned skirts and dresses with giant hands holding bags, mobiles and keys. (Getty Images)

  • A new peak

    As the Winter Olympics come to a close, Peter Pilotto brought extreme summer sports into wintry pieces. Featuring a print with mountain designs and Airtex sweaters trimmed with fur, the label managed sophistication as well as sportiness. (Getty Images)

  • Making the cut

    There was smart tailoring at Christopher Kane, whose label is being scaled up after investment from Kering. Yet his quirkiness survives, with double-breasted cashmere jackets and shoes covered with ruched nylon “based on the clinical idea of covering your shoes, like in a hospital”.

  • Doing the Charleston

    In the first womenswear collection since the announcement that Burberry’s CEO would be moving to Apple, the brand’s new head drew on artistic references. Christopher Bailey, now directing Burberry’s business strategy as well as design, was inspired by the Bloomsbury Group; bags and coats were hand-painted in the style of the London circle’s country retreat, Charleston.

  • Disco fever

    With a blend of sequins and sportswear, Ashish lit up the catwalk – and social media, following the announcement of another Topshop collaboration. The Tate Modern show featured light-up platform sneakers, which will be part of the high-street collection. (Getty Images)
