If we had to name names, London Fashion Week would be the wild child of Fashion Month. Leave it to the Brits to unabashedly push the sartorial envelope with bold prints, kaleidoscopes of color and showstopping silhouettes. Each time a collection came down the runway, the bar seemed to raise one notch higher. Our EIC, Rachel Zoe, chose her top picks from the four-day carnival of fabulous fashion. Feast your eyes on the brilliance happening across the pond.
“Burberry outdid themselves this season. The ombre palette paired with the wide, plunging neckline and ruching takes the dress from ultrafeminine to downtown cool."

“The Erdem collection was so great, it’s hard to choose just one look. The bold floral trend is clearly here for spring—it was also seen on the Altuzarra and Victoria Beckham runways in New York.”

“This look manages to be both modern and ethereal at the same time. The fact that these pants are as dramatic as a full-length gown blows my mind.”

“I love seeing novelty pants being the focal point of a look. Leave it to Mary Katranzou to take a staple to such an exciting place.”

“The pairing of the jewel-tone top and the long, ruffled skirt feels both classic and perfectly unexpected. It’s appropriate for a cocktail party or a black-tie art event.”

“It’s clearly all about the black and white trend this spring. This slimming, architectural design is a creative answer to the typical cocktail dress.”

"Peter Pilotto continues to dominate in the print arena. The muted colors of this matching coat and dress conjur Palm Springs chic."
