LONDON (AP) — The sun came out for an unseasonable warm autumn day as London Fashion Week heated up Sunday with a busy line up of runway shows from Topshop and Vivienne Westwood, among others. Here are some of the highlights .
PARTY LIKE THE ’80s
Giant polka dots, leopard print, fur stoles: The ’80s are back at Topshop Unique.
The label, which is the retail giant’s higher-end line, sent models down the catwalk with a youthful, cheery collection of summery floral print dresses with thigh-high splits, leopard blouses and fluffy fur jackets. Marabou fur kitten heels, fur grab bags and oversized jewel earrings complete the sassy ensembles.
A key look was long-line, boyish blazers — pinstriped or double-breasted — worn over a flimsy dress and cinched in with a colorful thin belt. The show was rounded up with a series of dainty lace dresses embroidered with pretty strawberry vines, which the brand says is inspired by prints on Wedgewood china.
