As we welcome March and the delight of longer days, time seems to be flying by and it feels like only yesterday that we said goodbye to January and a rather short but eventful February.   For the romantic, February might be acclaimed for the excitement and mystery generated by Valentine's Day but let us not forget the fashion world who bi-annually await the arrival of one of the most high profile fashion events in the social calendar: London Fashion Week.   This year London hosted the 61st London Fashion Week alongside 78 of the worlds most talented designers. Celebrated brands such as Anya Hindmarch, Burberry Prorsum and Vivienne Westwood Red set up residence at Somerset House to showcase their Autumn/Winter 2015 collections.   In honour of London Fashion Week, LINLEY plays homage to this iconic fashion event by looking back at the amazing textures, colours and prints evoked by last season’s catwalk shows. Here is our take on Spring/Summer 2015 and some of the leading trends to hit the high street.   Antonio Berardi Spring/Summer 2015 was an array of pretty pastel shades and striking blues. Delicate and fragile dresses by Antonio Berardi were described as being inspired by pictures he'd seen of small girls watching their mothers getting dressed, he said "that innocence and excitement is captivating".   Antonio Berardi   Mathew Williamson Alongside retro floral prints combined with mainly burgundy, salmon and deep red shades, Mathew Williamson’s collection embraced the 70’s with of printed dresses, feathery skirts and tailored suits in blues and dark greens.   Mathew Williamson Ellie Saab Ellie Saab’s ready to wear attire also included hints of blues from cobalt to turquoise with the theme for the show appropriately titled "Dive in to the Deep Blue."     Burberry Prorsum Other colour palettes heavily featured during London Fashion Week were accents of green from emerald to pistachio, mint to teal as seen on the catwalks of Burberry Prorsum. Burberry   Temperley Pastels once again influenced the Temperley catwalk, inspiration was described as coming predominantly from colour and print.  Muted tones of powder blue and pastel pink with a touch of ivory added an air of purity to the spring/summer 2015 collection.   Temperley       LINLEY Spring/Summer 2015 Collection Taking cue from the catwalk, LINLEY have launched a selection of fresh and elegant hues, the newest additions to the classic Henley and Ebury collections.     Henley Collection With a subtle colour palette of sky blue, pistachio green and soft grey the collection speaks to the trend conscious.
