The London Fashion Week 2021 Trends You Can Bring into Your Home
The London Fashion Week 2021 Trends to Incorporate Into Your Home
Although London Fashion Week 2021 was a little different to what we’ve been used to in previous years, the abundance of incredible design certainly made up for the lack of an audience at the shows. There was a clear theme running throughout this season – one of a hopeful future filled with parties and social gatherings that everyone has been missing out on over the past 12 months. With bold, stand-out designs, it’s clear to see that minimalism is out and bold colours, prints and patterns are well and truly in. So whether you’re looking to completely refresh your home, or just looking to add a couple of on-trend pieces, these are the best London Fashion Week trends that you can incorporate into your décor.
Upcycling is in
Whether you’ve got an old inherited cabinet you can’t stand the sight of, or you’ve fallen in love with a piece of bargain furniture that doesn’t quite fit in with your existing décor, the good news is that upcycling is well and truly on-trend.
In a bid to become more sustainable, upcycled clothing could be seen all over the catwalks at London Fashion Week this season. From colourful coats made from upcycled blankets by Bethany Williams, to belts and skirts embellished with Swarovski crystals on the Matty Bovan runway – it was clear that designers were trying to make more conscious choices when it came to their designs this season.
So if you want to incorporate this trend into your home, then why not try your own upcycling project? From repurposing an old cabinet to upholstering a chair, not only will you create a totally unique piece of furniture for your home, but you’ll be doing your bit for the planet too!
Bold Patterns and Prints
Perhaps one of the most stand-out collections from London Fashion Week 2021 was Michael Halpern’s. Featuring jaunty silhouettes and bold colours, patterns and embellishments, he said that the collection was ‘Created in a time of restraint, for a time of unrestraint’. From a wild leopard print catsuit, to brightly-coloured sequin dresses, there was no holding back in the creation of this collection and it’s clear to see that the trends are heading towards being bold, bright and fierce.
This was also reflected in Colville’s collection, matching their hand-blown vases in bold colours and eye-catching patterns, to their beautiful clothing collection. Similarly, Preen teamed gothic floral dresses and statement bonnets to floral cushions that any grandmillennial is sure to love.
So if you want to channel your turn your home into a fashionista’s haven, then leopard print accents, bold colours and stand-out patterns are the way to go. Whether you choose a statement wallpaper, or opt for some daring scatter cushions, your home will have never looked so on-trend.
The Colours of the Season
Pantone has described the standout colours of London Fashion Week 2021 as ‘blending heritage and quirkiness’, adding a little bit of personality to much-loved colour palettes.
It’s clear to see that these colours have been used to represent optimism during a time when many people are looking for ways to add a little boost to their day. Colour is the perfect medium for introducing joy and pleasure into our lives. From happy shades of yellow, to beautiful blues reminiscent of a Mediterranean summer sky – these versatile colours will evoke a range of positive emotions.
A mixture of playful and practical, the on-trend shades include:
Green hues inspired by nature (Green Bee, Olive Branch)
Happy shades of yellow (Illuminating, Daylily)
Sky blues (Ibiza Blue, Clear Sky)
Deep reds (Winery, Red Alert)
Muted browns (Tomato Cream, Downtown Brown)
Delicate pinks (First Blush, Perfectly Pale)
If you’re looking to incorporate some on-trend colours into your home, there are a number of different ways to do so. The obvious choice would be to choose one or two complimentary colours to adorn your walls – we think Winery is the perfect colour for a striking feature wall.
However, if you’re just looking to give your existing décor a little refresh, then giving a piece furniture a lick of paint is enough to transform any room. Similarly, adding some colourful pieces such as scatter cushions, curtains or rugs and throws can have as much of an effect as revamping a whole room. So no matter how you choose to incorporate these colours into your home, you’re sure to be filled with joy from the pop of colour every time you walk into your home.
