London Fashion Week is the second stop on the fashion month tour and it offers so many cool, chic, bohemian, Victorian and underground looks.
From Victoria Beckham’s 10th anniversary to Riccardo Tisci’s debut for Burberry, from Erdem’s Victorian style to Christopher Kane, here are some of the best collection presented at London. Enjoy #ModicReview – London Fashion Week Spring 2019.
We’ve been waiting all summer to see Riccardo Tisci’s collection for Burberry, as he teased us on Instagram months before. So the big day was here and we discovered 134 looks divided in three sections. He introduced an evening wear section and he kept it until the end of the show. Riccardo Tisci says that his plan is to create fashion for all the generations.
“I’m trying to build, over time, a wardrobe for a mother and a daughter and a father, and a son.” – said Tisci in a statement
Interesting fact, Burberry front row saw no VIPs. Tisci invited only family members, friends, journalists, buyers and people from the fashion industry, saying that sometimes the stars can send the “wrong message” and he doesn’t want to “use them as widows”.
Pastel colors dominated the Spring-Summer 2019 collection. Elegant belt bags with a gold chain, silk dresses, XXL belts and pencil skirts were just a few of the items that Tisci created for his very first collection under Burberry’s umbrella.
As we already know, Christopher Kane does “sex differently to anyone else” and he’s not afraid to show it by using his creations. The Spring-Summer 2019 collection didn’t fail to send the same message, to empower woman and to set in their minds that they don’t have to “dress for anyone else but for themselves”.
“Kane women don’t dress for anyone else but for themselves. They are dominant. I love women and I’ve always been brought up around those strong women.”
Titled as “Sex in Nature”, the spring-summer 2019 collection featured prominent shoulders, lace, glossy silks, leggy silhouettes, slogan T-shirts, and some items created from an accessory that Kane found in a sex shop in Tokyo. We are talking about dress straps and bustiers made solely out of C-string-like elements. Of course, we can’t ignore the tongues on shoes, which are so cool.
Erdem’s Spring-Summer 2019 collection is rich in Victorian references, while it illustrates the actual gender self-identification matter. Moralioglu and his partner found the inspiration behind their new house in Bloomsbury. There they discovered the interesting life of two sisters. Stella and Fanny, who in fact were Frederick Park and Ernest Boulton. They lived around 1860s and the designer admired so much their courage to explore the power of self-expression that he dedicated this collection to them.
Erdem Spring Summer 2019 ready-to-wear was presented right in front of Victoria and Albert statue, inside the magistral museum of Victoria and Albert. Puffed sleeves, velvet brocades, gowns, boudoir satin and lace are the elements that recreate closely the Victorian style.

Jonathan Anderson got back to a more feminine and bohemian style with the collection presented during Spring-Summer 2019 London Fashion Week.
He put away the unisex creations and he used lace, doily and fluid fabrics to bring to life his signature elongated silhouettes and outsized proportions.
“I wanted something a little bit more bohemian, a bit of a celebration of fashion through texture, something that had a kind if fluidity to it, a patchwork somehow.”
The main item of this collection is represented by the bib tops and handkerchief hems which empowered the models even though they looked so feminine in their outfits. JW Anderson also brought back the extreme puffed ’80s sleeves. What’s new? The fact that now they come in animal print fabrics.
This is the first time in 10 years when Victoria Beckham presents one of her collections in London. This is her way of celebrating a decade in the fashion industry.
This season, Victoria chose London instead of New York to be the place where to present her spring-summer 2019 collection. She spent amazing time surrounded by friends and family. Even Kim Jones was present to support her. The show took place at Thaddaeus Ropac gallery on Dover Street, but Victoria had a surprise for her fans and she live-streamed the show on a gigantic 4K LED digital screen set in Piccadilly Circus. Now that’s a first.
The Posh Girl admires Stella Tennant and she was extremely happy that the model agreed to open her fashion show. The skinny pants with a V cut at the end that Beckham presented in different colors under coats, blouses, dresses are the key component of the collection.
„What we did was celebrate being different. We showed it was okay to be who you are,” Beckham said. “And that’s what this is about—empowering women through fashion. All women are different, and there’s something for everybody.” – said Victoria Beckham
Richard Quinn became a star of the London Fashion Week, after last year when Queen Elizabeth was his guest of honor and sat in the front row. This season, his collection raised a high interest. To our surprise, this time no Royal member sat in the front row, but art students from Quinn’s high school in London and Central Saint Martins. They were the first to witness his creations as he actively supports education.
The atmosphere was a mix between classical sounds performed live members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the urban style.
“I was trying to react against what is going on right now with all the hard, techno music, and maybe bring it back to glamour and women feeling like women and wanting a desirable dress without feeling bad about it.”
Best known for prints, Richard Quinn pushed color, print and hyper-glamorous shape to the max for next spring.
