Fashion month is well and truly over, leaving us a little nostalgic for the endless outfit inspiration both on the runway and out on the streets.
SS16 shows at London, Paris, Milan and New York fashion weeks revealed a modernity with deep roots in the past, from space-age digital warriors with medieval chest plates to Fendi’s Edwardian balloon sleeve and mini-skirt combo.

The Digital Warrior
Louis Vuitton’s show was introduced as ‘a journey to the frontiers of the digital era’, and we couldn’t think of a better description for SS16’s tough brand of futuristic chic.
Sheer and lace are a permanent fixture in spring collections, but for SS16 they take a darker turn. This is romanticism, Bram Stoker style.
The seventies are still inspiring designers for spring, and this season it’s all about playing with scale – large sleeves, long skirts and huge glasses. Pinks, browns and yellows take on a muted hue.
