London Fashion Week Women's FW20 Moodboard The inspirations from the catwalks

Déjà Vu. This is the keyword of the just-ended London Fashion Week FW20. Well, at least in terms of inspiration. Richard Quinn continues to play with masks, flowers and oversized volumes, for a collection that references the British tradition of Pearly Kings and Queens and fetish, a trend always loved by designers. Christopher Kane opts for the original inspiration: Adam and Eve, the couple who first shaped the relationship between man and woman and in the clothes are symbolized by the triangle (unfortunately, in the lace version it reminds a bit too much of a thong). At Burberry Riccardo Tisci continues to update the DNA of the brand for a modern equestrian chic; mood '20s, instead, for Erdem which is inspired by the early photographs of Cecil Beaton, bringing on the catwalk beautiful looks enhanced by hairstyles and hair accessories that will definitely be copied by many girls. Preen by Thornton Bregazzi chooses as reference Don't Look Now by Nicolas Roeg, one of the movies that have influenced fashion the most in recent years; while Emilia Wickstead revives one of the first pseudo-feminist films, The Women of 1939, starring Joan Crawford and amazing outfits created by Adrian, perhaps the most famous of the costume designers together with Edith Head. Shrimps, a minor brand that usually offers interesting ideas, looks back to the style of the English monarchy, back in the spotlight thanks to The Crown, especially the vintage looks of princesses Margaret and Anne... Quoting the Devil Wears Prada, Royalties? For the LFW? Groundbreaking.
