Stripes at London Fashion Week 2016

Good news everyone… Spring/Summer ’17 looks like a striped one!

Or that’s what it seems looking at this week’s London Fashion Week line up.

Over the last week The Original Breton Shirt Company have been following the designers and shows at the legendary annual event in eager anticipation that we will see the favourite striped style we love so much… and the designers didn’t disappoint!

Here are 3 of our favourites:

Eudon Choi

Korean born, Choi originally started out as a menswear designer before setting his sights for London, and womenswear.
Choi’s experience in menswear has enabled him to merge the two genders to create beautiful pieces of sartorial clothing to shape the female frame.

Keeping with these masculine cuts at LFW’16, he included a number of bold striped pieces amongst the pastel sea of colour which was the rest of his collection.

Palmer // Harding

Palmer // Harding aka. ‘The Shirt Boys’ are a designing duo who first launched in 2012 following their graduations at Central Saint Martins.

Their cutting edge shirts have become such a fashion essential, they have a celebrity cult following leading all the way to number 10 Downing Street, where Prime Minister Theresa May was photographed wearing one of their classics this week.
For SS17, they’ve ventured outside of their plain white boxes and showcased a pastel stripe version… and we think the style leap of faith definitely paid off!

Margaret Howell

Margaret Howell entered the world of fashion in 1969 after graduating from UoL with a Fine Art degree, and decided to go straight into designing and making accessories from home.

Fast forward 47 years; 7 UK outlet stores and an astonishing 90 stores in Japan, Howell has more than earned her Honorary Fellowship and CBE awards for services to the fashion industry.

Her work is mainly inspired by authenticity and functionality, and her bold navy striped shirts at LFW16 show just that as they all have plenty of room for movement, and practical additions like oversized pockets.
