Hot on the heels of a dizzying week in New York, fashion’s followers fled the deep freeze and jetted across the pond for London’s turn in the style spotlight. Aside from trying to spot a pregnant Kate Middleton (who has, thus far, avoided the fashion fray) and most of Hollywood, who were undoubtedly prepping for the Oscars’ red carpet, a whole host of top models have turned up, including Sophie Dahl at Temperley, Stella Tenant at Pringle of Scotland and duo du jour Cara Delevigne and Kendall Jenner at Sunday’s Topshop Unique show. The city’s star designers proved their prowess over a jam packed weekend, which included J.W. Anderson‘s unabashed ode to the ‘80s, Pringle of Scotland’s 200th anniversary celebration, Sophia Webster‘s otherworldly accessories presentation and Mary Katrantzou‘s plastic fantastic embellishments.

In honour of last night’s awards, we distilled London Fashion Week’s Fall 2015 offerings down to the top 5 looks worth scrimping and saving for. After all, it’s never too early to start planning next season’s shopping list.
