London designers are known for their youthful experimentation but they’ve becoming equally adept at delivering polished wearability. Day two’s highlights included Lucas Nascimento’s sheer, precision-cut layers (above and below), Joseph’s serene sportswear and Whistles’ luxe leather separates.

Even J.W Anderson surprised with extreme commerciality on his catwalk (combined with clever creativity of course), giving us that spring perennial ‘nautical chic’ his way, involving strategic cut-outs and rope details all accessorised with fetishy floppy leather hats.

On the exhibition stands it was great to finally meet Sam McCoach from Le Kilt, who showed me her collection up close which features some rather sexy little patent straps. Le Kilt is part of the Touba showroom which looks after some of my favourite LFW brands and they always have something new to show.

I also caught up with Charlotte from India Mimi, a new line of understated bags made from vegetable dyed leather, all manufatured in Italy. I love her colour palette for spring 2015 – a mix of warm tans, cool neutrals and Miami brights. Wool & The Gang have a firm following now and continue to build their sustainable knitwear brand. Their handknit beanies are so super-thick and tactile and lend themselves to fun graphics like these initials…

I love it when designers start off with one product item before slowly expanding into other areas. It’s much easier to get your head around their aesthetic and it gives you a hook to latch onto too. Example: Le Kilt. Samantha McCoach grew up watching her grandmother make kilts and forever inspired, launched her own modern kilt line this year (it’s currently stocked at Dover Street Market).
