For the past three seasons during London Fashion Week, we’ve teamed up with the lovely people at The LFW Daily, sharing our data and insight on the key trends emerging from the shows. First up is the contrast leather sleeve that’s been around in various guises for the last few seasons. For AW 13/14, it came through again, shown by designers such as Jean-Pierre Braganza, Belle Sauvage and Nihan Buruk.
With consumer sentiment towards the trend being 31% positive, and fast sell-outs at retailers spanning the market from Harrods to H&M, we can be confident this trend will do well commercially in the new season.
