One of the most highly anticipated events of the season, London Fashion Week has come to an end after a series of week-long fashion shows and on-the-go style. From JW Anderson’s eclectic Soho-inspired show to Simone Rocha’s foray into menswear, LFW SS23’s fashion crowd brought palpable excitement and elevated designs to the capital. As the event moves on to Milan, we’ve rounded up Fashion Week’s most notable trends worn by the industry’s key players. 

Ready To Wear

Led by the likes of Helen Kirkum who debuted her first deconstructed trainer collection, staple sneakers are set to reign supreme. Boasting pared-back designs, comfortable fits and understated colourways, ready-to-wear shoes are designed to be worn everyday, no matter the occasion. Championing versatility and durability in equal measure, this trailblazing trend is paving the way for a new era of responsible style.


Genderless sneakers have long been a staple of the sneaker industry. However, with the influx of menswear on the runways of London Fashion Week’s SS23 womenswear season, it’s predicted this trend will continue long into spring. Yeezy, New Balance and ASICS are the brands to note, while oversized blazers, denim jackets and chunky shoes are an easy way to achieve the look.

Metallic Colourways

From flashes of bronze to silver accents, metallic colourways are expected to take the sneaker world by storm. Off the back of the Y2K trend that soared to popularity this year, SS23’s offerings showcased an array of shimmering tones, ideal for adding a touch of luxury to your wardrobe. Master the trend with the Nike Dunk, Air Max 97 or the Air Jordan 4.

Sport-Inspired Sneakers

Arguably one of the sneaker world’s most iconic trends, the sport aesthetic has dominated the market for decades, seeing a recent peak in 2020. But for 2023, brands have gone one step further with reinvented silhouettes and retro colour schemes. Underpinned by the likes of adidas, Jordan and Nike, get ahead of the crowd and add basketball kicks to your daily rotation.
