It’s called ‘Mad Monday’ for a reason on the LFW schedule and yesterday it more than lived up to its name! With power house Burberry the highlight on the show schedule, shows from GILES, Christopher Kane and Erdem still proved a huge hit with a slew of celebs in attendance.

Issa, Peter Pilotto and Michael Van Der Ham also get an honorable mention too for pulling out all the stops, but as the spotlight prepares to shift to Milan on Wednesday, here’s our London Fashion Week Day 4 highlights…

Burberry: AW14 was all about the blanket cape (now flooding the high street) so all eyes were on Burberry to see what would be the must- have for next season following this epic success. The answer? the humble denim jacket. Past reincarnations from Christopher Bailey have included the aviator, the trench and the biker jacket, so it was only a matter of time before the signature denim jacket got a makeover. Bailey’s version came in a deep indigo colour, complete with sheepskin trimmings edged on the collar and hem in various different cuts, to flatter and suit all figures. A triumph once more, this will be EVERYWHERE come Spring 2015.

Who made the FROW? Jamie Campbell- Bower, Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne & Paloma Faith (Walking- Suki Waterhouse and Jourdan Dunn)

Erdem: The collections are always so dreamy and fanciful, you expect to be taken into another world every season and once again he did not disappoint. Gothic sheer florals, pastels in lemon and lime and exotic prints, which left you with the feeling of being in the catwalk jungle; everything was impossibly beautiful and flawless; a symbol of runway life itself.

Who made the FROW? Alexa Chung, Pixie Geldof and Daisy Lowe

GILES: The backstage passes featured pictures of The Jungle Book, the invites came in the form of a foam claw and the music that played during the show? exotic birds! Welcome to the wild with GILES and his disco jungle; a fabulously loud and OTT celebration for Spring.

Who made the FROW? Daisy Lowe and Jaime Winstone

The Topshop Show Space this year was the Turbine Tunnel at the Tate Modern – a perfect match for the modern and uber-fashionable London, and the Topshop Show space was the setting for Michael Van der Ham’s A/W Catwalk show.

Like many designer’s this season, though A/W could be seen as the times for muted tones, MVDH chose to keep the collection bright yet elegant. Who said grown up elegance can’t be fun?

Wearable sequins sparkled on serene navy, whilst a shot of orange could be seen merged with pink, and duck egg blue. Burnt orange then merged with copper on silk dupion, oriental-style cut dresses.

Black lace contrasted with shades of blue or over bright yellows, lace skirts with a uniquely dropped side hem matched tops with the same detail.

The show was one of contrasts – black merged with lemon yellow, silks over chiffon appliqué, prints and embroidery; definitely a refreshing change to the A/W colour palette.
