London Fashion Week SS23 Day 3 Highlights

Day two of London Fashion Week came to a close after Emily Ratajkowski walked the (casino) runway at JW Anderson and Molly Goddard’s tulletopia took over Seymour Leisure Center. Day three, however, kicked off with Ratajkowski swapping Anderson’s oversized T-shirts for Nensi Dojaka’s sheer, form-fitting dresses, followed by an impressive standalone showcase from footwear designer Ancuta Sarca.

Throughout the day, guests were treated to presentations from Simone Rocha, who made her menswear debut at The Old Bailey, alongside David Koma, who took to the great outdoors for his runway show, and Rejina Pyo, whose SS23 offering took place on the 28th floor of HYLO.

Read on for our highlights from day three at LFW, before this season’s showcase comes to a close on September 20.

Simone Rocha

Simone Rocha took guests to court for SS23 and presented a selection of statement jackets, tulle-clad dresses and zip-up trousers. Each dramatic look was complete with larger-than-life accessories, from oversized ruched gloves to view-distorting headdresses, alongside a delicate range of beaded bags. Rocha’s signature bows and floral prints adorned the majority of her SS23 pieces, interspersed with playful silver mini-dresses, tulle jackets and form-fitting corsets. Overall, Rocha’s showcase was one not to be missed.

David Koma

David Koma’s SS23 showcase was easily one of the most talked about offerings from day three of London Fashion Week. One of the few shows that took place outdoors (in a space that previously housed the work of William Shakespeare, no less), the collection was a masterful lesson in all things color. From electric blues and vibrant oranges to vivid yellows and greens, Koma’s showcase fused holograph jackets and boots with fluffy bags, padded jackets and glittery mesh trousers. Drawing inspiration from “the clash and harmony between the natural and unnatural,” the collection hinged on a gasoline motif, taking cues from female motorsports drivers.

Rejina Pyo

One of Fashion Week’s more subtle showcases, Rejina Pyo’s SS23 offering was a dedication to femininity. Represented through draped dresses and sheer fabrics, the collection fused subtle tailoring with delicately crocheted bras, button-up tops and patchwork denim. Silhouettes were flowing and soft, with sculptural elements littered throughout, complete with hand-crafted accessories, gold-plated hardware and wooden-heeled sandals.
