So I’m not at London Fashion Week due to a combination of factors, one of which is this pathetic-looking creature and her unfortunate meeting with a petrol-fuelled vehicle, but I have been keeping up with them on Twitter, online in general and via the live stream.

Of what I have seen so far, highlights include:

Dion Lee’s modern sporty vision in Neoprene, leather and laser printed detailing. I loved this kind of fishtailed peplum. (Pic via Fashionista)

Todd Lynn’s urban jungle, safari chic show – opening with olive greens and moving to reds and buttery yellows. It was lovely, unexpected and edgy, but still totally wearable. (Pic via Style.com)

John Rocha’s dark, romantic mother-of-the-bride fantasy – all structured dresses and over-the-top hats reminiscent of fields of roses and 1980s pot pourri … in the best way possible. (Pic, again, Style.com)

Holly Fulton’s Hawaiian groupthink; the candy-coloured espadrilles on the models’ feet were just the icing on this gorgeous cake. Sometimes more is more, and this collection of looks made a real splash. (Pic via the Telegraph)

The shiny, happy watercoloured separates at House of Holland – I wasn’t a huge fan of last season’s cloud prints and over-the-top neon houndstooths (houndsteeth?) but this was on the money. Not to mention that FROW. (Pics via Getty)

Acne’s maxi-maxi skirt complete with buckled pillarbox red leather waistcoat. Amazing. Fashion Editor at Large is right; Acne really does bring out the clothes you want to wear. (pic via FashEdAtLarge)

This sunshine yellow suit at the Topshop Unique show, which reminds me of Jil Sander or maybe Céline, which is quite the comparison! (Pic via Getty)
