This week Trendstop present three key collections from London's ones-to-watch. Across the collections of Jaime Wei Huang, Toga and Molly Goddard, functional elements and protective qualities were a key feature as a new generation of designers look to create garments that shield the wearer from the travails of modern life while retaining a playful and fun sensibility.
Jamie Wei Huang
Exam paper-style show notes, inspired by her student days were the lead up to Jaime Wei Huang's colourful collection. Playful yet practical, the predominantly unisex range featured cosy scarves and oversized knits adorned with fresh takes on caballing and fun, youthful details, layered over plaid patterned skirts and dresses.

Toga's strong outerwear showing was a highlight of a collection titled "Slightline, Cutline, Align". Blue overcoats with crescent-moon-shape brooches, deconstructed bikers and white faux leather bonded jackets with feather embellished seams were teamed with pointy-toed, coated enamel waders in varying hues. Clusters of jewels and beads as earrings or on lapels added interest to the utilitarian styling.

"Dressed for the storm" was how Goddard described her collection of patchworked Argyll knits and army green ballgowns. Heavy-duty knee boots, balaclavas and padded clutch bags lent accessories a sense of protective practicality with the designer aiming to create clothes that offer stability in uncertain times.
