Celebrating The Irreverence Of London Street Style

Londoners have a particular irreverence when it comes to putting an outfit together. They're happy to forgo conventional styling in favor something more off-kilter, and they possess a masterful way to fuse high and low, wearing streetwear with tailoring, maybe throwing an Aries long-sleeved T-shirt over a tulle Molly Goddard dress.

But no moment more than London Fashion Week brings together the city's divergent style tribes, from the vibrantly-clothed club kids outside the Fashion East show to the disco dressers giving us high-octane glamour front row at Halpern. There's those dressed for high-tea while walking into Mulberry, and the Palace, Supreme, and Gosha Rubchinskiy fans sporting the latest Burberry collaboration outside Christopher Bailey's last show. It's a mishmash of personal aesthetic that may seem totally contradictory, but when put together, perfectly exhibit the many sides of British style. Click ahead to see what we mean.
