Street Style: Cheeky and Cheerful in London

By

The London street style scene predictably displays lots of quirky details: A batman tee, a custom football jersey, Susie Lau's silly backpack, bright knit beanies, a giant tassle used as a belt. But understated chic still has a foothold. Our photographer, YoungJun Koo, caught the lovely Caroline Issa and her initialed clutch, while Leila Yavari wore boyfriend jeans with a designer sweatshirt and over-sized man's watch. In general, the Brits have been more sensibly dressed than the New York crowd, showing off layers and few peeping toes. Long, wide-leg pants make more than one appearance in our slideshow, as does fur (duh), and plenty of pattern on pattern. Click through for all that and more from the first few days of London Fashion Week.
