London: There’s a certain energy bubbling through London Fashion Week this season, and that energy’s coming from the young designers, who are really beginning to find their groove. Rejina Pyo is one these – who today, underneath the charming arches of the Burlington Arcade, delivered an accomplished and highly desirable second runway collection.

You could sense the coming of age in Pyo’s work; her tailoring, for instance, came on leaps and bounds from Spring. Of note, a selection of trench-coats, ruched around the storm caps or pieced and sculpted with pretty-button closures.

Nostalgia ran through the heart of the collection, with Pyo sending out 70’s shirts in buttery blue faux-leather, or full sleeve blousons in 80’s wiggle graphics; “Things you might find in a charity shop, or the wardrobes of your grandparents,” as Pyo put it, but – under the modern hands of Pyo- these vintage finds were instantly revived. – Anna Ross
