Richard Quinn’s show started an hour late, with cheek-by-cheek seating, tempers flaring and confusion about who was, or wasn’t, in the right seat. It was a some-things-never-change moment if there ever was one.   Quinn can be forgiven: this was his first live runway show since February 2020.

Unapologetically bold and unafraid to step out of the norm is the only way to explain the vision of Richard Quinn. Closing out London Fashion Week with his Spring/Summer 2022 collection, the British designer gave us a glimpse into his creative, imaginative world.

Reinventing florals for spring, Quinn quite literally debuted a vibrant life-size bouquet down the runway. Models donned completely monochromatic ensembles in bold green, yellow, and red as they opened the show. Each standout silhouette wrapped the body (and shoes), leaving the models’ faces exposed and framed with matching ruffle headpieces suggestive of flower petals. Meanwhile, others took the runway in head to toe floral patterns embellishing sweeping gowns, puffer vests, and tights –matching tote bags included.

Though the 31-year-old designer is anything but practical in his designs, more subtle options came to form in waist-cinching trench coats, flowy culottes and leather jackets in both fur trim and the designer’s signature studs. From dramatic voluminous silhouettes to cocktail dresses, the closing looks presented extravagant shapes with leaf cut detailing and diamanté embellishments.

Although most of the attention was on the runway, we couldn’t help but get a glimpse at the star-studded front row in between look reveals. Famously known for having the Queen attend, next to her seatmate Anna Wintour, there is no denying the attractiveness of Quinn’s shows. After a year away, his still boasts one of the most heavily attended by VIPs during LFW. Kate Moss, cheering on her daughter Lila Grace who walked the runway, Boy George, and Nicola Coughlan, among many others, all attended — naturally, most dressed in Quinn’s creations. The show was the exciting out of the box moment needed to close out the return of London Fashion Week as we head to Milan.
