The whirlwind five days that is London fashion week is now behind us, and it left in its wake some pretty amazing collections for Fall 2013. From Brit heritage brands to indie up-and-comers, click through to see our 10 favorite London collections.

Christopher Kane

We think Kane was kind of showing off this season. I mean seriously, 61 models, and each one of them looked amazing. We can’t wait to see what he’ll do with PPR’s backing.

Burberry

Just because Burberry’s an old brand, doesn’t mean it’s boring. Creative Director Christopher Bailey injected a sense of humor in the brand’s classic style. Heart you!

Jonathan Saunders

Saunders’ subversive ladylike styles made us want to get in touch with our kinky sides.

Mulberry 

Mulberry’s super tweedy layers had an old lady librarian vibe that we were totally digging.

Simone Rocha

This collection gave us ladylike quirk with a structured edge–we’re excited to watch Rocha grow every season.

J.W. Anderson

Though we barely understood his show notes–his collection spoke to us. Anderson’s genius is his ability to push the boundaries aesthetically and intellectually and still make clothes people want to wear.

Erdem

Erdem took his signature lacy florals to a dark, moody, broody place and we loved it.

Preen

Preen’s “apocalyptic” collection was pretty and pretty badass.

Peter Pilotto

In a season where some designers were foregoing prints, Peter Pilotto is still going strong. The unapologetically bold patterns on strong, simple shapes just worked.

Giles

No one does dreamy fantasy frocks like Giles, and his goth-y pale pink fall collection really captured our imaginations.
