There’s a revolution happening in the UK.
No, we’re not talking Brexit (this time), but rather what’s going on on the runways of London Fashion Week.
Fashion rules (which everyone knows make the actual law seem more like guidelines) are being broken left, right and centre – and we love it.
While it’s always been known as the quirky, alternative round in the fashion week circuit, this week London is even outdoing itself.
One word: Crocs.

For his S/S’17 collection, designer Christopher Kane sent models down the runway wearing what many regard as the ugliest shoe to ever have been invented.
It’s a move that no-one in fashion saw coming – and probably would have even bet their Birkin bag would never happen.
But it has – and daggy dads, avid gardeners and feet all over the world are cheering out loud.
No longer will people have to sneak out to get the morning paper and hope they don’t run into any friendly neighbours.
The fear of having to actually get out of the car during morning drop offs and reveal your comfy footwear is no more.
And hiding your well-worn pair at the back of the shoe cupboard and pretending you only bought them ironically? Ancient history.
Of course, Kane’s weren’t exactly your bog-standard green or black pair.
