The Burberry show was a classy affair, with cropped denim jackets given a cool, modern update with its’ leather collars and sheep skin lining. The focal pieces were underneath the modern jackets – the sheer tulle dresses in pastel lilacs, peaches and pinks were romantic and feminine. We also saw bold, brash trench coats during the Technicolor finale, and sheer skirts.
You can’t get much autumnal than Christopher Kane. The sharp hues of burgundy, black and grey mirrored the season itself. Rope was also prevalent; we saw it detailing in the form of a closure on the jackets and the dresses near the end of his collection. There were also classic pieces: the cutout body con dress, the pleated midi-skirt; all accessible fashion items designed to sex-up your autumn wardrobes (we particularly loved the corseted mini-dress!). It’s obvious loafers will be big this season, and among the standard high-heels were cute, smart loafers.
Dark, beautiful and botanical: the palm-print dresses; the tiered tulle dresses, and the feathered coats and c-ords symbolized the Erdem girl as powerful and unique. The colours were always dark, the khaki greens and darkened blues had the potential to become overbearing, but the subtle hints of lemon yellow helped to keep the clothing fresh and young. Elsewhere we saw flashes of skin, in risqué cut-out dresses, the classy lace fabric clashing with the sexual shape and fit.
