THE TREND CATWALK:
INTO THE WILD:
Animal Prints take centre safe for AW15. Leapard, cheetah, snake and zebra prints stalked the runway at Roberto Cavalli, McQ Alexander McQueen, by Malene Birger and Elizabeth & James. Introduce the trend via wild accessories, such as box bags and monochrome print boots, or be bold and opt for a dramatic statement coat.
SHADES OF MASALA
Think baked terracotta landscapes and Sicilian wine to channel AW15’s richest hue. IRO, Joseph and Kenzo all used the standout colour in their collections. Paprika, plum and burgundy tones give timeless accessories and biker jackets an autumnal twist; a slick of berry lipstick complements the trend. Work Marsala separates into your look to update a classic monochrome ensemble.
The ’70s are back in a big way this Autumn. Flower power blooms with mesmerising psychedelic prints took us back to the stylish decade courtesy of looks from See by Chloé, Just Cavalli and DKNY. Build your look around a hero piece such as a patchwork suede mini skirt or throw on a wide-brimmed hat for an effortless autumnal style statement.
Fashions inner wild child is unleashed this season, with Vivienne Westwood Anglomania, House of Holland and McQ Alexander McQueen all experimenting with punk styling. Safety pins, leather, bold tartan and black velvet more than nod to the look and hero pieces include zip detailed denim and stiffen handbags. Take on the trend with shoes or accessories for just a hint of punk attitude in your everyday wardrobe.
