What we'd love ...
Something lacy from Prada
Just make sure you don't forget to wear your underwear.
A coat by Jil Sander (right)
Dramatic necks were big this season, but those by creative director Raf Simons were just right.
A Balenciaga dress
We love the razor-cut sheath dresses with arm bands and all that latex; very S&M.
Matte and colourful sequins reigned at Dries Van Noten (centre right), Christian Dior and the Burberry show.
Lanvin's grosgrain or fabric-tape dress
Alber Elbaz swathed his models in dresses made from metres of ribbon. Mummies have never looked so chic.
A tailored jacket
Wool, canvas or leather, crisply tailored jackets are this year's must-have. We loved Yohji Yamamoto's leather pieces with raw edges (far right).
