Less is definitely not more this autumn as opulence made a comeback on the catwalks. Ornate 17th-century-style gilded embroideries and tapestries created drama at brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, while Salvatore Ferragamo featured Fabergé-inspired velvet handbags decorated in elaborate embroideries. For a more modern look, Lanvin embellished its structured dresses in thick black scrolls. In real life, the look is all about subtle details. Pair a tailored black jacket with an embellished handbag or heirloom-style jewels for a rich look. Or choose a separate made from rich fabrics like jacquard or velvet as seen at Stella McCartney.
