Androgyny and toughness
Taking notes from menswear and the military.
A welcome return to modern maturity.
The simplicity of black and white.
Silhouettes with volume
Rounded shoulders, ergonomically structured sleeves and roomy tops.
Mid-calf longer skirts
Demure and crucial to grown-up glam.
Tartans, herringbone, tweeds and houndstooth as well as bird and flower prints bring a touch of rural England to city life.
Buttoned-up sexiness, subverted with elements of fetish and sheers.
Designers weren't shy with the colouring pencils this season.
60s and 70s redux
Vintage colours and shapes are still hot - tunics, loose wide-legged trousers and colour blocking.
Heavy, textured outerwear
Furs, shearling and wools in luxurious swinging coats.
Metallic knits find themselves on tunics, tops, dresses and slim-fitting polo necks.
Long languid draping
Clever draping does wonders this season for the evening silhouette.
