Street threads

1 This season, hip denim brand 7 For All Mankind celebrates daring darlings - women who take risks while maintaining their feminine flair. This translates into new washes in shades such as deep midnight and black-cast distressed blue. The latest cut is the Trouser, a four-pocket style, with a boyish, wide-leg silhouette that still manages to hug the body.

Black of beyond

AFTER A SUMMER filled with colourful prints, plenty of romance and - lest we forget - Boho chic, fashion welcomes a new sobriety for the autumn. To the joy (or horror) of many, black is making a big comeback, as seen when Miuccia Prada sent out her models in an almost entirely black collection.
