Lessons in Layering

1. Francesco Liberatore a/w 16 | 2. Comfort a/w 16 | 3. A Détacher a/w 16 | 4. Creatures of the Wind a/w 16 | 5. Altuzzara a/w 16

Autumn calls for fashion’s favourite layers. We love a good Nineties twist on layering, whether stacking a slip dress over a turtleneck or a knit dress over trousers. Take style cues from Altuzarra and Baja East.

Shiny Disco Gowns

1. Jil Stuart a/w 16 | 2. Cushnie et Ochs a/w 16 | 3. Pamela Rolland a/w 16 | 4. Opening Ceremony a/w 16 | 5 Giuletta a/w 16

Spring’s slip dress will soon be replaced by its evening version of liquid chiffon dresses in gunmetal silvers, reminding us of the Seventies disco era.

Flaming Pinks

1. Public School a/w 16 | 2. Monique Llhulier a/w 16 | 3. Tanya Taylor a/w 16 | 4. J.Crew a/w 16

Bright shocking pinks are hard to miss on the runways. The eye-catching vivid hue is bold and certain to stand out in a crowd in colder months. J.Crew and Public School worked up a few bright magenta power suits which are on top of our new season wishlist. 

Monochrome Stripes

1. Creatures of the Wind a/w 16 | 2. BCBG Max Azria a/w 16 | 3. Alexander Wang a/w 16 |

Fashion luminaries Alexander Wang and Creatures of the Wind – among others – play with the Beetlejuice stripe in big bold updated versions. 

Calf Grazing Boots

1. Altuzzara a/w 16 | 2. Custo barcelona a/w 16 | 3. Derek Lam a/w 16 | 4. Desigual a/w 16 | 5. Victoria Beckham a/w 16

The winter runways offer a new ankle-boot silhouette that rises a few inches over the anklebone in a bevy of styles. Victoria Beckham’s patent leather versions with buckles and Altuzarra’s floral print boots have us spoilt for choice.
