The autumn/winter fashion shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris stirred a worldwide craze
as their models walked the runways wearing dark hues, bold colours and lots ofshimmer. We cover many of the brands that made heads turn.
Pretty in Punk by Burberry
Christopher Bailey created the perfect combination of fun and function—fun in the form of retro jacquard minis, tiny patchwork buckle bags and Bowie-inspired sparkle make-up; function in the form of tailored military coats, puffy jackets and rubber-soled booties that guarantee comfort come rain or shine.
Fantasy Furs by Fendi
Fendi honoured its double F logo with a feast of frills and fur, with almost every look receiving the treatment in some form. Sweaters had frilly shoulders, and ruffles decorated skirt hems, sleeves and boots. Squiggles wriggled onto shoulder straps and even became patterns for fox scarves, and floral-patterned mink skirts and Peekaboo bags showcased Fendi’s mastery of fur.
New Frontier by Louis Vuitton
Nicolas Ghesquière’s knack for fusing heritage and heirlooms with a futuristic sensibility couldn’t have been more obvious. Vintage scarf prints, archive trunks and leather goods were spruced up and styled with motocross-inspired bodysuits. Most leather pieces had the high-gloss treatment, providing extra dazzle on a catwalk lined by mirrored columns.
