All Hands on Deck by Prada
Each look in one of the most outstanding shows of the season was decorated to perfection. Christophe Chemin artworks printed on white shirts. Charms and book pouches dangling from straps and belts. Sailor hats and matching corsets. It was a diverse collection, but all the pieces fitted together beautifully Genius. Pure Prada.
Grid Lock by Tod’s
Linear patterns were the core of Alessandra Facchinetti’s last collection for Tod’s. Fur-collared wool jackets in checks were worn with matching trousers. Leather trench coats, bomber jackets and skirts were whipstitched to give the illusion of grids. Bags, loafers and boots were topped with playful leather tassels.
Less is More by Hermés
The French maison epitomised minimalism, expressing luxury with subtlety and quiet sensuality. Highlights included a chevronpatterned mink coat that was double faced (because that’s what luxury is—something you feel on the inside), a studded suede ensemble and a floor-grazing salmon-pink bias-cut dress.
