- GUCCI -Another collection of beautiful muted pastel shades, Gucci has spiced up the look by adding extra buttons, belts and zips. I love the dusky pink and taupe look on the top row, as well as the baby blue coat in the second picture. A slight move away from pastels can be found in the final few looks of the collection, introducing a harder vibe but still maintaining the grace of the earlier looks.
- ALBERTA FERRETTI -Alberta Ferretti's A/W collection is very Valentino-esque. Beautiful olives and browns as well as stunning embroidery and detailing, this collection is incredibly ethereal with a somewhat Pagan or even Medieval vibe. I adore the full length dresses in the collection as well as the sheer fabrics used throughout. The drama of the looks has definitely placed us within the Italian setting we have come to expect through fashion houses here, and I for one love it.
- NO. 21 -First of I absolutely love the blue and red beaded fabric used in the first looks of the collection. The coat is show stopping whilst the camel jumper placed over the skirt is so elegant and timeless, even while introducing a bold patterned skirt. I love the way that No. 21 - like many other shows this season - have incorporated classic styles, such as the camel coat, long sleeved t-shirt and loose fitting jumper, and added more modern parts to the outfit, such as the printed trousers or ragged skirt. As many shows have already demonstrated, we will definitely be looking for new ways to revamp the traditional come Autumn.
- FRANCESCO SCOGNAMIGLIO -It is all about sheer materials in Francesco Scognamiglio's A/W collection. A striking contrast between conservative high necklines and very deep Vs, each look carried its own sense of individuality as well as fitting neatly within the collection. I'm particularly lusting after the second look and the final sheer black dress. I will also definitely be investing in some belts next season as thick black belts have made several appearances so far this month.
