- ROBERTO CAVALLI -A collection full of animal prints, flapper dresses, and dramatic collars is not one to be missed. The Roaring Twenties inspired looks seem to also have a hint of Wild West embellishment, such as the fringing and wide, feather shaped layers of many of the hemlines, reminding us of Native Indian headdresses. Aside from the stunning beaded flapper dresses, Roberto Cavalli also presented us with some gorgeous tailored looks, putting excessively patterned trousers very much on my radar. I will also be making a point in light of this collection to invest in an oversized faux fur collar, for nothing else seems to add drama like it.
- EMILIO PUCCI -There has been a distinctly Western feel to the last few days of fashion season; the move away from the largely grey and muted pastel prints of NYFW has been replaced by sumptuous olive tones as well as burgandies and bright reds, not to mention excessive colourful patterning. Emilio Pucci's collection was stocked full of these elements, showing tassels and cowboy style boots, particularly in the first image. Izabel Goulart's look is making me want to invest in some green leather trousers (not something I've lusted after before now), whilst Devon Windsor's final gown reminds me of a Zuhair Murad creation. As in Roberto Cavalli, the fusion between flapper girl and Wild West has created an unlikely yet stunning partnership, something we can perhaps all look to next Autumn.
