KENZOKenzo's latest collection has presented us with a mammoth selection of prints, mostly all worn at once. This layering and mixing of different prints was huge across NYFW, and it seems that it will definitely be a major trend for A/W overall. Kenzo showed similar attention to the waist as Giambattista Valli's couture collection did, as well as in the Alexis Mabille show; peplums, belts, bows and zips; the waist is definitely our point of call this year.
- CHLOE -First of all I love the colour palette that Chloé have focused on this season. Burgandies, pale pinks and monochrome, the collection is simple without being dull. Pretty prints that aren't an eyesore dominate the looks, namely simple florals and unoffensive geometric shapes. My favourite piece of all is the patterned shirt in the centre photograph; chic, pretty and absolutely wearable; just like the collection as whole.
- GIVENCHY -It seems that Givenchy have looked to the animal world for inspiration for this collection; leopard prints, fur and butterfly wing patterns, the collection has - unlike most shows this season - gone for earthy browns as opposed to monochrome or pastels. I love Joan Smalls' final look seen on the bottom right; the sheer skirt maintains class through its dark stripes, whilst the statement necklace offsets the whole look. That is definitely something to note for this season - statement necklaces are very much back.
