LEATHER

Whether it's a cape, jumpsuit, pleated skirt or head to toe look, leather was the fabric of choice in a multitude of shades from rustic Bordeaux to vibrant red or classic black.

Surface embellishment via crystals, beads, embroidery, feathers or studs, whatever your style, it's time to be bedazzled.

SUITS

Menswear shapes and serious attitude were seen at almost every collection.

RED BAGS

Twice is a coincidence, three times a trend. Spotted in leather, suede and satin, red bags were a showroom fave.
