A day at the races

Vogue’s London Trend Report Autumn Winter 2011

Part 1…

  • Following seasons of cosy rusticity and utility wear for day, and thigh-skimming cocktailwear for night, London designers are now focussing on elaborately detailed and seriously grown-up chic.

  • There is a fetishistic edge to the beautifully crafted clothes – see Giles, Topshop Unique, Antonio Berardi and Marios Schwab.

  • At Donna Karan and Victoria Beckham new shapes emerged like the wrap skirt, the midi length and a u-turn of the body con va-va-voom trend that dominated last winter.

  • Androgyny was the calling card with Alexander Wang and Phillip Lim delivering luxe utility
  • The romance with the Seventies is still in the air – as seen at Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors and Marc by Marc Jacobs

Pull and Bear Trends

The latest trend boards from Pull and Bear have really caught my eye. I visited the shop with Mark yesterday and loved their new collections (especially the duck egg dresses and camel shoes!) Their website is definitely worth a visit, even though you can’t buy anything from the looks of it (shame), but it has great moodboards and photography. I’ve picked out my favourite pieces from these moodboards:
