Personally, I was happy to see catwalks that weren’t covered in autumnal browns and oranges.
Our highstreet in AW18 seemed to be full of nothing else and I’m hoping therefore we are going to have a break in AW19.
Don’t get me wrong it would be impossible for autumnal colours to be devoid completely, and perhaps I ignored these pieces without realising. However there appeared to be more blacks, whites and greys that reared their beautiful monochrome heads this season.
Some of our favourite shows had definitely taken inspiration from grunge. Oversized jumpers and beanies graced the catwalks of Tory Burch, Zadig & Voltaire, Coach 1941 and Michael Kors amongst others.
The humble beanie was given a sequin make-over at Michael Kors and at Zadig & Voltaire it was paired with a gold sequin dress.
To continue with this grunge theme, worker/ biker boots were seen across a number of shows, paired with dresses and skirts as well as trousers. As someone who lives in DM’s, I loved seeing this harder edge to some more feminine fashions.
On the other end of the scale though- I have to say I have a thing with pink. So I was pretty happy to see that Pink featured as a core colour choice across numerous shows. From bright fuschia pink to a pale purple pink the whole spectrum was represented.
Although other colours such as yellow were also very apparent, across monochromatic shows pink was often the token colour.
And finally, in a bid to be my favourite season, the NYFW shows gave me exactly what I wanted. Black Leather- and lots of it!*
This was seen across Erkhaus Latta, Longchamp, Tibi, Zadig & Voltaire, Proenza Schouler, Helmut Lang and no doubt many more that I missed.
My favourite shows? Probable Zadig & Voltaire and Proenza Schouler.
Watch out for our London Fashion Week review next.
*I am talking about leather as a texture, this could have been faux leather.
