Nobody does simplicity and silhouette like J W Anderson. With a beautiful use of autumnal colours, it is all about the shapes and detail in the collection. Subtle draping and coloured panels make the the simplicity of the collection come alive. With a great choice of matt and shiny, furry and smooth fabrics, we love this collection perfect for day wear.

 

DAY FIVE:

Simone Rocha:

Drawing inspiration from her grandmothers Simone Rocha’s collection has a lovely classic feel to it, with dropped waist lines and crochet detailing, this collection oozes modernised granny glamour. With a simple colour scheme of powder pink, black and white, focus is on the garment shape and textures of the fabrics.

 

Roksanda Ilincic:

The colour scheme used in this collection is really what stands out to us. A really unusual combination of mint green and powder pink, with burnt yellow, alongside shiny black. There is a lovely use of contacting fabrics as well as colours, with faux furs, wool, pvc and treated lace. Ilincic drew inspiration from fairy tales for this collection, and there certainly is an essence of fantasy, with a contemporary edge.
