Despite the unusually sombre air cast over Milan Fashion Week last week, it being the first since the death of fashion mogul Anna Piaggi, designers came up trumps with their latest catwalk trends for the autumn/winter season.
Gianmarco Lorenzi, among others, is favouring sculpt wedges this season, twinning them with sexy studs to finish off any outfit with a touch of sass. (The curious can find Gianmarco Lorenzi styles at farfetch.com). Bold florals will be big this winter with some gorgeous colours coming off the runway and designers really pushing powerful pattern- matching from head-to-foot.
Fans of Downton Abbey will be pleased to see that countryside chic is still big over at the Ralph Lauren camp. Expect tweeds, jodhpurs and woolens, all finished off with sturdy, heeled leather brogues in browns and blacks, buffed to an edible perfection.
Givenchy’s fold-over leather knee-boots were heavily featured in their sleek catwalk show this year, and they’re already proving to be a popular choice online. A knock-out look with any outfit, Givenchy showed them off beautifully, twinning them with a range of slick black skirts and trousers, highlighting the versatility of this innovative footwear.
Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen showed of a great range of feathered and furred footwear that’s sure to be a hit as the colder weather kicks in. The range also includes the signature skull pumps, which sees the charming addition of a Mohawk this season to add an extra touch of style.
