Autumn 12

Famed for its flamboyancy and opulence, Gucci lived up to its reputation with a decadent collection of plush velvets and printed silks. There was a 1960s influence on suiting with slim dbs and super-skinny trousers taking centre stage, teamed with three-quarter overcoats trimmed with fur lapels. Rust, navy and moss green amounted to what was a timely autumnal palette that looked beautifully rich on chunky knitted jumpers and long-line cardigans. Knitwear in general was triumphant, with the blazer cardigan crossing the knitwear/outerwear boundaries. The military influence, another growing trend for autumn 12, was manifested on db pea coats and the occasional aviator jacket. Look out for the influence of Gucci’s silk printed trousers, which were successfully combined with tonal and boxier-shaped jackets and knits.
