Spots, Tunic and pant combos, cognac and winter pinks.
When Marc Jacobs chose the spot as the motif du jour in his autumn/winter collection, it was only a matter of time before others followed. And follow they did in London, with everything from dalmatian spots at Topshop Unique to House of Holland’s bingo-ball derivatives and David Koma’s collection (pictured), which used spots in every form, from printed to cut-out and appliquéd.
2. Tunic and pant combos
The easy-to-wear tunic and pant combination works in a variety of fabrications, from tweeds and flannels seen at Pringle (pictured), to matching solid brights, mismatched mixes of knit with velvet, or leather with wovens.
London designers worked a palette of rich cognac browns to the max on simply styled dresses as at Roksanda Ilincic (pictured), jackets and outerwear in luxe wools, cashmere and leather.
4. Winter pinks
An unexpected level of colour emerged from several London runways - not least Erdem (pictured) - with a palette of feminine winter pinks. We love these pinks worked alongside the season’s pumpkin orange, poppy red or cognac colours for an offbeat, clashing mix.
