Make do and mend was the watchword of leaner times and with this the first fully credit crunched season, there was a huge amount of patching and panelling. Most prolific was its deployment across suiting with contrast sleeves at Comme des Garcons and Neil Barrett and shoulder patches at Gaspard Yurkievich. Outerwear too saw a raft of tonal fabric panelling – some purely aesthetic like the Burberry Prorsum version, while others like Alexander McQueen used more practical influences; and Givenchy’s workwear style donkey jacket was the most earthy of the bunch.
