The look The 1960s was brought to life through shift dresses, funnel-neck coats and rounded collars. Texture was important as leather, wool-panelled dresses and tailored coats sat alongside heavy sheepskin and short-haired fur coats. Stirrups made a 1980s statement on trousers and silk satin was worked into A-line skirts and collarless round-neck jackets. Grey and silver joined tobacco and ecru in the palette.
Key pieces Short-haired fur coats, minimal-look jackets with concealed zips and sleeveless shift dresses with contrast panels on the décolletage.
Commercial appeal The metallic shift dresses will be winning items if the momentum for the metallic trend keeps building for autumn 11. Stirrup trousers may be a harder one to filter into the mainstream, but textured coats will translate well.
