The look Military blazers paraded down the catwalk complete with gold piping, bright gold buttons and matching hats. Men’s formalwear also influenced suiting as tuxedo-inspired trouser suits and frock coats were seen alongside gold lamé and peplum dresses with a feminine twist.
Key pieces The blazer was key, making a bold appearance complete with sharp shoulders and quirky twists such as floral contrast lining and lapels. Gold embroidery decorated sleeves and lapels and gold lamé was worked into dresses, trousers and skirts. Piping enlivened twin sets.
Commercial appeal Take away the overly literal military styling and this collection has some highly wearable and commercial pieces. The tailored blazers will be strong for autumn 11 and the use of gold backs the trend for metallics.
