Industry insider’s share their thoughts.
Collections I think will sell well include The Row and Tory Burch. As for trends, I’m seeing a lot of fuller shapes. Dresses are back in fuller shapes, with a more casual approach for daytime. I see this as difficult for the average UK lady - maybe more for the trendsetter.

Watch out for midi lengths, culottes, classic shirting and loose-fit tailoring. Victoria Beckham’s asymmetric skirts, block-print shirts and flippy-hemmed dresses have already had requests from some of our top clients.

My favourites have been Altuzarra and Oscar de la Renta; both are likely to sell well. In terms of key trends, I saw a lot of sorbet colours, silk and satin fabrics, white cottons and flat shoes. Both of those collections demonstrated these elements.

There was a real trend for a loose fit. Silhouettes are flowing softly around the body or, in more extreme styles, sitting away from it in sculptural curves. Altuzarra had a modern glamour our customers will love.
