Stockholm Fashion Week: Mes Dames

Christine Granville, a stylish Second World War secret agent, was the muse here in a collection that combined a retro elegance with modern sophistication.

Balancing minimal clean lines with feminine softness, high-waisted pleat-front trousers and knee-length pencil skirts created a sleek hourglass silhouette, mixed with silky jumpsuits and beautiful boxy outerwear. Coats came as simple-collared knee-length styles or roomy cropped versions, all with zipped shoulders, sometimes styled sleeveless as vest coats - a key direction. Rich Bordeaux red, strong blue, army green and ink-splattered print covered mixed textures, including leather with velvet and suede with wool.

In short A Drapers favourite - a concise collection that updated a certain elegance with a modern, simple stylishness.
