Didn't manage to catch Fashion Week? No sweat, we've reviewed our fave collections from each fashion capital!

Starting of the season as usually was NY Fashion Week, and Karen Walker stole the show for us! Playing with vibrant autumn shades of florals, navy gingham, along with powerful monochrome prints. This latest collection was a tribute to the suffragettes, with easy-going, very wearable looks, yet with an underlining toughness. An iconic highlight of the show was the hand, hammer and broken heart print emphasising the suffragette movement. The looks seem effortless, yet piece together perfectly with slouchy, elegant shaping teamed with practical, satchel styled bags.

For our very own London Fashion Week, Ong Oai Pairam had it in the bag! Colour took to the stage in this collection with bright, primary colours contrasting with patterned textures and metallic. The 50's inspired box jackets and jacquard trousers created a smart, yet fun and vibrant look. The brave mix of block colours against different patterns and textures really worked to make a stand-out look pulled together with metallic tipped shoes, to make the outfit truly unique.

Amongst the crazy catwalks at Milan Fashion Week, Gucci was by far our fave! What really took our eye from the Gucci collection was the return of pastels for AW14. The collection consists of powder pink, dusty blues and greens, with soft beiges, yet with a hint of bright yellow. The precise shaping of the dresses was distinctively infused with a 60's vibe; block colouring along with A line shaping. The mannish, tailed suites saw a fitted leg with sheer, silk shirts. The added fur on top, and knee-high, patent boots with loafer detailing completed the glamorous, chic look.

As all things good come to those who wait, Paris Fashion Week was definitely worth it! Sonya Rykiel has us hooked for A/W14 already! Slick suede filled the floor with long, tailed, camel coats and smart, cigarette trousers. Slouchy, bobbled, voluminous jumpers and fur to contrast the crisp shirts worn underneath. Layering is a fundamental feature for this collection complementing the cosy, wool garments. The shaping of the collection appears quite androgynous with strong, squared shouldering, yet the textures worn are ultra-feminine, with soft shading, and rose print designs. To complete the look of fine knits with a fresh, chic grace, designer for Sonia, Geraldo da Conceicao, added a 90’s feel with a fun platform heel and sheer, delicate gloves adding a ladylike touch.
