Glamorous tailoring was showcased at Misha Nonoo’s Ready to Wear collection with cropped and full length trousers on show in an array of hues, while a touch of elegance was added to the mix with peplum jackets and fur collared floor length gowns finished in raw silk.
Rag & Bone
“Think about a country house and all the things you might find in it,” Marcus Wainright told WWD when describing the influences behind his and David Neville’s latest collection. Each piece was fit for any rider and screamed English countryside. Jodhpurs were teamed with belted jackets and blanket-like cardigans thrown over the top, collared dresses with sheer long sleeves were worn over tights and head to toe florals were broken up with rich metallic box cut coats.
When the Forbidden City doors were open the crowd was wu-ed by Jason Wu’s asian themed collection. Starting with the structure of military lines, the collection soon moved into softer silhouettes until finally ending with a ‘Shanghai Express’ glamour. Army green quilted jackets were belted at the waist and worn with studded leather gloves, while embroidered key hole elbow length sleeve dresses were accentuated with velvet heels and tassled accessories. I was bewitched by a magenta dress with padded shoulders, embroidered with black beads and finished with a pleated satin floor length skirt.
