Here are a few of my favourite looks from the runway so far -
Etro have always been masters with prints and patterns and I adored the monochromatic prints they showcased this season. Bold yet sophisticated and although formal, the collection had a drapey, slouchy and relaxed silhouette which was a refreshing take on winter outerwear. Oh, and we do love a hat.
I wasn't blown away by this collection but this look definitely stood out. I love the kaleidoscopic, Aztec-inspired print. Bold patterns aren't usually synonymous with winter wear but this winter it seems will (thankfully) break that tradition.
The first thing I need to mention about this collection is the styling, predominantly, the hair and make-up which I feel is a genius touch to a winter collection. Hair was dusted with fake snow and some was even seen in beards and moustaches. The make-up was uber-tanned with severe highlights to really accentuate the just-came-in-from-the-blizzard aesthetic. Models almost looked frozen, yet still cosy (how could you not be when head-to-toe in Westwood?)
Yet again, prints and patterns showed prominence in this collection, although Westwood has never been a stranger to bold prints, it seemed that this time they will inevitably become the winter trend of this year. Designers (as am I) are eager to shun and keen to embrace the all-black-and-grey winter wardrobe, I look forward to seeing more from the menswear designers in the coming months!
