We haven't even had a chance to wear our summer wardrobe and everyone is already talking about autumn. From the looks of things, however, we've a lot to look forward to on the fashion front!
Not surprisingly, coats are always big news on the AW11 catwalks. For AW11, big is better – shoulders are rounded, waists are cinched in and sleeves are accentuated and larger than average. Fur and leather jacket owners, like myself, will be delighted to hear they are back again for AW11. Tartan will be back too, seen on everything from trousers to dresses to coats. Following on from SS11 trends, there will be '70's inspired trends of feminine blouses with peter pan collars, crochet, jumpsuits, palazzo trousers, midi and maxi skirts in luxe satin materials that hung and moved beautifully.
Key colours for AW11 will be berry, orange, rust reds, purple, yellow and of course, black is back. Prints will be a common trend too – beautifully graphic and brush stroke like.
