The fashion year was kickstarted in London with a fresh line-up on menswear shows. Highlights included the comeback of orange as the colour of the year, as well as a renewed embrace of a surreal aesthetic. You can always rely on London to debut the weirdest and most eye-catching trends.
In Paris, menswear designers showed that it is all about standing out this autumn. Peacocking was the name of the game, where colour blocking, tartan and super-size clothing were just a few of the highlights.
Womenswear shows got off to a similarly strong start, with New York stepping up it’s creative game for a second season in a row. Unsurprisingly, politics was a the heart of many collections, and the catwalks welcomed diverse casting.
In London, broad shouldered suits and bare shouldered tops put the clavicle area at the top of the AW17 trend list. Molly Goddard and her tulle dresses were talk of the town, while other stand out shows included an epic production from Burberry (of course) and a glitzy protest from Ashish.
At Milan, ladies in red sauntered down multiple catwalks and extravagant headwear offered a regal finish to eclectic collections at major houses such as Prada and Dolce and Gabbana.
While Paris was plagued with controversy as the terrible treatment of some models was revealed, designers also managed to offer a more positive narrative with magnificent shows courtesy of Miu Miu and Chanel.

At Tokyo, designers offered a form of eccentric minimalism. Staple pieces were re-imagined and everyday combinations were re-styled to lend a harsher, more savvy edge. The street style wasn’t bad either.
