A key trend that we noticed was big, bold earrings on one or both of the lobes, as a quick route towards elevating your look – from where we see it, this trend is both extravagant and self-assured, and the core message: if the earring is bigger than the ear it is fastened to, then you are doing it right. Take Schiaparelli, Act N.1 or Dolce and Gabbana for examples if you aren’t sure where to start.
Conjuring up dreamlike, romantic images of summer evenings, delicate silk floats perfectly on a summer breeze and Dondup, Margiela and Etro were not alone in putting silk scarves on the agenda. Printed with bold colours and patterns, the silk scarf acted as an accessory to jazz up any bag handle and hairstyle or was worn in more traditional scarf fashion, around the neck.
One of the messages we heard loud and clear was that when taking back out into the world, we must remember to shield ourselves from the unforgiving glare of the sun, and it was Beatrice. B and Philosophy and Spyder who were amongst the many brands that reminded us to make sure we're dressing up with that extra layer.
Cycling glasses, but for any occasion. The streamlined eye shield that is designed both for UV protection and for speedy movement – they are functional and ready for action if needs be. Is it any coincidence that Vivienne Westwood and Leowe both rolled down the runway…?
If we are doing anything at the moment it is not staying still. We are moving forward and asking the future for what it has in store. Not only that, but we are doing it sustainably: Vivienne Westwood arrived on a foldaway bicycle and Leowe on a skateboard.
