The third fashion Week look of the day followed a tripped-out tribal theme. We went on a Central American adventure with Navajo prints from Pendleton in eclectic tones of precious turquoise, Atacama desert dust red and sunbeam yellow. We paired with some similarly tribal Pendleton x Dr Martens boots, and mixed these pieces with a Topman Design jumper in Peruvian lama-herder fairisles. The rusty burgundy Topman Design trousers completed the look...:-)

Irreverent prints and neon colours were the most obvious outfit options for Moschino’s always attention-grabbing show. So we teamed a Kenzo leopard spot jumper with animal print Alexander Wang for H&M jeans for maximum impact. The fluoro freak-out Elka parka and Dr Martens colour-pop brogues tied things together as we lost ourselves amongst the alpine trees in Moschino’s winter wonderworld.

Our first fashion week look the day caught the eye of WGSN trend-forecasters on their Instagram page. This was probably due to the Juun J sweater, which is pushing boundaries with kaleidoscopic graffiti slogans in bottle-green, blue and tangerine. Citrus orange Topman Design trousers and a leather panel Gloverall duffle coat finished off the ensemble...:-)

It was a warped wilderness of circus psychedelia from Walter Van Beirendonck’s fashion tribe for aw14, who appeared on the runway in eye-catching ethnic prints and soda-pop colours. Knitted blanket coats in Mayan temple hieroglyph shapes were stand-out pieces as sporty shimmer leggings and track tops shone through in transcendental Totem pole prints. Navajo striped capes mixed with candy stripe tailoring for an odd but ethereal fusion of preppy prestige and indigenous drama. The knitwear and sports tops continued this trend with a cocktail of Aboriginal graphics and Varsity emblem badges, which were finished off in some cases with Oxbridge collegiate duffle coats. Colours were predictably rainbow-like, from papaya orange and peppermint green to sunshine yellow and sky blue. You simply could never get bored...:-)

A leisurely walk in the park has never looked so perfect and pristine than in Burberry Prorsum's enchanted forest foray for aw14. English dandy-boy gents strolled nonchalantly with upmost grace down the rustic Hyde Park runway wearing languidly draping blanket coats, sublime silky scarves and lavish leaf print shirts. The simmering colours of an English autumn ambience prevailed, with honey orange oak and maple leaves lying loosely across evergreen, rosehip red and moss green capes and shirts. The iconic sights of London town were referenced like picture postcards in the hypnotic rush-hour prints of London maps and landmark monuments that were splashed across statement tops and knitwear, while mesh white vests added a sporty energetic twist to the well-polished park parade. Elegant oversized shopper bags added a quaint Cotswold country cottage vibe to finish off the looks, using intricate grandma-knit patchworks that were also reflected in rugged floral rural blazers...:-)

New Romantic glamour met 90s neon disco for Lanvin’s aw14 show spectacular, which featured super sharp tailoring and edgy power-punk haircuts. Skinny-fit blitz kid models donned multi-coloured regalia that resembled the eclectic outfits of 80s pop legends, from Eurythmics to Duran Duran, as highly fitting pattern-clash pairings dominated proceedings. Mind-bending digi-print graphics set pulses racing with a transcendental trance-pop vibe which was further augmented by the effervescent colour palette, from bold burgundy to luscious lipstick red. Bubble-gum pink met with electrifying blue and neon green for a brilliant tonal silhouette that was bursting with 80s New Wave energy. The tripped-out rave-ravaged tops were a particular highlight in this respect, featuring kaleidoscopic clashes of zig-zags and fuzzy prints that could easily be mistaken for terrestrial TV noise, prior to the digital revolution. The final looks of the show hit this newly computerised age hard with punchy power graphics of hands and faces which looked like they had been colour-quenched through the code-fuelled cogs of Photoshop. It was as slick and seductive as a sultry synth-pop soundtrack...:-D
