#1 FUR
As an accent or a full jacket, bag—even pants. Real or faux, fur was the favoured texture.

#2 LEATHER
Wear it head-to-toe, in different layers, or in unexpected pieces like tops and full pleated skirts.

#3 CAMEL
All camel monochromatic looks were modern and fresh. If you can’t invest in more than one piece, go with the must-have camel coat.

#4 RETRO
From 50’s dirndl skirts and shrunken sweaters to 60’s femme fatale looks, many runways were filled with blasts from the past.

#5 CLEAN DRESSING
The modern look is all about graphic lines, simple silhouettes, and no fuss separates—all very Phoebe Philo-inspired.

#6 MENSWEAR
This influence snuck in through oversized, boxy jackets and coats, often in neutral shades like grey.

#7 LACE
From feminine ruffled dresses to graphic t-shirt shapes, lace was a popular material.

#8 MILITARY
Cargo pants, patch pocket jackets and peacoats in shades of army green or navy brought a military feel to the runway.

#9 NOVELTY SHOES
This season’s footwear was embellished with bows and brocades, and bright in colour.

#10 THE HANDBAG
Top handled, lady-like bags in modest sizes suited the retro-themed catwalks beautifully.
