Loving the continued monochromatic moodiness of London Fall 2013 – although, as you’ll see tomorrow, there is a strong strain of blood red on the loose too. Erdem echoed the season’s toned down, textured up trend with a sublime digital/dot duo (directly above), whilst Mother of Pearl combined graphic stripes and a bee print to great effect. And a honorable mention to Antonio Berardi, whose series of crisp, dark gowns screamed Top of his Game. Oh, and Tom Ford: you minx! HF.

Moody, mossy London. Mary Katrantzou reduced her palette to inky hues and was inspired by the photographs of early twentieth century photographer Alfred Steiglitz, cleverly shaking off the burden of her multi, kaleidoscopic prints that have since been attempted by every other designer and their lap dog. Also: super cute collections from Sea and Emilia Wickstead. HF.

NYFW Fall 2013 so far: some great pared-back prints and tones of olive, camel and navy. Both Carolina Herrera and Alexandre Herchcovitch used a gloriosa lily print to great effect. But the message seemed to be: no more flowers and neat trousers.
