Roving Reporter : Costume National

Costume National often stays below the raider, G-d only knows why though!
This was a delicious collection that slotted right into A/W 09's top trends.
There was fabulous navy/black mix brocades that took the form of tailored jackets and super high waisted skirts and cute shifts.
Trouser legs were again calf skimming and a pencil straight cut, while jackets featured the now total must have, eighties, structured shoulder.

Sheer fabric was still popular, with simple tees showing plenty of skin. Styling consisted mainly of cute shoe-boots, keeping the rest of the look quite clean, with bold lips.

Asymmetric dresses, which have been the must have evening look, were again shown here. I love this vibrant red one (again red IS the colour for next winter) with beautiful drape details.

And finally . . . metallic! Gold foil and brocade has been popular from NYC to Europe. Loved this mixed fabric dress. Block colouring with a twist!

One of the most wearable and for me desirable this week . . . I want!
