For A/W 09 we saw yet again more calming colours teamed with flashes of red and turquoise, both of which have been featured heavily on catwalks around the world.
Over sized jackets and coats, (big on the shoulder and chest to nipped in at the waist) led the way for 'Parisian Chic' suiting.
I loved the Rococo style, brocade like weaves in the jackets, this style has been so popular for next season that it is guaranteed to be EVERYWHERE!
Bra tops are currently the thing for S/S so it was interesting to see them make an appearance here. I love the satchel style bags too, a great alternative to the classic Chanel 2.55
The embellishment trend that was so heavily featured in NYC and then seemed to fizzle out as the fashion circus moved around Europe once again reared its beautiful head!
If you are going to invest in pieces during these 'credit crunch' times, make sure it glitters!
