Jacqueline illustrates the trends that we should be looking to wear this Autumn. New trouser shapes include wide and flared hems in jeans, large scale checks worn with capes, tight bodysuits and large fake fur jackets. Lace dresses and blouses featured at Yves Saint Laurent and Christopher Kane. Colour blocking featured widely among the collections at Ann Demeulemeester , Gucci, Prabal Gurung and Nina Ricci. Utility is a huge trend at Stella McCartney with large florals and capes abound at Richard Quinn. Oversized windowpane checks including giant dogtooth were shown at Chanel with elegant hats which featured, bucket-style at Gucci and Nina Ricci and many others. Accessorizing is huge this season!

Enjoy your new looks for the season, always a favourite after wearing flip flops and shorts all summer!

Spring Summer 2017 collections of Balenciaga, Prada, Chloe, Armani, Miu Mui and Bottega Veneta

Self directed seasonal 'sketchbook' working from the latest collections from luxury brands and top fashion houses. Loose watercolour inks splashed around the page to portray the new candy bright colours of Spring/ Summer 2017. Featuring Balenciaga's fabulous Spandex trouser/boot combo with more than a nod to  1970's disco. There are a lot of early '80's influences around at the moment in both colour and styling.
