A 360-degree tour of the shows, from the invitations to backstage reports, grooming trends and venue highlights
Mood board: Paul Smith opened his A/W show with a pixelated check that spoke of a precise geometry through a retro lens. Working with a faded palette of burnt camel, fawn, maroon and teal, Sir Smith went on to propose a weightier outerwear offering than usual in his hug-able shearling coats and gilets, teamed back with a cropped trouser that defined A/W's dominant proportion.
Best in show: The show's juxtaposition of the heavy and delicate: a thick ribbed turtleneck worn over a bias cut satin skirt; Smith's dot printed utility trench that concealed a transparent underlay; or his silken shirtdress topped with a sheepskin vest.
Finishing touches: The designer's trousers, which weren't cropped short at the ankle, were left to fall loosely over the sole of leather trainers, perfectly encapsulating the season's effortless lifestyle focus.
