A 360-degree tour of the shows, from the invitations to backstage reports, grooming trends and venue highlights
Mood board: Joseph Altuzarra's collections have always painted a picture of modern femininity. For A/W the designer brought together inspirations as far ranging as 18th century dandies and Truman Capote's Swans, which resulted in a harmonious balance of the sweet with the seductive.
Best in show: Slender silhouettes started with high-necked blouses and ended in long fluted skirts. Delicate embroideries and lacquered lace were juxtaposed with equestrian-like wool blazers and Victorian lace-up boots for an elegant, heritage-infused look. Although structured, coats were kept small-shouldered and nipped in at the waist for an unadulterated feminine shape.Finishing touches: Altuzarra capped things off with the unveiling of his first handbag collection. With braided straps and heavy gold hardware that took notes from sculpted heirloom lighters, the leather hobo and saddle shapes epitomised Altuzarra's balance of sexiness and refinement.Photography: Jason Lloyd-Evans
