Mood board: Stella McCartney was in a mixed bag sort of mood for autumn, pulling out high-cuffed suiting, patchworked brocade and black wool dresses, frill-edged pants, granny-style crocheted dresses and plenty of novelty knits such as shawl-collared dresses and split capes that covered only half a woman's body. The variety in this show was vast, but the clothes were kept together in McCartney's classic formula of cool meets wearable.

Best in show: McCartney is a staunch vegan, which is why we love to see her naughty dabbling in fake fur. This season's creations were white wooly mammoth coats including hoods that left the models' covered in shaggy tufts.

Finishing touches: Not touching leather had no negative impact on this collection's covetable accessories such as the rust or olive coloured three-quarter boots with sensible block heels or the leather-esque flat bags with long gold chains that were folded over and worn like clutches.
