Team effort: Edun's collections have grown increasingly sophisticated over the years, but its global, ethical message has thankfully stayed the same. This season, the show's invitations, runway and also the closing series of looks were emblazoned with the artist Wosene Worke Kosrof's graphic work 'Ethiopian Grammar' in eye-catching black and white. The Ethiopian sculptor/painter is best known for his interpretations on the Aramaic script.

Mood board: Feminine features like slip dresses, oversized ruffles, generous skirts and colourful fringed tweed all got the Edun treatment. Clothes were cleverly embellished to preserve the label's recognizable architectural quality, while also bringing a textural dimensionality to individual pieces. The palette ranged from earthy olive and black tones to acid bright yellow, peach and pink for a restrained, albeit whimsical effect. 
Best in show: Patchwork-style contrasts brought an artistic warmth to the sophisticated collection. In addition to pieces made out of multiple fabrics, there were jumpers adorned with oversized buttons, satin bomber jackets with corduroy collars, and plenty of contrasting trim to keep everyone in possession of a graphic eye happy.
