Mood board: Inspired by Manhattan's art scene and the well-heeled, gallery hoppers of Chelsea, Hugo Boss presented a modern wardrobe of menswear and womenswear founded on architectural and design influences. Understated yet confident and armed with an attention to detail, the collection - which was almost completely made up of monochromatic ensembles - blended classic tailoring with fluid, wearable dresses and sport-inspired knitwear.

Best in show: Despite suiting being a longstanding part of Boss's heritage, creative director Ingo Wilts didn't hold back from tweaking proportions for a refreshing spin on tradition. Double-breasted silhouettes for both men and women were more fitted in the body (closer to a three-button suit's fit), while ever so slightly relaxed in the sleeve. Trouser shapes also sported a more athletic look, while luxurious fabrics and sophisticated worksmanship helped to anchor each piece's refined nature.

Sound bite: Wilts said, 'I wanted to go back to our heritage and tailoring. I wanted the collection to be dressed up but still in a casual way. Sportswear for me nowadays doesn't only mean sneakers and track pants. You can have beautifully tailored pants with a sportswear jacket. This is the idea of elevation in the brand.'
