Models wear cream knitwear and shimmering silks

Esteban Cortazar: clean sculptural silhouettes with South American flourishes characterised Esteban Cortazar’s A/W 2018 collection. Amongst some of the highlights were long poncho-style wool coats paired with vibrant pom pom fringing, zigzag patterned knitted gowns and gossamer-like silk trousers and skirts that evoked the passion and flavour of those southern climes. Accented with talisman-like jewellery and refined boots, the collection was as romantic and evocative as the Argentinian Mercedes Sosa song that played as models walked out. Photography: Jason Lloyd-Evans

Gabriela Hearst: in celebration of her tenth collection, Gabriela Hearst looked back to the design principles that have always been her calling card. Looking to be uniforms of Victorian coal miners and WWI and WWII factory workers, Hearst crafted a utilitarian yet beautifully crafted suite of pieces that included sleeveless coats in sherling-like cashmere and blazers in plaid shantung. To round things off, Hearst also unveiled five new handbag styles, including a lunchbox style, binoculars case and a camera bag that doubles up as clutch. Photography: Jason Lloyd-Evans

Dion Lee: with four simple words: lingerie, military, sensuality utility, Dion Lee summed up the ethos of his latest collection. A dynamic combination of contrasting elements, Lee’s womenswear and menswear were strong, yet seductive, and edgy yet wearable. Versatile button-up details, which cleverly revealed cut outs when undone, and sheer ribbed tops were amongst some of the highlights — as was jewellery designed by Jordan Askill and Lee’s own line of shoes. Photography: Jason Lloyd-Evans
