Initial reaction:

Victorian ladies getting hot and heavy.

Atmosphere:

A dilapidated beach (including lifeguard chair and scorching heat) with a sweeping deep blue curtain as the ocean.

Runway:

Black gravel with the biggest fashion magazines' September issues buried underneath, along with a few squelched cigarettes.

Unexpected details:

Jewel embellished hiker sandals, floral Bermuda shorts, Victorian black lace dresses and tasseled military jackets.

Reminded us of:

Downton Abbey on the black beaches of Iwo Jima.

References:

Burning Man and artist Paul McCarthy's work White Snow.

Soundtrack:

Aphex Twin Icct Hedral (Philip Glass Orchestration).

Weather:

A raging thunderstorm and sheets of hard rain outside added to the dark mood inside.

Least likely to:

Be wearable in summer - then again, they’ll come into stores when it’s still winter.

Model behaviour: 

Sky Ferreira and Cara Delevingne, walking her first show of the season.
