Initial reaction:

When lovers share their wardrobe, with girls in plaid and boys in duck egg blue coats. Boxy leather bikers anchored wispy chiffon hems, and striped suiting for both came in rich autumnal reds and brown.

How they wore it:

In tough, heavy layers and wrapped up from the New York bitterness: leather jackets over asymmetric sequined tops and heavy cotton handkerchief hem skirts. Damask coats and trousers in oxblood and platinum were worn over layers of glossy leather and heavy matte cotton. Cocooning wool coats in plaid and a stormy sky blue were tied tight at the waist

Silhouette:

Camel coats curved gently at hems, creating a subtly rounded silhouette, while shrunken blazers only just buttoned up at the waist, so that lapels and tails flayed out in an X.  Lines were heavy and defined, which under multiple layers and textures created an almost masculine finish.

Stand out looks:

The punk-inspired thick striped suiting, with trousers scrunched into socks and lace up boots for the boys, and left wide and languid for the girls. An oxblood shrunken wool biker, with zips that encircled the elbows, and a super tight leather biker that felt almost clinical in its ridged line, amid a collection of heavy, languid layers.

Model behaviour:

Devon Windsor closing the show in a long burgundy leather biker, shorn off at the hip to reveal burgundy layers beneath, and a wispy printed chiffon dress of blue and red, pointed pixie boots at her feet.
