Kicking off day four at London Fashion Week with her trademark soft lines and delicate fabrics was none other than the chic staple in every smart girls wardrobe, Nicole Farhi. Using her knack for giving loose cuts just the right amount of oomph slouchy camel coats were belted and Grecian inspired long-line shifts knotted at the shoulder creating a sensuous fan of gathering on the bias.

The pretty muted tones of sand, putty, stone and charcoal were revved up with the injection of neon piping to collars and a helluva lot of black patent leather, which seemed rather practical for the usual rainy Autumn/Winter months.

The standout piece for me was the almost whisper thin mesh and crystal long sleeved maxi tube dress, with the bodice smothered in the tiniest of gold flecks that caught the light beautifully. Finishing just above the ankle it would be fantastic with a chunky heeled boot and big coat for Mary Kate Olsen meets Courtney Love glamour.

Favourite Pieces:

Charcoal tapered trousers, fantastically sexy with a stiletto

Smudgy floral cerise long-line shift dress, with high neckline and loose sleeves adding an edgy touch to avoid being too sweet.

All the super-light mesh layers worn over dresses, skirts and tees – definitely a quick and easy way to update you wardrobe.
