London: For Autumn Winter, Amanda Wakeley drew influence from the Antarctic suburbs of Mongolia- “ I was inspired by the textural layering of the Nomadic tribespeople and the prevalence of extreme light and dark in the region.” This translated into a gorgeously tactile and textured collection- luxurious cashmere brushed and felted into ribbed merino wools, draped around the body asymmetrically creating covetable sweaters. Trousers came in floor sweeping proportions, some in a contemporary tartan jacquard creating a harmony of colour and texture.  Head-to-toe colour separates looked modern and fresh- whilst their sumptuous coatings created a luxe mood, cocooning the body in oversized silhouettes. For eveningwear looks, Wakeley used a darker palette in fabrics such as calf hair and leather. Edges were embellished with raw wool tassels- reaffirming the collections nomadic origins. – Anna Ross
