London: A catwalk covered in autumnal leaves told us Jasper Conran was embracing the fall season with open arms. Autumnal hues drifted down the catwalk; olives, rust, russet and burning amber evoking images of autumnal rambles through the countryside and wood burning fires. But this wasn’t your normal countryside stroll; rich, lavish fabrics oozed elegance– his girls cloaked in head to toe colour ensembles, layered for a cold day – but never bulky – topped off with a wide brim fedora. The occasional bright print broke up the collection – violet pansies or geometric repeats on A-line tea dresses and matching separates in sumptuous silk or velvet devoré. A plethora of tactile fabrics lent the collection an intense desirability- from patch worked suede to a stunning haircalf set in shimmering emerald green. Refined and quietly confident, Jasper Conran has Autumn sorted. – Anna Ross
