London: Christopher Bailey presented a Pre-Fall collection of varying textures, new lengths and a shorter, feminine, structured silhouette. Coats were the focus point with closely shaved leopard printed sheepskins, prestige Highland shaggy fur, calfskin jackets with huge horn buttons and, a trench in suede with a multi-coloured beaded yoke and collar. The statement for the season was not only about coats, but also the clever juxtaposition of materials, from the equisite, delicate lace and chiffons to shaggy shearlined aviator jackets. Chiffon dresses, skirts and blouses were made from guipure lace while a drop-waist dress was cleverly cut in blue-and-white clover-print. This was all about the coat and the jacket wrapping around the most feminine of dresses and skirts save for the skinniest of pants. – Lizzy Bowring
