1. Golden arches at Moschino
We love a show with a sense of humour, and Jeremy Scott’s first for Moschino, with prints taken from the packaging of oven chips, cheesy crisps and the world’s most famous fast food joint, certainly came with a huge helping of irony. Plus we all got an iPhone cover that looked like a portion of McDonalds chips. Tasty.
2. Drone cameras at Fendi
Them taking a picture of us taking a picture of them…the remote controlled drone cameras hovering above us at Fendi certainly made great Instafodder, and also captured the show for the website’s live stream.
3. If you go down to the woods today…
Grab your old copy of Enid Blyton’s The Faraway Tree next season, because there’s Enchanted Wood inspiration all over the place. From Marni’s feathered dresses and Sergio Rossi’s presentation in a magical copse, to Dolce & Gabbana’s squirrel, owl and fox motifs, the forest is your friend for a/w2014.
4. Retro wallpaper prints at Prada
Our favourite collections from Miuccia are the ones brimming with prints you might have found in your Gran’s living room circa 1972, so we fell in love with the yellows, purples and browns on show in Milan last week. We’re also hoping she makes some cushions in the same fabric. Fingers crossed…
5. Geometric leather at Tod’s
From a distance we thought this was cotton, but up close we discovered the finest, thinnest leather you can imagine. And it looked absolutely beautiful cut and bonded into these linear designs.
6. Eat your heart out, Pharrell
Emporio Armani showed MASSIVE hats on the catwalk – they reminded us of the Vivienne Westwood one that has been glued to Pharrell Williams’ head for what seems like a month – and the InStyle team was lucky enough to have a little try on after the show. Each one has a smaller elasticated section inside so that the hat stays perched on top of your head instead of covering your eyes.
Yeah, yeah, we know you’re already thinking pink – it’s been the most prevalent colour for the last two seasons – but it’s staying put for a/w2014 too. Fendi’s oversized fuchsia parka set our pulses racing, and if we were celebrities, we’d be fighting over Gucci’s dusky pink leather bejewelled confection to wear on the red carpet.
