We round up the A/W trends coming from the New York runways of Mulberry, Zac Posen and Monique Lhuillier

Mulberry

The inherent Britishness of Mulberry seemed all the more evident as their A/W collection was transported to New York. Creative Director Emma Hill cited 'naughty Royals' as an influence and there were Princess Margaret bouffant hairstyles, Fair Isle knits and plenty of buttoned-up chic. There was an updated Alexa bag and more than a few frocks and shoes we reckon we'll be seeing on Ms Chung before long. As ever, the bags had arm candy must-have written all over and there were new colours such as deep purple and leopard prints to choose from.

Monique Lhuillier

Monique Lhuillier chose the theme of Asian Warrior for her A/W show and the models strutted their stuff with scraped back top knots and scarlet lips. Chinese red and glossy black provided a colour theme for much of the show which started out tough with short, sharp dresses such as this mini with a red metallic dragon depiction and later softened up into romantic tulle gowns with floral embellishment. It was these floor-skimming dresses that showed why Lhuillier is such a celebrity red carpet favourite.

Zac Posen

It was less of the glitzy gowns of last season at Zac Posen as his A/W show took a daywear heavy direction. Gone were the long red carpet numbers and in their place shorter, flirty minidresses. Daywear separates came in the shape of cape-style coats and wide-legged pants in camel and caramel shades.
