Oh HELLO Prada Mary Janes! We love you!
Gucci's low-slung boyish trousers
This eclectic collection was achingly cool, with androgynous jackets and trousers styled up with geek-chic glasses, bobble hats and berets. We loved the slouchy tailored pants, particularly in bright red, worn low on the hips with a dropped crotch. They reminded me of a pair of Levi's Sta-Prest trousers that I bought in the Nineties from a skinhead at a scooter rally - if only I still had them! Also keep an eye out for the hairy shoe trend - Gucci's were a reworking of its classic loafer in goat hair (people eat goat, so that's a bi-product if you were worried about it) but will also be available in faux fur for the veggies amongst you. Not as easy to try, but definitely destined for It Shoe stardom.
Prada's pointy Mary Janes
It was hard to pin point what we loved the most about Prada - those side ponytail buns! The ribbon brooches! - but when it came down to it, we fell hardest for the shoes. Who knew that we needed a pair of pastel coloured pointy Mary Jane shoes with rubber soles in our lives so badly? Well, we do, alright? The set mimicked the colours, divided into rooms of peach, pink and pale green, and we were even served matching pastel bread sandwiches. Those shoes were even more amazing when we got up close and personal with them the day after the show. Now we just need to decide which colour combination and heel height was our favourite. Decisions, decisions…
Tod's marsala leather jackets
Pantone - the world authority on colour - declared 'marsala' to be the colour of the year for 2015 (it's basically burgundy, if you were wondering) and we've seen it a-plenty on the a/w2015 catwalks. If you haven't got a pair of burgundy shoes next season, you're in trouble! Our favourite incarnation was at Tod's on beautiful butter-soft biker jackets though, some using intarsia leather where contrasting pieces are beautifully inlaid to create a pattern. #want
