Draping emerged as the key focus for SS10, showing on the runways of Burberry, Chloe and Stella McCartney. Appearing in the form of ruching, twisting and ruffles, the trend was kept minimal with blocked colours. Soft silhouettes were teamed with stacked platforms and pushed down socks, the key mini-trend to be seen in this spring. Slouchy satchel bags and delicate gold jewellery will compliment the style and add the perfect finishing touch.
With the weather turning a wintry shade of grey it seems the clothes are following suit and this isn't a bad thing. Instead of shying away from the grey area the stylish new trend is all about embracing it. As a lighter alternative to the dark blacks of fall, it can be worked with your winter staples or as a full head to toe statement. For the perfect look choose exposed zips, distressed fabrics and team bold accessories with a tough-glam edge.
It's no secret that The Fashion Pack have a soft spot for Ashish. I'm not sure whether it was the sequins or singer VV Brown doing a 6 song performance that made us fall in love with their AW 2009 collection.
Thanks to the girls at Grazia, here is a sneak peak of the Ashish shoes that we spotted at the Arcadia press day yesterday that are set to be included in the Topshop Boutique shoe range in stores this summer.
What do you think? Can you see yourself sporting a leopard or zebra print wedge come fall?
