DESIGNER: Jena Theo.

INSPIRATION: The freezing cold of the winter season was clearly on the designers' minds. Suffer for fashion? Maybe, but Jena Theo won't let you freeze.

TOP LOOKS: The beetle-shell inspired, oversized, stuffed jacket. The perfect antidote to this winter's classic camel coats.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: As soon as the opening line of Black Sabbath's 'War Pigs' ("Generals gathered in their masses /Just like witches at black masses") came blasting out, we knew we were in for a bombastic ride. After two seasons dominated by understated minimalism - even in the famously adventurous city of London - it was exciting to be at a show packed full of drama. Jena Theo's woman is clearly a rock chic with a confident attitude and a fearless eye for fashion. The label's signature soft sculpture was present in everything from the short, sexy dresses to attention stealing jackets. This was a collection for an adult woman who can't face totally letting go of her teenage goth phase - but in a good way.
