Kilts, tartan and knitwear gave a nod to traditional Scottish style.

TOP LOOKS: Belted knit dresses, cashmere coats (the particular highlight was the half cashmere, half mink version), tartan with ruffled edges, fur snoods and leather skirts teamed with fitted, jersey tops.

WHO WAS THERE: Katie Holmes looking lovely on the front row in a silk jumpsuit.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: The neutral colour palette kept things cool and contemporary but the soft textures gave this collection a comfortable, easy to wear feel. Just what we want in our autumn/winter wardrobes.
