DESIGNER: Hakaan

INSPIRATION: '80s/'90s masculine tailoring-meets-feminine-body-con.

TOP LOOKS: All the fitted mini-dresses - some with pleated skirts, some with cutouts, some chiffon, some embellished, some asymmetrical. Whatever your preference, there was something for every bright young thing (we especially liked the wet-effect leather number on Natalia). We also loved the orange lip models sported.

WHO WAS THERE: Natalia Vodianova was stunning on the catwalk. The young Turkish designer showed his serious fashion cred by also pulling in models Freja, Mariacarla and Natasha Poly. Did we mention Daphne Guinness sat front row?

WHAT WE THOUGHT: Hakaan already has a celebrity fan club (Emma Watson recently wore one of his mini-dresses to the Elle Style Awards), and this collection will certainly garner more attention for the young designer. The androgynous, loosely tailored pantsuits won't be hitting the red carpets any time soon, but those thigh-skimming mini-dresses in a palette of black, white, red and grey and fabrics from leather to flippy-skirted chiffon are sure to make starlets' must-have lists for autumn.
