DESIGNER: D&G

INSPIRATION: 80s pop colours and the alphabet - letters and words not only adorned the catwalk but were all over the tops, dresses and skirts, while symbols and letters were scrambled together on quirky jewellery pieces like chunky necklaces.

TOP LOOKS: Without a doubt, the pom-pom-style, feathered ra-ra skirts which closed the show and came in a rainbow of hues. We'll take them all, please. Of course, the knit dresses, sweatshirt-style tops and pencil skirts might be more useful...

WHO WAS THERE: The usual smattering of front-row fashion faces.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: The collection was fun and playful, which is just what we expect from D&G. It was full of flirty looks (those pouf-ball skirts), romantic silhouettes (flowing chiffon maxi-dresses with pussybow ties) and club-kid wear (tiny miniskirts and leggings emblazoned with lettering in highlighter-bright hues). The combination of huge lettering and bright colours make some of these pieces hard to pull off, but hey, when you're young and beautiful like the D&G girl is, you can get away with pretty much anything.
