Matthew Williamson showcased feminine prints inspired by zodiac signs and florals across silk embellished dresses, pencil skirts, cigarette trousers and jumpsuits. Very 1980s bohemian glamour.
If you're investing in anything make it Mongolian lamb fur or a silk button down maxi in mustard yellow.
Over on the Temperley London runway the vibe was nomadic. Next A/W, according to the Somerset-born designer, is about layering luxe geometric prints and wearing them top-to-toe.
While there was a nod to the feminine silhouette with beautiful jacquards and metallic, floral embroidered dresses there was an androgynous feel to the collection.
Blazers, jumpsuits, crisp white shirts and two-piece suits were practical (classic almost too good for work wear) and polished. British model Sophie Dahl walked the catwalk in a black velvet, floor-length coat and was all elegance.
As for Topshop Unique's A/W offering next season? Let's just say it ticks boxes for girls who: love a bit of retro (pinafores, polo necks, plaid, leather, florals, high-waisted trousers, shearling), need only to be wearing look-at-me-outerwear, knee-high boots and dressy cocktail dresses.
Yes, there's something for all women who rely on high-end high street when it comes to doing their favourite trends. But then, when did Topshop fail us on this front? Precisely.
Philip Green (Topshop's big boss man) had his FRow clique of off-duty models in tow to watch the catwalk - yes, Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn and Alexa Chung - which very almost distracted from the collection itself. Almost.
