WHO: Roland Mouret
BEG, BORROW OR STEAL: Origami style folds and pleats added razor sharp edges to blazers and coats, while furs and feather collars added to the idea of "building a barrier around yourself". There were slinky, hip-hugging dresses in sherbet shades for those that aren't afraid of the cold (some with reindeer shapes imprinted on them), but it was the flared skirts worn with military-inspired, belted jackets and peplum tops that made us want to be part of the Mouret army. That, and the six new styles of 'R' shoes from his first footwear collection.
F-ROW: Hamish Bowles, Natalie Massanet, Suzy Menkes.
VERDICT: While the shape of the feminine form is usually hidden under the layering of clothes, the sharp lines of Mouret's impeccable tailoring meant that he got the balance between wrapping up and staying chic spot on. We know who we want to dress us next season.
