Firstly, lets all acknowledge how freakin' cosy the first two looks appear. Thank you.
The simplicity of this collection is what draws me to it so much, with the real focus being on texture and subtle, elegant shapes. Although some people may say the collection isn't striking, or bold, i feel the sophisticated layering and refined structures make up for this. I may as well admit that I never branch out into "colour" anyway, which may have helped this collection become a winner for me.

One again I have been drawn to a collection where bold colours and pattern are not the main focus (although I have branched out into some colour which is very rare). I've been trying to think of a way to describe this collection without using the word "cool", but as I see each look all I can think of is how effortlessly chic it is. My favourite looks being those with leather layered with a shearling jacket, the boxy appearance and mix of textures with a youthful and effortless chic vibe (not to mention the perfect colour palette) and the playful "totes" bags give me great hope for next seasons trends.
