Mesh turtlenecks, perfectly tailored cropped pants, buttoned-up coats and glossy knee-high boots made for a more grown up, put-together and luxurious Alexander Wang collection than we have seen in the past.

My selections from the DVF show may show a monochromatic black and white collection, but rest assured there was a beautiful colour palette on show of pink, bordeaux, yellow and raspberry.
"Thoughtful, quiet, a little more sober", is how Derek Lam described his new collection. With a sixties influence, Lam sent out gorgeous peacoats, pencil skirts and button-downs, and for a more modern vibe paired them with leather and high-tech outerwear.
The silhouettes were exaggerated versions of conservative Audrey Hepburn inspired shapes. Padded hips to accentuate curves, cut-out trenchcoats that were worn as dresses, and boxy black leather added an edge to an otherwise conventional collection.
The streamlined and slimming silhouette at the Victoria Beckham show was in contrast to the sporty edge of much of the collection with the use of polo collars and wide stripes. There was a little military reference too in not only the colour palette but also in the detailing on some of the coats and dresses.
