The New Prime
The “ageless generation” (women of 40 and 50) hit the runways this season in place of SS17’s octogenarians. When Belgian designer Dries Van Noten staged his 100th show in Paris, he sent a bevy of familiar faces down the catwalk: Amber Valletta, Nadja Auermann, Erin O’Connor and many more. All hail the midult.
Hitting the High Street
H&M is slowly taking over our wardrobe, with the high street giant owning brands such as COS, Monki, & Other Stories and more. Their latest offering is ARKET. Described as a “modern day market”, the first store has just opened on London’s Regent Street, with further European locations opening in the coming weeks and months. The fashion and homeware stores will feature cafés, offering Nordic-style food with a focus on vegan and vegetarian options; www.arket.com. River Island teams up with designer Ashish this month for its latest “design forum” collection, available exclusively online at www.riverisland.com … Colette, the cult Parisian concept store set to close in December, teams up with H&M on a nine-piece capsule collection. The famous Colette blue is to the fore, as is a mixture of wearable staples. From September 14 … Kim Gordan, front-woman of Sonic Youth, launches an organic silk and cotton co-lab featuring her own artwork with & Other Stories.

So if you give yourself a break from buying expensive things simply because they’re what’s in vogue, you’re giving yourself the luxury of saving for something classic. Some trends we’ll be avoiding this season? Poetic statements on clothes, enormous trousers, mini-me dressing and logos on nails, to name but a few …
There’s a new boot on the scene and it’s sky high and bright red. Red boots first emerged on the Vêtements runway last season. Some are sock-like (we like the shorter ones) They’re strangely flattering and therefore manage to make absolutely everything look better.
