At Chanel, Lanvin, Fendi and Alexander Wang, the collections utilised sheer lace for longer silhouettes in blacks and soft pinks, while other labels offered cheekier getups in pastel shades. Prada championed its ugly-chic glory days with a line-up of summery sheer and feathered coats. Giorgio Armani sexed it up with silky slips, while Moschino played on the idea of sensual revelation (the print on one nightgown-inspired dress shows a pair of gloved hands hiking the front of it up to show off the wearer’s gams).

Designers are giving serious cues on how to dress up your swimwear. The idea is to use your one- or two-piece swimsuit as intimates. At Miu Miu, they were paired with a waterproof coat. Christopher Kane teased with a cut-out dress, while Fendi simply covered its ruffled piece with a sheer skirt (so much for modesty). If you’ve got an enviable midriff you want to show off, simply cover your bra with an oversized shirt. Effortless!

The triangle bra was a hit on the runways of 3.1. Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang, styled effortlessly with shorts, khaki trousers or a wrap-around skirt. At Prada, the looks said “beauty and brains” – the bra was preppy and embellished.

Think shapelier silhouettes with decadent detailing. Giorgio Armani dazzled with a sequinned pyjama suit, Gucci’s standout piece was top heavy with ruffles, while Fendi’s was all about relaxed fun. 3.1. Phillip Lim came up with a practical white cotton poplin tunic, complete with an embroidered emblem.
