Destination: Runway

Gucci had its Cruise 2018 show in Florence, Louis Vuitton rocked the quaint town of Kyoto, Dior took a Navajo adventure in Los Angelea. In that spirit, our edit of the season’s best brings you on a wild trip around the world

The trench coat, an icon of British sensibility, was seen at major runway shows – with plenty of twists, of course. At Prada, buttons are dropped and the waist is nipped to emphasise a woman's body. Givenchy makes its sheer for a sense of lightness. Pair with leather pumps that are cut higher for a contemporary look, and wool culottes and a pair of glasses to up your style sensibility.


The check pattern was once banned in the mid-17th century, but that was eventually lifted, making iterations possible today. At Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière tweaks intersecting lines and crosses them at 45 degrees (instead of the usual 90) for his take on argyle prints. Burberry sticks to tradition but modernises the look by having the tartan print on a billowy wool coat. Our way of playing rebel? We'd pair checks with alternative textures – think patent leather – and jazz up classic patterns with statement extras.


A true cowboy would be proud of how western elements and varying shades of brown tones are taking over runways. Chez Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri sends down an army of models clad in swinging fringe and patchwork pieces. Coach 1941's version gets a more feminine focus with lighter fabrics. Jeremy Scott's take at Moschino sees a model donning a cowboy hat and western boots. We say: Start with a bandana and patchwork denim to get the look rolling.


Home to goddesses, heroines, and all things mystical, the ancient city of Greece often brings to mind strong female fatales. Dreamy dresses in romantic silhouettes are anchored with chunky brass jewellery – modern day protective armoury, if you will. The occasional filigree detail allows light (and femininity) to seep through. And almost needless to say, knee-skimming gladiator sandals are a must.
