The question isn’t if you should wear blue, it’s which shade of blue. Designers offered a wide range, with colours like turquoise, as seen at Valentino and Nina Ricci, taking centre stage. For chic evening looks, designers like Giorgio Armani and Saint Laurent paired inky blue with black. Plus, the designers in London focused on a special shade of the colour to honour the late designer Richard Nicoll, who always incorporated the hue.

What’s more the print can be found on just about anything from coats, skirts, dresses and suits to flannel shirts and crop tops.
The Power of Red
According to our favourite designers, power red should be worn from head-to-toe this season, accessories included! Max Mara and Fendi presented power red this way, with the latter providing a knee-length coat, matching statement boots and bag. What’s more Givenchy’s first collection without Riccardo Tisci guiding the way is entirely red. Tod’s, Monse, Victoria Beckham and many more have helped make crimson the shade du jour. And armed with the knowledge it suits all skin tones, there’s nothing we need to wait for.'
