Leather is always a dominant factor in the autumn winter collections, but this time around latex and pvc also played a rather large role. Latex paillettes were built up on dresses at Prada and took the place of polka dots on a number of pieces at Marc Jacobs. And at Christopher Kane had a special material produced to create sheer patterned dresses and separates. Overall, wet is definitely a look for those brave enough to sport it!

In stark contrast to the latex, leather and lace that dominated many catwalks, there was a little puritanical vibe showing through - high necklines, white collars and simple, modest shapes. So if obviously sexy styles aren't your kind of thing, this could definitely be the look for you.
So that's part one of my trend round up...anything caught your fancy so far? What are you looking forward to wearing come September?
