Once again, checks were a key part of the autumn winter collections. From the bright red checked coats and capes at Moschino C&C and Burberry, to classic tartans at Sonia Rykiel and Jean Paul Gaultier, there are a million and one ways to work the check this autumn.

Egg shaped coats, oversized sleeves and tulip skirts were just a few ways volume was introduced to the autumn/winter collections. Not a necessary unique trend, but it is interesting to see how the focus shifts from skirt and coat hems to the oversized shoulder and sleeve details as seen at Lanvin and Stella McCartney or the exaggerated hips at Louis Vuitton.

Usually the reserve of spring and summer, the catwalks were dominated by vibrant oranges, pinks, greens and purples. Whilst Burberry and Versace displayed dresses and outerwear in bold brights, House of Holland and Bottega Veneta offered up sugary sweet tweed separates and dresses. I'm particularly taken by Burberry's coats - would anything else be better at brightening up a winter day?

So that's my offerings for the next season...what is standing out for you so far? And how do you think they will translate these designs to the high street?
