One of the biggest trends of the season

Embrace your inner hippie, because this winter, the '70s is here to stay. References from the disco and hippie era came thick and fast, with Joni Mitchell-inspired collections seen at Chloé and Burberry Prorsum.  Think: paisley prints, tassels and lots of fringing. 


Patchwork, patterns and bold prints were a strong focus at Burberry Prorsum. Fringed boots and bags (in suede, of course) completed the folkloric-inspired collection.


Soft, sweeping dresses in peaches, taupes and neutrals were mixed back with waistcoats and neckties at Chloé. Creative Diirector Clare Waight Keller delivered an assured and perfectly romantic '70s collection.


Etro presented a rich colour palette and lean '70s silhouettes for autumn/winter.  Metallic brocades, patchwork and luxurious textures were combined together in an opulent collection not for the faint hearted.

Alberta Feretti

Crocheted gilets and soft, pastel-coloured dresses at Alberta Ferretti gave the overall collection a whimiscal and feminine vibe.  


At Gucci we saw muted florals teamed with fur-lined clogs.  The nonchalant-looking models might have been slightly dishevelled, but they oozed an effortless sense of cool.
