How could you be anything but happy on beholding this perfect, petal pink coat dress from Dior? A beautiful, modern mix of romantic colour and killer tailoring, this feels both feminine and powerful. When I grow up and become a high-powered business woman, this is exactly how I want to dress. Heck, this is exactly how I want to dress right now.
There were other interesting expressions of femininity too, like with Peter Pilotto’s graphic prints and bold colours, edged with the sparkliest, girliest sequins (top pic, centre). More traditional, perhaps, but every bit as beautiful, this Dolce & Gabbana polka dot mini dress was another favourite – pattern plus whimsy in a style that’s both wearable and fun (those flounces!)? Yes please.
The monochrome colour palette was also seen from David Koma (centre) and Oscar De La Renta (right, above); loving that coat with the playsuit!

Not quite edgy enough for you? Rock n roll is also emerging as a new season theme; check out this Givenchy cut-out dress worn with over-the-knee leather and strappy lace up boots as the perfect example.
SS15, let’s be having you.
