Staged on a set kitted out to look like a Fifties home, complete with a cream-coloured rotary dial phone, kidney-shaped coffee tables, flocked wallpaper and orange-shaded lamps, Erdem Moralioglu presented his Autumn/Winter 2015 show, inspired by artist Robin Brown's exhibition, The Collector and stars of yesteryear like Kim Novak and Romy Schneider. The clothes didn't stick just to the Fifties but drew from a variety of eras, from the satin frock-coats with antique linen hems and strapless prom dresses to Edwardian-necked lace pencil dresses and patent go-go boots, it was a veritable nostalgia mash-up. Outerwear comprised of raw-edge tweed numbers in shades of plum and cerise and ruffle or sheepskin-edged leopard jackets. The genius behind the line-up was the blending of everyday wear with the fanciest finery - knitted polo necks melted into glittering satin ball skirts while coats started in sturdy double-faced cashmere and ended in degrade embroidered silk, proving that you can have the best of both worlds at the same time.
Who we saw: Dianna Agron and Alexa Chung.
What they wore: A floral printed fit-and-flare frock for Dianna and a PVC-zipped pencil skirt and cropped black and white sweater for Alexa.
