Sixties French Riviera, easy glamour, Romy Schneider's character in La Piscine; These were all the starting points for Tory Burch’s standout SS14 collection. The A-line linen mini shifts oozed the brand's shiny, Upper East Side polish to perfection. It was typical Tory in a good way, and we’re sure the AW14 offerings will be equally polished.
 Flirty miniskirts and androgynous styling graced the catwalk at Victoria Beckham SS14. The key motif for the collection was the equilateral triangle, heat bonded on to organza tops and repeated on chic totes. We’re looking forward to seeing what her concept will be this season.

Mixing laser cutting and 3D-printing in various forms, the design trio enmeshed symbolic patterns together to form new patterns for their SS14 collection. It was structurally eye-pleasing and strong. Let’s hope this season is equally as solid.

Decidedly feminine in style, Posen is a designer who sticks with what he knows - flutter sleeves, copious ruffles, bias silhouettes, corsetry, and delicate floral prints, all evoking a sense of soft romanticism. We’re looking forward to another fairy-tale collection.

The designer’s SS14 collection was as quirky and theatrical as ever, with an abundance of leopard print and Liberty-inspired micro-florals. Voluminous multi-layered organza and mesh ball gowns added to the fun — let’s hope the good times continue for AW14.

DVF threw a lot into her SS14 collection - safari prints, rope bound stitching, reams of colourful rhombus print, and python print galore. We’re looking forward to an equally eclectic mix of AW14 party pieces from New York's grand dame.
