Opening with vibrant jewel tones of electric blue, scarlet and canary yellow; body conscious silhouettes and luxe detailing such as dramatic ruffles, fur and lace accents dominated the runway. As the show progressed, the color palette became darker with inky blacks and dark metallic fabrics. Topped off with gloves and chunky jewelry, the Lanvin woman looks ready to party for the autumn.

Whether donning zipped up capes or shaggy coats, the Pugh woman knows how to bundle up for the upcoming winter.
