As fashion shows across the globe grind to a near halt, here is a comprehensive selection of stylish trends from the Autumn/Winter 2020 runways that you can enjoy from the comfort (and safety) of your own home
Navigating fashion runways in the midst of a global pandemic is no easy feat. Disrupted, the fashion industry is seeking out new digital approaches for future fashion weeks. This selection features an array of trends that are synonymous with this season (checks, trench coats, capes, shearling coats) and other versatile styles (leather, skirt suits, vests, prints) for the fashion-conscious crowd.

A LITTLE SHEEPISH
Shearling coats are popular this season, especially with Hermès, Bibhu Mohapatra and Loewe. As
an especially effective garment to keep you warm, it is the cosy alter- native to bulkier puffer jackets. This year’s selection of coats comes in a range of styles and colours. Some are worn with a cinched waist while others are oversized.
Leather is a classic autumn choice, thanks to its durability and timeless look. Salvatore Ferragamo’s short- sleeved leather shirt and Balencia- ga’s Matrix-like trench coat are a sharp contrast to Feng Chen Wang’s suit with its pop of scarlet and Moschino’s chains and massive gold zipper-adorned biker outfit.
CHECK ME OUT
From tartans and plaids to Prince of Wales checks and trendy houndstooths, this fall staple has made
its way onto almost every runway. For men and women, this checked pattern makes quite a statement on suits, as seen with brands such as Tory Burch and Chanel. Meanwhile, Burberry layers different checks, creating quite a statement look.
From scarlet and carmine to vermilion, red is the season’s principal colour. Seen in all styles, from chic suits to casual jumpers, the colour is embraced through the dramatic flair of Givenchy’s feathered outfit and Rodarte’s satiny crescent print dress.
ON THE FRINGE
Whether you want to dress up or dress down, tassels and fringes are here to stay. Beaded, sequined and glittery, Celine and Fendi’s knee- length fringed dresses are great for a night out, whereas Guo Pei’s tasselled outfit in subdued olive and Jil Sander’s all-white affair are equally scintillating.
