No animals were harmed in the making of this fur. It seems the designer resorted to a teddy bear factory to produce his daringly multi-coloured and exquisitely synthetic outerwear. In a peace offering to animal-lovers, the fur remained sumptuous but at the same time pop, printed in gaudy colours or shot through with lurex. The silhouette was not heavy for all the layering and overlapping on show here. There were no rules when it came to combinations. Chunky striped wool jumpers were worn with velvet palazzo pants, colours were reinvented and not found in nature and the chiffon and organza dress fabrics resembled sweet wrappers. The designer made daring and almost blinding colour choices for winter: from pea green to baby blue, through acid yellow, midnight blue, vermillion, purple and powder pink.
