Now that the summer has decided to keep hiding, it’s an unavoidable fact that we may be reaching out for autumn fashion far sooner than is healthy for our sanity. So, what are we likely to see in our shops in Autumn Winter 2023 based on the designer catwalks?

Well, it’s certainly good news for those of you who prefer understated.

Vogue has declared the season’s biggest look as “pared-back, everyday clothes, executed in best-in-class fabrics”.

“The runways at Bottega Veneta, Miu Miu and Loewe were all filled with outfits one could easily imagine throwing on before heading out to take on the day,” writer Ellie Pithers gushed.

The difference between the catwalk and the High Street was in the details that elevated them – “a pair of socks rendered in peachy-soft leather at Bottega Veneta, or a chain attaching the hem of an oversized white shirt to a shoulder at Loewe, lending its silhouette an artful ripple”.

For fashionistas praying for the opulence of the Roaring 20s after the Great Depression to be mirrored in the post-Covid era, the war in Ukraine means a sense of anxiety prevails in the fashion collections.
