Looks to Love 3. The Peg Trouser

2. The Flying Jacket

1. The Jumpsuit When all-in-ones hit our radar in Spring 09, we were very sceptical. They looked chic on models, but would we be able to pull them off? That was then. Now we know jumpsuits are a great alternative to dresses. Stylist Sarah Wharton says: “In essence, it’s a man’s utility outfit which, draped over a woman’s body, is just about the sexiest thing you can wear.”

All-in-one £49 853.9774

6 0844 842 2222

Not quite brave enough to tackle the harem pant? Try the peg trouser instead. These tapered ankle grazers are roomy on the hip then nip in just above the ankle to create a whole new, so-now silhouette. Team with heels and a boxy jacket for Spring 10’s take on career-girl chic.

Trousers £27 839.3699

And to this season’s unlikely style icon: Amelia Earhart. The subject of several Hollywood biopics, the Thirties female pilot is having a moment. Or rather, her ubiquitous flying jacket is. Seen in several incarnations at Alexander Wang, Loewe and Just Cavalli, this one captures her adventurer’s spirit without falling into Biggles’ territory.

Blue Denim

What's the look? This season, designers are staying true to denim’s casual credentials with knotted shirts and frayed hemlines. At DSquared2, neon blazers were dressed down with retro rockabilly capris, while Stella McCartney showcased button-fronted pencil skirts and espadrilles.

Twenty8twelve

One

man & His

muse

Introducing Paule Ka designer Serge Cajfinger, who was inspired to create the new Paule Ka collection for LA redoute by a modern-day icon – Agyness Deyn Words by Nicola wood Serge Cajfinger is in his element when we meet one autumnal day in Paris. Sat in a whiter than white room, all dressed in black, the Paule Ka designer co-ordinates well with his mainly monochrome creations for La Redoute which surround him. Journalists from around Europe are competing to get to him. It’s La Redoute’s press launch and despite all the hoo-ha Serge is not in the least fazed, easily answering all questions thrown at him in English and French. Since starting Paule Ka in 1987, Serge has always looked to iconic women to inspire him. When asked to design for La Redoute he started the process with a very specific muse in mind.

“It was always about Agyness. She’s a stylish combination of masculine and feminine. She’s just a little bit Marilyn Monroe. Or she was until she dyed her hair black – all of a sudden she looked very Jackie O. I wanted to embrace that she can be both the wife and mistress at the same time,” he explains. The aesthetic of the collection is similar to Paule Ka but its prices are more accessible, especially with the accessories. Something that Serge is keen to emphasise: “I really enjoyed designing the accessories. I’ve never had the chance to make sneakers before!” Asked to describe the collection in a few short words, he says: “It’s very 1980s. Agyness is very 1980s and fashion is currently very 1980s.” So this would explain the monochrome palette with hits of fuchsia and cobalt blue. “I didn’t like colour before but now I am loving it. That’s fashion for you. It’s all about playing a game. British women are more playful than French women who are much more traditional in the way they dress,” he says, smiling. It’s fitting then that Agyness is the model – a British woman showcasing a French collection. “The look was very different to Agyness’s own style but she knew how to play it,” Serge adds. And how does he advise women like you and I to ‘play it’? “Trust yourself and don’t worry about what other people think.” Good advice.

Figure-hugging Turquoise made an impact on the runway at AShley Isham

Catwalk photography CHRIS MOORE

Celebrate the return of those summertime blues by laying to rest autumn’s sober spectrum of black and grey. Spring 10’s catwalks were awash with lagoon-like shades. Incarnations of the trend were bright, bold and blocked (Antonio Berardi) or structured accent pieces offsetting loose-fitting separates (Stella McCartney). If in doubt, follow trailblazer Giorgio Armani’s lead: he was happy to sit iris and azure shades alongside one another. Whatever your body shape, there’s definitely a hue for you. Just make sure it’s blue.

there is that other side to me - the hippy. I usually save this more laidback me for shoots abroad or holidays and just hint to it in my city life through a tassled bag or by wearing a printed scarf around my neck. But Spring 10 will allow me to embrace my inner hippy more overtly as the catwalks were peppered with references to the Seventies.”

Trend Trial

From off-white to biscuit, three women test out this season’s muted colour palette

24 0844 842 2222

Cool khaki

Keri Proubert, 29 Drawing inspiration from DKNY’s simple fuss-free formula, Lizanne put a utilitarian spin on petite Keri’s outfit, layering a plain khaki shirt dress over drawstring shorts with rope-tie detail “the little shorts peeping out highlighted her fantastic legs”, Lizanne said, and put a smart spin on an essentially super-casual outfit. With the option to wear the dress on its own or in a shorter tunic style layered over shorts or trousers, it’s the perfect city break capsule outfit, which can take you easily into the night.

Catwalk photography Chris moore

DKNY

The catwalks spoke in hushed tones for Spring 10, whispering quiet shades of nude, cream and khaki as the non-colour colours of the season. Chanel shrugged off its signature monochrome palette for muted tones of biscuit and caramel and even print-happy Pucci made way for neutrals, as colour took a back seat, appearing mainly in the form of accents and colour-pops. Stylist Lizanne Harris walked three La Redoute readers through one of this season’s hottest trends.

“I love this dress. It’s so light and perfect for summer” Jo, 27

caramel swirl

Josie Yates, 27 Lizanne flattered Josie’s honey locks with a carefully chosen caramel and toffee combination inspired by the house of Chloé. “The mix of the tones was really fabulous, not only a big trend but also one that complemented her skin tone beautifully”. A shorter hemline was counter-balanced with a statement coat layered over, demonstrating how the archetypal shirt dress can be smartened up. A wear-withanything tote bag and city flats in an accent of dark chocolate polished up this laid-back look to perfection.

I’m being whisked away by my boyfriend for a romantic weekend getaway and I haven’t a clue what I should take! Sarah, Birmingham Lucky old you. As romance is on the cards, I suggest you take a long, hard look at your lingerie situation. Make sure it’s in tip-top condition; pretty bras and matching knickers needn’t cost the earth, but will guarantee your mini-break some extra zing. Nothing spells PASSION KILLER more than a greying pair of old pants.

Q

I’ve recently lost a lot of weight and dropped from a size 16/18 to a size 10, but now I need a whole new wardrobe. Where should I start? Jo, Glasgow

Q

It’s that time of the year I hate – between seasons – and I’m either freezing cold when I leave the house or boiling hot by the time I get to work. How can I second-guess the weather? Jane, London Well, I can’t magic up your very own Michael Fish, but I can let you into a clever secret: a simple spring knit will work wonders for the daily commute. Layer up with as many items as you wish (cardigan, blazer, etc), and peel off when your temperature gauge threatens another hot flush.

A great fitting pair of jeans will be an invaluable staple, but choose carefully. Keep them straight-legged and super-fitted to show off your fab new figure. Now that the hard work is done, you don’t want to be buying bigger than you actually are.

Q

I’m after a lightweight coat I can wear right through to the summer . Have you any suggestions that will look smart-but-casual? Ali, croydon A classic parka will perfect your look. It’s lightweight but can be dressed up as easily as it can be dressed down. Also, its über-cool credentials will earn your wardrobe plenty of fashion kudos.
