After decades of being in the style spotlight, stripes and checks temporarily take a back seat, so instead of adding another variant of the same to your repertoire, why not look to premium brands Paul Smith, Dries Van Noten and D&G for something a little more artistic?

The catwalks were awash with florals, foliage and Jackson Pollock influenced abstract designs. Shirts and t-shirts make perfect canvases, especially for the random marks created by splattered ink, while blazers and fine knitwear are great platforms for the kind of soft blooming patterns seen at Etro. If all over print is a little too bold, a subtle flash of print on a collar, cuff or trim is still a perfectly respectable nod to the trend.


Fans of romantic fashion are well placed for sartorial success among the candied sweetness of the S/S’11 catwalks, where light silks, taffetas and chiffons mingled with pretty lace, crystal embellishment and florals. At Chanel, dancer skirts, feathers and lashings of jewellery combined to sugary effect, but were pulled back from the brink of ladylike refinement with slick leather leggings, bold accessories and slashed fabrics. Mulberry rescued Peter Pan collars and floral appliqué from the realm of saccharine with studded ankle boots, while Julien MacDonald added some spice to proceedings by slashing the fronts of his dresses dangerously short, leaving the back trailing like kites dancing in the wind.
