My next stop on the top trend trail is in pastel camp, not merely because it's set to continue as a directional statement into the winter (on the authority of style.com at least) but because the pastel palette remains among the most timeless of classics, always giving clothing an ethereal, feminine quality when it comes back into vogue. The autumn/ winter 2013 shows offered a plethora of interpretations, including fifties silver screen chic at Louis Vuitton and sumptuous textured fur at Jonathan Saunders. Certainly classic cinematic-inspired couture has had its day in the cultural limelight recently, with Miuccia Prada working her magic touch on the costumes for The Great Gatsby, and with that in turn, inspiring a roaringly good twenties fashion revival. What lies ahead in fashion looks to the past with a confection of classic colours and retro pastiche to choose from. Let the good times roll!
