Issey Miyake

For Autumn/Winter 18/19, the house showcased a select array of simplistic looks punctuated by joyful colour; postbox red, electric blue, acid yellow and olive green. The twist was a range of truly modern styling takes to add a contemporary, elegant spin on classic shapes, for example a collarless chunky striped suit; oversized and cropped, worn over colour popping knitwear.

Rick Owens

The chief of eccentric and irreverent design and always a PFWM favourite, Rick Owens presented nothing short of fashion mastery this season. Highlights included a futuristic silver-grey soldierly boiler suit, an asymmetric brown wool kilt-meets toga ensemble, and several chilling looks worn by models painted entirely ghost-white with almost clean shaven heads, if it weren't for the odd, highly styled tufts of hair left decorating the forehead.

Yohji Yamamoto

Soft-meets-structural draping and OTT layering underlined a collection full of Yamamoto signatures, like wide brimmed hats, chunky waist belts and of course, plenty of all back everything. The highlight was a deconstructed patchwork jumper dress paired effortlessly with skinny jeans and chelsea boots.
