After a season experimenting with bold rainbow shades lip colour returns to its primary roots this winter with slashes of scarlet making an appearance at shows such as Giles, Gucci and Diane von Furstenberg. ‘We’re doing a strict Victorian governess look so it’s about a precise, defined shape and a flash of the reddest red’ said Lucia Pieroni at Giles.
