That's right, it's everywhere. And nowhere used to greater effect than at the Nicole Farhi show.
Black and burgundy pony skin jackets and coats, used as panels down sheath dresses - looking wonderfully rich it ticks off the need for tactile fabrics that will be rife come next season.
It was a limited palette of navy, burgundy, cream and red. Detail came from jewels tightly encrusted along the arms of dresses and exposed zips. A strong collection that enticed the first sighting of Anna Wintour at LFW.
