1. Barbara Casasola was celebrating the women of her Brazilian homeland with shoulder-baring fit-and-flare dresses, pleated silk slips and crop tops. To balance all the femininity there was a brilliant loose-fitting white pinstripe suit that we can definitely see in our wardrobes come spring.

2. A little bit Boy Scout, with a sprinkle of Saturday Night Fever, we loved Thomas Tait's swinging flares and floppy tunics. If that was all a bit too billowy for you, he also did a great structured leather jacket.

3. Peter Jensen transformed models into sweet and flirty schoolgirls, dressed with dotted lace shifts, skirts with circle-cut pockets and his signature Peter Pan collars.

4.  Rejina Pyo took a more fluid approach to her designs this season, with a flowing silk coat, asymmetrical slip dress and tulle layering. Her use of colour was as brilliant as it always is.

5. The badminton nets and school hall chairs nodded to a retro sports mood at Peter Pilotto. Smocking and lace sat alongside go-faster trimmings and utility pockets on skirts and jackets. There was more yellow (which is shaping up to be the colour of the season, FYI) and a stellar front row to boot.

6, 7 & 8: It's official: the shoulder is SS16's erogenous zone. We've seen them take centre stage with off-the-shoulder tops and dresses, peeping out of cut-out shirts and revealed through sheer patches. Start working on those arms now.

9. We had an inkling, but Joseph was the show that cemented knotting as a trend, as seen on strapless dresses, shirts, wrap-around skirts and loose-fitting trousers. All in its signature neutral colour palette, with splashes of chartreuse and navy stripes. Styling tip: get ahead on the trend now and wear your shirt backwards, knotted at the small of your back (it's a thing, trust us).

10. Belstaff brings a new era of biker jacket to SS16, by way of iridescent leather. Forget unicorns, mermaids are the mythical creature du jour!
