In a nutshell: 'There are two things Raf Simons always nails: outwear and knitwear. The outerwear looked hardy enough to weather any storm - or, better still, an apocalypse.' - Phoebe Arnold, ELLE Fashion Director.

Five things to know:

1) Popcorn is trending - on floors, as invites, as handbags. The entire venue was carpeted with a thick layer of popcorn. Next time you're at the cinema, cart the bucket home, as apparently it's quite chic.

2) Raf's dystopian vision was an unpicking of a cultural hierarchy, mixing high-brow and low-brow references. Meaning, yes, you can binge-watch the Kardashians, and your thoughts on Foucault are still valid. You can also wear a balaclava and look classy.

3) Cartoons are cool. Just look at the Looney Tunes knitwear, featuring Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner.

4) Raf has you covered in the event of an apocalypse or alien invasion, with hi-vis jackets and tin-foil hats.

5) Everyone wants to wear Calvin Klein 205W39NYC - including half of Hollywood. Those sat in the front row: Nicole Kidman, Lupita Nyong'o, Isabelle Huppert, Millie Bobby Brown, A$AP Rocky, Kelela, Cindy Crawford, Rowan Blanchard, Karlie Kloss, and the list goes on and on and on. Oh, and ELLE UK's March cover star, Margot Robbie.
