The Ultimate Fashion Weekender, Cabot Circus, Bristol - Day 2

Style :

Although a slightly chilly afternoon at Cabot Circus in Bristol, however the House of Frazer show drew in crowds to veiw their Autumn/Winter 2010 collection from a host of designers from around the store.

A decidedly British Herriage theme was presented in the guise of camel capes, a pallet and an item bang-on trend for the season, and was shown alongside checked tweed in brown hues and grape accessories. The Prince of Wales check has made a return this season to coincide with the tailoring trend, for both men and women. Worn with tan or mid-tone brown brogues and teamed with roll up chinos for a more masculine look, as seen as Marni and Salvatore Ferragammo in Milan. 

The Artisan look is a soft play on the formal look of Paris, associated more with Chanel than the edgy back streets of Monmatre. Flocking in an array of autumn tones on heavy outerwear, soft chiffon in mid-tones for a feminin appeal can make a smart impression softer.

However, draped ribbed, wool cardigans teamed with high waited skirts that were strongly sectioned in the middle with a chuky leather belt gives the Twilight look a moody yet powerful edge. Abstract prints, remenicent of modern French artists worn under a camel trench coat encapsulates a number of trends seen in London and Milan, most notebly at Gucci and Burberry. Bold lace detail, velvet and feathering suggest a strong, emotive look. Panneling in metalic colours, or in monotone black and grey are a winning trend for this and next season, as seen in London and Milan.

The ever strong militarty look is a main theme at House of Frazer, with brands such as Armani, Ralph Lauren and Phase Eight taking embleishment with metalics, cable knits for guys and camle military coats for women are strong pieces for the season. Metalic wide knit bell tops and crochet t-shirts, as seen at Burberry, give texture and depth into a wide ranging look.
