Longchamp brought Parisian style to the streets of New York, with an effortless collection that channeled the French capital's famous style. Unexpected combinations and lashings of fringing showed us all why French women always look so chic.

There was no shortage of standout colour at Dion Lee, and we love this shout-it-from-the-rooftops orange. A relaxed fit with intriguing cut-outs around the hips makes this a curious but striking mix of modest and not.

In typical form, Self Portrait played with shape and silhouette. Beautifully cut, with ruffles and panels to hug or hide the body, this white dress that spilled off the shoulder was a delight.

Celebrating his 50th Anniversary, Ralph Lauren allowed himself space to play, and as the collection bounced from streetwear to patchwork, the standout moments were velvet gowns, so exquisitely shaped they moved like molten mercury.

Like something for a modern-day Audrey Hepburn, this belted suit and neck scarf from Kate Spade was the epitome of elegant.

The best moment at Christian Cowan was undoubtedly this two-piece ensemble seemingly crafted out of an enormous hat.
