Haute Harlequin: how to embrace statement hues and oversized jewels this autumn

Bring high fashion theatre into the new season

With statement hues and oversized jewels, there is a sense of play in the air this autumn. Brought to life by photographer David Vail and Brazilian model Lara, our Haute Harlequin shoot mixes cosy checks with a splash of citrus orange, while turning heads in head-to-toe green.

Dazzling trousers add an unexpected twist to formal wear, while every dress becomes a highlight with the biggest bow you can muster. Liberally sprinkle sequins and ruffles, and add a dash of the theatrical to everyday living.

Scroll down or through the gallery above to see the full shoot.
