This season saw the introduction of a new material to clothing and accessories - Perspex.

The shiny, see-through medium took shape in trench coats and caplets at Burberry, in the chunky heels of shoes at Stella McCartney and in boxy clutches at Valentino and Chanel.

Perspex excels in its durability (as opposed to easily scratched calf leather) and its ability to lend your look an instant modern feel, transitioning an ordinary ensemble into a futuristic, architectural aesthetic.
