The most covetable and sought after accessories this season are disguised as totally normal household objects. See Anya Hindmarch’s cereal box bags. Kate Spade and Moschino also played with the theme.

Probably the most effective way to stay warm will be the new range of throws, capes and shawls. Burberry draped richly printed cashmere scarves over their famous trenches.

Perfectly boring: there’s no getting away with fascination with the mundane this season. The Chanel supermarket was an ideal background for this perfectly normal look.

12| Every Thing Grey

15| Sporty Luxe

This trend is still thriving, fitting perfectly into our lifestyle. Christian Dior and Chanel did Haute Trainers while Tom Ford had football jerseys emerging as fully sequined mini dresses.

16| Bauhaus

Tod’s, Lanvin and Prada all borrowed from the Bauhaus period. The look is hard, romantic and androgynous. Key pieces were the double-breasted maxi coat and heavy duty shoes.

17| The Statement Coat

If there’s one statement investment piece it’s the super coat. Get inspiration from Phillip Lim’s patchwork number or Rodarte’s glitter bomber to the more sedate Burberry water colour dream coat.
