We’ve identified 6 key trends from this season's collections, and the brands that are doing it best:

1. Turtlenecks 2.0

Turtlenecks are still going strong this season, although they’ve been refreshed with bold colours and patterns. Erdem and Tod’s opted for unique autumnal shades for their knitted turtleneck jumpers and Etro did the same, as well as incorporating apres-ski print details. Dolce & Gabbana created a turtleneck balaclava hybrid piece in a loud black and white print, while JW Anderson showed a creative, colourful, chunky, cutout turtleneck jumper.

2. Thoughtful Layering

An extension of the turtleneck trend, we’re seeing more visible layering around the neck. Different combinations of turtlenecks, shirts, zip necks, jacket and coats were explored at Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Alyx, Etro and Vetements, and pieces were purposefully layered to create depth around the collar and draw the eye up.


3. Leather Coats

Autumn and winter are the ideal time to wear leather, and this season explored the leather coat in different colours and finishes. With Veri Peri being the Pantone colour of the year, and both Fendi and Etro did their take on the purple shade with plum leather coats. Prada went for a red belted version, and Dolce & Gabbana also opted for the cinched silhouette but in a Matrix-esque patent black.

4. Untraditional Shearling

Alyx, Etro, Fendi and JW Anderson all turned to another classic fabric for colder months, shearling. JW Anderson’s variety resembled a dress, with its A-line cut and wrap style, whereas Fendi’s was more like a lamb, with white shearling all-over. Alyx and Etro went for warm shades of red and orange with defined shearling piping details on the arms and body of the coat.

5. Oversized Tailoring

The baggy everything look is still going strong. The Gvasalia's have always designed clothing with an intentional, and sometimes comically, oversized fit—this season's Vetements is no different, with hoodies, blazers and wide leg trousers in full force. Zegna, Prada, Alyx and Dolce & Gabbana also went down the same route with this casual style, albeit maintaining sharp tailoring to ensure the proportions still looked, well, proportional.

6. Wide Lapels

Continuing the supersized trend, lapels also got wider to compensate for the increased volume. A bigger lapel adds a retro yet modern aspect to a piece—Erdem and Vetements did exactly that with neutral wool jackets and coats, while Dolce & Gabbana and Moschino took unconventional liberties with this detail. Dolce & Gabbana showed a variety of pointy lapels on sequinned jackets and leather coats while Moschino exaggerated the lapels with a candy-coloured scheme.
