The bodycon backlash and Macron minis: 9 style lessons from Paris fashion week –

Sarah Burton’s melded lustrous, delicate looking brocades with gabardine to make a dress-coat hybrid you would want to wear everywhere, for ever. (There was also a leather version, embroidered with birds and immensely beautiful, although you’d probably have to pawn your children).
