The contouring leather pencil skirts buttoned up on the side from Saint Laurent are inspired in the mood of the '40s. Stella McCartney chooses the plaid effect for her tunic dresses with a belt at the waist. A classic tartan on a red background is the pattern that Balmain has chosen for his long blazers that almost become mini-dresses. The very high-waisted skirts from Miu Miu feature an asymmetric cut and almost reach the ankles. Vivienne Westwood renews the palette of classic colours and combines teal green and burgundy or blueish and beige in her chequered jackets.
