With wet, undone hair and loads of eyeliner, it could be expected that the inspiration would be grit and grunge for the Mulberry Spring 2014 beauty look. Instead, lead hairstylist Sam McKnight opted to point to lived-in and slept-in as his main adjectives for the hair and makeup, which looked gorgeous paired with the floral, feminine collection. Totally tousled strands were swept across models' faces in a deep side part after being doused in Frederic Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturising Spray for body. As for the makeup, the emphasis was on eyeliner. Inky black framed models' eyes in a Twiggy-esque fashion, while face and lips were kept neutral.
The Spring 2014 runway show for Mulberry marked the last for creative director Emma Hill, who presented her final collection after six years helming the brand. And, with it, she pulled out all the stops. First, there was Cara Delevingne kicking off the show (with her first London Fashion Week walk of the season), and then there was Turbo, the label's British bulldog, wearing a floral overcoat. And, of course, there were the many contenders for It Bag status, namely the reversible clutches, that have made Mulberry a household name in the U.K. (If you haven't envied the Bayswater or the Alexa, the handbag named for Alexa Chung, you better do a Google Images search, stat.) We already miss Hill's quirky-cool aesthetic — this time with loose-fitting '60s-style shift dresses in fun textured florals — and wish her well on her next adventure.

If the cool weather is stealing your sartorial mojo, you're in for a treat! We've gone back through our runway archives and have pulled the most inspiring exits from the Autumn/Winter 2013 fashion week circuit. Alexander Wang gave us a lesson in textural contrast, Givenchy gave us permission to get cute with kitschy-cute tees, Phillip Lim suggested some grungy styling tips and Peter Pilotto showed us how to wow with print. From the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris — there is a wealth of Winter wardrobe ideas inside. Winter, we're comin' atcha!
We may have only just begun to dip our toes into local Summer campaigns, but the international round of Autumn Winter campaigns have already revealed a glimpse into the season beyond. Whether they're the theatrical scenes from Dolce & Gabbana, whose brooding and distressed models are clad in decadently embellished crowns and gowns, or the bombastic and graphic images from Tom Ford's pumped up Fall line, there's an overwhelming feeling that A/W '13 will reinvent the word excitement. Even the quieter images capture a sense of intrigue — like Cara Delevingne's curious campaign for Mulberry (her co-star is an owl) and her appearance in Saint Laurent's campaign, where her seaward gaze can only be described as wistful. A look at all the campaigns, here in the gallery.
Thank heavens for the international Autumn/Winter round of ad campaigns giving us a glimpse into next season.

To be completely honest, I’m not the neatest or most organised person, and this extends to my wardrobe. But over the past few years, after working with and learning from some very fashion-savvy colleagues, I’ve put more effort into making sure my wardrobe is stocked with clothes that reflect my style while also being practical — I’ve done more than three years of 7 a.m. office starts and know the importance of making sure every article of clothing is in its place for easy dressing!
Thanks to the girls I’ve picked up lots of handy storage tips, like making sure clothes hangers are uniform to maximise cupboard space, and allowing pretty accessories such as my PANDORA charm bracelet to shine as a bedside table adornment. It’s still a work in progress, but I’m improving . . . Take a tour of my wardrobe to see!
