Eastern influences were all over the A/W catwalks. Designers including Suno and Issa kept their pieces traditional with length and looser fits, whilst others such as Marni and Osman bought a modern twist to the trend and took a more experimental approach to shape. One thing that has to be perfect to get the Oriental trend right is of course print. Think: Mirrored florals and Chinese dragons on silk backgrounds with metallic touches. Patterns tended to be kept very feminine whilst any masculinity was added through structured shapes on the catwalks. In terms of colour opulence is key, with gold and burnt orange playing a huge role in the trend.
Here are my favourite takes on the modern oriental trend:
