Fashion loves a wild streak and this season took it quite literally. Givenchy featured panther print bombers, while Ungaro focused on wolves and birds of prey.

To add to the fierce factor, both collections eagerly picked up on the fetish trend too. Acres of black leather, lace and satin strutted down the catwalks.

A high tight ponytail goes hand in hand with this tantalising trend. Red talons could be considered a step too far, but as Emanuel Ungaro once said: "I dress mistresses, not wives."

For winter, this body-con mini works best with high shine opaques. They'll keep your pins warm, long and lean as can be.

If head-to-toe black is overly goth for you, peacock blue satin heels were also shown which will add the perfect flash of colour to an otherwise darkly mischievous look.
