This season, there was a distinct wave of nostalgia across many of the collections, perhaps offered as an antidote to current unstable political climates, or perhaps just a harking back to a simpler time.

Miuccia Prada achieved the impossible by making knitwear sexy in a collection full of texture with bejeweled cardigans, corduroy suits and belted coats, all in a '70s-inspired colour palette. Clearly she believes in the substance of style.

Kent & Curwen, the label partly owned by David Beckham, showcased old-school bomber jackets and rugby shirts emblazoned with crests and logos in an ostensible homage to British youth culture that Beckham himself declared as "multi-generational."


Take your cues from Maisie and use subtle embroidery and beading detail on shirt collars and cuffs to elevate your daily style.
