Lesson One: Wearing a bulky coat with a mini skirt will ensure you keep a length-to-width balance but may result in freezing legs.
Two: Layering cardigans with button up shirts done right up to the very top looks very quite preppy-chic.
Three: Autumnal shades of plaid or houndstooth pants are so versatile for print mixing-and-matching.
Four: Always (I mean ALWAYS) carry a hits-perfectly-at-my-upper-thigh sling bag.
There was the conical and the comical. The former referring to the shape of the bustiers and the latter ... well plain hilarious prints. One can always expect Mr Scott's capability for transferring you to the weird side of fashion but when you thought it couldn't get any stranger, in walks giant fur go-go boots (why the hell not?). These looks definitely fall under the love it or loathe it category. I for one, found it extremely refreshing and a bit of a laugh (although those sweater pieces are definitely wearable). Expect that scary jumper to pop up on the streets somewhere along the road (just like the Bart Simpson) ...
Oscar De La Renta
Definitely a nod towards the Galliano theatricality back when he was creative director of Dior (how I miss those days). There was belted drama with coat-cross-dresses being cinched in at the waist and a gothic Little Red Riding Hood moment. Any De La Renta collection isn't complete without supple feather and satin garments in vibrant shades of turquoise, royal blue and ruby. Lastly, how about that striking embellished Magenta gown?
