These are clothes that need to be layered: gold-wrought skirts worn over cobalt blue trousers, delicately knitted jumpers over paisley tunics. And you might want to mix in pieces from other designers - perhaps the odd printed mesh top from Jean-Paul Gaultier, another determined fashion traveller. Of course, for the price of several layers, you could always buy a round-the-world plane ticket and put the look together yourself from the markets and bazaars of North Africa and the Orient
