After the cartoon sluts, it was cashmere underwear all the way

On the last day of London Fashion Week Scott Henshall produced a collection inspired by "Miss Marvel" and the high- colour superheroes of a cartoon page – by way of a few streetwalkers, that is. Primary coloured cartoon prints covered short flirty skirts, a bumster halter-neck all in one, and little knickers worn with thigh-high hooker boots.

The voiceover on the soundtrack asked, "Do I look like a slut in this?" The answer could only have been yes!

Big Brother's Alex in a pair of cashmere underpants followed a black leather mini bustier dress and a pair of black leather trousers with zips that raced up the legs.

From then on it was cashmere underwear all the way, on a Page 3 girl and the fabulous nobodies of the London club scene, with just a few cashmere sweaters embellished with trompe l'oeil muscles and a beaded "?". My thoughts exactly.

Another label showing yesterday famous for its cashmere was Fake London, designed by Desiree Mejer. It was a disappointing show with a distinctive lack of the cashmere sweaters decorated with patriotic English emblems whose admirers include Kate Moss and Robbie Williams.

Instead Mejer sent out the her usual Union Flag appliquéd skirts and anoraks, trousers that were part-harem pant, part-army pant, and part chaps, all worn with denim Stetson hats straight from a hen night in Ibiza. Mejer needs to find a new direction for the brand.
