If you are one of the dying breed whose wardrobe does not contain at least one animal-print item, you could soon have a case for recognition as a minority group. We're not sure when it happened, but suddenly the world is in animal print, with celebs leading the pack: stars from La Moss to Jasmine Guinness via Lily Allen have been spotted in near-identical leopard-print coats, suggesting that this is one spring trend that is going to stick.

Eclectic dreams: From the exotic to the bucolic, London's designers forecast a brighter, prettier spring
Monday 22 September 2008
It should come as no great surprise that, just as a look that Vogue recently described as "the new austere" finally arrives in store, an entirely new mood emerges. And so, for spring/summer 2009, all that is strict, dark and distressed looks set to be supplanted by clothing that is just the reverse: exotic in places, bucolic in others, and owing more than a little to haute couture, if with a touch of utilitarian grounding, vintage Helmut Lang-style, to toughen things up a little.

A long-held bugbear of mine has been why London Fashion Week has been so fixated on womenswear. Over the past six seasons, however, a showcase called MAN has taken its place among the 60-odd other shows at London Fashion Week, aiming to raise support and recognition for the city's menswear designers. And such momentum has built up around it that, this season, off-schedule menswear events coordinated to take advantage of the attention. From nowhere, London Fashion Week suddenly gained an unofficial day of menswear.

It should perhaps come as no great surprise that by the time London Fashion Week drew to a close yesterday the bucolic view of femininity which characterises the current spring season had given way to a rather darker mood for the forthcoming autumn.
