In one fell swoop decades of tradition were swept away by MCC yesterday. The annual match against the champion county, the regular curtain raiser to the English season, will take place as usual but it will be played at the Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi instead of Lord's, and it will be played with a pink ball under floodlights rather than with a red ball on a freezing cold day.

Time was when shopping for a coat – newly, and in this case appropriately, re-branded outerwear – was simple. One waterproof. One wool and tailored.

If the London collections were, for the most part, characterised by their diversity, at least one thing rang out loud and clear. Pink looks set to become the colour of the spring/summer 2008 season. Shades of Groundhog Day? It is true that pink is the colour of pretty much any spring/summer catwalk season one might care to mention, as much a part of the balmy, blue-skied picture as white must always be. Pink is more interesting, however, as it allows designers to play with feminine stereotypes and to twist them in ever more interesting a way.
