In recent seasons Alberta Ferretti's reputation as the Queen of chiffon evening dresses has slipped. The designer still does exquisite eveningwear but now she does a whole lot more.

The current dark romance that is defining the emerging season was prevalent at her show today in Milan. Sheer black chiffon, encrusted with delicate beadwork and flapper-esque fringing, leather pencil skirts and a standout black velvet and leather paneled dress looked tough and chic at the same time - not an easy feat.

Flashes of colour came from crimson, Yves Klein blue and purple (which was London's favourite shade) while great cocoon jackets, pinstriped coats and cloudy knits will make brilliant day purchases this autumn.
