Editor's Pick - Five AW09 key trends

The sun is still shining, the trees haven’t lost their leaves, and yet it’s time to start planning our Autumn /Winter 09 wardrobe. Who can wait when a new season looms?!

The AW09 catwalks displayed two very opposite moods; autumnal browns and gothic blacks and bright 1980s block colours. Marc Jacobs had the ultimate flashback, with a fluoro palette, also seen in Tod’s and Michael Kors clutches. Meanwhile, camel belted coats, both in soft brown and butter colours, were central pieces at Dries Van Noten, DKNY and Tommy Hilfiger.

But the statement jacket, with its strong characterful shoulders, will undoubtedly be the signature look of the end of the Naughties. Balmain experimented with horn-inspired shapes, while Dolce & Gabbana went for softer, round articulations.

We've invited daily eco glossy to pick their five favourite items from the DeviDoll Sale which nod to AW09 trends and which will definitely translate well for the next season. It’s investment shopping at its best, as all items in the selection are classical enough to outlast a single trend and season, and a great price. You will look fabulous, and fashion-forward!
