This was a chic and grown-up Topshop Unique collection — spiked with just enough tawdry touches to keep things interesting.
As in many London collections, statement coats were the linchpins of most exits. Fur collars and revers in contrasting colors added a luxurious touch to military blousons, woolen trenches and leather toppers. Shearling and ponyskin were carved into roomy reefers and mannish great coats.
Underneath came racier fare: leggings that were a tad too sheer, leather miniskirts and animal-print sweaters.
These could be buy-now, wear-now clothes, for they closely echoed what Karlie Kloss, Lara Stone and other leggy ladies were wearing in the front row.
