So what's new this season? Padding, protective lines and cosy knits came together on the catwalks, perhaps as a shelter from the doom and gloom of a world in crisis. But if trends are truly heading for more and more comfort, fashion is retaining its sense of fun, its color and glamour, always with an edge of determination and self-assuredness. In short, this season it's all about celebrating the individuality of style with a multitude of trends just waiting to be worn.
Kate Middleton wore a pair of Penelope Chilvers boots that she's owned for over 10 years to hike up to Paro Taktsang, the Tiger's Nest monastery, during a week-long tour of India and Bhutan. The rest of her outfit included a pair of jeans, a deep green vest from Really Wild, and a Jaeger linen blouse.
