Harvey Nichols Autumn/Winter (A/W'11) Catwalk Show

It's that time of year again. Just as London Fashion Week kicks off, Manchester punches first. Harvey Nichols hosted its biannual fashion catwalk show to launch the upcoming commercial season. This time the shindig was held at the Victorian-Gothic Manchester City Hall at Albert's Square. 


The cars? Oh yeah. Landrover sponsored the do.

The building, eliminated in pink, looked fabulous, as did the event attendees who flocked for not one but TWO shows this year as past shows have always been sold-out and full to capacity. Let the fashion commence. Whilst the ladies wear offer was amazing I was (as usual) very interested in the menswear! The Harvey Nichols styling team did a fantastic job and the attention to detail was inspired, (I know I always say that, but it is true).

Pictures? First off, 'Canadian Commando' - a take on last year's Scandinavian obsession. Layer last year's Reindeer knits with this year's lumberjack shirts.


The models get ready....

'Football Fashion'.... I wasn't so convinced (not least because I don't remember seeing football players in boxing gloves). HOWEVER, if we're allowed to wear boxing gloves with vests now, I am totally willing to give it a try.

Can't do hats. Can do leather, 'Dark Twisted Fantasy' is a reincarnation of last year's Rock look. Save the glitter Tees and add a new leather number (as a treat)
