Minimalism and Narciso Rodriquez are synonymous however his Fall Winter collection gave new rigour to the term 'minimal'. Straight cuts and elongated lines elevated simplicity to a new plane on which the models (wearing platforms) were Amazonian and the clothes went on forever. The trick with Rodriguez is to look beyond the minimalism and at the detail in the clothing which is always subtle; a leather lapel, delicate embroidery and tweedy panels added pops of detail.

On the rare occasion where the Rodriguez departs from a monochrome palette, colour is always interesting. Peach trousers were teamed with a pale tangerine coat. A mint waistcoat, cut to the hip, was a dream for workwear savvy watchers. The formula at Rodriguez has always worked; simple yet sharp clothes, minimal yet flattering. It worked again here.
