What I loved at the Dover Street Market AW09 press day

Comme’s surrealist military coats (above)

Junya Watanabe’s polished pointed girls’ Oxfords

Lanvin’s mens wool poloshirts with grosgrain collar

Sacai’s girls’ underwear and mens utilitarian nylon and knitwear combos

Undercover’s punk graphic tees

Lanvin’s Little Black Velvet Dress – long sleeved with a wee train – heavenly!

Joe Casely Hayford’s silk scarves

H by Harris’ quilted suede laptop case

Dashing Tweeds’ reflective capes

I didn’t dare take pictures having been told off for using a pen to write notes. “Sorry you can’t take notes,” “But I’m press,” “Ok, but you can’t use a pen, you’ll have to use a pencil,” “Why?” “For health and safety reasons.” Jeez!
