While spring runways were dominated by a collection of vibrant hues, there was one glaring exception to this general rule. While black and white both had noticeable places in designers' collections, brown, of all colours, was seen with the same frequency as the others. An unusual choice for spring - which is typically dominated by pastels - brown not only was present, but was often featured head-to-toe. My favourite use of brown was definitely in Alberta Ferretti's show, where it took on an almost coral tinge and perfectly complimented her gorgeous early-nineteenth-century style gowns.
