Salvatore Ferragamo’s Fall 2011 collection was inspired by the 80s power dressing woman.

We saw sexy pinstripe double-breasted suits, masculine cut jacket with pointed lapels, body hugging pencil skirts, tailored pants and belted dresses in gingham, check, stripes and houndstooth. They dominated the runway on a grey, white and mostly black colour palette.

The body conscious collection was so beautifully chic.

Apart from the suits we also saw some beautiful winter white coats and black leather trenches.

At night the power woman changes into a dress with a plunging neckline accented with Swarovski mesh and lace detailing or sumptuous bustier dress with embroidered patchwork details.

Key accessories included top-cap pumps, gingham, houndstooth, striped and tweed pumps plus clutches and shoulder bags.

Favourites: Leather trench with gingham lining and houndtooth top with white pants and white coat
