The Italians gave us a really cohesive fashion week, working as a team, giving strong and wearable direction in nearly every menswear area. TheChicGeek scrapbooks his big trends for the forthcoming AW 12 season.

Retro Patterns - Jonathan Saunders showed his first full collection of menswear with some great Prada-esque retro patterns and Prada just carried on doing what they do best.

The High Break - One part Victorian, one part Sixties, the suit has gained buttons and become a little more done up.
Clockwise - Jonathan Saunders, Burberry Prorsum, Alexander McQueen, Prada
Croc - This really separates the men from the boys. Big money skins polished to perfection. Remortgage now.
