Warehouse turns back time; fashion Warehouse has drawn inspiration from the past for its autumn/winter collection.

Byline: Laura Davis reports

IF AUGUST is for worrying about the weather then September is for window shopping.

The autumn/winter collections are starting to make an appearance, ready to breathe some life back into our wardrobes.

Warehouse has taken a look back in time for this season's influences, all the way back to Edwardian times with its Architecture theme featuring leather, lace and ruffles.

The 1920s inspire its Deco collection, with shawl collars, large bow details and one shoulder dresses, all featuring heavy pleating, waterfall ruffles and elaborate fluted sleeves.

The High Society look fast forwards three decades with its 1950s palette of blush pink, raspberry and camel bringing vintage rose prints, winter florals and painterly brush strokes onto day dresses and skirts.

Other influences include 1970s rock stars, bohemian details and Studio 54.
