This season we welcome the return of our old friend the zipper. We're big fans of this humble fastening and have been fascinated to see how various designers have worked it into their AW14 looks.
Stella McCartney has focused on form rather than function, using zip line as decoration to embellish all kinds of pieces including oversized jackets, sweaters and bags. We love this collection, which really appeals to our affinity for transforming the everyday into something altogether more beautiful.
We also love the oversized, snakeskin-trimmed zipper detail on this Christopher Kane sweater and the fact that it works, too, so you can choose to wear it in relaxed or revealing mode depending on your mood.
