Cruise presented fashionable daywear from designers such as Diane Von Furstenberg, Victoria Beckham and Vivienne Westwood.


A highlight for the womenswear were the Victoria Beckham ‘Techno’ (£625) round neck A-line dress in acidic orange, an Alexander McQueen ‘Feather Circle’ scarf (£360), and the DVF ‘Lorraine’ Printed bodycon dress (£356) in a geometric monochrome print with cobalt blue panels.


As for the men, Vivienne Westwood reigned supreme on the runway, with her Anglomania Lee Denim range playing a main part. Her classic slim fit jeans; embroidered with the signature orb on the rear pockets in gold (£150) were teamed with her new dark blue shirt with a lighter blue floral print (£275) and a simple desert boot. This a summer classic if ever there ever was one.


Closing the show, Cruise sent out Westwood’s ‘Prince of Wales’ check two piece suit (£610), with her simple regular fitted white shirt with signature brown buttons underneath (£170), completed with a casual brown shoe. This outfit is perfect for a summer gathering.
