Trend Alert: Orient Express

All aboard the Orient Express for A/W 12 - fashion takes on the East this season in an opulent display of wealth. 

Traditional Oriental motifs and plenty of embellishment take centre stage across opalescent fabrics, jacquards, velvet and silks in regal purple, gold, bronze, lacquered black, red and green.

This trend started on the catwalks at Proenza Schouler, with a sporty take on the trend. Kimono detailing and embroidered gold satin bomber jackets were the star pieces here but the great British High Street have done a great interpretation, from Chinese medallion print trouser suits at Topshop to Obi belts at ASOS.

Round off your look with embellished bags with tassel details and delicate filigree jewellery from Accessorize who've nailed the look.
