More movie inspiration came in the form of Rooney Mara's turn as Lisbeth in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo with luxe leather featuring on the catwalk. Kirrily Johnston rocked the look in tough, bold ensembles.

Zimmerman presented beautifully pretty pieces in pastel and floral prints featuring lots of lace and sheer textures. Feminine and delicate, get the look yourself with floral pastel printed pants, frills and sheer blouses.

Lace, one of the chicest trends of the moment, was celebrated in Jayson Brunsdon's haunting and dramatic collection. To get the look yourself opt for lace dresses or blouses in pale shades like cream and white.
