Trending from the autumn/winter ’16 catwalks to appearances in must-see shows such as ‘The Crown’, take in this season’s most sumptuous and regal fabric of choice through our top picks below…
Aquazurra Velvet Boots
Following in the footsteps of Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Kendall Jenner, Sybarites should try on these thigh-high velvet beauties for size. Straight off the Aquazurra Autumn/Winter ’16 catwalk, the crimson design is crafted entirely from soft stretch-velvet for a truly luxe look. Use them to add a sharp burst of colour to a chic monochrome look.

Alberta Ferretti Robe Jacket
Crafted from the softest velvet, this terracotta pink Alberta Ferretti velvet robe jacket will instantly make you feel like royalty. Detailings include with long sleeves, two front external pockets, yellow contrasting piping and classic lapels.
Dolce & Gabbana Vanity Bag
This gorgeous bag takes its design cues from the glamorous styles of days gone by. The structured shape is covered in sumptuous velvet, and decorated with gleaming gold-tone hardware. Carry it against sleek monochrome looks come evening.
Alexander McQueen Velvet Slippers
For the every-day, you can rely on Alexander McQueen. These velvet slippers are embellished with crystal star, moon and butterfly motifs, inspired by the AW ’16 collection’s ‘Obsession’ theme – the idea of collecting trinkets and charms in a dreamlike state. Masterfully made in Italy, this pair is pristinely finished with grosgrain piping and a quilted satin insole.
