We're only a few days into New York Fashion Week, and already obvious trends are emerging. Most of these surround colour, which is no surprise considering trend predictors have been tipping folk off for months about what hues will be making waves in the future.

In New York, everything is (in the words of Betty Rizzo) "peachy keen, jellybean". At almost every show so far, we've seen shades of peach or soft coral in every fabric from suede to chiffon...

Marc Jacobs has chosen to use this shade in criss-cross maxi dresses dressed up with statement belts and accessories in black. Chris Benz sent and oversize tee slouched over frilled skirts, while Isaac Mizrahi used shades of coral, pink and orange in a spotty print on a suit and long Summer dress.

Peter Som's belted, buttery soft suit was finished with glam Bruno Frissoni sandals, while Thakoon's intricately pleated grecian gown called for no accessories whatsoever. Finally, Jill Stuart went for the most romantic use of the colour, with watercolour peaches on a diaphanous chiffon fairy dress.
