Return of the Cloche

Over the last few seasons it's been clear fashion designers have been feeling a little nostalgic with many collections showing a distinct influence from styles and cuts from previous decades.  Louis Vuitton's Autumn Winter 2012 collection includes oversized garments, giant cloche hats, heavily embellished coats and garments in deep shades with pops of colours such as yellow, purple and red.  LV's ad campaign and catwalk show earlier this year featured a custom made steamtrain and models each with their own porters carrying Louis Vuitton luggage.  At Alfies the golden age of travel and the glittering glamour of the 1920s and 30s is always a favourite.  Here are our top picks for recreating this striking Autumnal look:
