The soft blushes of spring and vibrant colour clashes of summer have given way to the rich, earthy tones of autumn.

And this season designers have taken inspiration from the fruit drink that used to stain our lips as children.

Blackcurrant can be seen everywhere from make-up to accessories and has ripened into a trend that adds a touch of drama, and a taste of that childhood joy, to any look.
