LONDON, United Kingdom - London Fashion Week wrapped up on Tuesday after five days mixing A-listers like Burberry Prorsum and Vivienne Westwood with up-and-coming designers like Simone Rocha.

One of the highlights was the catwalk debut of Hunter Wellington boots -- although the show was about far more than wellies, with outerwear in an explosion of colours in a collection overseen by Stella McCartney's husband Alasdhair Willis.

Here are seven key trends that emerged from the London catwalks:

- Fur, real and artificial. There was black and white mink at Tom Ford and artificial fur gilets and a patchwork coat at Topshop. Paul Smith dyed his blue with a thick red stripe in the middle, while A-list British star Christopher Kane matched his with a black leather mini-dress and the evergreen Vivienne Westwood added fur edges to hotpants.

- Pleats. They may remind you of school uniforms but pleats are here to stay. And why not, when they are on sweeping gowns in Greek-born Mary Katrantzou's collection, make colourful details on Richard Nicoll skirts and spice up dark grey coats at Todd Lynn?

- Cool blue. Roksanda Ilincic, born in Serbia but a long-time London resident, used it for calf-length skirts and dresses and an overcoat with a gold belt, Temperley London layered up blue prints, while it also made an appearance at Topshop Unique and Richard Nicholl.

- Boots. They are your friends this coming autumn/winter whether they are Hunter wellies, grey, brown or black over-the-knee suede at Topshop Unique, black leather at Preen, or laced up to the thigh at Antonio Berardi.

- Bare legs. Hunter, Topshop and Roksanda Ilincic are among those determined to continue baring it this winter. Which makes the above - good boots - even more important.

- Black. Arguably black is always in, but there was a lot of it about this week, from John Rocha's spectacular ruffles and lace creations, to Erdem's intricate numbers and Tom Ford's luscious velvets, wools and cashmeres.

- Bags. Mulberry presented its latest model-inspired bag, the Cara Delevingne, created with Delevingne's close involvement. The troubled brand hopes it will help revive its financial fortunes. Burberry also unveiled The Bloomsbury, a medium-sized hand-held bag decorated with one of 40 hand-painted artworks.
