When you think of food, fashion isn't one of the first things that springs to mind. Despite that, the stylistic nature of food has been a source of inspiration for legendary looks across the globe for as long as we can remember.

To celebrate the launch of their biggest food transformation in 22 years, Caffè Nero are making sure this year is no different, teaming with leading fashion and celebrity stylist Gayle Rinkoff, to create a series of food-inspired looks ahead of London Fashion Week.

With an exciting new artisanal food menu that will set the brand apart from other coffee houses on the high street, Rinkoff has taken a look at some of what's going to be on offer, and taken design cues from the hottest trend predications for autumn/winter 2019. Here's what she came up with:

The key looks were showcased at Caffè Nero on Long Acre, Covent Garden, at the UK's first ever catwalk in a high street coffee shop.

Discussing the project, Rinkoff said: "From Prada to Zara, the world of food with its rich textures and vibrant colours has inspired fashion designers for generations and 2019 is no different. I love a challenge and it has been great fun working with Caffè Nero to team food with fashion. The fresh new menu both looks and tastes amazing –what better way to bring it to life than through the lens of fashion. I hope these key looks will inspire fashion lovers to live, breathe and eat the up-and-coming trends ahead of London Fashion Week!"

Will Stratton-Morris, CEO at Caffè Nero UK, added: “Our stylish new food offering has been crafted using the highest quality, Italian-sourced ingredients to ensure our food quality mirrors our premium and award-winning, hand crafted coffee, superior store design and first-class service, whilst continuing to strengthen the premium nature of the brand. To mark the launch of the transformational new menu, which is a real step change for coffee shop food, and following months of hard work, we wanted to have some fun and are delighted with Gayle’s creative interpretation of the stunning new dishes. From colourful open salad bowls to artisanal sausage rolls, vegan salads and light and indulgent sweets - we’re confident that the new menu will make every day food occasions exceptional for our customers and give great value for money!”
